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.

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.

The UK has about 25.000.000 homes, 80% are of poor design, lack quality insulation, inferior windows and doors, and cost way over the odds

Log Cabins LV can offer quality, design and price, all of which beat the competition easily!

A++ Energy Efficient Homes are not expensive, but no doubt, every builder and his dog will now be hammering away, offering this kind of build type, and prices at the very start will be extortionate. Honesty is in price!!!

Firstly, the panels should come delivered 99% fully made to site, there should be no frame building on site. The stud work in the panel should not be open to the elements Ever!!!!

A passive house, an (A++ Energy Efficient home) should at all times be manufactured in a controlled environment, we have a heated undercover work shop facility where we are able to fully build a 3 storey house, our in house CNC Window and door line offers quality CE approved Windows and Doors every time.

All our timber is C24 graded, KD FSC.

Eco Housing not Eco Housing!

 

energy efficient housing

eco housing

Passive Housing, or Energy Efficient Housing are now all the rage, and Eco Villages will be popping up all over the place.

To gain the publics trust, there needs to be stringent guidelines on planning, but more importantly the understanding of what truly is an eco house.

Log Cabins LV has been in the timber building industry for more years than we care to remember, we manufacture and erect timber frame buildings mainly in Norway, where drastic freezing winters are a norm, we understand about energy efficiency, what heating systems work in a passive structure, and what don’t!

We also understand that something’s work, and others do not.

Our years of experience, and our understanding of timber frame technology, plus our very highly skilled architects, who are completely versed in passive, energy efficient housing, would not make the silly mistakes that are listed here in this daily mail article.

Sadly, it is very easy to believe in Kevin Mc Cloud as he is seen as an authority on such matters as passive and energy efficient housing, but I would like to point out that he is based in the UK, where timber frame technology is seriously behind the times, brick and block is seen as a true investment, but to be passive, eco, block is not the build type!

 

Yet, using or even offering gas in a newly built energy efficient house, is somewhat (crazy), and lazy!

 

An eco house should be almost air tight, if not airtight, the amount of moisture omitted from the house hold use, should be dealt with by the air recuperation system, this would stop damp, but knowing UK house builders, these pathetic eco houses are no doubt damp from the very core of the stud work!

Kevin Mc Cloud is not an Architect; he does not have any qualifications on Passive Housing, or Eco Builds.

He is very much using his MBE and his presence on the UK TV to win support and gain financially on building projects. HAB housing!!!

He is not challenging anyone; he is just earning himself a large bank account!

Any man that makes a TV program, where he cuts an old beautiful oak and makes a shed out of it, especially an Oak Tree! Well!!!! Shame on you Mc Cloud.

 

I challenge Kevin McCloud to search for an industry that needs a shake up and do a program on offering solutions to that industry that truly benefits the population, and not his own pocket! If you need help Kevin….I know one!!!!
