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….

Hard Customers.

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

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

Harrods———–Tescos.

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

And thats the difference from us to them.

Simple look at this.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Log Cabin Hot Tub Building

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.

Russian Forests

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.

Belarus Forests.

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!

Bad Or Good, YOU DECIDE.

First thought…..
Take away the Britmet Tiles and you get left with a shoddy shed!

Space, space is what you need in a park, also each pod much be a certain distance apart because of fire, and you only put vertical cladding if you know what your doing, this company has no over hang, and puts the facia directly to the outside cladding, which is why you have this problem we pointed out, but as you can see the company that installed manufactured these pods have not done the right thing and gone back, this company is with out doubt cheap and nasty, And I would advice to stay away. This company we sacked, and they still have our designs littered over their website, so we are doing the same, but rather than tell the world these are ours, we are saying, stay away, do not waste your money.

OK… Look at these Pods, I am not going to mention the company that made them, but if you look at them you will notice that the middle ones already have already rot, blue, black stain. “Why are they in this condition, they are new yes? ” yes they are , so why are they in so bad condition, and why are they sitting on the cheapest base ever made, that will fall apart , all these questions you are asking yourself, ( because you are thinking of opening a park) simple, badly manufactured, manufactured by people who actually have no clue in this world what they are doing. Disgusting,,,,,, Over priced Rubbish, we sell pods for £9.000, £25.000, £33.000,£38.000 and even £179.000 and none of them have ever turned out this way, because we tell our customers firstly how to treat them, and secondly what we manufacture is 100% quality, unlike this mess.

When you are looking for a quality camping pod, do not look for ones with roofs made of timber, it means your fucking stupid! If timber was a good product to put on roofs all the houses would have it?
Some people want to earn money so they purchase some land with an amazing view then they put in that view shit pods that look like old army barracks of world war 1, and why, because they had enough to purchase both land and a quality pod, but decided to buy the land and fill it with rubbish. and spend the rest on a holiday, I know you are all thinking I am being cruel, I am not, and this is why so many local authorities ask to see the plans of the Pods and which manufacturer if making them, and yes we are known in this industry as one of the top manufacturers.

Next getting back to this crap laid out on these awful cheap bases,If you look at the boxes on the same wall, these are for electric, and that black, and blue stain means that its a wet area, and then you throw electric into the mix. Not a very safe environment for children, staff, public, anyone for that matter.

Now here is a old , old photo of one of our first Pods, as this was where the standard was started for side entrance pods, and you will notice that rather than companies copy us and make it better, the total opposite has happened,,, its a shame..

Camping Pod 2.4m x 6.0 m first ever manufaturered

this was the first ever 2.4m x 6m Pod made, quality second to none, looks strong and handsome, clean and tidy. Why, because we made it. We manufacture houses, pods are our side line, which is why our customers always end up having us manufacture everything. If you want the best come to us.

Camping Pods for sale

We are house manufacturers, not a shed company or a company that is out just to earn so quick money from making poor quality Camping Pods, as to be honest there are so many about.I saw one the other day it looked like a caravan with a curved inside roof. Seriously, look at this Pod, its awful, it has zero of anything in it, and its a failure to begin with. The company manufacturing these seriously needs to stop and rethink. A camping pod must have feelings and these have zero. they are lifeless. And are designed for one thing, to take money, as many serious campers would not like to stay a night in these. Most campers who are looking for a night in a pod want romantic, and and, not sterile, awful, cheap looking surroundings.

we have many strings to our Cello, and the reason I chose a Chello is because we are educated qualified carpenters, who understand what it takes to make a real timber frame building that will last the test of time. We have also not tried to make our Pods look like, or feel the same as caravans, please we would never use wood as a roofing material,

Here are some really nice photos of our pods and some designs to follow.

This is what we offer…….. Do not be fooled, only this kind of quality is designed and manufaturered by Kevin Langham,, Factory Cabins LTD.

Arch Leisure Camping Pods.

You have to check out this company’s 3d link of the inside of their pods, my god, seriously, talk about rubbish timber, i took a few screen shots of the dead knots on the inside , the inside, imagine, who does quality control, who actually cares about the quality they are selling you.

You should be disgusted at yourself keith for building such rubbish pods, the inside T and G is fucking shameful. And you want people to pay for your crap (((((great value starting at prices from £9,950 + VAT & delivery with optional bunks and double bed.))))) great value you taking some medication.

Talk about cheap nasty pine, with black knots, awful…. absolutely disgraceful. Black knots means they are ready to fall out…….. and this is cheap nasty, pine, the cheapest you could buy.

