Whats been Happening!!!

This is a Priest, ( a real one) who bought our Amazing Aurora twinskin 44mm x 44mm, and put it up assembled this himself. And trust me he is so super excited, He told me to say, that his cabin is the best of the best in the UK!! And with that smile, he means it!

( if i have any spelling mistakes sorry, nad just get use to it, no noe is perfcet)

Its really nice to get from customers, Priest, or no Priest, a fantastic review and just praises from beginning to end, he did say a few of his neighbours had seen him assemble his and asked for help, ( Gods work is never done) i am laughing there, sorry could not help myself, and he said that the difference in logs, Window and Door quality from what we offer to the rest on the market is a huge difference. He said that most people sadly do not understand how bad most cabin windows and doors are, and the difference it makes, especially for keeping in the warm, and overall quality. Good quality means longevity, cheap means throw away!

Oh, then there is this amazing Pods we just did for a fantastic couple in the UK, as you can see its unlike any Pod, there are 3 of them, ever built, and the quality of this one and the others out shines any pods on the market.

Why are ours the best, simple , strength, and you can not mistake this for a disgusting caravan, that is sadly just a blight on the landscape, too many companies are copying our pods, but copies , always end up breaking quickly, we call it the PodBIn syndrome.

This pod is on a dead flat correct sized base, and put together by a professional man.

There are many copies of this, but if they do not come from Kevin Langham then sadly their pants. And yes the cladding is larch and always will be, and yes triple glazed, and yes massively insulated. Most can not get pine, never mind larch. Most can not get glulam, ours are full of it. Yes, totally 100% Beautiful,, Difficult to manufacturer as all done by hand.

OK this is what I was writing at the beginning, but decided to add the last first and first last, sorry, so…

Yo, Yo, welcome to todays Blog, sorry people, fans, readers, and haters, I have decided to take a month off and just wait till I had some amazing photos, stories and what ever else I decided was apt for this blog, got a lot of other ones, but as this is my favourite, and reaches about 25.000 a week, I must , gladly ,give it attention as well! OK if anyone knows me, I have had partners come and go, most ran. I am awful to work for, i work late hours and always want only the best, especially in the covid time, I was like, where are my workers, partners, helpers, learners, my phone would ring and their squeaky voices would almost say under their mummies bed hiding. that they have gone to the village. So gone… Next..

Then they would open their own company and if anyone has seen House on Netflix, then these are the kind of people i had around me, So I was shouting a lot, or going mad. One girl we had working for us, thankfully left 18 months ago, caused us so many problems, and did so many mistakes, I understand some of the bad reviews we got at that time, but the Virus caused problems for everyone, and those that had no nerve, balls, or just guts to ride out this virus, lost their way. You see the driving force of any company normally is the team, or the Boss, the boss pushes and teaches the team how to behave, how to look at certain problems, not be greedy, and never run after the money, just the work, also how to design and how to move forward, and sadly with out the boss, they normally try and steal ideas, and move forward. And always the customer ends up paying the price.

It took me so long to describe a residential log cabin that was a type of residential log cabin, to use the word type, would need a British educated Brain to understand that, not Lithuanian, “Type” but i see on some half finished awful website the same name type to describe the same products, obviously a complete and utter, moronic, no brains, lets copy another website text, why because i am dull , and that makes me laugh, as it proves that there is no fresh brain meat, or ideas left in this industry, its full of the same. I stopped designing because i though 7000 was enough, the tap tap tapping of my designers mouse and key board ever day, ringing in my ears, and even though I loved what we were creating together, I just saw, company after company copy my work, and resell the design with less enthusiastic and also materials, so the quality was and is on these certain buildings awful, like the Pods, Clock Houses, TwinSkins and so many ideas we, I had that were copied, and trashed. Its upsetting. But what I can say is, like most things this market has had its day, thats the cabin market, and I am so looking forward to whats coming next! Highly insulated, Finished, Factory Cabins

OK back to buildings, my passion, our passion, our want to bring to market the best of the best and always something different.

