OK,,, I am not one to just jump on people about their designs, pods etc, , because I have designed in the past, 23 years back some not so great cabins that have in not been as good as I would have liked them to have been, but we live , learn, and move forward, but I can not forgive sheer negligence, , and complete i do not care at all syndrome.
I found this on the internet, and i asked myself, was it the stapling, fixing, attachment of the artificial grass, or was it the artificial grass, or was it the gate hinges, the mix of colours of the door, window and the cladding, the path, may be the plastic buckets , the light green colour things round this building , or is it that these look nothing at all like the real thing.
I am sorry to kill the dream, but if you really want something different in life, then try harder, and do not stop just before the end, otherwise it looks a mess. What I can not understand is why Air B&B would allow such a shack to be allowed to be rented to the public?
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..
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.
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.
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………
Designed and Manufaturered by a Britt, For a Britt to go into a British Garden!
For many years we have been designing buildings, be it a passive house, camping pod, log cabin, or Twinskin site office, we have just about done the lot, and as a Britt, I understand that quality is everything. For many years I took my personal designs, which went from 10 to over 7000, and designing houses, is not easy, also everyone of my cabins is unique to us. I then gave my orders to a manufacturer we had helped start up, when we met this mill it had no staff, no timber, no machines, zero, and we took it from a empty building to one of the best players in the market, that were ( I say were) extremely good, but sadly this company did not invest in its good fortune, which was my market share and its turnover and profit. We worked so incredibly hard, but what we realised being in the middle, was that the mill earned quite good money, and so did the dealer, the UK dealer earned more than us the designers and manufacturers combined. So I decided to sack all our dealers, one by one they were let go, a few were very very unhappy, trust pilot is full of there hidden agendas, but I do not care, I don’t, I do not need a greedy person selling my designs, then I changed mills, ( Thank god new owner is a liar and a creep) as I had asked this mill repeatedly to manufacture better windows and doors, (10 years of asking) and no I was not going to pay more, as the price for cabins from them was so high and monthly they were rising prices, 5%. 3%, 7% and, and they sadly started manufacturing their cabins from local logs, = Quick Grown Pine, ask a Britt to tell you the truth, as the Lithuanians will bend the truth about 1000km slightly to where they purchase their, lumber, logs, timber. 99.9% use quick grown pine, local, which sadly is good for burning or paper, and not very good for cabins.
Also manufacturing cheap windows and doors, they are masters, but to manufacture windows and doors, they are crap at it, seriously the whole market is crap at manufacturing windows and doors, I designed some with a small company out in the sticks, they were very good, but not perfect, they had 2 massive hinges, , and now I think our cabins are 100% the best of the best in the UK, you have to pay the price for the best, but it’s a life time cabin, not a 5 years wonder.
I hate to say this, but now is the time to only purchase a cabin from the Baltics with a Debit or Credit Card, and it must be through a UK Registered LTD company, Not Lithuanian company, or bank, as they are all sadly now going bust, and you will lose your money, there is too many uncertainties in this end of the world.
I was always told if the website is not finished and they have copied too much from British Sites, and they do not have an international bank account, i.e in the UK with a Merchant account attached to that, then steer wide, as you will lose your money. Merchant accounts means the bank trusts you, no merchant, no trust.
I am not being racist to the Lithuanians, not at all, I love this country , I have been here 22 years, but to trust an unknown company here, that you hardly know, and pass over money, complete MADNESS! And most can not take credit card payments.
OK.. who designed the Clock House? Yes me, and so many people have copied them, and not to a standard we would say wow, check this out. So check this one, it’s for sale for £5000, they say hardly used and blar blar blar.
OK, lets look at this cabin fairly and honestly, its been up years, it would be impossible to separate the logs with out breaking them, you would need to find the manufacturer of this cabin, I know, as its my design and I know every one who copied my designs, the windows and doors are pants, notice anything, something missing, yes thats right gutters, so the water has been running down the walls, this cabin is in very poor condition. The reason I mention this is that this Log cabin old version Clock House has shrunk( direct down) , so the boards that were 44mm x 115mm or what ever they were, are now 43mm x 111mm or what ever, but not what it was when it was bought new, it has shrunk, and to try and get a replacement log , impossible. Custom made, and custom price.
Now if you look below and see what a you should be looking for, a Clock House with Pedigree.
