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….

Compare Log Cabins Pricing (2) 2020

All our prices are ex works, which means no Vat or shipping, as from the 1st of January 2021 it won’t matter about VAT, there won’t be any to pay this end, only yours on entry, and that puts paid to massive stock on the ground, as 70% of cabins are bespoked.

Next Glulam Timber, if someone tells you they use Glulam logs, you must ask them to provide you with a certificate that the glue used in any part of the building is non toxic, also that the minimum length of log which the glulam board, log was constructed from, for your cabin walls or purlins , what ever, is more than one or one and a half meters, if it is made from small bits of timber, it’s not glulam, it’s called finger jointed, and it’s made from off cuts, so it is not a structural certified log with certification.

The certificates you will need to ask for if they say that it’s glulam this and glulam that, as most of the times they lie:

A glulam Log must be manufactured to GL24 (BS11), GL28 (BS14) and GL32 (BS16) in accordance with DIN and EN norms. so if your guy says , glulam , you say prove it.

if they can not provide these, then they are lying. And it’s not glulam. It means they are selling you walls made from offcuts and not C24 and above graded timber. I am glad we got that sorted out. Please remember this.

The KI range has been copied by all, and even the images have been stolen from our website, and other manufacturers have copied our unique design. this is not a shock to us companies with absolutely no integrity, along with the dealerships just want t earn, and where they get the design or how they manufacture it does not matter to them.

So as you can see this cabin is stolen from our site, and as you can see the price for this cabin is disgustingly high, and please believe me as the designer of this cabin, roof, its a hard cabin to manufacture, the gable ends must match 100% ( Curved apexes).

Our Design, Our Images, And over priced.

Then there is ours in 44mm, but you must remember we designed this cabin that happened over many months and we paid a skilled guy to sit for hours daily,actually monthly and years, we have done this, and some back street shed manufacturer thinks its ok to steal our designs.

Pity he does not buy from a good manufacturer or that his prices match ours.

And to top it off, here we go……

His 70 mm is £6190, seriously, not surprised he earned 11.000.000 last year!

Our 70mm ex works is……£ 3648, even with vat and transport, we are still over 1000 cheaper. if you pay us the Vat, but if you buy it with a VAT number ex works you are £2542 in pocket.

But it gets better. Ready…… they are little cabins , and the differences are small, i think £500 notes is a lot, but then I am still in touch with reality.

Check out this bad boy, this is his price for this cabin in 70mm, yep, 70mm, He buys from Ultimate Log Cabins, who sells to a lot of people, like https://www.morrowsectionalbuildings.com/ ,,,, https://logcabinsnorthernireland.com/,,,,,,,,, and the like, if you go on these sites you will see that even they have stolen our designs, images and photos, even our beloved Aurora Clock House, But what can you do, UK government is the most powerless government in the world, i even think behind somewhere like Chad! So theft, and criminal deeds be them stealing your deposits and going bust and then being allowed to keep the websites, like Trevor Watson did with Beaver log cabins in Ireland, or Geoff Morrow stealing my images and putting them all over his website because he thinks he is untouchable, he is not. he is a thief as like the rest. And now name and shame. Going to shame them all.

So Brian… ,,,,, SouthWest…. £11.783 for a 70mm 7m x 4m……. is someone on some hard core scrumpy, as i hear cider makes you mind do weird and wonderful stupid idiotic things, and in that area of the world it’s the favourite tipple I hear.

NOW OURS IN 70MM

70mm Log Cabins OC Range – 7.0 m x 4.0m Clockhouse Dorset 7004 is only, £5172 EX WORKS LT…….. The Best Double Glazed Log Cabins on the market, hard wearing 28mm floor, and a solid 19mm roof as always from FC A standard! Quality Windows and Doors !!!! SO PLEASE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS EX WORKS £6611 CHEAPER, IF WE ADD OUR VAT THE CABIN IS ONLY EX MILL £6258, HELLLOOOOOO IS SOMEONE BEING REALLY FUCKING GREEDY!!

That’s enough,,,, time for a cuppa,,, and also time for you all to ponder who is a crook! and why FactoryCabins.co.uk is number one…………..

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!

If you see this company, then you are looking at our pods, these were manufactured by us, every pod here is designed by us, manufactured by us and this is our quality. be careful of people who say they are selling LV and not… this company is NOT! BEWARE OF CON MERCHANTS…….

What is a PODBIN, Camping Pods for sale log cabins LV

Camping Pods, they are all the rage now, “AGAIN” so many people are looking for them, and so many people are buying “Podbins”, yes “Podbins” and I coined the phrase” remember Kevin Langham coined the phrase PodBins”  I also coined the phrase Clock House Log Cabins, Twinskin Log Cabins and now “Podbins”, and as the popularity of garden offices and Pods for camping in the UK resurges again camping pod sadly the build quality because of demand is becoming criminal and that’s where PODBIN came from…. You heard it first here on LV…

I have added a few images, or what I like to say is my designs from the heart, at what can be achieved with in a small space, yet giving everyone a fantastic feeling (warmth love and home) because when you’re at home your safe, when you are in my Pods, your home, just with a twist. But the love of my design, and the warmth of the build quality, envelops you in the spirit of a great stay and Holiday! 

