floating log cabins 03So how do you go about getting a Log Cabin to float on a river, lake, or estuary,?

floating log cabins 04Simple really, you attach it to super strong floats, and when I mean floats I mean professionally designed floats that keep the cabin 2 feet from the water surface.

floating log cabins 06These floats also are super at keeping the cabin extremely steady and from it bouncing around and bobbing up and down.

camping pods

Camping Pods

Camping Pods

When the camping pods were first introduced to the public they were very simple structures.

When I say simple, I mean, they were built simply, with cheap windows and doors, and the construction was , well! a few 28mm T&G boards, and cheap simple tiles.

Then we introduced our amazing, professionally well built, side entrance camping pod, and we took the market over night.

The feedback, we received, was more orders,  we have not looked back since then.

Camping Pods 2So why are our camping pods, the best on the market? And why are our camping pods actually the cheapest?

LV camping Pods are the only camping pods that are fitted with quality CE approved hand made glulam wooden Trada Certified windows and doors! Painted to your choice of colour.

Log Cabin Holidays in the UK

Log Cabin Holidays in the UK

Log Cabin Holidays in the UK   2      Holiday companies more and more are now offering their clientele to stay in a rustic looking cabin style chalets.

Log Cabin Holidays in the UK   3This kind of off grid holiday lifestyle is becoming more and more popular, and with the eco badge stuck firmly to the brochure.

Log Cabin Holidays in the UK   4 How many log cabins that are portrayed as really  green and eco holiday are honestly eco and green.

Were they built to earn money, or save our planet?

Log Cabin Holidays in the UK   6Or are our old Mass Produced Awful BS3632 Caravan type buildings better?

When I look through holiday brochures, looking at the Log cabins offered out for rent, I see most of the time a glorified garden version.

And if one was to use an HD thermal Imaging Camera and scLog Cabin Holidays in the UK   7an the outside, you would see almost a bonfire effect looking back at you through the screen.

Sadly 99.9% of holiday log cabins in the UK are not designed to hold eco credentials.

Most lOg Cabins are designed to put beds in, and give the feeling of being in a log cabin environment.Log Cabin Holidays need to be greener.

Whats really amazing is that the largest bill of all and every holiday park is the electric bill.

Energy waste is mostly caused by  insufficient insulation, a cheaply manufactured building, and zero foresight from the park owners.

Log Cabin Holidays in the UK   8I personally think holiday parks that are wasteful should be fined, also i believe it important that we do start looking at some kind of building regulation for holiday chalets.

We are now looking to supply a very large holiday park in the lake District, Cumbria with very eco log cabins, the lake district is a perfect place to showcase quality.

Sadly we have found that the lake district seems to have high amount of bulk superstore rubbish type residential log cabins.

Everywhere. single skin and from manufactures that do not offer quality, just low prices, and this is where the market fails.

With our Eco Twinskin Engineered Glulam Log cabins heading up there.

We are sure that the market will repel mass produced cabins and actually start to purchase cabins solely manufactured and designed for a true ECO Holiday experience.

Log Cabins 2017

Over the many years have been designing log cabins and timber buildings for many years,


In those many years, we have seen a positive shift in the industry.


In 2001, we would say that most timber interlocking buildings-log cabins were bulk manufactured to sell, not last.


Quality levels were low, but then so was the pricing.


In 201 log cabins were almost 50% cheaper, yet the timber price, oil and standard of living is the same then as now!


Also in those days, it was OK to sell a 28mm log cabin, which was say 4m x 5m.


Now 28mm logs are used for a lot smaller cabins, and only a few companies still offer this shamefully thin log.


Manufacturing -Offering 28mm log cabins comes with responsibilities, yet few who offer these care if the buildings are fit for purpose.

Profit is the key factor.


If you are looking for a quality log cabin, and you want to be sure that will will last the test of time, please send us an email.

Videos of Log Cabins from LV

LOG CABINS LV are always trying to bring to market quality log cabins- timber buildings.

We strive daily to design new and exciting cabins, timber buildings -glulam structures.

Timber Buildings Log Cabins

Because log cabins  LV are able to offer these log cabins shown in these videos in many different thicknesses,

Sizes of different log thickness are  44mm, 70mm.90mm and in glulam (laminated timber also).

We also can offer Bespoke.

In each video you will notice LV has tried to offer a different style of building, be in a Dutch barn roof look, or our DF cabin roof look, these cabins are all under 2.5m high and they are all with in the 30 sq m.

Our under 2.5m log cabins, which includes our dutch barn roof range need no permission in the UK.but  It is always best to check with your local authorities.

If you’re looking for a quality log cabin in say 45mm, then do not look at the bulk superstore type websites, as all you will find sadly is mass manufactured rubbish.

And most of the time  is way over priced and sold by people who think profit first not quality.

Our new Dutch Barn Range of log cabins are fantastic in design, and priced to sell, yet the level of manufacturing quality is second to none, we have been in the market longer than any other company in the UK, we live and breath timber buildings.

A few things you should look for when buying a log cabin. How long has the re-seller been in business,!

I am not saying that this is a bad thing, being a new dealer is good, but most dealers in the UK are just supplementing their income selling cabins with another business they may have, these type of companies often go bankrupt. so beware. We are able to offer cabins from 28mm to 380 mm glulam .

Mobile Park Homes

Mobile Park Homes,

Making the final decision on whom to purchase your building- log cabin from, there are many things you need to take into consideration.

Firstly, you need to ask yourself is the company you are thinking of purchasing your building from are not up to the job!.

