Lithuania , Latvia, Estonia. Danger…….

If you are thinking of buying a log cabin, timber building, camping pod, etc, direct from the manufacturer in any of these countries, be warned, the only way to pay is to a UK company, if the company you pick does not have a UK business account in their company name and merchant account to boot, and can not accept your deposits by card then sadly choose another company. Better to spend £100 more and be safe than £100 less and loose the lot.

I will tell you why, because if there were to be a War, you have absolutely no way of ever getting your money back, as the banks you paid would vanish, and so would your deposit, and in this period of time, £50 to some is a huge amount.

I know I am going to get a-lot of bad reviews on this, but its the truth, and as a Britt, and as the guy who started this whole Log Cabin affaire 22 years ago, way before everyone, to Britain, I feel its my duty to warn everyone, what could be in-front of us. If your a dealer and your mill ask you for a deposit, ask them now to pay by card. If they say no, then think about loosing the lot.

If Russia, and the “if” word is now a Massive IF leaning towards could happen word, if President Putin decides to take the corridor from Grodare District to Kaliningrad Калининград, then the Baltic’s are completely cut off, Germany has already pulled its troops from here LT, thinking it needs them at home, also Germany has started buying Gas and Oil from Russia again with the Ruble, so as you can see things change daily, and because of this, a UK bank is the safest place to put your money, and paying with a credit card, the safest way to do it. Also at home, if the mill goes bust that your dealer is using, then make sure you pay your dealer with a card, no cash. Stop using cash to pay for log cabins, BBQ Huts, Pods, Timber Frame Buildings, timber frame and Log Holiday Accommodation, Garden Offices etc, , etc, its too dangerous now to loose money, no matter how much.

Our prime ( Boris) minister has been giving billions away to Ukraine, and because of this the Brits are not thought of too well by the Russian population, as ever solider killed is blamed on us for supplying the bullets, shells and missiles, guns that killed them, ( I live here so I know what they are thinking and saying to each other) so if this was to become again Russian territory your claims for loss of money to a Russian court against a company here would fall completely on deaf uncaring ears. This is all a big IF, but are you willing to gamble £6000/£10.000/£40.000, on something you and I have no control over. This is why most companies are leaving here, or closing down and owners moving to Turkey, Spain etc.

This is why I say, pay into a British Company, with a card, and no problems. if the company is big enough it will have a UK account and Merchant account, if it does not…..
Well! its your gamble……. We behave in the right way, and at no time is your money at risk.

To all the haters, I just don’t care!!!!! Its the Truth………

Being Safe when buying a Log Cabin.

For many years we have been designing buildings, be it a passive house, camping pod, log cabin, or Twinskin site office, we have just about done the lot, and as a Britt, I understand that quality is everything. For many years I took my personal designs, which went from 10 to over 7000, and designing houses, is not easy, also everyone of my cabins is unique to us. I then gave my orders to a manufacturer we had helped start up, when we met this mill it had no staff, no timber, no machines, zero, and we took it from a empty building to one of the best players in the market, that were ( I say were) extremely good, but sadly this company did not invest in its good fortune, which was my market share and its turnover and profit. We worked so incredibly hard, but what we realised being in the middle, was that the mill earned quite good money, and so did the dealer, the UK dealer earned more than us the designers and manufacturers combined. So I decided to sack all our dealers, one by one they were let go, a few were very very unhappy, trust pilot is full of there hidden agendas, but I do not care, I don’t, I do not need a greedy person selling my designs, then I changed mills, ( Thank god new owner is a liar and a creep) as I had asked this mill repeatedly to manufacture better windows and doors, (10 years of asking) and no I was not going to pay more, as the price for cabins from them was so high and monthly they were rising prices, 5%. 3%, 7% and, and they sadly started manufacturing their cabins from local logs, = Quick Grown Pine, ask a Britt to tell you the truth, as the Lithuanians will bend the truth about 1000km slightly to where they purchase their, lumber, logs, timber. 99.9% use quick grown pine, local, which sadly is good for burning or paper, and not very good for cabins.

Also manufacturing cheap windows and doors, they are masters, but to manufacture windows and doors, they are crap at it, seriously the whole market is crap at manufacturing windows and doors, I designed some with a small company out in the sticks, they were very good, but not perfect, they had 2 massive hinges, , and now I think our cabins are 100% the best of the best in the UK, you have to pay the price for the best, but it’s a life time cabin, not a 5 years wonder.

