Category Archives: 44mm log cabins

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..

Time to watch out for the Bandits.

Yesterday I was going through the web, just looking at what everyone else was doing, and what I saw was madness. Now, I know some of you understand whats what where cabins are concerned, but you all need to know more than you actually do if your going to spend £6000 pounds on a building that is manufactured with 34mm.
So what did I find, I found once again Lithuanian companies, who have actually no regulations attached to their products, offer the British public a cabin that is not fit for purpose completely off the bat. Now you might ask why do I get bothered about this, the answer to that is, I don’t, because we have our own dedicated customers, and sellers, who know what is what, we also have taught them over many years what is allowed to manufactured with what and what is not allowed.

NOW…… Mr Newark who lives in Bexhill Road East Sussex, calls me up, and tell me that he has seen a huge cabin the price is excellent and the quality by the pictures are amazing, and can we match this cabin, so I ask him to show me what cabin, this happens on a daily basis, which honestly I get fed up with, but I listen carefully and follow his direction to the page, then I see this….

He then tells me this is exactly what he wants, he says its residential, and perfect for him and the family to chill out in on their land, but he just wants to make sure that he is getting the best of the best, and what do I think.

So I look through the specification, and what Hits me first is 34mm walls.

Then I see the price, and laugh, I laugh so hard and so long Mr Newark is asking me why I am laughing, I think he thinks I have lost the plot, I then say to him, do you see a gallery anywhere? do you see how their windows and doors look, actually are you aware of how thick a 34mm log is? I asked him to get a tape measure, and pull it out to 3.4 centimetres, I then said thats what keeps the cold out, moisture out, battles mother nature in all her glory and they want from you 34.166…. Really. Seriously

So if you add the pitch of the roof, your talking about ( around) 114 square meters of heavy roof, being held up with something as thick as a 3.4 centimetres. then you add covering and and.

Mr Newark, asked me if I thought it was I good buy, I asked him, seriously we he drive a car manufactured from cardboard? He went quiet, and I said save more, buy better, and 3.4 centimetres of timber to hold up this massive roof and support this size building for that price is a joke and a crime!

It’s because of these blogs we are lied about on trust pilot, but ask me if I care, NO!
If you were to ever Believe trust Pilot, you would be a fool.

Thanks for reading and learning….

Log Cabins- Timber Frame – Modular Office-House

Hi all another busy week, and now that everyone wants to speak to us about our new and amazing, I must say Modular House-Office highly insulated galvanised buildings, which are fully insulated fitted out with tilt and turn double glazed aluminium windows and doors, and and and and, we are rushed off our feet with quotes, we have superb buildings at incredible pricing and to the trade, well its a great time to talk to us. We have looked at this space, and the most important part of it, is the quality of the insulation, the certification behind it, the thickness of the modular framing and the quality of build, then of course the pricing. If all these elements come together, well its happy days for the customer, us and any new companies that wish to join us on this new journey.

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.

Quality Doors
Quality log cabins Doors

Always pay with a credit card

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.

log cabins

Looking for a Log Cabin

Today I decided to write this to help those that want to listen, and believe in the one voice in the industry that really does tell the truth, regardless of sale or no sale.
Many of you are going to be fooled by prices, and this will attract you more than the actual cabin, which is what you are looking for in the first place.
There is no such thing as a cheap log cabin, what there is now is a web full up with cabins that have had their guts cut completely out of them.
So where our roof purlins are 45mm x 225mm, others companies will use 45 mm x 110mm, At the beginning it’s not going to cause too much of a problem, but after a year and your roof will begins to sag and they have gone bankrupt, and left you with false promises of 10 year guarantees, etc, your going to feel sick.

( Put it into a short version, they are selling you the look and not the strength , quality or value )

In 2001, we started selling log cabins into the UK, ( the first) we had to convince the public they were better than cheap, sheds, which they are and always will be, sheds are sadly a waste of money and timber, remember the material most sheds are manufactured from is crap, but if that material was cut a bit thicker, you could manufacture a better building, which would cost only slightly more but last 10 years 15 years longer if treated correctly. Reading terms and conditions is always sensible when sealing with a company whose prices are cheaper than everyone else, as normally you pay and then that’s that! Anyway getting back to 2007/2008 many of the big shed companies started buying from us, cabins, and introducing them to their customer base, we had a happy 3 years, and then every man and his dog started manufacturing cabins and copying most of the designs I had personally done, including the twinskin system and the clock house, but no one was or is as good as us, they are mostly just in it for the money, and when a recession turns up, they go broke, and with that I am bankrupt message goes your deposit, which is why I always say, PAY WITH A CARD!

Sadly the Irish , both sides of the border are deaf to this message, I have no clue why as AIB, and British Banks do not care , sadly they are not in touch with their customer base, just what you owe, and what they lend, if you have money with either they charge you to look after it, it’s disgusting.
Politics is never to be written, but I believe in honesty and justice, also I believe that if a man comes to your house, and take a deposit, and then goes bankrupt, his house, car, land whatever, should be grabbed by the government and sold to reimburse those that were stolen from.

