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.

Camping Pods and Change

Firstly thanks to our long term resellers in countries like Switzerland, who we have been offering our products to their loyal customers for more than 15 years, yesterday we sent 2 Pods and 2 extensions to a new campground that wanted the best.

Camping Pods are manufactured for the Public to enjoy new and exciting experiences so this means they must fall under many different criterias which means that they must be firstly ( safe) manufactured to certain levels of high quality, firstly the windows and doors must be manufactured with toughened glass, next, the roofing tiles must be made of rust proof material, but also act as an armadillo shell protecting the pod from mother nature.

Next the price, sadly the pricing has gone up a lot and I think if it goes up any further they will cease to be manufactured as they are on the limit of being not worth their price tag. I know most companies with make them cheaper by cutting out their guts, cheaper this and cheap that, but! that’s not what we do, ever, because if there were a fire , its a good change you would be in very serious problems.

if you do not manufacture your windows and doors from glulam timber, joinery timber, and you manufacturer them from normal log material, then the chance of them burning quickly is ten fold, that’s why all our windows and doors are manufactured using joinery timber. If you want to save money, then you would use solid timber. if you wanted to save money. then you would cut back on the thickness of the structure, and also cheap tiles, and thinner insulation. Basically cut the guts out.

FactoryCabins.co.uk does not do this, will never do this, ……..NO……..If a customer jumps on one of our resellers and asked them for a lower price and our reseller asks us, and of course they will say use cheaper this and cut that, and make this thinner and forget about the second hinge, use less mastic etc, in other words cut the quality out and sell the public rubbish… Not Us….

What we will not do, ever is what 99.9% of other companies will do.
So the question is this, how do you tell, it’s easy ask them the glass thickness, is it toughened, where does the timber from, what moisture content is it, over 12% then they are quickening the drying process. which means the timber will twist. Also what’s very important, now i would say the worst timber to buy is Spruce, as it takes longer to dry, and the impregnation of it is harder, so its a win win for northern pine,and the mills will not want to use electric or gas, or off cuts to dry this spruce for 4 / 6 days, ( pine max 3/4 days) depending on the size of the kiln, about 100m3 which is normal.
So questions now to ask when looking for a cabin, i know this started off talking about camping pods and finished on what to look for, I know doubt will get more awful disgusting reviews all over the place from companies in the industry, written by unhappy cabin company owners ( resellers) , or resellers of resellers, which is normal for me to get, not that I care, because if this blog helps you choose a cabin that will last more than 10 years, then we feel better.

I was asked to write a blog the other day telling everyone that 3 companies in one small part of Eire (Southern) had gone bust, owing many many many 1000’s of euros to their customers. Now it’s really easy to stop this from happening.

You can pay with your debit , credit card, that’s that.
What you do then, if your willing to wait, is call your bank, tell them the company’s name and how much the deposit your paying, etc. The bank will give you advice if you need it. But they will tell you the best way to pay is with your card as you have insurance guarantees with each payment.
The companies offering zero deposits are selling mass produced crap, which you normally can not bespoke, and sadly these companies play off your fear of getting Your deposit stolen, which is really , creating fear as a sales Technique, which I find is disgusting. Imagine this, some guy buys 10 of one size and 10 of another and and and. Then he says buy today delivery tomorrow, and he doubles his money and is gone in a heartbeat. That’s how most do it so beware.

Buying direct is always the best route of action, always. Our prices are better, we do not play games, we make the cabin, house, Pod on time, and more importantly you always pay us BY CREDIT-DEBIT CARD….

It’s like in every country we tell the public to pay our resellers by Debit-Credit Card, so once again please please pay by card, because if the guy/girl who your buying from possibly goes broke, then your not crying, making dramas for yourself and your sitting back , money back in your account, and your ordering it from another company! No tears no drama, if you just pay by Card!

Thanks for reading this and beware. who you buy from, and always by pay by credit – debit card..