So here is a building I designed 15 years ago……… imagine what else I have stored away! Sadly most architects structural engineers and dreamers are so far behind.

The only way I design houses for people , is if I know that these people are cool…….Smug was yesterday, nice is today, dreams come tomorrow! …by KL..

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………

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….

Today, let’s talk about the DF range.

Our DF Log Cabins Range , why is it so very special, Arrr…. there are hundreds of reasons let’s look at one.

The Price and Quality out beats every other cabin on the market to date.

Now I dare you to visit any website in the UK and put this ordinary DF Log Cabin of ours up against anyone else’s.

Now before we begin, I am not going to tell you what certain size timbers are used in our cabins our structural timbers, as I want you to do your homework and ask other companies, ask them also about how their windows and doors are made, also the thickness of the windows and doors, what material they use for their window and doors, and glass thickness, is it up to what standard etc. I am fed up with pushing this industry up the hill with new ideas and designs, we stopped designing last year as we have over 7000+ designs, most of which have been copied.

So back to what you ask the company you think is offering you a bargain, what thickness are their roof purlins as this shows the kind of KN value you can expect from your roof. They will not have this information at hand to tell you, and will tell you to call back, or talk you around this, they will then think your a difficult customer because you’re asking all the right questions, which to them are the wrong questions, and when and if you have further conversations with them, most of it is lies.


We answer so many peoples questions, about how to look after a cabins, how to make bases, what to look for etc, but we have decided from the beginning of next week we will give just the basics. We are now picking our customers, as there are so many customers asking for our Range of High End Cabins.

Always Pay with a Credit Card

This industry is full of cowboys and thieves, and to be honest, 99.9% sell crap against what we manufacturer, and our prices are fair and honest. Actually our prices for the quality of the log cabin we offer and timber frame buildings are actually below the market value,

So please remember this, you pick a log cabin from any website,, and it looks amazing, and the price is low, low means its cheaply made, nothing else, it’s not a bargain, it’s not a steal, it’s not a fantastic day for you to celebrate, as you are just about to be conned into buying a package of crap, you look at what you have bought and put it up against ours and you think amazing, the same..but cheaper.. a cabin such as ours in look, but not in any other way the same as ours, their timbers will be thinner, their timber will be fast grown baltic pine, cheap and rots very quickly, and will need a lot of looking after , the windows and doors are rubbish, furnished with Chinese handles, locks, keys and hinges and we all know rust, and breakages will happen sooner rather than later with these, purlins are 50% smaller in cut, strength, durability, and the cabin will be just a cheaply manufactured charlatan copy , a mass produced shed, as these can not be called cabins.

Always pay with a credit card

These Log Cabin doors took us 8 months to design and manufacture, so they would last a minimum of 10 years. These are the best doors in the industry.

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!!!!

Sauna…….

Who has the best range of Saunas in the UK for amazing prices considering no one has any timber, ( US) and who can deliver amazing Saunas on a 8 week promise, Us.

A Sauna is the best thing to relax in after a days graft. So many people sit in their baths and wallow in their dirty water for an hour or so and then dry themselves off with a dirty towel and think ( I am clean) your not, you are actually dirtier as the pours of your skin opened and the dirt went slightly deeper.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but bathtubs are really, really dirty. One study found that staph germs, which can cause dangerous staph infections, are present in almost 30 percent of bathtubs. Another study says bathtubs are 100 times more germ-filled than garbage cans.

But…….

Facilities offering sauna bathing often claim health benefits that include detoxification, increased metabolism, weight loss, increased blood circulation, pain reduction, anti-aging, skin rejuvenation, improved cardiovascular function, improved immune function, improved sleep, stress management, and relaxation.

So please please have a look at our range of keeping young cabins……..

When manufacturing a Clock House Log Cabin, there are many things to take into account.

The first thought when manufacturing a Log Cabin is that it is built safely, and that it protects the environment. Its windows and doors are the best they can be, and that its water tight, and manufactured to be strong.

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.