Now in the UK that’s never going to happen, as half of the Millionaires-Billionaires, would be poor men, and the people would be heard, the laws were set to make those of power , more powerful, and the working man to know his place.
And the tradesman who wants to climb up onto the cart of Millionaires must there for play the same game, which is sadly go bankrupt and keep your deposits. Which is what they do. And what happens to them, Zero.

I was watching the news and I saw that the Cargo, Boat Line, P&O ferries sacked 800 staff illegally, and brought in cheap foreign workers, so why don’t we sake P&O ferries from the UK and bring in another boat line that does not break the law, P&O really were not punished. As they put peoples lives at risk by their actions by recruiting a staff of untrained crew, who have no legal right to be in the UK or our waters. Yet the government is weak and sad and just forgets about the British dignity.
So where is this leading, I am highlighting how it is now, how the UK looks at bankruptcy and it’s not the same as it was say 20 years ago. This has a lot to do with our laws, and how WOKE our parliament has become. We have stopped being men, and now we are only a slight shadow of what wer were and our grandfathers were. When there was a wrong we marched on Parliament, Remember the iraq war, WMD’s tony blair and his crew, who are all still sat in parliament, nothing changes regarding breaking the law on bankruptcy because they are all at it themselves.

Thats why I say, PAY BY CARD, then the thieving scoundrels, will be held to account, because the banks hate to lose and will take the merchant holder to court, and they will put them in prison, and they will put the Police on them, so PAY BY CARD.

I know I go on and on,but soon this world has changed, and man’s manners have got lost, greed and dishonesty live at every corner of most of the mouths of most traders in this market, and crap that is sold is just unworthy of the payment you make.

Ready, this is written on a web site, And it’s all crap!

  1.  Special wall logs with double tongue for improved steadiness * all wall logs have double tongue and groove,
  2. Floor boards 21 mm, floor joists 60/80 mm and roof beams with dimensions at least 80/160 mm. Floorboards minimum 28mm and Roof purlins always 45 mm x 220mm, floor joists are normally a bespoke size, depending on insulation wanted by customer. Our customer base is always bespoking.
  3. Windows from glued timber (68 mm system), with double glass and rubber seals (Our Standard)
  4. Tilt/turn hinges from a German manufacturer (Our Standard)
  5. Double doors from laminated timber (cladded from both sides) (Our Standard)
  6. NEW Tirolean joint (only 90 degrees corners are possible in this system) This type of log cut is not strong, it needs a metal rod of quite a large diameter and tightening monthly. Which means you need metal throughout the whole cabin through the walls, which is very costly.
    • We tried this with glulam Larch timber, which is far stiffer and 100X stronger than this timber shown, and it was a massive, costly mistake. It has zero in the way of strength. Plus if you notice the t&G is cut cheaply. Now you might ask yourself why i put this down,

There is a reason for this, its because this company wants you to waste your hard earned money on a New Product, it’s not new, the russians were making there barns in this style 100’s of years ago, then they went to the new way, why because Dovetail joints leak, they have actually no core strength. no I say this for buildings, and if you rod, and dowel and screw the logs together and you use this joint, fine, but the companies that sell this will not go to this length and that why its a con of a joint.

Whats do I know about Joint, look below, and then ask me again.


We can manufacture any kind of joint in the world, the machine we have is so sophisticated that it can make a cup from a 400mm x 400mm piece of Siberian Larch Glulam, or all the purlins for Lidl. Whichever is ordered. As you can see we manufacture lengths of timber possibly none of you could imaging could exist, check out these glulam lengths below…

Yep longggggg…

Anyway I have completely forgotten what I was talking about, trust, credit cards, going bust, running off with your credit cards, distrusting people who write rubbish.

I have people on a daily basis thank me for this blog as it puts the true light into the business, so my lasting thoughts to you from me, on this Sunday night are these, 99.9% of all the companies have been bust at least once, they all cut down the safety features of their cabins, in other words, same cabins in looks only half of the timber is used to manufacturing it now. Windows and doors, may look like my new ones, but none of them are, and as the founding father of this log cabin industry in the UK an Ireland I would say very confidently that no one has given more thought of designs, higher standards of build quality, and has kept prices as low as we have and 99% of all companies selling cabins in the UK are not worth even half of what they’re advertised for. When we first started manufacturing here in the Baltics it took us about four years to actually get everyone to understand the level we needed for the UK market and still we have to push each and every day to keep that level high. Otherwise the market from outside would be a mess there are companies that manufacture log Cabins and Timber Frame buildings that are absolutely rubbish and not even worth looking at but how do you tell ( Mr Customer) when every 3D image or 3-D video looks the same as everyone else’s, So you run to the show site where the best of the best cabins they have ever made are on display. It is never a good idea to go to a show site and get your head filled up with their lies, its always best to speak to one of their customers, and ask them how it all went, or maybe 5 customers or 10, this way you will have a honest review on who and what they pretend to be.

