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.

What is a PODBIN, Camping Pods for sale log cabins LV

Camping Pods, they are all the rage now, “AGAIN” so many people are looking for them, and so many people are buying “Podbins”, yes “Podbins” and I coined the phrase” remember Kevin Langham coined the phrase PodBins”  I also coined the phrase Clock House Log Cabins, Twinskin Log Cabins and now “Podbins”, and as the popularity of garden offices and Pods for camping in the UK resurges again camping pod sadly the build quality because of demand is becoming criminal and that’s where PODBIN came from…. You heard it first here on LV…

I have added a few images, or what I like to say is my designs from the heart, at what can be achieved with in a small space, yet giving everyone a fantastic feeling (warmth love and home) because when you’re at home your safe, when you are in my Pods, your home, just with a twist. But the love of my design, and the warmth of the build quality, envelops you in the spirit of a great stay and Holiday! 

Also my camping pod designs, that have been copied, and sadly some look or are in the PODBIN department, one company comes to mind, yep! Old man Keith from Arch Leisure is a prime example of that Podbin production, evolution, sadly Keith the owner has been selling toilets and showers, also low end caravans for so many years, he believes his copies of my pods, and a few other peoples designs,  but done in his way, the dreaded awful disgusting caravan way, in other words he manufacturers them like a caravan, they may look like a pod, but in reality they are just a curved version of a very cheap and cheerful ugly awful caravan, as its in his blood,  just shows where him and other like him are headed, extinction! , as are many others. The British public do not want a Caravan type environment any more, it’s time to wake up and treat our public with respect, we are not in Joe Butlins time, it’s gone, I know your reaching 70 soon Keith and you think you know what people want, you don’t, that’s why your prime business is toilet and showers. And even they are awful. Sorry, but they remind me of going to football as a child the smell and the doors hanging off and showers not working properly, and everything slippery and dirty. I hope the awful looking Podbins you have built, last and do not leak and that whoever has bought them understands you know nothing about nothing in construction and you have sold them a PODBIN.

Very soon, I will start a Blog and I and a structural engineer will rip the heart out of 999.9% of pods manufactures, and advice you the customer what is and is not safe to purchase. Safety firstly comes in structure, and that means a professional timber craftsman, I do not mean a chippy, I mean a guy who understands the force that mother nature can and does frequently attack small and large buildings. You must not forget we manufacture houses on a daily basis to high spec of TEK 17 which is the Norwegian build regulations, and we build over 250 houses a year this means we understand what is and is not good when it comes to manufacturing, as we are considered the best of the best

Mother nature attacks what ever it is, a pod a house a barn, and domestic building, or non domestic building the same, principles stay the same, and we must take into effect the wind loads, weights and pressures and the pressure inside and outside, how to tape a timber frame so the Sat rating is in the 0.2 mark, not like in the UK where its 10 ( Air sealing)  and how to keep a pod from being blown over or allowing the wind to cave in the roof, and all these small details goes into our pods, because we put our pods in extreme places, which means our camping pods are at the top end of the market, and not to be mistaken for the PODBIN’s out there and

Lastly the windows and doors must be certified against Fire, and theft, also have the CE stamp attached. And make sure they have not used the window or door frame as a key part of the strength of structure, this would mean the glass can blow out, under high pressure, many back street companies do this and not realise what they are doing, standing in front of a large window and it explodes, well, you can imagine what the insurance company would do with you, and police, plus the health a safety, so be smart. Always. Think LV, as we have done all the thinking for you.

Tan House, Tan Office, the cost is about 9000 pounds ex works , but is 100% amazing, made this about 8 years ago, yes we are ahead of everyone always. Siberian larch , fully kitted out!

…………………….The best is LV………………..

If any one asks me to make this,,,,,,, NO…………Never again,,,,, awful desgin, manufacturing it was a nightmare and alot of amazing Russian Northern Pine C24 graded timber was cut to make this.

Above shows you that our camping pods are built for strength in so many ways. But also they are the only pods built by senior house manufacturers who understand everything about everything. We lead the way, the others attempt to copy. ,,,,,,,,,BEWARE OF THE PODBINS!

Please look how thick the roof is above, this timber frame beautiful A++ building can with stand anything mother nature will ever throw at her!

Yes I know you love it, and so does the owner he bought quite a few! it’s not about fighting to win a camping pod order that counts for us, it’s about making sure that we treat everyone as family, and as family we want you to get the best, and the best, comes from us, our thoughts are not driven by our wallet but by the love of our designs workmanship and longevity, beauty of what we manufacture to blend in and compliment the surroundings. And to offer people a new kind of feeling, and new warmth and a new love in there lives!

We don’t just build amazing pods, we also dabble at amazing small houses! oh! and Big…..

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.

Camping Pod, Mega-Family Unit 2014

Camping Pods have now been on the market for more than 5 years, as one of the forerunners in this market, and with a totally unique camping pod design we have designed yet another amazing, Mega Pod –Family Camping Pod for camping sites, fishing Lakes and so on… We have found that a lot of other camping pods on the market are not fit for purpose, and poorly constructed, where ours are designed firstly and before all else for public safety.

Also our camping pods are designed to offer a huge amount of natural light.

When designing our new family camping pod, we have taken a lot into consideration.

Our windows and doors as you can see are uniquely designed to allow copious amounts of light in, with toughened windows and doors, and a full bath room, bedroom and lounge area, your guests will not just experience a 5 star camping holiday, they will experience luxury!

Do not settle for less. logcabinslv.co.uk, the leading light in design.