Also my camping pod designs, that have been copied, and sadly some look or are in the PODBIN department, one company comes to mind, yep! Old man Keith from Arch Leisure is a prime example of that Podbin production, evolution, sadly Keith the owner has been selling toilets and showers, also low end caravans for so many years, he believes his copies of my pods, and a few other peoples designs,  but done in his way, the dreaded awful disgusting caravan way, in other words he manufacturers them like a caravan, they may look like a pod, but in reality they are just a curved version of a very cheap and cheerful ugly awful caravan, as its in his blood,  just shows where him and other like him are headed, extinction! , as are many others. The British public do not want a Caravan type environment any more, it’s time to wake up and treat our public with respect, we are not in Joe Butlins time, it’s gone, I know your reaching 70 soon Keith and you think you know what people want, you don’t, that’s why your prime business is toilet and showers. And even they are awful. Sorry, but they remind me of going to football as a child the smell and the doors hanging off and showers not working properly, and everything slippery and dirty. I hope the awful looking Podbins you have built, last and do not leak and that whoever has bought them understands you know nothing about nothing in construction and you have sold them a PODBIN.

Very soon, I will start a Blog and I and a structural engineer will rip the heart out of 999.9% of pods manufactures, and advice you the customer what is and is not safe to purchase. Safety firstly comes in structure, and that means a professional timber craftsman, I do not mean a chippy, I mean a guy who understands the force that mother nature can and does frequently attack small and large buildings. You must not forget we manufacture houses on a daily basis to high spec of TEK 17 which is the Norwegian build regulations, and we build over 250 houses a year this means we understand what is and is not good when it comes to manufacturing, as we are considered the best of the best

Mother nature attacks what ever it is, a pod a house a barn, and domestic building, or non domestic building the same, principles stay the same, and we must take into effect the wind loads, weights and pressures and the pressure inside and outside, how to tape a timber frame so the Sat rating is in the 0.2 mark, not like in the UK where its 10 ( Air sealing)  and how to keep a pod from being blown over or allowing the wind to cave in the roof, and all these small details goes into our pods, because we put our pods in extreme places, which means our camping pods are at the top end of the market, and not to be mistaken for the PODBIN’s out there and

Lastly the windows and doors must be certified against Fire, and theft, also have the CE stamp attached. And make sure they have not used the window or door frame as a key part of the strength of structure, this would mean the glass can blow out, under high pressure, many back street companies do this and not realise what they are doing, standing in front of a large window and it explodes, well, you can imagine what the insurance company would do with you, and police, plus the health a safety, so be smart. Always. Think LV, as we have done all the thinking for you.

Tan House, Tan Office, the cost is about 9000 pounds ex works , but is 100% amazing, made this about 8 years ago, yes we are ahead of everyone always. Siberian larch , fully kitted out!

…………………….The best is LV………………..

If any one asks me to make this,,,,,,, NO…………Never again,,,,, awful desgin, manufacturing it was a nightmare and alot of amazing Russian Northern Pine C24 graded timber was cut to make this.

Above shows you that our camping pods are built for strength in so many ways. But also they are the only pods built by senior house manufacturers who understand everything about everything. We lead the way, the others attempt to copy. ,,,,,,,,,BEWARE OF THE PODBINS!

Please look how thick the roof is above, this timber frame beautiful A++ building can with stand anything mother nature will ever throw at her!

Yes I know you love it, and so does the owner he bought quite a few! it’s not about fighting to win a camping pod order that counts for us, it’s about making sure that we treat everyone as family, and as family we want you to get the best, and the best, comes from us, our thoughts are not driven by our wallet but by the love of our designs workmanship and longevity, beauty of what we manufacture to blend in and compliment the surroundings. And to offer people a new kind of feeling, and new warmth and a new love in there lives!

We don’t just build amazing pods, we also dabble at amazing small houses! oh! and Big…..

Camping Glamping Pod Unit 2.4m x 4.0m

Camping Glamping Pod Unit 2.4m x 4.0m

Our New 2.4m x 4.0m Timber Frame Highly insulated Glamping Camping Pod Unit offer your customers now more than just a rustic feel.

For way too long the glamping camping pod market has pushed the same old, same old, and prices for the same old as are as always stupidly high and of course the quality stupidly low.

camping-glamping-pod-unit-2-4m-x-4-0m-3

Camping Pods are not supposed to be basic, they were designed for the customer who is a semi tent enthusiast, or a couple with children who are watching their pennies, but this does not mean that they need to be placed in some awfully built toilet roll, which has zero insulation and as much character as a sewage pipe!

camping-glamping-pod-unit-2-4m-x-4-0m-4

I find it so hard to believe that the awful copies of the original pods, with their UVPC windows and doors, actually are bought, by campsites.

As always cheap and cheerful enters into the equation, and campsite owners are actually only looking for profit, not longevity of product, or customer satisfaction.

camping-glamping-pod-unit-2-4m-x-4-0m-5

Log Cabins LV as always tries to offer a better product that lasts the test of time and is fitted with CE certified windows and doors, and which are manufactured by skilled craftsmen.

Our new Camping Lodges are not pods, they are so much more than Pods, they are the future of quality living in camping grounds, where the public is safe, and where standards are high!

camping-glamping-pod-unit-2-4m-x-4-0m-6

When companies use the wording CE to describe their windows and doors, you must not get confused by this, as it’s easy. The CE stamp is not just for the Glass, it’s also for the frame work. And the CE stamp on the frame work will have an identification code, this can be looked up and you can find out if it’s just for the glass, or for both, the frame work and glass packages.

And we are the only log cabin producer to actually offer our windows and doors with the CE certification that covers the windows and door windowpanes, also the joinery red glulam framework, as always Log Cabins LV offers not just the best quality, but we also offer the best advice.

camping-glamping-pod-unit-2-4m-x-4-0m-7

When purchasing cabins, pods, timber frame buildings you need to ask all these questions to the reseller……

Our New Camping Units are supplied completely finished to site, they are clad in Northern Siberian Larch, which has its natural oils, and is great at keeping mother nature out!

If you would like to know more about these units or anything else on our website please do not hesitate to ask, or send us an email.