New Pods on their way to a campsite somewhere in Switzerland.

Bad Or Good, YOU DECIDE.

First thought…..
Take away the Britmet Tiles and you get left with a shoddy shed!

Space, space is what you need in a park, also each pod much be a certain distance apart because of fire, and you only put vertical cladding if you know what your doing, this company has no over hang, and puts the facia directly to the outside cladding, which is why you have this problem we pointed out, but as you can see the company that installed manufactured these pods have not done the right thing and gone back, this company is with out doubt cheap and nasty, And I would advice to stay away. This company we sacked, and they still have our designs littered over their website, so we are doing the same, but rather than tell the world these are ours, we are saying, stay away, do not waste your money.

OK… Look at these Pods, I am not going to mention the company that made them, but if you look at them you will notice that the middle ones already have already rot, blue, black stain. “Why are they in this condition, they are new yes? ” yes they are , so why are they in so bad condition, and why are they sitting on the cheapest base ever made, that will fall apart , all these questions you are asking yourself, ( because you are thinking of opening a park) simple, badly manufactured, manufactured by people who actually have no clue in this world what they are doing. Disgusting,,,,,, Over priced Rubbish, we sell pods for £9.000, £25.000, £33.000,£38.000 and even £179.000 and none of them have ever turned out this way, because we tell our customers firstly how to treat them, and secondly what we manufacture is 100% quality, unlike this mess.

When you are looking for a quality camping pod, do not look for ones with roofs made of timber, it means your fucking stupid! If timber was a good product to put on roofs all the houses would have it?
Some people want to earn money so they purchase some land with an amazing view then they put in that view shit pods that look like old army barracks of world war 1, and why, because they had enough to purchase both land and a quality pod, but decided to buy the land and fill it with rubbish. and spend the rest on a holiday, I know you are all thinking I am being cruel, I am not, and this is why so many local authorities ask to see the plans of the Pods and which manufacturer if making them, and yes we are known in this industry as one of the top manufacturers.

Next getting back to this crap laid out on these awful cheap bases,If you look at the boxes on the same wall, these are for electric, and that black, and blue stain means that its a wet area, and then you throw electric into the mix. Not a very safe environment for children, staff, public, anyone for that matter.

Now here is a old , old photo of one of our first Pods, as this was where the standard was started for side entrance pods, and you will notice that rather than companies copy us and make it better, the total opposite has happened,,, its a shame..

Camping Pod 2.4m x 6.0 m first ever manufaturered

this was the first ever 2.4m x 6m Pod made, quality second to none, looks strong and handsome, clean and tidy. Why, because we made it. We manufacture houses, pods are our side line, which is why our customers always end up having us manufacture everything. If you want the best come to us.

Camping Pods for sale

We are house manufacturers, not a shed company or a company that is out just to earn so quick money from making poor quality Camping Pods, as to be honest there are so many about.I saw one the other day it looked like a caravan with a curved inside roof. Seriously, look at this Pod, its awful, it has zero of anything in it, and its a failure to begin with. The company manufacturing these seriously needs to stop and rethink. A camping pod must have feelings and these have zero. they are lifeless. And are designed for one thing, to take money, as many serious campers would not like to stay a night in these. Most campers who are looking for a night in a pod want romantic, and and, not sterile, awful, cheap looking surroundings.

we have many strings to our Cello, and the reason I chose a Chello is because we are educated qualified carpenters, who understand what it takes to make a real timber frame building that will last the test of time. We have also not tried to make our Pods look like, or feel the same as caravans, please we would never use wood as a roofing material,

Here are some really nice photos of our pods and some designs to follow.

This is what we offer…….. Do not be fooled, only this kind of quality is designed and manufaturered by Kevin Langham,, Factory Cabins LTD.

