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..

Being Safe when buying a Log Cabin.

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.

When you just know the person is wrong!

All bad today sadly!

OK, customers, and the ones you want and the ones you don’t, the ones that lie and waste time and the ones that just buy, pay, get the log cabin, pod, delivered and are happy.
OK, lets start with Mr X, he asked me for 18 prices, 18, and each cabin progressively became more and more expensive, and like most people who are unsure of what they want they go for bigger and bigger, however, when they say the own a plane, and you think, they don’t tell you but in the back ground you can hear planes, your thinking, ok this massive 15m x 5.5m twinskin had better be heavy, so mother nature does not blow it away, so you twin skin it, make the roof heavy and just make sure the cabin is fit for purpose, not a a pile of crap,

As you can see , there is a lot of area for the wind to build up both sides, and if you know anything about buildings, this building, theoretically could blow over, or the roof could be completely ripped off , which is a-lot of weight and wood flying about in the wind remember everything is possible, and a twin skin version of this with out heavy roof, tie downs, metal rods going through the walls, in 44mm x 44mm, is about £25.000, with all the extras, and double roof and heavy glulam purlins and really getting this building near to build standards, close on £30.000, and it will not blow over, loose a roof, we have added toughened double glazed tilt and turn windows and doors, insulated the middle from the two sides, this building is simply the best , we know the and no one can touch the quality of the build, design or the pedigree .And if I designed it, it must be the best, I look for what can go wrong first, this eye to detail means my cabins last longer than anyones. I was told yesterday that our prices are very keen compared to the rest of the market.
So Mr X I have planes took one look at the price was extremely rude, and said do not phone back. Now the only upsetting thing about this , is getting my boys who work extremely hard to price up so many buildings, waste of time and energy. And MrX now is left getting his building from the low end , budget end of the market! but he will still have to pay 20+ as he has no clue what costs what!

So please if you call us, do not waste our time, your time, tell us what you want, how much you have to spend and lets move on! Thanks.

Arrrrrrrrr last thing, when you see a cabin that has a base like this, run……. talk about BAD!!!! This is awful…. If I was the customer to this cabin I would have demanded my money back for both base and cabin.the base should always be the same size as the cabin walls, flush, there must not be a sill anywhere around the bottom, otherwise you get water ingress underneath the cabin equals rot. This was built by an idiot. Its called “ingamess” in most baltic companies, means i do not know what I am doing.

We have a copy of the site page this comes from, and what they are bragging to have done, at the moment its —-ing crap! If I were this compnay I would concentrate on what you know, not what you don’t. And sorry if you are the customers who bought this….

Designed and Manufaturered by a Britt, For a Britt to go into a British Garden!

Please remember back in 2014 i was warning people about good and bad, way before 90% of the market existed, helping people, telling people the truth. please read this……

Its Old, its gospel and it still applies today as it applied back 8 years ago………. Imagine….

Hard Customers.

You know you get these days when you just want to shout and say, your design is crap, its going to fall down, and you have too many windows and its too thin, and you want it for nothing, and you want the best and you moan at the price and all the time, we, me, are thinking actually it was a we, as three of us all thought, fuck this design is dangerous and shit. But what can you say, you try and help, but all you get is the customer really not listening, and not believing because he has spent hours listening to wankers on the phone who know nothing about cabins, and boring the poor customer to suicide, and then when he actually lands on our pages and says why are you slightly more than the worst fucking company in Lithuania, I just sit back in shock and am mortified.

Log Cabins are not easy to design, and in this day and age, they are really hard things to manufacture as most of the components are hard to find, thats the quality parts, we only use quality, the cheap crap, is everywhere, most bulk mills will have containers and containers of rubbish handles and doors, and why are we not as cheap as these other mills, simple….

Harrods———–Tescos.

You want your Cabin to come with quality attached at every level and pay for it, you would go to Harrods.
If you were looking for a cheap, off the self, OK cabin, where would you go, Tescos.

And thats the difference from us to them.

Simple look at this.