We have been here from the beginning, and honestly speaking 99% of this industry is full of conmen!

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

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

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

This is Russian, Quality Timber.

Russian Quality Winter Cut Timber.

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

As you can see the difference immediately.

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

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

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

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

Doors and Windows our design, now everyone is copying.

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

Log Cabins and the inside.

Most companies never show the insides of their cabins, and there is a really good reason for this, they look even worse inside as they do out, yeah, once again I jump on the other companies and call them all crap etc, but sadly being the Granddad of this industry, and seemingly being the only one who actually wants to change things, make cabins better and better, not worse, always upping the quality and keeping prices the same, selling direct, through our LTD UK company and pushing the customer to pay with a credit card , for their own protection, is quite a move forward, I am seriously happy with what we have accomplished over this last year, we got rid of the middle man, we don’t need them, they always said the shed companies that we needed them, customers will not buy direct, they are worried, what a load of bollocks, customers love saving 1000’s and getting more and a better cabin, plus excellent customer service. Most shed, companies are just rip off merchants. They resell our hard work, earn more than us, and scream for low prices. They are the scum of this industry completely!

We have our own building teams in the UK that are cheaper than shed companies and better, we have direct line of sales to you, and best part is, we know what your going to get, when its leaving and when it will get there.

Next we use Russian Scotts Pine, Our timber looks Russian, and trust me when I say the grain is as tight as your wallet! North London Humour!

Check Out the quality of this building inside, its built by the best, us, hand picked timber, all cut on a new CNC Multisize Log Cabin Line.

Our Doors and windows as you can see have new for 2021-2022 multi locking system plus each door has 3 German hinges and as you can see quality here is 101%.

Why do people in general come to us, simple, they have money to spend, want the best, understand that we know whats good and bad, want to buy from a Brit, that started this whole industry, want to buy from someone that will tell them the truth, more importantly you are going to feel safe with your choice, forget Resellers, they are here today and sadly your money and them gone tomorrow, we are the choice, you do not ask someone to go to the bank for you, you go yourself, so if you want to spend 1000’s then give it to the girls and guys that are here today, and will not be gone tomorrow.. We can give you hundreds of references, we are also on our banks blog as being one of the best manufacturers to sell to the public by credit card last year, but most people who buy from us, have read my blog, and these people know that I hate liars, and con men, I just want to give you the best of the best as quickly as possible and I am told I do this well! And everyone I work with always come back, especially in the Holiday, Chalet, Pod, Lodge industry.

Finding the Log Cabin that you can afford.

So many things to think of and here is a list for you to think over.

Firstly you are not looking for a cheap crap mass produced log cabin. You’re not, your bank account thinks you should and your telling yourself that a 34mm and a 70mm is the same it’s not, but you don’t, as wasting money is wasting money, so stay away from Resellers 34mm log cabins and crap they are no better than an up market shed, quickly manufactured windows and doors, they fall apart almost immediately.

Our Windows and doors are not just a amazing they are the best, we have spent no
expense on producing them, and making sure everyone in the industry is way way behind us in quality level.

Lots and Lots of companies have already tried to already copy our door design , hinges, quality handles and lots, but copying them is one thing, but getting the quality means you must pay for it, and we have.paid for ours heavily, our doors are not allowed to be put into the cabin until they are completely and utterly stained and waterproofed, they they can be fitted, the reason for this is that they are manufactured from joinery timber, and their moisture content is very low and they will expand and not fit if they are not treated until exposed to the weather.

This is not a cheap cabin, no no means but it will stand its ground for more than 20 years…. FACT!


You are not looking for a concrete foundation that will crack and be damp.
You are not looking for a company that shows you a pretty picture and delivers you a mess. missing bits, broken parts etc, and the sales man , woman , tells you they are the best of the best and you be as snug as a bug all year round, and the walls are 44mm single skin.
You are not looking for a company who cuts its timber from Baltic Spruce or Pine, its quick grown and rubbish, Imedeska and a few other manufacturers, sell baltic pine, they basically bid in the local market for local logs, cut it, dry it, in old uncertified kilns, and then sell it on with mass profit, it splits, it looks nice a white, sandy coloured, but honestly the timber is crap.and it will rot in 7 years with or with out stain, rot protection, the timber is too new to hold any kind of self oil, and then you will remember back to reading this blog and remember when i said buying cheap is foolish.

Please check out this link there are 100’s of different cabins to choose from.

Thank you for reading this if you are looking for a decent cabins please give us a call.

0208 133 5164 please ask for sales!

IF YOU CAN PLEASE ALWAYS OFFER US A CREDIT CARD FOR PAYMENT.

If you want to see over pricing, I was shocked!

Shocked is not the word, this is disgusting, its all most as bad as price of sheds, decking, and other timber related goods in the UK, and the amount people are charging you , its a rip off. Sadly the south is hit the hardest, and then London and the areas around it.