Arch Leisure Camping Pods.

https://www.archleisure.co.uk/camping-pods-for-sale.html

You have to check out this company’s 3d link of the inside of their pods, my god, seriously, talk about rubbish timber, i took a few screen shots of the dead knots on the inside , the inside, imagine, who does quality control, who actually cares about the quality they are selling you.

You should be disgusted at yourself keith for building such rubbish pods, the inside T and G is fucking shameful. And you want people to pay for your crap (((((great value starting at prices from £9,950 + VAT & delivery with optional bunks and double bed.))))) great value you taking some medication.

Talk about cheap nasty pine, with black knots, awful…. absolutely disgraceful. Black knots means they are ready to fall out…….. and this is cheap nasty, pine, the cheapest you could buy.

Some Photos of random pods inside, ours…

Clean, beautiful timber, the LV way!
Hardly any knots at all, why because we have first pick of the timber, not last, (((Keith))
Is that not a beautiful clean canvas!! No knots.
Powerful structural beams!
And before anyone asks, about our beams, don’t, we are the masters of bending glulam beams, we can actually make a beam curved at 48 m long!

Arch Leisure And Google Search

OK, we all search for a company that we truly believe understands their product and knows what their doing, we want to believe that the guy we are speaking to has the ( Minerals) the midas touch, and he knows more than you about his products and i can help you etc. But when a company is selling and advertising using another manufacturer products to sell his lesser quality wares, it makes you wonder if you can truly trust the seller, it brings to mind, look at this Rolex in the box, and not the one i got from China in my pocket. And sadly Mr Keith from Arch Leisure is doing that, he is using my quality camping pods, and then he sadly gives you crap instead , and i challenge him any day to bring one of his awfully built pods to our Factory, and let’s see how much weight the roof can hold, what’s it like in sub zero conditions and what awful sub quality timber is he using, because i do not see anywhere on his website, FSC Chain of custody, or for that matter anything resembling C24 timber.

We parted company with this company last year,and what he is displaying on google is not what he now manufacturers but we had manufactured for him in the past, and there is a reason for this, what he is now selling is ( well what i have just said means there is a problem if you have to show off someone else’s product and not your own…..) Would you trust this guy? His company? Does he run away from problems, is he there when your pods are delivered? Does he actually understand the concept of Podding, and the ethos behind it, or is he just a salesman trying to earn money from any product, and then gone.

If you’re looking for a camping pod, and want to buy direct, not from some guy who never leaves his house other than to go on holiday in Dubai , and trust me Ryan Air does not fly there for £230 return!

Very soon on FactoryCabins.co.uk we will be offering camping pods at ex work prices we are now getting rid of our pod dealers as we did our cabin sellers, and we will be putting up Factory Pricing.

If you really want the best of the best, then stop looking in the UK for Pods, you do not have forests, you do not have quality pods, you never will have, we have the best of the best timber, we also have huge glulam beam lines that can manufacture subframes for the pods that no one in the UK can, plus, we offer better pricing and quality.

“Buy British” I am all for that, but without Russian timber, your housing market would come to a halt. And I mean it would stop. Sadly the UK public are fed crap by the media, and trust me when i say we do as much bad when it comes to spying and killing people as the Russian, Americans etc.

We are not saints in any way, we are lied to so many times a day by our government, it makes me laugh, go home, don’t go home, stay in dooors, go to the pub, wear masks, don’t wear masks, and please tell me, Toilet paper? What the F—–k is all that about, I am English and i just laugh, i think my race has turned into sheep………. We allow every soft stupid , daft dick tell us what to do, we have schools open when they should be shut, and all the money should be spent on finding a cure, that’s it. And now we have a recession which is coming this recession is like a huge fucking dark, powerful wave that will rip through ever family and company around the world, the price of gold is nearly 2000 an ounce, it could go as high as 3000 or 4000 as some predict, and holidays at home will become the largest market in the UK, yet in Jan 1 you leave the EU and tariffs on your timber will completely ( kill your home grown industry of manufacturing) thats happening already as most shed companies and timber companies have shortages, and this will get more common, as why should we supply you with products that you turn into a product that then your businesses sell for 5 times its actual value.