The Cost Of this is £8200 plus vat, Plus you pay into a UK bank, UK Compnay, and with a Credit / Debit Card.
Never pay in to a foreign Cash Bank Account, and in cash. Worst thing you could ever do. There is not one compnay here I would pay that way! NONE!
When a company has lots of dealers, it means £2000 goes to the dealer no mater what( thats your money) I sacked one dealer because he charged a customer £9.000, for just handling the cabin and delivery. And 90% of them go bust with in 3 to 5 years, owing the tax man 100’s of thousands. Or sadly ripping off the customers, or both.
To claim under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act, the item or service you bought must have cost over £100 and not more than £30,000.
You don’t have to have paid the full amount on your credit card – the card company is liable even if you made only part of the payment (a deposit, say) on your card.
It’s the value of the goods you’re buying that is key – not the amount paid on the card.
For example, if you ordered a new car from a car dealer and paid a £500 deposit with your credit card and the balance of £10,000 by cheque, you would be covered for the whole £10,500 if the dealer went out of business and you didn’t receive your car.
You have the same rights against your credit card company as you have against the retailer or trader.
So if your claim is for a repair then this is the claim you would put to your credit card provider – you wouldn’t be able to also ask for a refund, for instance, if you were actually claiming for a repair or a replacement item.
You won’t find this on other companies websites, because they just don’t care , they don’t want you to know your rights, you must always pay with a card, and to a UK LTD company, not sole trader, but LTD you will get your money back if you do not get your product. However saying that, you must be fair also, and negotiate, but thats for a limited time, like 3 minutes… lol……
In Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, it would be very hard, especially now we are out of the EU—UK—— of ever getting your money back, they like to receive but not return. They will make excuses, then block you. Not all, but I would say nearly all, they are like Trust pIlot full of crap! Recession brings out the worst in everyone.

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….
Sadly there are as always more log cabin companies going bust and today we are speaking about Ireland, and its a bad day for the end customers, as we have been told there are as many as 3 just in Kilkenny. One in Particular owing many 1000’s and 1000’s. Now this would not be a problem in any way at all if the customer had paid by credit card, but they as always paid by cash, which is the dumbest thing you can do ever. I know this makes nothing better saying this, but I tell all my resellers to take deposits by credit cards, and the feed back I get is, that in Ireland especially the customers do not want to pay by credit card. Which is madness, OK here is how the cabin Industry Work, Simple.
The Reseller, Say Leon, calls us here at the factory and asks us if we would sell to his company our cabins, we then give him some of our designs, and they then start selling. Once they have sold a cabin, then its for the reseller, Leon to send us over the deposit for the cabin, once that is done, we then send over the plans, this is for him to take to the customer, and for them to say yes, he then signs the plans off, and then the cabin goes into production, we manufacture and you the customer would get it from the reseller in 7/8 weeks later. Once it is loaded on the truck, and we sign it off and the driver has acknowledged it is on the truck, its then stops being our property, and it is then the resellers. We do not pay for the trucking.
Now the trucking company will ship the cabin with out deposit, if they have done business with the Irish company previously and have-had a good relationship with said company. But If the cabin is put into storage, after say 2/3 months pass by and the reseller has not paid his bills, does not answer calls, emails etc, he will receive 3 emails from the shipping company, these emails demand payment with in ex days, they must pay for this cabin,, if they do not, then the shipping company is in its rights to sell the cabin and collect its money owed. I have heard of shipping companies selling the cabin just to retrieve their owed money! This is completely legal, and the problem is the only person that can take the cabin from the storage is a Judge or the Reseller ( we do not have address for customers of the resellers or any idea who owns what) , but even then its very difficult, as the cabin belongs to the shipper plus Reseller, and the dispute is between them, and not the customer who initially put the deposit down for the said cabin, and because the reseller will not tell the shipping company the owners name, they can not offer it to the customer who bought it off the Reseller. and by that time the person/persons do not believe anyone and call a lawyer, and if you contact the owner, they will only deal with the reseller even if you tell them the facts. Its madness, and we make it plain and simple once the cabin leaves the Factory its not our concern, unless something is wrong with the cabin, which there never is thankfully! These kind of problems only occur thankfully once every five-six years, and or when the economy starts to take a tumble, then people get desperate and do stupid things. None of our dealers ever started off just being untrustworthy! It happened because of a reason, and we are always the last to hear about it. But I think we are the only compnay , unlike all the others to have sacked 99.9% of our dealers in 2020 because of this problem, as we had experienced this in 2007/2008.