Take a look at the first 2 photos, you might think, they look ok, looks good quality, and the price OK… Well you are deluded or on a £4 budget, as these are the worst hinges and worst doors for a good quality log cabin which were ever manufactured. Awful….
Nothing even looks remotely hard wearing or robust……….

Now check these out, these are our standard doors and windows, and this is just the beginning on why we are picked time and time again , because our quality is second to none, there are companies out their now copying our look, but a copy handbag is a copy handbag!

All hardware German.
All windows and doors Aluminium rain drip trays x 2 on windows.
Windows fitted with a 5 point locking tilt and turn system.
Doors also come with 5 point locking system.

Before we tell you, you tell us what size purlins the compnay your thinking of buying from offer in their price, these hold the roof up. Important.

Lastly yes, we are lucky to say we pick our customers, we get about 30 requests a week, we pick just 10 from these. I might say yes and then have a customer start demanding, this equals returned deposit immediately. If you want the best then you play by our rules, which are exceptionally fair, if you don’t then go and buy the crap out there which is for sale! I do not care, my customers are important to me, if your not one of mine, then i am not loosing any sleep over if your cabin is safe, if everything is quality. if it gets to you on time, all bit and bobs with it, and making sure delivery is a pleasant exsperiance for you. And at no time allowing anyone to be rude to you. A zero free Drama way of getting a cabin, no middle men.And as more and more customers are coming direct, paying with a credit card and understanding its the best way to get the best of the best, and luckily i am speaking to people I like.

We are a British Company, we also have a British Merchant account, which you pay directly into with your visa or debit card. You are not paying into a foreign bank, which I would strictly suggest against doing, I won’t even do that. So with Factory Cabins you are getting it direct from us here in Lithuania, but the best part its paid into a UK bank.

Please remember it was us 21 years ago that put the first 40mm 5m x 5m super star log cabin onto the market, then we designed the clock house, then the twin skins and 28mm flooring and the mad thing we did was design over 7000 cabins. which means we have more designs made already than other company. It means we know our stuff.

Please look at our windows and doors and the other companies, and you will see ours are designed to last and the other companies are designed for bonfire night.
It really depends on how proud you are on what you manufacture.

Before you buy a cabin, please come to us and compare, get all there details and then get ours and we will beat them hands down for quality each and every time.

And Lastly if your buying rubbish, cheap mass produced crap like a £299 pound shed….. just think if the tree that had to be cut for that shed to be made , sawn up was worth all that effort.

Sauna…….

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

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

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

But…….

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

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

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

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

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.

Our Clock House Log Cabin at Christmas 2021

After designing this beautiful amazing building so many years ago, I so Love it when a member of the Public, Ian, calls me up and tells me he wants to buy one direct, and then he spends a small fortune to make my design look the best it could ever look.

We started our company here in Lithuania some 20 years ago, then when the UK decided it was to leave the EU so did we, and now we trade direct as a UK LTD company to the same audience but giving our customers something unique, and that is this, we have the largest collection of our own designed log cabins and timber buildings, and now we can sell them to you direct from our Factory, and you can pay us by credit card, and unlike everyone else, your getting your building direct from source, no greedy middle fingers, no one going bust on you or running away, as far as i am concerned you would be mad going anywhere else, unless your looking for cheap rubbish, then yes, we are not the company to speak to, and again from us manufacturing your log cabin in record time, and your getting a building that is freshly manufactured, its not from a pile of old mass produced cabins manufactured in 2019, our prices are great, your not purchasing your log cabin from a reseller who goes bust and runs off when he spends profit first and then can’t afford to pay us for his cabin bill, this happens far too often, and please check out our windows and doors.

Day and Night our Clock Houses looks amazing, thank you Ian for the photos, this Clock House is in Windsor, and fits amazingly beside a beautiful house, as this is the top of the line, Log Cabin. Factory Cabins is known for quality, please check out our windows and doors.

Ian your house does our design justice, or is it the other way around, not sure, but side by side, Perfect………..

Factory Cabins LTD Log Cabins LV

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.

Thank you for reading.