I just want to show the difference in this brief blog.

When looking for a cabin, please think about the 44mm x 44mm log cabins on factory cabins, cheaper than the rest, we designed this system, and we are the leaders in this, plus our windows and doors are with out doubt the best then anyones.

Check out these cabins.

Now we will show you similar cabins of ours but please check out our pricing. Its mind blowing.

OK the first is bigger than that displayed by www. i love your money .com, And the price for out larger more unique, better designed, better actually in every way in 70mm is £5040 ex works, where our www. i love your money .com, £4581 more. Hello, is some one just a dumb stupid greeedy idiot or what, trading standards should be knocking tomorrow at your door. Virus does not mean we rip people off.

Then here comes the real , serious rip offs, Check out the two last cabins, and you will see they are both priced similar, one in 35mm, thats not a bad size if you want cheap and cheerful, and then there is 44mm which is my favourite, and it hardly splits and never twists if its put up quickly and treated, put on a good flat base and you add the gutters etc. Flat base, gutters, good body stain, decent roof covering and a good drain away and our cabins will last 20 + years, I personally have the first ever 44mm twin skin building ever made, and i can say hand on heart do a good job at the beginning and it could out live you, and i have designed the windows and doors to be super hardy!

Below is a building that is say £3000 cheaper than both, yet is bigger, better looking, it has my designed roof, and your friends will do a back flip when they go inside and have a look at your new chill out room. bar, pool room, or just office.

And if the mill cuts the corners from its timber logs it means they are twisted and it stops you seeing the twist. Now you know and you know what to look out for and not buy.

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.

What is factory cabins, and who is factory cabins.

“A NEW BEGINNING TO THIS INDUSTRY”

EX WORKS!!!!! IT SHOULD HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY!!!!!

Simple Factory Cabins is in essence www.logcabins.lv, www.logcabinslv.co.uk, ,www.logcabinssussex.co.uk but now we are more than a designer / manufacturer/ dealer, we are now a group of mills coming together, and offering on one site, our products without using the middle man.

“Just a quick note, if you all knew me, and understood my passion for this industry and how i like to make sure that your cabin, pod, house, what ever is not just the best , but it really is the best all of you would only buy from me, because i really do produce the best log cabins and timber buildings at the most sensible pricing for the quality in the World! Now i have had a long hard road and battle with my dealers over the years to not be greedy, and only a very small few listened to me, and these girls and guys i have kept and they do my bigger builds, and assembly etc, because I respect their family values, everyone who knows me knows i hate liars, crooks and thieves, the public must be treated like family, i always say this, then the dealer spoils everything by spending his profit before he has the cabin delivered, or even ordered, and then problems, and as the recession comes closer and closer i am looking at the market and i can see who is not to be trusted, if they say they can not deliver and please pick it up, it means they are getting rid of drivers, which means money is tight, and their overheads are too high, everyone who has my cabins, pods, timber frame, what ever, sauna barrels, hot tubs etc, and i really love my timber frame houses, as i love to design and i love to get phone calls with people screaming down the phone in delight with their new house, cabin, or pods and telling me how amazing they are, that makes my life worth living, yes money helps, but in life her-his family is the strength , not how much we have in our pocket which is why everyone is treated fairly and like family. and that’s why our quality is amazing, if you are looking for a high quality, low priced log cabin , camping pod, laminated cabin or a timber frame house, please speak to me” EX Works Pricing is the New Beginning, make a massive saving with a phone call”.

So how does it work, Simple, we, sell everything EX Works Lithuania. I was told off today for swearing, sorry Mr Customer, but the British have been ripped off so badly by their so called friendly neighborhood dealers for years, and the amounts you pay for your cabins now, are sadly grand theft in every way, and when you start comparing our low low, low, low prices that will eventually cover Factory Cabins from top to Bottom, our pricing will shock you. Many unscrupulous companies have stolen our DF range imagery and added them to their websites, do not be conned.. Please tell us who they are.

So why have we done this, well it’s simple, we the mills this time round will make sure that no customer loses his/her money when the recession does actually hit us in a few short months, which it will, ( be sure of that) if you look at how many companies in 2007 went bust, and then restarted and owed customers money, and are now under new trade names and trading now, you would be even more shocked, and they are sadly the leading brands, Even us the mills were owed 100.s of thousands, it was then after 2007 that we all stopped giving credit the UK dealers in full. There was no more factoring with banks etc. Sadly the UK dealers destroyed the trust of banks and mills alike.

How many of the companies in the UK went bust in 2007, it’s a long time ago, but to me it was like yesterday, and our dealers were ordering lots and lots of cabins, and then ” whoops” our dealers then said they could not pay their invoices,” surprise’ surprise” which is what always happens when you give credit or trust someone ,even with contracts in place etc, especially in this market, as its fickle and most UK companies have huge over heads, and go bust very very quickly when the customers stop coming in, and the next thing you know, your told sorry, we have gone bust and speak to the bank, the bank say sorry and you lose your money.