I hate to say this, but now is the time to only purchase a cabin from the Baltics with a Debit or Credit Card, and it must be through a UK Registered LTD company, Not Lithuanian company, or bank, as they are all sadly now going bust, and you will lose your money, there is too many uncertainties in this end of the world.

I was always told if the website is not finished and they have copied too much from British Sites, and they do not have an international bank account, i.e in the UK with a Merchant account attached to that, then steer wide, as you will lose your money. Merchant accounts means the bank trusts you, no merchant, no trust.

I am not being racist to the Lithuanians, not at all, I love this country , I have been here 22 years, but to trust an unknown company here, that you hardly know, and pass over money, complete MADNESS! And most can not take credit card payments.

OK.. who designed the Clock House? Yes me, and so many people have copied them, and not to a standard we would say wow, check this out.
So check this one, it’s for sale for £5000, they say hardly used and blar blar blar.

OK, lets look at this cabin fairly and honestly, its been up years, it would be impossible to separate the logs with out breaking them, you would need to find the manufacturer of this cabin, I know, as its my design and I know every one who copied my designs, the windows and doors are pants, notice anything, something missing, yes thats right gutters, so the water has been running down the walls, this cabin is in very poor condition. The reason I mention this is that this Log cabin old version Clock House has shrunk( direct down) , so the boards that were 44mm x 115mm or what ever they were, are now 43mm x 111mm or what ever, but not what it was when it was bought new, it has shrunk, and to try and get a replacement log , impossible. Custom made, and custom price.

Now if you look below and see what a you should be looking for, a Clock House with Pedigree.

The Cost Of this is £8200 plus vat, Plus you pay into a UK bank, UK Compnay, and with a Credit / Debit Card.

Never pay in to a foreign Cash Bank Account, and in cash. Worst thing you could ever do. There is not one compnay here I would pay that way! NONE!

When a company has lots of dealers, it means £2000 goes to the dealer no mater what( thats your money) I sacked one dealer because he charged a customer £9.000, for just handling the cabin and delivery. And 90% of them go bust with in 3 to 5 years, owing the tax man 100’s of thousands. Or sadly ripping off the customers, or both.

To claim under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act, the item or service you bought must have cost over £100 and not more than £30,000.

You don’t have to have paid the full amount on your credit card – the card company is liable even if you made only part of the payment (a deposit, say) on your card. 

It’s the value of the goods you’re buying that is key – not the amount paid on the card.

For example, if you ordered a new car from a car dealer and paid a £500 deposit with your credit card and the balance of £10,000 by cheque, you would be covered for the whole £10,500 if the dealer went out of business and you didn’t receive your car.

You have the same rights against your credit card company as you have against the retailer or trader. 

So if your claim is for a repair then this is the claim you would put to your credit card provider – you wouldn’t be able to also ask for a refund, for instance, if you were actually claiming for a repair or a replacement item.

You won’t find this on other companies websites, because they just don’t care , they don’t want you to know your rights, you must always pay with a card, and to a UK LTD company, not sole trader, but LTD you will get your money back if you do not get your product. However saying that, you must be fair also, and negotiate, but thats for a limited time, like 3 minutes… lol……

In Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, it would be very hard, especially now we are out of the EU—UK—— of ever getting your money back, they like to receive but not return. They will make excuses, then block you. Not all, but I would say nearly all, they are like Trust pIlot full of crap! Recession brings out the worst in everyone.

When you just know the person is wrong!

All bad today sadly!

OK, customers, and the ones you want and the ones you don’t, the ones that lie and waste time and the ones that just buy, pay, get the log cabin, pod, delivered and are happy.
OK, lets start with Mr X, he asked me for 18 prices, 18, and each cabin progressively became more and more expensive, and like most people who are unsure of what they want they go for bigger and bigger, however, when they say the own a plane, and you think, they don’t tell you but in the back ground you can hear planes, your thinking, ok this massive 15m x 5.5m twinskin had better be heavy, so mother nature does not blow it away, so you twin skin it, make the roof heavy and just make sure the cabin is fit for purpose, not a a pile of crap,

