Looking for a Log Cabin

Today I decided to write this to help those that want to listen, and believe in the one voice in the industry that really does tell the truth, regardless of sale or no sale.
Many of you are going to be fooled by prices, and this will attract you more than the actual cabin, which is what you are looking for in the first place.
There is no such thing as a cheap log cabin, what there is now is a web full up with cabins that have had their guts cut completely out of them.
So where our roof purlins are 45mm x 225mm, others companies will use 45 mm x 110mm, At the beginning it’s not going to cause too much of a problem, but after a year and your roof will begins to sag and they have gone bankrupt, and left you with false promises of 10 year guarantees, etc, your going to feel sick.

( Put it into a short version, they are selling you the look and not the strength , quality or value )

In 2001, we started selling log cabins into the UK, ( the first) we had to convince the public they were better than cheap, sheds, which they are and always will be, sheds are sadly a waste of money and timber, remember the material most sheds are manufactured from is crap, but if that material was cut a bit thicker, you could manufacture a better building, which would cost only slightly more but last 10 years 15 years longer if treated correctly. Reading terms and conditions is always sensible when sealing with a company whose prices are cheaper than everyone else, as normally you pay and then that’s that! Anyway getting back to 2007/2008 many of the big shed companies started buying from us, cabins, and introducing them to their customer base, we had a happy 3 years, and then every man and his dog started manufacturing cabins and copying most of the designs I had personally done, including the twinskin system and the clock house, but no one was or is as good as us, they are mostly just in it for the money, and when a recession turns up, they go broke, and with that I am bankrupt message goes your deposit, which is why I always say, PAY WITH A CARD!

Sadly the Irish , both sides of the border are deaf to this message, I have no clue why as AIB, and British Banks do not care , sadly they are not in touch with their customer base, just what you owe, and what they lend, if you have money with either they charge you to look after it, it’s disgusting.
Politics is never to be written, but I believe in honesty and justice, also I believe that if a man comes to your house, and take a deposit, and then goes bankrupt, his house, car, land whatever, should be grabbed by the government and sold to reimburse those that were stolen from.

Now in the UK that’s never going to happen, as half of the Millionaires-Billionaires, would be poor men, and the people would be heard, the laws were set to make those of power , more powerful, and the working man to know his place.
And the tradesman who wants to climb up onto the cart of Millionaires must there for play the same game, which is sadly go bankrupt and keep your deposits. Which is what they do. And what happens to them, Zero.

I was watching the news and I saw that the Cargo, Boat Line, P&O ferries sacked 800 staff illegally, and brought in cheap foreign workers, so why don’t we sake P&O ferries from the UK and bring in another boat line that does not break the law, P&O really were not punished. As they put peoples lives at risk by their actions by recruiting a staff of untrained crew, who have no legal right to be in the UK or our waters. Yet the government is weak and sad and just forgets about the British dignity.
So where is this leading, I am highlighting how it is now, how the UK looks at bankruptcy and it’s not the same as it was say 20 years ago. This has a lot to do with our laws, and how WOKE our parliament has become. We have stopped being men, and now we are only a slight shadow of what wer were and our grandfathers were. When there was a wrong we marched on Parliament, Remember the iraq war, WMD’s tony blair and his crew, who are all still sat in parliament, nothing changes regarding breaking the law on bankruptcy because they are all at it themselves.

Thats why I say, PAY BY CARD, then the thieving scoundrels, will be held to account, because the banks hate to lose and will take the merchant holder to court, and they will put them in prison, and they will put the Police on them, so PAY BY CARD.

I know I go on and on,but soon this world has changed, and man’s manners have got lost, greed and dishonesty live at every corner of most of the mouths of most traders in this market, and crap that is sold is just unworthy of the payment you make.

Ready, this is written on a web site, And it’s all crap!