Sadly in the UK going bankrupt and restarting again is too easy, but you the customer, are left high and dry, and i saw this before in 2007, and i helped personally many customers get their money back and their cabins delivered.

Also the market slowed down to a crawl because the dealers were upping their prices to try and stay afloat, to pay their Garden Centre rent and staff, and eventually they went bust, and customers lost their deposits and cabins and dreams.

So why have we decided to go ex works, simple, we will not let our hard work be spoiled by greedy individuals who have lived the high life and think that you the customer would never buy, purchase a cabin ex works, they think you the customer will only buy from them, because you trust them, they are after all local, they know your area, and they are British and you trust them. Well! I am British and you can trust me, and i can honestly say the prices in the UK will come down, to my level, and quality and cost will be on par, i do not sell crap, unlike 90% of the companies out there. And if you want to buy a fucking quality cabin and save 1000’s of pounds, have it delivered to your door, assembled and given a guarantee that actually means something, then Factory Cabins .co.uk is the number one company to speak to.

We will week , by week start to bring more and more different designs to the site, timber frame, Laminated cabins, Pods and so much more. and all EX WORK LITHUANIA.

Remember we started this industry in 2001, first cabins came from us, website was www.sourcingtimber.com. I am the only Britt in Lithuania in this industry and there is a reason for this, its because i love this industry and i love the people i work with and have done for more than 20 years, i trust my fellow workers and designers and staff, and i think that its about time everyone got a fair crack at the EX WORKS PRICE, .

This is not going to make me popular, I know, but who gives a fuck, I DON’T…. And a man who does not swear, well, he must be very gentle, and we do not need gentle people, cutting trees, moulding logs and making cabins, we need men.

There may be a lot of people with our images with LV attached to them, please ask us, who is who, We do not supply anyone in the South East of England, no one! So no to Bexhill, Hastings, Eastbourne, or Kent, if you find a company that is based in these areas using our images, and product name be aware of fraud, if they need to steal from us, they will steal from you!

Family Log Cabin Accommodation.

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

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

Quality log cabins and timber buildings ar low low prices. Please contact us if you want to find out more.
Passive Timber Frame LV design Houses.

If you are looking for a quality passive timber frame solution we have it, as we have a full CNC line and also a full bespoke service that is able to offer not just quality log cabins for sale in the UK, but also timber frame buildings, that are much needed for the housing market at the moment at a fraction of the costs that are being banneded about by most manufacturers in the UK, 1000 pounds per sq meter for a A++ house is F—-ing disgusting and stupidly overpriced .. actually Greedy. Like most UK companies that import from abroad, who actually know nothing about the product, just sell it on and hope for the best, we at LV know our product, and lets not forget, the timber that the UK companies use to be able to purchase now can’t, which means home grown, quick gown timber will be used in timber frames in the UK, LV use only graded Russian, tight Grain C24 , which means quality from the inside out, do not forget LV manufacture it, and design it, and truly believe in it. If your looking for quality, then speak to us…

Log Cabins LV.co.uk 2020

Today we are going to talk about the logcabins and timber buildings that we designed and helped the market to improve week after week and month after month and now years on how our designs have shaped the cabin market to what it is, and now why we are changing the way we do things because of the mess which has formed in the UK because of utter greed.

The Cabin above is called the Clock House Aurora, it is an offshoot, the big brother, the sister of the first ever 5.5m x 4.0 m Clock House in 44mm, which i would like to add we designed. This Cabin was designed by me for one reason, and one reason only, so that the amount of sunlight that came into the clock house log cabin was immense.

Then we came up with Cabins with terraces, which at the time i thought was a novel idea, however, the planners got hold of this eventually and decreed that if the veranda was attached to the cabin it counted as part of the 30 sq m rule.

Of course we have customers that wanted to bespoke our designs, and this triple clock house was a big hit, sadly none of the customers liked showing us the end result, which is a pity as i would have loved Bob in Northern Ireland who was the first to design and buy this one, and then sold it to his customer to have sent some photos over, but dealers being as they are, keep finished projects to themselves.. Greedy Bunch! ( love em really)..

Then their comes our timber frame, Larch Clad, Glulam Beam constructions that come to either full build regulations or fully Passive.

These are without doubt the best money can buy and their pricing would shock you actually, as their quality of build, the workmanship that goes into these buildings is just amazing, we use only the very best C24 timber for construction, Northern Siberian Larch for cladding, Engineered glulam, for roofing, and the windows and doors are all CE , Trada certified. Quality of build is so important to me, and of course design. I have over 7000 different designs which is the most I believe in the business!