I do not like greedy people, and now your pants are down, and you can not manufacturer a product if you do not have the material to manufacture it.

You should have been planting years ago, yet you tarmaced everything and built high rise buildings, destroyed your green belt and just messed up the country completely, and because you were under the thumb of Germany for so many years you lost yourself in immigrants and laws. Now 1st January 2021 England becomes England, and a lot that went around will go around. But you still don’t have timber. NONE!

Which is why all the best Camping Pods come from us. that’s fact.

And one last fact, we manufacture Schools, Houses, Large Log Cabins , Camping Pods etc, we also have our own glulam production line , we have so many CNC machines it would take a day to list each one, and our buildings are 10/10, we are also not going to go bust. In 2008 so many unlucky, poor people were ( f—–ed) over by backstreet middle men and the large companies, ( none can be trusted, your laws allow them to steal and there is no come back) that actually just bought and sold on, who took deposits, and did not give them to their supplier but kept them, and i am talking about 5 of your biggest log cabin companies in the UK to date, that did this, and ended up owing us huge amounts of money, and customers and banks, and they went bust with a smile and a ” we will be back in a few months once we have restructured, that means gone on holiday with their customers deposits , had a great time and then came back when the threatening emails stopped and the people had stopped throwing bricks through their office windows , and with in a week they had a new managing director, the deposits were gone, customers lost their money and the company carried on as nothing had happened because the websites were allowed to be used by the new managing director, and we over here, now understand and learned from 2008 that the UK is the most corrupt country in Europe for business, in Russia you can and will go to jail, same as Lithuania and Latvia and Estonia, Finland, Sweden if you knowingly just took deposits to keep them, but the UK, lol, never, , and we will not put up with it. so goodbye dealerships. If your government will not protect you, then we will. this is my industry i started off the Likes of Dunster House, Skinners, and so many companies that now sell huge volumes of cabins, and who will will not sell to anymore.

The UK is now sadly now the poor man of Europe, and no one trusts him, your printing money with out anything to back it up thanks to Gordon Brown.

Between 1999 and 2002 the Treasury sold 401 tonnes of gold – out of its 715-tonne holding – at an average price of $275 an ounce, generating about $3.5bn during the period.

Gold now is trading at nearly £2000 an ounce, the man was is as stupid as the day he was born.

There are so many reasons not to purchase from a UK company at the moment, and the word you are looking at is uncertainty. We were here from the beginning, we have the timber, we don’t have depts, we can survive whatever the markets throw at us because we have what you all need, timber. So we are actually the only ones to trust.

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!

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!

The Good And the Bad Camping Pods For sale in UK

We all sit and think how we can better whatever it is we do in life, be it kick a ball, build and sandcastle or design a kitchen, to making dreams come true for other people, but in my case its always been about designing spaces for people to stay in that intrigue and inspire internally and externally.

Which is why my camping pods are I believe the most adorable, of them all, as they were not designed for profit, they were designed to inspire, and to offer those that entered into one of my designs a new look at life, a feeling and a new no drama attitude to the world around them,  and how a small space could be so, so  different.

As a child I always sat in Churches or Cathedrals, when I was able to,  and looked up at the roofs, i have a passion for church roofs, there is one church in particular , in the south of UK which is dedicated to fisherman, lifeboat crew, that lost their lives, etc, where the roof looks like a huge boat hull upside down, and if you dream a little you can almost see the church roof turned over and floating and crashing through the surf with many men pulling on the oars, wearing mackintoshes and risking their lives to save others, the roof was I think to me an inspiration of design that turned my mind to many different designs, but all with the sole purpose to give who ever it may be a pleasant unforgetable shock and the a wow reaction , be it a small camping pod, to an economy low income house, passive structure, or a 4m x 9.6m camping pod, all my structures must offer the feeling of a safe haven, peace strength, longevity and above all else quality.