As you can see , there is a lot of area for the wind to build up both sides, and if you know anything about buildings, this building, theoretically could blow over, or the roof could be completely ripped off , which is a-lot of weight and wood flying about in the wind remember everything is possible, and a twin skin version of this with out heavy roof, tie downs, metal rods going through the walls, in 44mm x 44mm, is about £25.000, with all the extras, and double roof and heavy glulam purlins and really getting this building near to build standards, close on £30.000, and it will not blow over, loose a roof, we have added toughened double glazed tilt and turn windows and doors, insulated the middle from the two sides, this building is simply the best , we know the and no one can touch the quality of the build, design or the pedigree .And if I designed it, it must be the best, I look for what can go wrong first, this eye to detail means my cabins last longer than anyones. I was told yesterday that our prices are very keen compared to the rest of the market.
So Mr X I have planes took one look at the price was extremely rude, and said do not phone back. Now the only upsetting thing about this , is getting my boys who work extremely hard to price up so many buildings, waste of time and energy. And MrX now is left getting his building from the low end , budget end of the market! but he will still have to pay 20+ as he has no clue what costs what!

So please if you call us, do not waste our time, your time, tell us what you want, how much you have to spend and lets move on! Thanks.

Arrrrrrrrr last thing, when you see a cabin that has a base like this, run……. talk about BAD!!!! This is awful…. If I was the customer to this cabin I would have demanded my money back for both base and cabin.the base should always be the same size as the cabin walls, flush, there must not be a sill anywhere around the bottom, otherwise you get water ingress underneath the cabin equals rot. This was built by an idiot. Its called “ingamess” in most baltic companies, means i do not know what I am doing.

We have a copy of the site page this comes from, and what they are bragging to have done, at the moment its —-ing crap! If I were this compnay I would concentrate on what you know, not what you don’t. And sorry if you are the customers who bought this….

Designed and Manufaturered by a Britt, For a Britt to go into a British Garden!

Please remember back in 2014 i was warning people about good and bad, way before 90% of the market existed, helping people, telling people the truth. please read this……

Its Old, its gospel and it still applies today as it applied back 8 years ago………. Imagine….

Hard Customers.

You know you get these days when you just want to shout and say, your design is crap, its going to fall down, and you have too many windows and its too thin, and you want it for nothing, and you want the best and you moan at the price and all the time, we, me, are thinking actually it was a we, as three of us all thought, fuck this design is dangerous and shit. But what can you say, you try and help, but all you get is the customer really not listening, and not believing because he has spent hours listening to wankers on the phone who know nothing about cabins, and boring the poor customer to suicide, and then when he actually lands on our pages and says why are you slightly more than the worst fucking company in Lithuania, I just sit back in shock and am mortified.

Log Cabins are not easy to design, and in this day and age, they are really hard things to manufacture as most of the components are hard to find, thats the quality parts, we only use quality, the cheap crap, is everywhere, most bulk mills will have containers and containers of rubbish handles and doors, and why are we not as cheap as these other mills, simple….

Harrods———–Tescos.

You want your Cabin to come with quality attached at every level and pay for it, you would go to Harrods.
If you were looking for a cheap, off the self, OK cabin, where would you go, Tescos.

And thats the difference from us to them.

Simple look at this.

Take a look at the first 2 photos, you might think, they look ok, looks good quality, and the price OK… Well you are deluded or on a £4 budget, as these are the worst hinges and worst doors for a good quality log cabin which were ever manufactured. Awful….
Nothing even looks remotely hard wearing or robust……….

Now check these out, these are our standard doors and windows, and this is just the beginning on why we are picked time and time again , because our quality is second to none, there are companies out their now copying our look, but a copy handbag is a copy handbag!

All hardware German.
All windows and doors Aluminium rain drip trays x 2 on windows.
Windows fitted with a 5 point locking tilt and turn system.
Doors also come with 5 point locking system.

Before we tell you, you tell us what size purlins the compnay your thinking of buying from offer in their price, these hold the roof up. Important.

Lastly yes, we are lucky to say we pick our customers, we get about 30 requests a week, we pick just 10 from these. I might say yes and then have a customer start demanding, this equals returned deposit immediately. If you want the best then you play by our rules, which are exceptionally fair, if you don’t then go and buy the crap out there which is for sale! I do not care, my customers are important to me, if your not one of mine, then i am not loosing any sleep over if your cabin is safe, if everything is quality. if it gets to you on time, all bit and bobs with it, and making sure delivery is a pleasant exsperiance for you. And at no time allowing anyone to be rude to you. A zero free Drama way of getting a cabin, no middle men.And as more and more customers are coming direct, paying with a credit card and understanding its the best way to get the best of the best, and luckily i am speaking to people I like.