  1.  Special wall logs with double tongue for improved steadiness * all wall logs have double tongue and groove,
  2. Floor boards 21 mm, floor joists 60/80 mm and roof beams with dimensions at least 80/160 mm. Floorboards minimum 28mm and Roof purlins always 45 mm x 220mm, floor joists are normally a bespoke size, depending on insulation wanted by customer. Our customer base is always bespoking.
  3. Windows from glued timber (68 mm system), with double glass and rubber seals (Our Standard)
  4. Tilt/turn hinges from a German manufacturer (Our Standard)
  5. Double doors from laminated timber (cladded from both sides) (Our Standard)
  6. NEW Tirolean joint (only 90 degrees corners are possible in this system) This type of log cut is not strong, it needs a metal rod of quite a large diameter and tightening monthly. Which means you need metal throughout the whole cabin through the walls, which is very costly.
    • We tried this with glulam Larch timber, which is far stiffer and 100X stronger than this timber shown, and it was a massive, costly mistake. It has zero in the way of strength. Plus if you notice the t&G is cut cheaply. Now you might ask yourself why i put this down,

There is a reason for this, its because this company wants you to waste your hard earned money on a New Product, it’s not new, the russians were making there barns in this style 100’s of years ago, then they went to the new way, why because Dovetail joints leak, they have actually no core strength. no I say this for buildings, and if you rod, and dowel and screw the logs together and you use this joint, fine, but the companies that sell this will not go to this length and that why its a con of a joint.

Whats do I know about Joint, look below, and then ask me again.


We can manufacture any kind of joint in the world, the machine we have is so sophisticated that it can make a cup from a 400mm x 400mm piece of Siberian Larch Glulam, or all the purlins for Lidl. Whichever is ordered. As you can see we manufacture lengths of timber possibly none of you could imaging could exist, check out these glulam lengths below…

Yep longggggg…

Anyway I have completely forgotten what I was talking about, trust, credit cards, going bust, running off with your credit cards, distrusting people who write rubbish.

I have people on a daily basis thank me for this blog as it puts the true light into the business, so my lasting thoughts to you from me, on this Sunday night are these, 99.9% of all the companies have been bust at least once, they all cut down the safety features of their cabins, in other words, same cabins in looks only half of the timber is used to manufacturing it now. Windows and doors, may look like my new ones, but none of them are, and as the founding father of this log cabin industry in the UK an Ireland I would say very confidently that no one has given more thought of designs, higher standards of build quality, and has kept prices as low as we have and 99% of all companies selling cabins in the UK are not worth even half of what they’re advertised for. When we first started manufacturing here in the Baltics it took us about four years to actually get everyone to understand the level we needed for the UK market and still we have to push each and every day to keep that level high. Otherwise the market from outside would be a mess there are companies that manufacture log Cabins and Timber Frame buildings that are absolutely rubbish and not even worth looking at but how do you tell ( Mr Customer) when every 3D image or 3-D video looks the same as everyone else’s, So you run to the show site where the best of the best cabins they have ever made are on display. It is never a good idea to go to a show site and get your head filled up with their lies, its always best to speak to one of their customers, and ask them how it all went, or maybe 5 customers or 10, this way you will have a honest review on who and what they pretend to be.

We have been here from the beginning, and honestly speaking 99% of this industry is full of conmen!


What is good Timber and what is Bad Timber.by Karl..

Many of you know what is good and bad, if its not black/ blue stained and looks ok, to most thats how they judge the quality of timber.

To other people, we look at how its planned and cut, treated and notched.
So heres a small lesson.

This is Russian, Quality Timber.

Russian Quality Winter Cut Timber.

Then there is Baltic Cut Timber, most companies use this if they are manufacturing bulk cabins, as its cheap, and honestly, nasty,

As you can see the difference immediately.

99.9% of people use this timber to manufacturer their sheds, cabins etc from, why , cost, the cost to you is high to them low, the longevity of the manufactured item months not years.

So when your picking a log cabin be smart….. Your money was hard to come by, spend it wisely. In the land of sheds and cabins , lies are told more than truths.

Fact Winter Cut timber is the best!
Fact we only use winter Cut timber.
Fact buy direct saves you 1000’s and you get the best quality their is to have.
And lastly, if you want the best, come to the company that designed 99.9% of all cabins in the market to date.
We invented the twinskin system, and were the first to manufature, market and sell.
The clockhouse, the aurora, coin phrased the term garden office for a 4m x 5m log cabin, and so much more.

We are the longest running company in the cabin industry, and we are proud to say we have made this industry what it is today, by always pushing harder and harder.

Doors and Windows our design, now everyone is copying.

We designed over many years a new set of windows and doors, and how they were to work, they working part has not been copied, but the design has.

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.

What is factory cabins, and who is factory cabins.

“A NEW BEGINNING TO THIS INDUSTRY”

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!

Kate Log Cabin – 3.5 m x 5.6 m

Kate Log Cabin – 3.5 m x 5.6 m is without doubt the best 44mm log cabin that gives you so much outside covered space which is airy and a great place to relax in the summer out of the sun, and to keep all your deck chairs , seats, tables, etc, safe and locked up, and on those rainy days read a book or just chill.