So, when I see other companies copying something I designed, and actually making it worse, its not upsetting, or flattering, it disgusts me, as I know their only goal is money. Safety of design is priority number one, and that does not mean just escape entrances, in case of a fire, but also in structure, the structure must have strength, and a huge amount of it. As this means longevity.

THE FIRST EVER CAMPING POD DESIGN, AS YOU CAN SEE THIS WAS NOT DESIGNED BY IAN BONE……

Even after Newfoundland pods were designed by Ian Bone in 2004, they took a while to catch on. !!!

Ian, did not design the camping pod or the shape, zero………..
https://www.langstonemanor.co.uk/newfoundland-pods-the-story/

When I first started manufacturing camping pods, I decided to put the entrance on the side, not the front as Ian Bones first pods, which his design was an exact copy of the Indian Toda Hut, so to Ian, please, please stop telling people you designed the pod, you did not, …the Toda people did.

Sorry, i ramble, ok getting back to why i put the side entrance on the pod, and how Keith and others copied my designs, one even put a square house door on it, ( and seriously these are on par with arch leisure with zero strength and zero thought and zero anything, just made for making them money ) talk about zero balance, so getting back to my blog …….so we added the side door as it made sense, firstly fire, getting out of a pod and only having an entrance door at the front, and a small window at the back seemed to me madness, and the eco part was also missing as small door, small window, where does all that free natural beautiful light come in? Its doesn’t, so we decided to make our on pods, and we design righted them, the style and the way we believed they should be made. But also and you must not forget this, we made them super strong, and i mean super strong. Our pods are almost indestructable, winds, rain, hail, what ever mother nature throws at them, they will stand up to it.


None will show this kind of photo because none of the pods out there could take this kind of abuse! only ours which is why the Swiss/ Iceland, Norway, Italians  businesses will never except the crap made in the UK because they are not designed to take harsh weathers and snow loads. And if you have a business and you want pods, come to the people that understand manufacturing, not some guy who sits at home, knows nothing about timber, manufacturing or even what a KN value is! Our Pods are designed to earn you a revenue year after year after year!!!

I then took on dealers, and then stuck to one dealer, Arch Leisure, Keith, who I thought was a stand up guy, at the beginning he was cool, then the Holidays each and every month, and then long, long holiday trips, and customers waiting etc, kind of upset me a little bit, but I am a loyal guy and I carried on with him, complaining but none the less carried on.

But in that time, he was scheming, and asked me to send him a pod without our tiles, or insulation and wiring etc, so he could copy how we manufactured the skeleton of the pod, and to his horror, I am laughing now because you can see he failed so miserably its almost funny, because to make our pods you need to have just one part of the mixture, and that is something him and his boys in a shed don’t have, experience, knowledge, or skilled carpenter craftsmans.

So when they saw our glulam beams, and how we made our structure solid, and how complicated it is, they gave up, before they begun. Stupid old bastard, destroyed a 8 year relationship because of greed. I hate greedy people, business is not about how much money you make, business is about how to make your customer happy, and for your customer to really love your product. and for the customer to return each and every year for more.

Our amazing Kitchen, it’s like sitting in the eaves of a church roof!!

What he has done now is cut down the build quality, incredible internal strength and design, just to earn more money. This is simply madness, dangerous and so I sacked him and asked him politely to take down all my pods, so no one would ever think for one moment that my designs, and my company were behind his Frankenstein creations. As his Pods may look OK, but in reality, they are in my mind CRAP!

This is not a camping pod, it’s already being called podbin with no though apart to make money its awful. And were is the strenght.

 I have added his attempt at a kitchen and mine, and for you the public to decide which one is with strength and style and what looks like a cheap nasty caravan.And what looks like it was designed to offer you a unique exsperience.