We believe we are the best of the best in this up and down industry because we do care, and we do help, but sadly we are only the manufacturer, if you buy from us, its all in our pocket, if you buy from a reseller, once its on the truck and signed for, the company you bought the cabin from is responsible.
WHAT STOPS ALL THIS MESS IS PAYING WITH A DEBIT -CREDIT CARD!
WE ONLY ACCEPT PAYMENTS THROUGH CREDIT, DEBIT CARDS
Buying Direct, is safer, cheaper, and takes a lot less time, we always have trucks moving, , from A to B, and because all the buildings on the trucks are are ours, we can do a drop , drop, drop, if you buy from a reseller, then things get tricky, or it seems that way now, as there is less sales, and most websites ( resellers) just tell lies after lies.
Below is a massive amount of different designs I personally have done over the years, there are many more 1000.s but heres a few to let you in on our world.
Please watch this video, it has hundreds of designs, Hundreds.
So you are fed up, and want to live the easy life away from man, his politics and all his greed, you have bought some land, its in the middle of no where, and all you have is the ability to get cold water.
So you need a cabin that will really tell mother nature to F off and no matter what she throws at you, you have the ability to ride through storms, and from mother nature get all the power you need to live comfortably, and not worry to much about anything else but what your going to eat.
So lets start, water, a massive Drum that collects water, and then you need a well water filtration system, and a solar panel array, plus a Helix wind turbine. And thats about that. Trouble is, everything costs a lot of money.
So we have decided to come up very soon with an off grid cabin with everything included, that means insulated window shutters, a very very strong insulated roof, this you can fill with many different products, some people use Rockwall, or Cork , bubble wrap, BUBBLE WRAP IS SERIOUSLY CHEAP and you can use so much of it, and remember that bubble wrap is inert.So excellent for insulation solutions.
We sell Log Cabins all over the world, check out our trust pilot and you will see the people that purchase our cabins are from many different countries, this is because we do a lot of off grid cabins, or 2 bed twinskin log cabins and help the locals get off grid power, and live a nice safe life.
If you are looking for an off grid cabin, please give us a shout and we can help you.
If you are looking to live off grid, or 90/10, then please give us a call. Thanks to Trust Pilot they have removed some of our ex dealer rubbish, please , if you see our name, LV or FC on other peoples website please please tell us. WE HAVE SACKED MANY DEALERS FOR OVER CHARGING. STEALING,LYING.CONNING.
Last…….. ALWAYS PAY WITH A CREDIT CARD…………
OFF GRID LIVING TWIN SKIN LOG CABINS FACTORY CABINS
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!

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.
Windows from glued timber (68 mm system), with double glass and rubber seals (Our Standard)
Tilt/turn hinges from a German manufacturer (Our Standard)
Double doors from laminated timber (cladded from both sides) (Our Standard)
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…
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!
OK…. there is quality and there is Factory Cabins which has the highest quality regard on design, build and price. In todays life, there are lots of people that really want the best of the best, and it is a forgone conclusion that if you manufacture with the best materials and very highly skilled craftsman the outcome will be a product of intense beauty, to with stand mother nature and the years in front. Many people buy a log cabins or a Timber Frame Buildings due to aesthetically pleasing pictures, and 3d videos companies show case. We are very different, we design amazing houses, but we build superb timber frame buildings, as a drawing is never as good as the real thing!
This is exceptional quality as you can see, and with out fault, and where can you buy this from, Well, sadly only us, why? because we manufacture houses to the highest standard on the planet, and our skilled craftsman are the best of the best. Which really does mean……. we are the best and thats that!
I will say this till I am blue in the face, but no matter what country you are in, if the builder wants cash, always say to yourself this one question, does your boss in Tesco’s, of in the bank , or where ever you work pay your salary in cash, no he does it through the bank, and you do the same, and my personal recommendation is
ALWAYS REMEMBER PAY WITH A CREDIT CARD
Sadly I have seen too many self employed cabin sellers, resellers, in England and Ireland steal, and I mean they have no intension at all in ever giving you the cabin, they just steal. So my advice, is to speak to a minimum of 10 of their previous customers before giving them a penny, then pay them by card. That way your safe.
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.
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!!!!