Some Photos of random pods inside, ours…

Clean, beautiful timber, the LV way!
Hardly any knots at all, why because we have first pick of the timber, not last, (((Keith))
Is that not a beautiful clean canvas!! No knots.
Powerful structural beams!
And before anyone asks, about our beams, don’t, we are the masters of bending glulam beams, we can actually make a beam curved at 48 m long!

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.

Archleisure luxury ( glamping pod )

OK lets start dissecting this pod sold by Archleisure and really look at what its manufactured from.Actually it does not say much, just blar this and Blar that, and of course they use TLX silver, which LV were the first to offer, and still do, actually we now offer, Gold, and silver, depending on the customers wishes and needs. But lets study this photo, and by the way if you happen to go to https://www.archleisure.co.uk/camping-pods-for-sale.html the marjority of the pods he is showing on his website are LV’s , he just went to a cheaper , shed manufacturer to copy our designs after 8 years of doing business, so he could make them cheaper and as you can see, not as well built. If you look at the timber along the side of this pod ( picture below) you will notice one thing very quickly, there are no stress grooves cut into the back of any of the timber, which means eventually it will twist, and that’s bad. Actually its suicide for that particular building. Next i do not see any grading marks of C24 anywhere on any of his production photos, and actually i do not see him say his windows and Trada certified, or that his timber is FSC, or what size glulams he uses. And as there is only one decent glulam mill in the UK, i have a feeling his are not made with certified glulam.

If you want to purchase a quality Camping Pod, and Archleisure this is not the company to purchase from!

I added a page view, just so my old friend Keith could not actually deny that he was selling our designs and decided to rip them off and make a cheap copy of them, but its easy as a customer to find out if this is true just by going to ,waybackwhen, and there all websites copies are held.

Anyway getting back to this pod copying company, which is rather funny actually, as he was so upset when someone stole his arch design, and how everyone was a crook, but when you have very greedy mouths to feed decent Common sense and Chivalry go out the window and greed takes it place.

And the public are fooled into thinking they are buying a quality pod, when in fact they are not, they are buying a copy of a quality Pod! logcabinslv is the best pod maker in the UK and europe thats a fact. everything else on the market is a copy and mostly is crap! If its not manufactured by skilled carpenters, then what your purchasing is not going to last. And no one in the UK can ever get our Northern Siberian Larch Cladding, EVER!!! No matter what they say, they can’t. I have been in the timber business 28 years, and the UK never gets our quality of timber.

So Keith, Mr Archleisure man, who’s website is made up of 90% of my products and you sell inferior to the customers under the guise that they are LV, now the public know.

We do not sell our pods or any items to www.archleisure.co.uk. If you want a pod, and want a company that will actually travel to site, check on how things are coming along, from the first to last day, and will service your pods and help you, and not just earn money by sitting at a desk and expecting everyone else to do the tidying up, then please give us a call or send an email.

logcabinslv.co.uk, the company behind the best pods in the industry, we designed them, the rest just copy!

A pod should be manufactured like this…. I am forgetting……….

PEOPLE WHO COPY DON’T CARE ABOUT QUALITY, JUST YOUR CASH!

Camping Pods are only good if they come from LV Log Cabins....

If timber was so amazing for roofing…………… why then are there no houses with wooden roofs? Easy answer, timber is not waterproof, cracks and splits after a very short time, needs to be treated regularly and this is Cedar Clad, which has a lower amount of tanis than larch,and i still would not use larch ever as a roofing material, its solely for claddings. It’s a pity the people who come up with these ideas actually understood timber…..

Thank you for reading…. Do not make a mistake a buy a copy! Buy a good solid camping pod from the guys that started this revolution, the freedom for campsites, don’t feed the guys who only think about cash….. And trust me, they never come when there’s a problem and blame you for everything when it goes badly wrong.

Camping Pods 2017

camping pods 20171

Camping Pods, or should I say the best camping lodges, in the industry, are definitely manufactured by Log Cabins LV.

Bristol Zoo were absolutely blown away with our product, price and of course our superb quality.

I just thought I would attach a photo of their new experience centre for visitors.

These amazing camping lodges were available from our old dealer Keith.

http://www.archleisure.co.uk/glamping-pods-for-sale.html, he does not sell our pods, he likes to show them off, but he is unable in anyway to purchase them,  he has no connection with us in anyway and only a fool would sell a pod with a wooden roof, and only a fool would stay in one, they are death traps.

Camping pods are notorious for being dark and cramped, where our camping pods, 4m x 4.8, are known for being super spacious and high-end quality.

The internal head height of these super pods is 2.8m, which offers the campers amazing head room, full bathroom, toilet, shower, bunk beds, double bed, and a small kitchenette. These amazing Pod lodges from LV are super spacious and really are the best quality available in the UK.