Let’s talk small houses, perfect for Airbnb ( Micro Houses) now this is a sore topic for me, as in America they came up with this and claimed to be the first to offer this kind of construction, which i am in disagreement with, as i designed these well before anyone decided to put them on a trailer and drag them around, which honestly unless they have core steel construction, will rattle and fall apart so quickly it’s not even funny. A timber building is supposed to go on a firm flat concrete bed, not on a trailer to bounce up and down the road. This little 2 bed building is in ever respect a quality little house, and a perfect Airbnb

More tomorrow..

Kate Log Cabin – 3.5 m x 5.6 m

Kate Log Cabin – 3.5 m x 5.6 m is without doubt the best 44mm log cabin that gives you so much outside covered space which is airy and a great place to relax in the summer out of the sun, and to keep all your deck chairs , seats, tables, etc, safe and locked up, and on those rainy days read a book or just chill.

And all for such a ridiculously low price, please ask us for details on pricing if you are a dealer. we are not public orientated,.

Sadly unlike most companies that sell directly to the end user and to dealers, we do not, we respect our customers (dealers) and their hard work, dedication, and we believe in local dealer networks, servicing the public.

The reason most companies and if you look about you will notice that only we do not display pricing, this is because we do not want to use our dealers to get the brand name out there, then undercut our hard working dealers and take the business ourselves, this is what we call in the business, the LLE ( Lithuanian, Latvian ,Estonian way!) Not good for business, and shows deceit on every level of business. But if you have no business ethics from the start, and money is your driving force, then what can you expect. which explains why we remain when others die and wither away.

The Kate Log Cabin is offered as all our BL range of quality tight grained Scots Pine cabins with normal quality windows and doors or our heavy duty log cabin windows and doors, that also can come painted or lacquered. Depends really what your customer wants and needs.

Quality Log Cabins at sensible pricing, please ask us for pricing, it will knock you off your feet, and also you will be asking your current supplier why they have been overcharging you for so long. Please ask Ash for our pricing at ash@logcabinslv.co.uk

Thank you very much for reading this.

Baltics and the New Manufacturers of Log Cabins From Belarus

This is the beginning of a new era in Log Cabins where the prices go back to sensibility, the timber is not quick grown rubbish, and the timber quality is better than anything you have seen to date. This is not a joke, but you are paying at the moment over 800-1600 euro per cubic meter depending on the thickness of the log and what species. ( FACT) And the timber is in every sense quick grown pine-spruce,…. Read on……

The Baltics timber is OK… some of it is excellent, if the tree is 60 years plus, but there is not much left., and sadly now most is FAST GROWN and thats why its sold cheaply in bulk by the governments, IKEA pay per cubic meter if you look what per hectare yields that being 250 cubic meters of unseasoned logs approx, give or take 2% , the price per cubic meter is 7 euros, YES 7!!! you pay per cubic meter for your log cabin a massive 800-1600 euros plus. that is for a finished board ( you must remember that it goes through quite a difficult process to make it a square edged ,cabin log) ( kiln drying and and and ) .! However Ikea does get it cheap, and the reason for this is simple, the timber is fast grown crap! ((FACT))… Which is why 70% of it it made into board.. Ikea uses 1% of the worlds timber a year! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2357216/IKEA-uses-staggering-1-worlds-wood-year.html , and do you know what’s funny, they have a FSC badge….. talk about deforestation. I would love to see the fuel bill from all the people and all the cars used and trucks used to haul that amount of timber out of all the forests, and see how much fuel that came to, and then the trucks and people and and replanting if they do??? I think the ECO ethos of this company was lost long ago.

We have been looking for the replanting photos,can’t find any, found millions of their products though, I think we should all think about how green Ikea really is?

And it’s not just Ikea!!!! We are not singling out this company. just putting facts down as they really are.

www,logcabins,lv.co.uk, realise its difficult to change your supplier, who has actually been ripping you off for more than a few years and have gotten very wealthy , and each and every year rise the price of the cabins without actually making your cabin quality any better in any way at all, especially after so many years of lies being told to you about best prices ( which is absolutely shameful lying ) , but everything you have been purchasing lately ( that’s for more than 7 years) is extremely overpriced, and the quality is in our regard crap, its shameful. Most glulam cabins from the baltics are made on vertical presses, and are in essence just loads of finger jointed off cuts , I have seen finger jointed timber manufactured one log that is, from 4 bits of timber, thats madness, that means the log has four joints at the end, and its massively finger jointed through out the log, because of the lack of quality timber, the mills are sticking together whatever they can to manufacture what they call Glulam from, and is sold to you as quality glulam, and what we call here at LV a waste made log (wastelogs) ! It’s not what i would call a beautiful log by any means. many cabins are manufactured from (wastelogs)…

All you have to do is purchase one building of our small 3x4m cabins lets call it a , a “PUNT” and then you will see that what we are telling you is the truth, and why not try it in 80mm Glulam, the prices are near on the same and a Baltic 44mm, but you get so much more for your pound.

Our standard windows and doors will come from our specialised window and door manufacturer for log cabins, and we can honestly say hand on heart our windows and doors are better than anything on the market to date.