We are a British Company, we also have a British Merchant account, which you pay directly into with your visa or debit card. You are not paying into a foreign bank, which I would strictly suggest against doing, I won’t even do that. So with Factory Cabins you are getting it direct from us here in Lithuania, but the best part its paid into a UK bank.

Please remember it was us 21 years ago that put the first 40mm 5m x 5m super star log cabin onto the market, then we designed the clock house, then the twin skins and 28mm flooring and the mad thing we did was design over 7000 cabins. which means we have more designs made already than other company. It means we know our stuff.

Please look at our windows and doors and the other companies, and you will see ours are designed to last and the other companies are designed for bonfire night.
It really depends on how proud you are on what you manufacture.

Before you buy a cabin, please come to us and compare, get all there details and then get ours and we will beat them hands down for quality each and every time.

And Lastly if your buying rubbish, cheap mass produced crap like a £299 pound shed….. just think if the tree that had to be cut for that shed to be made , sawn up was worth all that effort.

Credit Cards, and UK builders.

OK , so lets talk about whats what. Firstly, I have written on my blog so many times about cowboy buildings, thats in all the market, shed, cabins, houses, timber frame and brick, ((( UK))) you look for the solution to a problem you might have, which is normally space, and what happens you go to the Yellow pages and pic the one that they say is the best, you then have some guy comes round, and prices up your job, in the UK any kind of construction starts from ( not shed or log ) but Timber , Brick, Brick being the one that most people jump on, then deciding it will not help much when it comes to being quick, no fuss, or mess.

So, prices….

The cost of building a 2 bedroom house in the UK is anywhere between £187,625.00 to £281,437.00 the average size is FROM 60 SQ METERS TO 105 SQ METERS, depending. ( we are not talking about quality buildings, we are talking about the mass produced crap, which are generally called starter homes, thin walls, zero ( what we consider to be nothing) insulation and the cheapest double glazing the company can find).

Most Normal houses start with a price if completely detached about £220.000, and we are not talking about a quality, amazing , superb, etc. they are OK.. Building costs in the UK start from £1,950 per square metre.

56.16 SQ METER. And the starting price is , ready , FROM £239.995 56.17 Square Meters.

This is for seriously a cheap manufactured house. I could not find anywhere how they built this house and with what, what materials and quality of them. And the problem is, it’s bunched up with loads of other houses. Are they using graded timber, or just unseasoned knotting timber, are they using quality insulation or just cheap and cheerful low grade rock wool, or some cheap foil back??

Do they love what they do, or just your money! This question I ask everyone who does any work for me, be it the mechanic or my electrician. If its for the money only, then later, find someone new who really enjoys what he does.

There is Land to be found, and there is space, and you can get planning, and you can make your house far better, cheaper costs, and almost off grid if you know what you’re doing.

All I am saying is think before you start to spend loads of money on a house that costs loads of money to run…..

And, in 2022, a cost estimation for a house is anywhere between £1,750 and £3,000 per m2.

Now check this out……… This is a build regulation that is far surpass the UK build regulations, it makes a mockery of it.

The main requirements for TEK17 are low U-values of house constructions and airtightness of the structure.

  • Floor construction U-value – not more than 0,15 W/m2K
  • Outside wall – not more than 0,18 W/m2K
  • Roof – not more than 0,13 W/m2K
  • Windows and doors (with frame) – not more than 0,8 W/m2K

We can go higher on the U value, and not for a great deal more, But! You will loose some internal space of your unit.

This way Norwegian authorities push new buildings to be energy-efficient and this way the country is leading in the world according to high standards for buildings.

This is what you should be aiming for…. But can your builder A-afford to build this kind of building, given current price levels, yes, he could if he were us, even cheaper, and Factory means Factory, and the TEK 17 build reg is way out of most people’s dreams.

Not because its super expensive, but because people just go to the wrong people to purchase their dream home.

Firstly Credit Cards, they are perfect, always pay deposits, or whatever you buy with a card, your protected.
I have said many times, that builders now are going broke, why? because they spend the profit, and keep the material cost of that month in their pocket, profit comes at the end, not beginning, remember that and you are always safe, that’s how a good business works, also work out a payment schedule, not done, not paid.

And as everything rises in price, daily, weekly, your builder’s price is gone, and a new one is to follow, or they go bust. So, what do you do…? Call us…

Last words today…. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS PAY WITH A CREDIT CARD!!!!