Sadly….So many people purchase buildings solely on price. And when the winter comes and the rains fall, their cabins leak and the timber twists and eventually gives up and splits, they always wish then, and only then that they had bought wisely, not miserly.

Mass Bulk Log Cabin manufacturing superstores wins each and every day because of this… Incredibly, low pricing, incredibly low quality.


But what if you are looking for something that is not a superstore type bulk manufactured building, what if you are looking for a Residential Timber Frame Quality 2 -3 or 4 bed lodge, who do you turn to? Do you turn to companies that shout that their buildings are built to the BS 3632, or do you look for a residential timber park home that actually comes to building regulations?

Are you looking for a quality timber frame building that will last the test of time?


I know a lot of you out there are saying, that the price of a park home manufactured to UK’s Building Residential Specification will be vastly more expensive, and guess what? You ,,,,Would be wrong!


Each and Every BS 3632 park home structure we have been asked to do a comparison on, size and height, against our build specification, we have been cheaper, and our specification to that of anything manufactured to BS 3632 is superbly better.


And this is where Log Cabins LV comes into its own, we design the future in Park Home Living.

We alone believe sadly that park Homes should not be manufactured to the BS 3632, this is what we call a scam, a way to take your money, and sell you a product that is worthless in less then 10 years, the only one actually earning is the park home.


There are some out there that actually believe this, and actually now are changing the way park homes should be manufactured, and those companies are now buying in, and offering their customer base just this, Park Homes, that are built to a incredibly high standard, in fact their park homes are now the best in the UK..


So we would like to give a massive shout out to Alex that has just ordered 200 of these type of buildings, that are not just to build regulations, Oh!!!! No!!!! Alex has gone the whole hog and built his whole park to being that of Passive. Yes Passive Park Homes, our dream buyer, someone who actually cares about the environment, cares about his customers investment, and has got a shock when he got the bill, I think is words were something like? Really, and his diamond white teeth through his ever presence smile could be seen in Timbuktu.


If you really want the best, and are fed up with so much bullshit! give US A CALL…

Quality Log Cabin Windows and Doors

Quality Log Cabin Windows and Doors

What I would like to speak about tonight is not the normal stuff of looking at the bulk superstore type manufacturing cabins that blight our gardens and look like repetitive clones from one garden to another.


The windows and doors that fall apart after one season because of their shoddy construction and poor workmanship.


I want to speak about the lies told on websites that sell log cabins that go unnoticed.

Today there were a group of us on Skype chatting about windows and doors, and how companies tell absolute lies.


OK for instance, a company said, I quote, we manufacture the best windows and doors in the industry as a standard fit?

So then this company goes onto explain how their glass unit, that is not even CE certified, which is 4m x 6m x 4m is the best in the business.


What a load of rocking horse pooh, 14mm double glazed units, that are not even certified are the best the industry has to offer. Looks like the person that wrote that, never surfs the web of knows what his competition is offering.


To be honest I would not say logcabinslv are the competition, we are the leaders in this market, due to the fact we have been here longer than anyone, and have the largest range and largest design portfolio than anyone.


But we also offer better, and we offer it as standard.


Our Deluxe Range of Windows and Doors are CE certified, 24mm thick, and come sprayed to your choice of colour. No one offers that but us.


There are companies that claim to sell this, but actually its a bulk superstore lie, as only we offer this in the market for 44mm log cabins.


So how it we can, they can’t, I hear you ask, well it’s quite simple.


Log Cabin manufacturers, the Bulk trashy superstore kind of set ups manufacture in Bulk, and I mean mass bulk, Mass, go onto their websites and they will show you cabins piled high on top of one another, and who wants 20 tons of timber sat on their cabin before they get it? Seriously, do you?


Anyway, the reason these mills can not produce decent windows and doors is because of profit, and the way to get the profit margins high is pack them high, and manufacture the superstore way, which is cheap and cheerful.


And this is why windows and doors in 99.9% of log cabins are crap!

Also the manufacturing of windows and doors is important, and log cabin mills do not tend to invest in quality machinery for the manufacturing of windows and doors, its normally crude, and set up for volume not quality.


Moreover, this is where we are VERY different, our windows and doors are manufactured in a factory that solely manufactures windows and doors, also these mills are all certified manufacturing departments, CE certified, ISO and Trada.


Log Cabins LV do not just manufacture the best windows and doors that is a fact, we also do not bulk manufacture log cabins.

In today’s world of Eco-Renewable drumming by all governments across the EU to increase taxes on mr joe public, for planetary welfare, and our problem of mass house shortages, it is hard to believe that governments around Europe have not looked at manufacturing Glulam (laminated) log houses to relieve the house shortages which have been brought on to us by mass immigration and the selling off of government stocks, and not forgetting a birthrate that is quite simply horrifying.



Why is it that most governments say that they sponsor and are fully behind the eco vibe when they give hundreds of millions in tax relief to companies that build not just awful, but unsightly brick and block first time buyers homes, that are poorly insulated and have an absolutely bulk mass produced superstore feel to them, that most first time buyers shy away from because aesthetics have fallen to the way side, and profit is put into first place.


We have heading to the Lake District (Cambria) some fantastic Engineered Glulam Log Lodges, that are not just up to full building regulations, they exceed them, yet the price for this kind of structure absolutely kills brick and block house prices dead!

Plus the aesthetics of this kind of structure truly does put brick buildings to shame,

plus the insulation value of this kind of build is so way ahead of conventional builds.


If you are first time buyers, have some land, planning permission, and you are on a tight budget, then a glulam construction could be what you are looking for.


An Engineered Glulam Laminated House is a super strong construction which will not just last the test of time, but will inspire you and all others to rethink what a eco home of the future can be.