Glulam Logcabins , Glulam 2 bed room log cabins, Glulam Garages

Timber Cabins Super Factories

To explain the market takes a lot of reading and believing what you read, and then watching for the signs, the first sign we saw were last year when Belarus stopped selling all unseasoned timber to the Baltic’s, this was a sign that the Belarusian government had seen the light thank god, and understood that the Baltic’s were getting seriously fat and extremely wealthy from their timber resources, ( Belorussians now will reap the rewards and the money once coming into the Lithuanian government coffers that was just wasted on guns, tanks, Army, and stuff that they have never really needed will now be spent on Belarusian schools and, kindergartens, and pensions and higher wages as they were only earning a fraction of the actually value of their timber which was being exported to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

This was a very smart and clever move by their President. Alexander Lukashenko

However there are extreme consequences to come to the Baltic nations because of the lack of now raw material NOT coming over the border.

Firstly, the price of the cubic meter went up drastically, as Belarus now will only sell timber that is kilned, molded and possible notched. Which means that the waste material that comes from this timber is now not available to the Baltic’s to use for their kilns, this makes a huge difference, no more Eco heating pellets in bulk, and plus the Lithuania government have from the first of January 2020 upped its price of gas by a huge 15% plus electric, and to make matters worse for the Lithuanians the tariff is on amount, so the more you use the higher the tariff. Some say unfair, but when you have a country that only has a Police Force that is not corrupt, but everything else around you is, then you have problems. I am all for the Lithuanian Police Force, they will even arrest a President. But sadly they do not make the policies. It would be perfect if the chief of police of Vilnius Renatas Požėla or someone of this man’s rank was elected President. Then Lithuania would be a just and serving country to all. ( Nothing political here, just observations).

So as you can imagine this will increase prices drastically next year and the years to come, which means you either pay more for your log cabin and earn minus or look for a different cabin supplier. The customers will not keep earning And as we were the first in the UK to sell cabins, designed pretty much every design now offered by everyone, including our Clock house, twin skin system etc, we think that we have the right to share with you, the customer the truth.

Fact, Belarus planted 145.000 hectares of Pine /Spruce since 2014. And it’s a fact that the country is 49% forest. Also fact is that The Belarusian President believes his forests to be the jewel of the country and understands the value of replanting and conservation and forest management. This is Fact……… Fact, Belarusian timber if we pick Scots Pine is in my opinion one of the best in this end of the world.

None of this is guess work, or fantasy, its fact, and life for the cabin industries in the Baltic’s will change and sadly not for the better.Over the next 10 years will be gone at the rate the government is selling off forestry land to large and hungry customers like Ikea!

As you have read on previous blogs associated to this topic, the Baltic’s countries have been totally mad and have sold all their forest land to IKEA, not trees, but land that they sit on, so the Lithuanians who were once proud of their forests will in the not so distant future see massive price hikes at the government timber log actions for the logs that are left, and trust me, the ones that are left will not be the best ones.

Which means a price hike in every area. And means, you the cabin seller, will see a a 3×3 in the not so distant future costing in 28mm over 100 euros to buy ex works.

Log Cabins LV .co.uk have over the last few years seen this coming and decided to change our buying, manufacturing keep our Eco credentials  and manufacturing in a country that has one of the largest forests in this end of the world, are FSC certified, and where the timber is the best, plus there timber management system is flawless, also we are now able to offer 2002 pricing on our buildings, be them glulam, timber frame, and solid wood cabins starting at 44,mm and above. Just ask us and we will oblige.

If you are interested in joining the winning team then please do not hesitate to send us an email. Thanks for reading folks, I am not a journalist, so if this is a hard read for some, apologise, but sometimes it’s hard writing facts and making it enjoyable at the same time. (Actually this is for the Lithuanians a sad day because it means honestly an end to the cabin market here).

Best Regards, Have a nice Day!!

Deforestation in the Baltics.

Carrying on from yesterdays Blog I have a few facts that might be of interest to you that care as I do about this industry and about quality/pricing and raw materials.

And Why the Log Cabin market will move away from the Baltic’s in the coming years completely. And why it is a very sensible choice to buy your Log cabins from LV..

Firstly, because we care about the forests, we care about your customer, we care about you and we understand that making a profit is essential.

Here are some facts about what is happening in the Baltic countries, and this will shock you.

Last year, IKEA bought a total of 72,000 hectares of forests in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Romania for at least 115 mln euros, this is from an article Bloomberg has done research on, then said with reference to Sweden’s farmer daily ATL.

IKEA did not elaborate on the share of forests purchased by the Swedish concern in Lithuania and the sum paid for the holdings in Lithuania.

IKEA’s subsidiary IRI Investments last summer purchased 33,600 hectares of forest in Romania, becoming the largest forest owner in this country. According to Romania Insider portal, the sum of the deal was EUR 50 mln. Thus, the estimates suggest that forests for EUR 65 mln have been purchased in the Baltic States, Verslo Zinios reported.