Factory Cabins 2022

Next Video…..Drums beating,,,,,,,,,,,, the first ever side entrance Pods ever to be shipped to anyone ever….. So its history, and its had nearly 500.000 hits on you tube, not bad for one of our little little pods.

What is good Timber and what is Bad Timber.by Karl..

Many of you know what is good and bad, if its not black/ blue stained and looks ok, to most thats how they judge the quality of timber.

To other people, we look at how its planned and cut, treated and notched.
So heres a small lesson.

This is Russian, Quality Timber.

Russian Quality Winter Cut Timber.

Then there is Baltic Cut Timber, most companies use this if they are manufacturing bulk cabins, as its cheap, and honestly, nasty,

As you can see the difference immediately.

99.9% of people use this timber to manufacturer their sheds, cabins etc from, why , cost, the cost to you is high to them low, the longevity of the manufactured item months not years.

So when your picking a log cabin be smart….. Your money was hard to come by, spend it wisely. In the land of sheds and cabins , lies are told more than truths.

Fact Winter Cut timber is the best!
Fact we only use winter Cut timber.
Fact buy direct saves you 1000’s and you get the best quality their is to have.
And lastly, if you want the best, come to the company that designed 99.9% of all cabins in the market to date.
We invented the twinskin system, and were the first to manufature, market and sell.
The clockhouse, the aurora, coin phrased the term garden office for a 4m x 5m log cabin, and so much more.

We are the longest running company in the cabin industry, and we are proud to say we have made this industry what it is today, by always pushing harder and harder.

Doors and Windows our design, now everyone is copying.

We designed over many years a new set of windows and doors, and how they were to work, they working part has not been copied, but the design has.

Phone Number, and Plans-Photos-Camping Pods

Hi everyone, OK, just a quick Note, so when you ask you will not be upset by my answer.

You want plans, photos and you can not even give me your phone number, well you know what I am going to say. I have so many stupid people call me and tell me they are going to build a camping site, and please can they have our in depth technical drawings of our amazing high quality top of the line camping pods, or our insulated passive housing, what ever, and then they submit that to the council, council say yes because the quality is so exceptionally high, also with safety at the forefront , and the product we offer does not look like a load of chicken sheds on a hill side of natural beauty, and then once the council looks at us they say yes, and then the Holiday Camping site Entrepreneur buys cheap crap, and saves himself 1000’s and puts all your lives at risk.

So we now say no, and no its going to stay, so if your calling me for a plan, it will cost you now a few pennies and you must offer a land line and mobile number. otherwise buy the crap from someone else.

Heres an example of a company that lies and cheats.

This joke of a company do not have my permission to sell my cabins, or use my images, but, Skinner Sheds are a law to themselves. but check out their pricing and they want to sell you a second hand cabin for £2000 more than a new one from us.

Skinners, again stealing our drawings, art work, design, and then over pricing you by ££££££££££££££££££ and its an ex display model! 11.879.00 for a second hand building. Wow, and his windows and doors are shocking, plus ex display means, shrinkage, water damage and stains. all equals, Rubbish for that price.

Yep, this is ours, ours alone, Skinners stole the art work as I said, and he is trying to steal from you £2000 plus with his price, however our cabin to you will have will have amazing windows and doors, his are sadly shed quality, his customer service is like talking to HSBC, and to top it off, his timber is Baltic, he purchases his cabins from a very good high volume mill, but it is a bulk mill, nothing fancy, nothing to write home about. The owner , cool dude, and he makes lots and lots of cabins, who he sells to everyone. Everywhere.

BEWARE OF THE 12-14-16 week waiting time for your LOG CABIN 2020………………………………………………………………………

A small note to the wise, in 2008 we all remember the awful recession, and in that recession a few tricks were played by certain individuals that I will not mention, who are though still trading, and the trick was this, they knew that bad times were coming, so they did something very underhanded, and as a supplier to some of these companies, we lost 100’s of 1000’s of pounds. And the Public lost a lot more.

You must be very wary of the 12 week waiting time scenario, companies who you think you can trust, tell you the waiting time is 12/14/16 weeks, and you pay a deposit, after that 16 weeks has elapses, they go bust! They go off line, and you will receive sorry letters, but your deposit is gone, and then you have to go back to the bank to see if its possible to get your money back, we do not have a waiting time, we are as always pre Virus 4/5 weeks, the same as it was before, and 4/5 weeks after said Virus.

So if your told to wait, be careful………………….

