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.
Hi everyone, OK, just a quick Note, so when you ask you will not be upset by my answer.
You want plans, photos and you can not even give me your phone number, well you know what I am going to say. I have so many stupid people call me and tell me they are going to build a camping site, and please can they have our in depth technical drawings of our amazing high quality top of the line camping pods, or our insulated passive housing, what ever, and then they submit that to the council, council say yes because the quality is so exceptionally high, also with safety at the forefront , and the product we offer does not look like a load of chicken sheds on a hill side of natural beauty, and then once the council looks at us they say yes, and then the Holiday Camping site Entrepreneur buys cheap crap, and saves himself 1000’s and puts all your lives at risk.
So we now say no, and no its going to stay, so if your calling me for a plan, it will cost you now a few pennies and you must offer a land line and mobile number. otherwise buy the crap from someone else.
Heres an example of a company that lies and cheats.
This joke of a company do not have my permission to sell my cabins, or use my images, but, Skinner Sheds are a law to themselves. but check out their pricing and they want to sell you a second hand cabin for £2000 more than a new one from us.
Skinners, again stealing our drawings, art work, design, and then over pricing you by ££££££££££££££££££ and its an ex display model! 11.879.00 for a second hand building. Wow, and his windows and doors are shocking, plus ex display means, shrinkage, water damage and stains. all equals, Rubbish for that price.
Yep, this is ours, ours alone, Skinners stole the art work as I said, and he is trying to steal from you £2000 plus with his price, however our cabin to you will have will have amazing windows and doors, his are sadly shed quality, his customer service is like talking to HSBC, and to top it off, his timber is Baltic, he purchases his cabins from a very good high volume mill, but it is a bulk mill, nothing fancy, nothing to write home about. The owner , cool dude, and he makes lots and lots of cabins, who he sells to everyone. Everywhere.
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
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.
EX WORKS!!!!! IT SHOULD HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY!!!!!
Simple Factory Cabins is in essence www.logcabins.lv, www.logcabinslv.co.uk, ,www.logcabinssussex.co.uk but now we are more than a designer / manufacturer/ dealer, we are now a group of mills coming together, and offering on one site, our products without using the middle man.
“Just a quick note, if you all knew me, and understood my passion for this industry and how i like to make sure that your cabin, pod, house, what ever is not just the best , but it really is the best all of you would only buy from me, because i really do produce the best log cabins and timber buildings at the most sensible pricing for the quality in the World! Now i have had a long hard road and battle with my dealers over the years to not be greedy, and only a very small few listened to me, and these girls and guys i have kept and they do my bigger builds, and assembly etc, because I respect their family values, everyone who knows me knows i hate liars, crooks and thieves, the public must be treated like family, i always say this, then the dealer spoils everything by spending his profit before he has the cabin delivered, or even ordered, and then problems, and as the recession comes closer and closer i am looking at the market and i can see who is not to be trusted, if they say they can not deliver and please pick it up, it means they are getting rid of drivers, which means money is tight, and their overheads are too high, everyone who has my cabins, pods, timber frame, what ever, sauna barrels, hot tubs etc, and i really love my timber frame houses, as i love to design and i love to get phone calls with people screaming down the phone in delight with their new house, cabin, or pods and telling me how amazing they are, that makes my life worth living, yes money helps, but in life her-his family is the strength , not how much we have in our pocket which is why everyone is treated fairly and like family. and that’s why our quality is amazing, if you are looking for a high quality, low priced log cabin , camping pod, laminated cabin or a timber frame house, please speak to me” EX Works Pricing is the New Beginning, make a massive saving with a phone call”.
So how does it work, Simple, we, sell everything EX Works Lithuania. I was told off today for swearing, sorry Mr Customer, but the British have been ripped off so badly by their so called friendly neighborhood dealers for years, and the amounts you pay for your cabins now, are sadly grand theft in every way, and when you start comparing our low low, low, low prices that will eventually cover Factory Cabins from top to Bottom, our pricing will shock you. Many unscrupulous companies have stolen our DF range imagery and added them to their websites, do not be conned.. Please tell us who they are.