Twin Skin Log Cabins 44mm x 100 x 44mm. yeah I know you have seen it all before, the best of the best and and, but seriously check out this video of my latest build, its seriously off the hook, (WHY?) I hear you ask, watch the video and then your questions are answered. There are many fraudsters out their, ( one reason we will not supply southern Ireland until they change the law , too many dealers stealing off the customers and shouting its a civil offence, even the Police know its messed up) but if the dealer plays it right he can steal and lie at will.
Which is why we sell direct, this way you get what you pay for, at the right price and at the quality level that will make you smile. We do not have missing bits, we have been here since 2001, yep we were robbed by many of the people who now shout their the best of the best in the UK, find out who has been bankrupt, and then ask yourself, do you trust this guy with your deposit.
To sell Log Cabins or Timber Buildings you have to love the product, as most people who call us are on the hunt, and they mostly have no fucking clue what is what and what they should pay for what they need, so they go to the first web sites and see ridiculously low priced, cheap, mass produced, shit, that will last if you are lucky 2 years until the water pours in.
We guarantee the cabin for 10 years, not just the timber, the building, and that includes our windows and doors and also the floor, roof, etc, please see our terms and conditions, extensive and very long, but in a nut shell , if you look after our cabins, your laughing. Do not trust people who say things like, arrr we use slow grown pine from Russia, LIARS, its impossible to buy now, but getting it from other countries that have the same kind of conditions for slow grown timber is easy to find if you just get off your lazy ass and look. And we looked years ago. So ours is slow grown, and good quality.
For Help……..Please send us an email, email@example.com or pic up your phone and call us …………0208 133 5164.. thanks for reading……. Sorry if swearing upsets you, but theft, lying and conning people upset us, we were the first to ever put cabins into the UK and Ireland, a lot claim this, but its all blar blar blar. And we like to keep this industry clean and fair, which is why we are hated… But who cares…… I sleep well!
In this video, I chat about a-lot, some might find it very boring, but others that really want to learn about this product log cabins and what to look for ( the crap and the good) , should watch this and keep going back to it, to remember that someone, me , spent some time showing you what is good and bad, and yes I think I am the best, but, I will loose money if I think what I am doing is right. I have unlike all the other companies sacked 90% of the dealers we had ( resellers) because their prices were crap, over pricing. If they are cheaper than Factory Cabins it means only one thing, the quality, is crap!
Next Video…..Drums beating,,,,,,,,,,,, the first ever side entrance Pods ever to be shipped to anyone ever….. So its history, and its had nearly 500.000 hits on you tube, not bad for one of our little little pods.
Self Employed Leon Vlahovic who is running around all of Southern Ireland claiming to be our reseller, or part of our company, he is not. this man is under now a fraud investigation, he calls himself Martin and other names, he is not to BE EVERhanded money, he will steal your money and run away. He is a criminal and as we said he now has a fraud case against him. If he owes you money etc, please call the Police, not a solicitor, or lawyer, the Police as there is a case now open on him for fraud.
This van is driven by a thief, he is not an LV reseller or dealer, he is not employed by us, has never been employed by us, and he has no standing with LV log Cabins at all in any way! Keep away from this guy completely.
Leon Vlahovic let’s put this into easy words so everyone understands, he has and is conning so many people out of sooooooooooo much money, he is a thief, and he is giving me a headache, and anyone who knows me, giving me a headache is dangerous. Leon if you are reading this, you are now wanted by me, and i will track you down, and have a few Lithuanians have words with you and your dishonesty, plus all that are involved with you, so every Lithuanian you meet, beware they are not my guys. You have stolen from a child who is terminally ill, off old people, and from so many victims, the Police will do nothing but say its civil, so my friend, I am going to hunt you down and deal with you in the right manner.I hate thief’s, and i told you when you started, if you want to be a reseller, you must be honest, to everyone, all members of the public, no excessive pricing and no stealing, lying or making promises you can not keep, or there will be …..Severer ….. consequences.

I am getting rude calls from snotty solicitors who are blaming me for your disgusting behaviour, this I can deal with, as we have no legal commitment to your customer, as our legal right stops, at our factory gate, when its loaded ( the cabins) on to your trucks here in Lithuania , for your customer, apart from the fact you were using with out permission my logo, which is a civil offence, but what you have done to the victims children, and old people, and lie and steal, is just so beyond Comprehension. Now watch your back, as the Animals are coming for you…..