Please remember , 2007, many resellers went broke, pay by card. deposit and for full payment. Be clever, and be happy! Keep your distance and wear a mask!

Regarding purchasing Cabins, Timber Buildings or any item from Self Employed Dealers. Resellers,  who sell our LV or FC brand, if you went to the Self Employed Dealers, reseller,  first, please do not come to us, if you have a question, concerns please call us, but as they are resellers, we are unable to do anything legally to them regarding their prices , Please remember and do not forget a business needs earn money, we can say what we think they should be sold at, but we cannot by law demand they sell it at what we think. So, it’s always best to look at other websites, and please remember our cabins are high quality, so like for like pricing will be difficult, but there are a few companies out there that are the same nearly as ours and you can gauge if the pricing if fair or not.

I say this all the time, pay with a credit card………. It keeps you safe.

We have no claim or claims to our dealerships working practises, or who and what they do. We are not responsible for deposits they may take, and we are not responsible for broken doors, windows, or bad workmanship, fitted kitchens, bad fitted bathrooms etc, we however would like to be told this in writing so we can take the matter to the company concerned and ask them to help you with your concerns.

When we deliver a cabin to our resellers, they are the owner of that cabin, timber building etc, until they give it to you, you don’t even own it, once its delivered to you, you sign for it, but before you do, inspect it, you can refuse to sign for it if there is damage. The law is on your side, however if you have had a bespoke cabin made for you, and there are missing parts, or a broken door, you cannot return this, the company (reseller) has 28 days, or whatever his T and C’s  say in which to fix your Log Cabin. We have some amazing resellers, and they will bend over to help you have that amazing cabin in your garden.

Here is a note to everyone, only buy a cabin if your job is secure, and you can afford it, as most cabins are bespoke manufactured for you, refunds are almost impossible. So please beware of this.

Please take note, please,please always ask if you can pay with a credit card.

Thank you for reading.

Family Log Cabin Accommodation.

Sometimes your house is just not big enough, and you need extra space, then you either think, dreaded BS 3632 Caravan, ( the most expensive garbage sadly our country has ever invented) or a Quick Grown Pine Baltic Cabin from some company that sells crap at low prices and calls them residential which are manufactured from fast grown baltic pine, or you think, quality, and sustainability and you think logcabinslv.co.uk. Not so cheap but quality and quality that will last, and prices that will astound you.

Its easy to make a quality log cabin, you just need the right ingredients, and the right machinery, the right lumber and the right management that like us wants to manufacture the best of the best, and keep pricing low, unlike sadly 99.9% of cabin companies in the Baltics/ UK that can charge as much as 5000 to 10.000 more for a cabin than us, pure greed and now rather stupid. Brexit means, European Cabins will cost more and more, and from us, well, less and less.

Quality log cabins and timber buildings ar low low prices. Please contact us if you want to find out more.

Our ability to manufacture camping pods that are able to take years and years of abuse by thousands of children is very much the test bed of success! And with over 100 Pods in the parks and we have not had one door fail, or Pod leak, this is a tap on the back for us as we believe in our quality, and so do our loyal customers.

Glulam Log Cabins-Glulam Buildings

When purchasing a Glulam log cabin you must be sure that the company you are thinking of purchasing it from are able to offer you superb quality, that their Glulam logs are graded, and that that grade exceeds C32 at all time. Also that they can prove to you that they have sufficient flat bed presses, not vertical to manufacture the Glulam log on.

We are able to manufacture the following from our engineered Glulam timber…

We are also able to offer our engineered glulam twinskin system.

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Residential Log Cabins

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Park homes

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm Glulam Mobile Homes

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Chalets

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Granny Annex

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Garden Offices

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Houses

And so very, very, very much more!!

We are able to offer our glulam timber in the following species.

Pine.

Spruce

Northern Siberian Larch

 

There are too many companies on the internet offering Glulam Log Cabins that are quite frankly rubbish, they stick bits of off cut timbers together and then label the building a Glulam cabin, the correct terminology for this timber is (crap) or finger jointed!

Finger Jointed timber is great for 19mm roof boards, or fence panels, etc, but it is not worthy of the title Glulam Engineered timber.

As you can see by the photos attached to this blog, we are able to manufacture 80m spans with our engineered laminated, Glulam, timber?

80 meters is a massive span, and to accomplish this the Glulam timber used is under incredible strain, and as a company to be asked to build a span of this magnitude, is an honor! But it is also an endorsement of the quality of our Engineered Glulam Timber.