So why have we done this, well it’s simple, we the mills this time round will make sure that no customer loses his/her money when the recession does actually hit us in a few short months, which it will, ( be sure of that) if you look at how many companies in 2007 went bust, and then restarted and owed customers money, and are now under new trade names and trading now, you would be even more shocked, and they are sadly the leading brands, Even us the mills were owed 100.s of thousands, it was then after 2007 that we all stopped giving credit the UK dealers in full. There was no more factoring with banks etc. Sadly the UK dealers destroyed the trust of banks and mills alike.
How many of the companies in the UK went bust in 2007, it’s a long time ago, but to me it was like yesterday, and our dealers were ordering lots and lots of cabins, and then ” whoops” our dealers then said they could not pay their invoices,” surprise’ surprise” which is what always happens when you give credit or trust someone ,even with contracts in place etc, especially in this market, as its fickle and most UK companies have huge over heads, and go bust very very quickly when the customers stop coming in, and the next thing you know, your told sorry, we have gone bust and speak to the bank, the bank say sorry and you lose your money.
Sadly in the UK going bankrupt and restarting again is too easy, but you the customer, are left high and dry, and i saw this before in 2007, and i helped personally many customers get their money back and their cabins delivered.
Also the market slowed down to a crawl because the dealers were upping their prices to try and stay afloat, to pay their Garden Centre rent and staff, and eventually they went bust, and customers lost their deposits and cabins and dreams.
So why have we decided to go ex works, simple, we will not let our hard work be spoiled by greedy individuals who have lived the high life and think that you the customer would never buy, purchase a cabin ex works, they think you the customer will only buy from them, because you trust them, they are after all local, they know your area, and they are British and you trust them. Well! I am British and you can trust me, and i can honestly say the prices in the UK will come down, to my level, and quality and cost will be on par, i do not sell crap, unlike 90% of the companies out there. And if you want to buy a fucking quality cabin and save 1000’s of pounds, have it delivered to your door, assembled and given a guarantee that actually means something, then Factory Cabins .co.uk is the number one company to speak to.
We will week , by week start to bring more and more different designs to the site, timber frame, Laminated cabins, Pods and so much more. and all EX WORK LITHUANIA.
Remember we started this industry in 2001, first cabins came from us, website was www.sourcingtimber.com. I am the only Britt in Lithuania in this industry and there is a reason for this, its because i love this industry and i love the people i work with and have done for more than 20 years, i trust my fellow workers and designers and staff, and i think that its about time everyone got a fair crack at the EX WORKS PRICE, .
This is not going to make me popular, I know, but who gives a fuck, I DON’T…. And a man who does not swear, well, he must be very gentle, and we do not need gentle people, cutting trees, moulding logs and making cabins, we need men.

There may be a lot of people with our images with LV attached to them, please ask us, who is who, We do not supply anyone in the South East of England, no one! So no to Bexhill, Hastings, Eastbourne, or Kent, if you find a company that is based in these areas using our images, and product name be aware of fraud, if they need to steal from us, they will steal from you!
Over the years we have at logcabinslv.co.uk designed some incredible log cabins, timber frame buildings and glulam log cabins, our designs have helped the industry turn from the Blockhaus German designs to a more aesthetically modern European Design. With over 3000 designs and so many more coming you are spoilt for choice when you enter logcabinslv.co.uk. We are always designing new and innovative cabins, timber frame buildings, glulam cabins.big and small.
Here are a few photos of some of the machines we use to manufacture our different types of cabins, timber buildings, sectional timber frame, laminated timber log cabins, solid log cabins, log cabin windows and doors, also residential windows and doors.
We believe in using the latest machinery, which means that our products are the best they can be every time, giving the end user a marvellous product at a fantastic price!
As I am sure a few of you remembered the 120mm glulam sports pavilion we built last month, here are so amazing internal photos. What you should notice is the thickness of the purlins, central and each side, also the weight bearing purlins running down the middle from back to front. As you will notice these are completely an over kill in size, but we believe in always manufacturing our glulam log cabins to be ready for all things mother nature may think to bruise or batter them!