2 BEDROOM LUXURY POD, £33,500+ REDUCED VAT ( WHAT A F——– RIP OFF)

The cabin and timber frame market is sick, not just with greed but with the regulations and the Old Boys Club adding this and that to the rules every now and then, just to make you pay more, and pay and pay and pay. It’s always about money.

I hate to say this, but in the UK you just don’t have any decent timber left, and what you have you should not cut, as there is hardly any left, and most of it is oak, and that was planted by the Victorians, since then, Gordon Brown, Tony Blaire and the rest, planting Trees sadly have been forgotten, war and selling off our gold were only on these mens minds!

England is a mess where forests are concerned, we have built too many high rise blocks, tarmacked too much earth, and cut down too many forests to build council estates and now all you have left is roads, 67 million people and not much else. Scotland is different, as is Wales, but England, its destroyed! Fields and Fields of food produce , fertilizer everywhere, and zero woods, polluted streams, and disappearing wild life. What an amazing picture, so thank God that Russia, Sweden, Finland, Lithuinia, Belarus, and other countries see the value of timber, forests and wild life. Whos the stupid ones????? Who really is behind the times?? And I am a Britt!

My name is a Kevin Langham and I am the inovator, designer, and first manufacturer, of the side entrance quality luxury camping pod ( ever) and i have sold more than everyone puttogether x 10, the first video we released was in 2010, check this video, it has had nearly 500.000 views……… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9vFACBRNf0…………. Yeah its hard to dispute the truth when You Tube so nicely keeps the records.

I have invented, designed, manufacturer some of the most outstanding camping pods, large and small living cabins, and garden log cabins in existence.

The UK gardens have actually been changed by me, and me alone, I have beeen selling cabins, the first one we sold was nearly 21 years ago, and the people who have taken the credit, be a Dragons Den ” look at me and what we sell” , or a large company who saw 14 years ago that mass manufacturing log cabins was a way of making a lot of money, and then they dumped 200.000 poorly manufactured log cabins into the UK gardens quickly, these companies have taken the lime light, and poor old Kevin plods along still and designs, manufacture and sell’s to different companies, and in turn those companies rename my products, or completely copy it, like Arch Leisure and my side entrance pods, ( my backs up today) and then sell their wares, and use my quality and photos of my pods to sell their crap under the guise of a LV design.

Never purchase anything from Arch Leisure, you just don’t know what it’s made by, and trust me when I say this, he makes at least 50% on anything he sells you! So if its 10.000, you spend 15.000, from me it would be 7000.And my quality is far, far, far superior, as we are house manufacturers, not some guy in a shed, knocking out a few pods a month. And Keith i am almost sure their will be no more 4/5 times a year to Dubi to purchase handbags and other ,luxury wares, you will have to start earning your money honestly and legally.

Be careful whom you purchase from. You will be ripped off. That’s a fact.

If you notice, this company have our designs and photos of our pods all over their website, which we have asked them nicely to take down, this is a way they will con you. and if they were to take down our camping pods their website would be empty. No content, just a few nasty cheap looking pods and toilets.

Your then shown an interior of a pod a long one, all in white, so now ask yourself a question, where is the strength in that wall? Now ours on the left of the page have glulam beams running through out, as the roof needs support, remember that KN values are essential in the UK because of new snow loads which the government directed all manufacturers to use, but as you can see on the right, there are no internal glulam supports, it’s called a luxury pod, it’s a death trap, and a dark one at that. And at £33,500+ REDUCED VAT, a rip off.

Below our Pods, and our Quality

Below my design of an interiour, very church like, very diiferent, very thoughtful, no drama, just peace of desgin and the flowing of powerful strong beams and beauty.

Now a bad, awful, weak, undermade, cheap copy, CRAP!

Designed only to make profit, based on caravan rubbish, BS3632 crap!

Cold, dark, weak, dead, empty and completely and utterly lifeless.

Where is the strenght? Where? Sorry did i miss something.