ATL said that IKEA plans to continue purchase of forests in order to reduce dependence on fluctuation of timber prices.

Also we must not forget that in the Baltic States there are rumors, because the governments from each state will not put on record how much forest is replanted, but in 2012 there was a survey done by Yale university that Lithuania (its where I am so I care about this country a little more than the other Baltic states) but none the less I care very much about sustainability.

So Lithuania in 2012 got the best score for being Super Green, now we are 84th on the list of countries that manage forest well!

I have added a few photos of how sadly deforestation is happening at an alarming rate.

This Photo shows one of the oldest massive forests in Lithuania in 2005/ 2006

The same massive forest in 2018/2019…….. GONE……………… This is not how you harvest a forest… And why is it now fields?

This is not the way to cut forest, and if you are truly a company that cares about where your log cabin timber comes from , and how it is sourced, then a rethink of your supplier is seriously needed. Just because you see FSC you think its ok, its not!

Tomorrow I will try and show how forest management in other countries really work, and how other countries understand the necessity of replanting . Sadly some countries fall foul to greed not ECO management. Also there should be limits on how many cubic meters of timber companies can cut each year! Also if they are bragging that they only use FSC then they should be made to replant immediately. Not 4/5/6 years later. And to replant 2 trees for every one they cut.

Forests are not just a resource for log cabins, timber buildings etc, they also help the Ecosystem, for example, flowers, birds and all wild life, Deer, Boar, foxes, mushrooms, berries, so much , yet as you can see by these first photos i have shown, the ECOsystem is completely destroyed. And yes our Team care, which is why we are moving our full production of manufacturing of our cabins to another country that one has better timber, two cares about its timber resources and three replants more than anyone else. Last year alone 145.000 hectares.

We hope you join us and not buy or overpay for cabins that are manufactured from timber that should never ever have been allowed to be felled.

More tomorrow…..

Under 2.5m Log Cabins 2016

 

Log Cabins LV as always designs amazing log cabins that have turned a dull back garden into an amazing fun filled space, our Clock House was the first of the iconic buildings, then we designed the twin skin system which turned a cold single skin cabin into a warm, cozy workspace environment.

 

Our DF Range, which is without doubt the best range under 2.5m high cabins in the business, we then designed the New Ki Range, again an amazing curved roof range, completely unique to LV and only LV dealers.

 

We have gone back to the drawing board and really tried our best to come up with a cabin range that allows maximum head clearance, as sadly the government ruling on 2.5m height really does make most cabins which are on the market look squat and dark internally.

 

Therefore, we have designed New for 2016 our Dutch Barn Roof Range of Log Cabins, which are head height friendly.

Garden cabins come in shapes and sizes; they also come in all different thickness.

There are 19 mm, 28 mm, 35 mm 44 mm, 58 mm and 70 mm.

Log Cabins can also come in 100 mm and above, but the standard garden cabins come in 19 mm, 28 mm, 35 mm 44 mm, 58 mm and 70 mm as these are the most popular sizes.

So what sizes is good for what purpose.

 

So here is a guide to help you!

 

19 mm log cabins are actually not really log cabins; they are manufactured from roof board material, which are fashioned together to resemble something that looks like a cabin!

Sadly 19 mm log cabins are manufactured in a certain way that does not allow the notches to be waterproof, the board is just to thin to cut twice.

So this one of the main reasons why we do not offer 19 mm log cabins.

 

They are also extremely expensive when you actually look at how many cubic meters of timber are used for the manufacturing process.

 

So are 19 mm Log Cabins worth the amount asked for them, the answer sadly is no!

They are a waste of good quality roofing boards, the windows and doors fitted to them are normally rubbish, and the hardware is cheap. Even on price they are super expensive!

 

28mm log cabins are nearly in the same league as 19 mm cabins, they are what we use as floor boards, but they do make a great 3 m x 3 m garden reading room, or a place to grow flowers, storing your push bikes, or BBQ, but saying all that, they are still cheap, and will not last more than say 4 years and you will start to notice windows and doors sagging, the building leaking, and November the 5th will come around and its used to light the bonfire!

 

19mm and 28mm log cabins are normally bought because of their price tags, but when spending say £800 to £1200 you have to ask yourself if this is really a good purchase. Are you buying a cabin that will last the test of time, or are you just throwing your money into the wind?

 

35mm log cabins are great, cheap, and fairly good at keeping water out and normally well priced.

Most come with budget double glazing, and the windows and door frame work is that normally of a 44mm log cabin.

A lot of budget mills sell these as they are a quick turn around and normally they are honestly priced, and if you don’t have a high budget, then a 34mm cabin is normally a safe bet!

 

 

44mm log cabins have now become the publics most sought after size, they are great value for money and most of the time they are water proof and come with windows and doors that will last a couple of years with out too much problem.

 

70mm Log Cabins are if cut from good quality timber, which has been dried correctly and notched correctly are fantastic value and well worth investing in.

Log Cabins LV the sensible choice!