Glulam cabins from logcabinslv.co.uk are not just quality, they also come with a remarkable price tag, our bespoke windows and doors and all manufactured on our Weinig new window and door line. The quality of our windows and doors is amazing. Bespoke Sizes available, also we offer a full bespoke glulam design log cabins survice.
How many companies on the net actually show their windows and doors in their full glory, I can answer that, NONE! Why? Because most of the companies on the web offering cabins have low quality windows and doors!
Over the years we have put more attention on our window and door production line, than trying to pump more of the same out the door as 99.9% of companies seem to do!
I know this is a scathing attack on the competition, but we actually don’t have competition where our cabins are concerned, we are not a cash and carry manufacturer, we do not manufacture hundreds of the same cabin style in the winter and push them out the door in the summer, all of our cabins are bespoke to order. If you are looking for a quality cabin at a very reasonable price logcabinslv.co.uk have what you are looking for.Logcabins.lv has the largest selection of log cabins on the market to date.
We are the only manufacturer able to offer, laminated log cabins, scandinavian log cabins, timber frame buildings, round log cabins, camping pods, saunas, gazebos, summer houses, Micro Housing, and so very much more.
Over the last few days, our partners in the UK, and Ireland have been asked what is the difference between a Logcabins.lv Log Cabin, and a Logcabins.lv Interlocking Shed.
I thought I would write a quick Blog on the difference between the two.
The Log Cabin which is sold by many in the UK is a design that originates from Europe. Yep the dreaded EU!
The First large company to mass produce LOG CABINS was a company called Mc Garden from Germany.
Their production was around 7000 buildings a month. Their sole output was to Germany, and the rejects were then sold on to Britain and other countries.
When companies in the UK, mainly shed-manufacturers and sellers, saw how popular log cabins were becoming, then every man and his dog, started importing them and selling them. Also we have small home grown companies buying in the machinery and trying to produce log cabins themselves.
So we all shout hurray ! We have Log Cabins! But really you do not! What you have is a mess, a lot of the same, being manufactured by the same like minded people, and sold at the same pricing level! Basically we have the same rubbish being manufactured, or imported by 99.9% of cabin, log cabin sellers in the UK.
Sound’S a bit harsh? Well sorry but it’s sadly the truth.
Please go to Google and type in log cabins, or garden cabins, or something similar and what you will see is the same of the same, site after website, all of them saying they only use FSC timber, but the designs, yep starts to make you yawn!
So our once beautiful gardens are now beginning to take on a european look, this is not all bad, as the Europeans, especially the Swiss ( I know they are not in the EU) design, and craft amazing looking cabins, as do the Latvians, Lithuanians and Slovakians and of course not forgetting the Finnish and Swedish! But in general the design of a log cabin has been kept the same because of production costs and the like.
So!! Garden Log Cabins designs stem mostly from a high output, cost cutting and profit.
As everyone knows we have the most amount of log cabin designs on the globe, more to follow, but! the most important part of our designs is that they are unique, to us, Sadly though they are always copied by the half wit’s of the industry.
OK..So we thought it would be good, to offer in a stronger, more solid fashioned material (Timber )the basic, original Garden Shed design, take the garden back to looking amazing, with out high prices.Keeping the UK Original Shed designs alive!
So our New Interlocking Sheds, which are unique to us, manufactured from 28mm spruce FSC logs.
If you are looking for a quality shed, that has English Heritage , then our new interlocking sheds are with out doubt British Designed And Quality Made!
Please follow this link to see our huge range of interlocking sheds
I thought I would chat a little about Timber sheds!
Timber Sheds-Panel Buildings- Tough Garden Sheds- Robust Garden Sheds- Quality Garden sheds and so on, but all in all they are Sheds!
How is a normal shed manufactured, this is a typical construction type.