We hate blowing our own trumpet, but who would you rather buy your Glulam log cabin from, Us? Or an unknown?

If your looking for a quality Glulam log cabin, please send us an email.

Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins

We first introduced Engineered twin Skin Glulam Log Cabins to the English Garden market about 8 years ago.

We also introduced them into the Residential Market showing their massive potential and how to save money and increase U values plus offering durability and quality.

There are many companies that truly want you to spend 1000’s more on internally cladding a single solid skin cabin log cabin, just for the sake of cladding their pockets with money on the prefix of giving you a better insulation package.

Most of the time this leads to awful condensation and headaches.

Glulam log cabins which are manufactured by us are not just amazing they are truly an engineering marvel.

Unlike other twin skins solid log cabins in the market, Logcabins.lv have allowed for internal, external movement, and with our new glulam twin skin technology system easily passing building regulations, and getting required U values, we believe that Logcabins.lv will as always push the industry to change their method of build, and invest in better machinery.

The only insulated building available in the garden 8 years ago was either a shed with thin panelised walls, very expensive timber frame conservatories, and of course the dreaded expensive brick and block construction.

Our Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Cabins have over the years changed the way people think about log cabins in general, and their usage.

The Twin Skin Log cabin Design stems from Mother Russia.  Mother Nature in the most northern parts of Russia can reach minus 50 / 60 in the winter, and as lumber is the most freely available building material, cabins with very thick double walls emerged offering amazing U vales, as the internal part of the wall was filled with wood shavings/ sheep’s wool etc.

Our Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins are the best in the UK by far, as our expertise has come from 40 years of experience.

The whole purpose of bringing this building technique to the market place was a passion to offer the best and keep this amazing deign concept alive, but to bring it to modern day standards..

Beware of any company selling Twin Skin log cabins that are not on our dealers list.

The dangers of buying a glulam twin skin log cabin that is not manufactured  on a CNC computerized machine could in the long run be a very expensive mistake. Each and every notch must be inline, and stay true to each and every other notch, a manual machine cannot guarantee this, our investment of 10.5 Million Euros  was needed to make our Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins the best in the UK-Europe offering grading of C32 to C40.

If you are uncertain about anything regarding a Engineered  Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabin please feel free to send us an email enquiries@logcabinslv.co.uk and let us help you.

Do not settle for less. www.logcabinslv.co.uk

120mm Glulam Log Cabins

Cricket Pavilions, Garden Offices, Granny Annex, Stables, Garages, Studios, Commercial Buildings, Schools, Nurseries and many other types of wooden constructed buildings can be manufactured from 120mm glulam logs.

Our Glulam Log Cabins are not just the best; they are unequal in the industry.

Our windows and doors are way above the industry standard, our insulation levels again above industry standard, and our build, well! Once again, way, way above the industry standard. If you look at the photos below you will see the size of the internal purlins, they are way over industry regulations, they are also graded to C40, this grade is unheard of in the UK where Glulam Log Cabins are concerned.

We can offer all glulam cabins with our new dove tail twinskin system, this allows the internal skin to move independently from the external, which combats cold bridging and movement issues. Sadly there are many companies out there calling themselves logcabins experts, who sadly know zero nero about log cabins! Please call us if you would like advice…

All our glulam cabins are pegged through out, they come with stainless steel rods.

We can pre-drill cable holes inside the logs to keep all electric wires hidden from view, we are able to offer a full turnkey solution.

Logcabins.lv is with out doubt the company to turn to if you are looking for quality, honesty, price and product! We are 100% committed to making the market offer more for less!

logcabinslv.co.uk the number one for quality, design, price.

Glulam 80mm Log Cabins to live In – by logcabinslv.co.uk

More and more people are looking to put a log cabin up in the garden and live in it! So they take to the Internet and trawl the web looking for suitable cabins, but sadly 99% of people have no idea really what they are looking for, and are fooled by what the top ranking log cabin Internet sites tell them. Triple thermal walls, insulated this and best that, which most of the time is just blar, blar, blar.

44mm log cabins are fantastic for a multiple of purposes, but they are not residential, and no matter what you put as insulation, they are not designed to be lived in!

Engineered Glulam log cabins are the future for the garden, as prices come down, more and more people understand that wasting their money on cheap mass produced cabins, is a waste.

When looking for a cabin to live in there is many factors to take into account, more than just insulation.