Super size Luxury Glamping Pods for sale An archleisure copy,…. (crap)

So my rant of the day is done, fed up with the cowboys thinking they can steal and get away with it, Keith, you stole another’s design for profit, i will garenttee that 99% of the descent farmers, and camp site owners will not want a rip off, a copy, and a bad one at that, and a double priced one to boot. Logcabins.lv, enquiries@logcabins.lv, come to the company that understands how to build.+370 6889 3563 , u can get us on whatsapp. Talk for free and get to speak to the professional Sheaprds , not the sheep!

Archleisure luxury ( glamping pod )

OK lets start dissecting this pod sold by Archleisure and really look at what its manufactured from.Actually it does not say much, just blar this and Blar that, and of course they use TLX silver, which LV were the first to offer, and still do, actually we now offer, Gold, and silver, depending on the customers wishes and needs. But lets study this photo, and by the way if you happen to go to https://www.archleisure.co.uk/camping-pods-for-sale.html the marjority of the pods he is showing on his website are LV’s , he just went to a cheaper , shed manufacturer to copy our designs after 8 years of doing business, so he could make them cheaper and as you can see, not as well built. If you look at the timber along the side of this pod ( picture below) you will notice one thing very quickly, there are no stress grooves cut into the back of any of the timber, which means eventually it will twist, and that’s bad. Actually its suicide for that particular building. Next i do not see any grading marks of C24 anywhere on any of his production photos, and actually i do not see him say his windows and Trada certified, or that his timber is FSC, or what size glulams he uses. And as there is only one decent glulam mill in the UK, i have a feeling his are not made with certified glulam.

If you want to purchase a quality Camping Pod, and Archleisure this is not the company to purchase from!

I added a page view, just so my old friend Keith could not actually deny that he was selling our designs and decided to rip them off and make a cheap copy of them, but its easy as a customer to find out if this is true just by going to ,waybackwhen, and there all websites copies are held.

Anyway getting back to this pod copying company, which is rather funny actually, as he was so upset when someone stole his arch design, and how everyone was a crook, but when you have very greedy mouths to feed decent Common sense and Chivalry go out the window and greed takes it place.

And the public are fooled into thinking they are buying a quality pod, when in fact they are not, they are buying a copy of a quality Pod! logcabinslv is the best pod maker in the UK and europe thats a fact. everything else on the market is a copy and mostly is crap! If its not manufactured by skilled carpenters, then what your purchasing is not going to last. And no one in the UK can ever get our Northern Siberian Larch Cladding, EVER!!! No matter what they say, they can’t. I have been in the timber business 28 years, and the UK never gets our quality of timber.

So Keith, Mr Archleisure man, who’s website is made up of 90% of my products and you sell inferior to the customers under the guise that they are LV, now the public know.

We do not sell our pods or any items to www.archleisure.co.uk. If you want a pod, and want a company that will actually travel to site, check on how things are coming along, from the first to last day, and will service your pods and help you, and not just earn money by sitting at a desk and expecting everyone else to do the tidying up, then please give us a call or send an email.

logcabinslv.co.uk, the company behind the best pods in the industry, we designed them, the rest just copy!

A pod should be manufactured like this…. I am forgetting……….

PEOPLE WHO COPY DON’T CARE ABOUT QUALITY, JUST YOUR CASH!

Camping Pods are only good if they come from LV Log Cabins....

If timber was so amazing for roofing…………… why then are there no houses with wooden roofs? Easy answer, timber is not waterproof, cracks and splits after a very short time, needs to be treated regularly and this is Cedar Clad, which has a lower amount of tanis than larch,and i still would not use larch ever as a roofing material, its solely for claddings. It’s a pity the people who come up with these ideas actually understood timber…..

Thank you for reading…. Do not make a mistake a buy a copy! Buy a good solid camping pod from the guys that started this revolution, the freedom for campsites, don’t feed the guys who only think about cash….. And trust me, they never come when there’s a problem and blame you for everything when it goes badly wrong.