All Framing & Cladding is fully Pressure Treated
O.S.B Roof & Floor Included
Diagonal Supports for added strength
Safety Plastic for Windows
High Quality Green Mineral Felt
Complete with Screws & Fixings
12mm T&G Shiplap Cladding
50mm x 25mm Framing
11mm O.S.B Floor and Roof
So lets start at the beginning!
Fully pressure treated, why does your shed need to be fully treaded, the answer for this is quite simple, the building materials used is so thin it would rot with in a year, so chemicals are needed to stop this!
OSB flooring, this is done also for cost, Keeping Costs low and Earning massive profits!
Diagonal Supports for added strength, why does a shed need added strength? It’s an easy one to answer, the thin framework is so poor, and inadequate they must reinforce it!
Safety is paramount, so plastic in the windows/ doors for a building, which might fall down, is a great idea!
Most Shed’s are clad in a mere 12mm shiplap, this material comes from the second cut of the log, which means that it will have a huge amount of knots running down the plank!
This material is normally made into eco pellets for burning for the local community in the log cabin industry, however in the shed industry, this substandard material is used for manufacturing Quality Sheds! All pun intended.
New for 2014 we will have a new Log Cabin Shed Range! Starting with 28mm shed wall thickness, and 19mm floor and roof! Available with opening and none opening windows, and quality solid doors.
The Number one in the World for quality log cabins – timber frame buildings and now Interlocking sheds! New for 2014…
We have more partners world wide selling our unique log cabin brand than any other manufacturer.
Very soon, we have a very wide but incredibly interesting range of new Interlocking Sheds ( only from logcabinslv.co.uk). All our designs are a heritage example of UK sheds through 100 years, manufactured from 28mm interlocking water tight T&G timber, ALSO available in solid 40mm.
Over the years we have offered thousands of different designed cabins, but we feel it is very important to start offering traditional shed like buildings, logcabin sheds to the market.
We will have on Offer, Pent roof interlocking sheds, Apex roof styles and many more.
If you are looking for a quality little shed, and are fed up with buying the same old cheap nasty shed from down the road that last just 2 years and leaks every time there is a drizzle, then please consider looking at our new range of Interlocking Sheds for 2014.
Logcabins.lv, the number one in shed ( log cabin) designs!
This article is about Cheap Log Cabins and the misery they cause.
When looking for a Log Cabin-Timber Shed- Wooden Cabin for your Garden, you need to be very careful what you buy.
If your looking for a cheap shed to put your lawn mower away, and you’re not too concerned about quality then there are so many companies offering Cheap! But Cheap means Cheap!
Logcabins.lv has the largest range of Quality Clock House Log cabin designs in the World!
If you see a Clock House Log Cabin in 44mm and it is being offered for under 3000 Pounds-Euros, then be prepared for problems. A quality Clock House will offer double purlins, a cheap one offers you single purlins, this will mean on the single purlin clock house you must expect the roof to bow in in the middle after a few years, a quality Clock House Log Cabin will also offer very heavy windows and doors. A Clock House for instance has 8 double glazed windows , and a double glazed double door, 4 windows and the double doors are placed all in the front wall, this makes the wall weak, as there is very little timber holding them in place. We are the original designers of the clock house log cabin, we understood the problems this cabin could have, and designed ours to be incredibly strong in areas that could cause problems years down the line. Sadly so many customers know very little about the build process, or the designing that goes into such a timber structure. We also offer 28mm flooring in all our cabins, all cheap manufactures will offer this as an up grade. Also our windows are VERY HEAVY, as the glass is 24mm argon filed and the windows all tilt and turn from 44mm and upwards. We also offer double glazing in our 34mm cabin, this is economy none the less its double glazing, where most if not all manufacturers will offer this to you as an upgrade.
We would recommend that you think very carefully before buying any cheap cabin!
Cheap Cabins cause misery to thousands of people yearly do not be caught out or enticed to buy rubbish, you will regret it…
When looking to buy a log cabin please look at the reviews of the said company you want to purchase it from, Google is great at giving all the info you need, have a look for complaint forums and read what people say, 2 great reviews can not cover up a 100 bad!
If you would like some help please do not hesitate to ask one of our Partners. or send us an email direct.