You have no clue how disgusted I am in you and your behaviour!
Leon Vlahovic the smiling ugly disgusting thief! Wanted!
Please everyone send me the plans of the cabins, and we will at the mill manufacture them at our factory price. Nothing added.
To manufature Log Cabins its an art, you do not just trow timber in at one end, and a log cabin comes out the other, OK there are some companies who manufacturer bulk and it is throw in one end and what pops out the other is, well madness.
We Manufacture the best, we build to customers request, so everything you see in this video, , everything to light fixtures, wiring etc, was done to the way the customer asked. We are very proud of our quality, of course, and we are also very proud of our teams that put our buildings together, assembly is always the hard part. Many many years ago, we would sell, 10 to 20 truck each and every month of the same buildings, and they all were OK but they were nothing special, now we manufacture only what we want and for who we want, because to but a lot of love and care in a building, you must really take your time and do it correctly. This twinSkin, ( please remember we were the first ever to offer a twinskin log cabin in any form, and I was the first ever person in this industry to design, manufacture and sell this system, so I am quite proud that now everyone offers them, yes they copied, but I do not care, as it means that everyone has the ability to now be warm in the winter in their log cabins, however the windows and doors are something special in our cabins, there is no one offering these, and the reason for this is price, our are super expensive, but, the reasoning behind this is sound, the firth part of any cabin to give in is the doors, they always fall apart, check out the top 4 bulk manufacturers on google, and look at their doors and windows, utter crap! they will never show you an up close photos of them until they arrive at your door in a badly packed building, of them, because they are crap, but we do, because I am super proud
Yep….. WOW, I know everyone today had that response when we handed over the building to the customer, it was quite the celebration, these new offices were built in 2 weeks, and wired out, and fitted with kitchens and bathrooms, if your looking for that perfect office building, then please come to Factory Cabins, its ok manufacturing small pretty garden quality cabins, but we also manufacture the offices, schools and the like, and for money that will not kill your pocket, there is no reason to go to a reseller, , always come direct. Always pay with a credit card.
Here at Factory Cabins we believe in safety, thats quality of build, safe and sturdy log cabins and well manufactured safe windows and doors, we also believe that when you pay for something , you must be safe also with payments. So thats why we always shout, Credit Cards, nothing but credit cards. We get a-lot of stick from other dealers who’s, banks will not give them merchant accounts, as they possibly have bad credit scoring, or have been bankrupt or are a risk, remember its hard now to get a merchant account, the banks must trust you. With credit card facilities the banks take the risk, so they really look closely at their customers. Our trust Pilot review is always hit by the rouge trader, but, its either because we have done a review on them and their quality, and they don’t like it, ( yes John ) or they just have no sales, because the customer would rather come to an established dealer than some fly by night!
Always pay with a credit card.
I am called lots of names by many many people, and companies, but if I see you lying, then I will just jump on you so hard, so quickly, because this industry needs to raise up from the ground, and not stay still with crap being the ultimate product leaving most company warehouses.
If you are looking for the best!!! Then please give us a call, and if we have bad reviews by people on Trust Pilot, and all they do is throw insults, then I am doing a good job,,,, I am hurting the scammer…..
This months Large Build, Twin Skin 70mm + 100 + 70mm, quality logcabins always……
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.
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.
Yes its a hot tube cover, also its a changing room, also its a place to get away from everyone and everything. Its on the Isle Man and it stood through many storms, why, we made it.
I want to make a statement now, see this amazing forest, well some of it ends up in your house, in many different forms, its the Russian well managed, well kept inner northern forest, and the UK does not have anything vaguely that looks even similar to this, and it never will do, because each and every government , cares only about money and zero about forests. And now you are upsetting the man that could stop your house building, gas, and everything else you need. So before you let the media completely brain wash you, look at this picture, think, this is there because President Putin cares about his forests, and then think, if a man loves nature so much, how can he be so bad?
President Lukashenko of Belarus, now this man has grown his forest into one of the best in the planet, and we are very dependant on him for timber. Sadly though America want as always to upset the world, which they do daily and hourly.
Always pay with a credit card.
Before you start to believe what people say about people, really get to know the person , and not what your told by CNN or BBC, both of which are liars and fraudsters. Get to know the truth before you make judgement, and a man who cares for his wildlife, is never a bad man!