And all for such a ridiculously low price, please ask us for details on pricing if you are a dealer. we are not public orientated,.

Sadly unlike most companies that sell directly to the end user and to dealers, we do not, we respect our customers (dealers) and their hard work, dedication, and we believe in local dealer networks, servicing the public.

The reason most companies and if you look about you will notice that only we do not display pricing, this is because we do not want to use our dealers to get the brand name out there, then undercut our hard working dealers and take the business ourselves, this is what we call in the business, the LLE ( Lithuanian, Latvian ,Estonian way!) Not good for business, and shows deceit on every level of business. But if you have no business ethics from the start, and money is your driving force, then what can you expect. which explains why we remain when others die and wither away.

The Kate Log Cabin is offered as all our BL range of quality tight grained Scots Pine cabins with normal quality windows and doors or our heavy duty log cabin windows and doors, that also can come painted or lacquered. Depends really what your customer wants and needs.

Quality Log Cabins at sensible pricing, please ask us for pricing, it will knock you off your feet, and also you will be asking your current supplier why they have been overcharging you for so long. Please ask Ash for our pricing at ash@logcabinslv.co.uk

Thank you very much for reading this.

quality log cabins and timber buildings from log cabins lv

quality windows and doors from lv log cabins

Deluxe Log Cabins 2016   13

Also and this is very important!

In addition, if you look at the hinges on the doors you will notice that the quality of these doors hinges are extremely high, possibly the best in the industry, actually they are , “As these come standard, no upgrade needed”.

Most companies will offer better quality windows and doors, but here is the catch, they cost a staggering 500 pounds +++ for Residential Doors, and none of them offers insulated plates at the base.

We also Spray Paint Our New Deluxe Windows and Doors to your choice of colour!!!

 

We even go further to offer as standard an oak threshold at the base of all our doors for longevity and as these doors are all manufactured on the latest CNC machines they are fully water tight and extremely resilient to mother nature, also to those lazy feet that like to scuff thresholds!

Our New Range Of Deluxe Log Cabins for 2016 will not just be the best Log Cabin range on the market, the range of new Deluxe Log Cabins will encompass the under 2.5m permitted building regulation, and also our iconic cabins such as the Original 5.5m x 4m Clock House with its 8 windows and double doors, now available with the only tilt and turn double glazed CE approved windows and doors.

The New Deluxe Range of Log Cabins for 2016 will be offered in 44 mm, 58 mm,70 mm and 90 mm Thicknesses.

From Excellent Northern Siberian Spruce Logs.

Unlike many companies, we will not be using the cheaper, softer, younger Pine.

Our Frames on both our Windows and Doors are designed to be water tight are sculpted and fabricated to be super strong, but most of all they are designed to be of Residential quality. Residential quality windows and doors are not designed to be played with, they are manufactured by skilled carpenters that know what’s what and know how to make a door last the test of time, they are put together to be the best they can possibly be, the argon filled CE approved double glazed panes are mastitic into the framework so that leaking through the frames is never an issue.

 

This is done by only skilled craftsman, it is not something Joe Blog Public should ever attempt to do!

Which is why we are absolutely dumbfounded how companies in the UK ask customers to replace single sheet cheap glazing with double glazed units to upgrade their cheap framed windows and doors.? ( Window frames are also part of the U Value, so a cheap frame with double glazing added is still a cheap window)  Hello? It actually tells us a lot about that company! I think cheap and cheerful comes to mind! But sadly the cheap upgrade is not so cheap, the fix is not so good, and the cabins windows and doors are not much quality!

I hate harping on about windows and doors and how most companies just offer rubbish, and that the longevity is really depending on the windows and doors to how long your log cabin will last the test of time!

I have been in this industry longer than 99.999% of people, I have seen people come and go. I have seen companies here one day and gone the next; I have seen sadly many people ripped off with not just awful log cabins, but absolute Crap.

I have personally been on a crusade to offer extremely original quality log cabin designs, at the lowest prices possible, sometimes its hard getting the best quality to the public at the right price, as there are so many companies that offer a lower grade log cabins that look identical to our designs, which confuses the public, and most people do not understand the difference in manufacturing quality, only price, and price should not be the only determining factor when it comes to purchasing a Large Heavy Log Building. You must first think about raw materials and the wasting of it, you should also think about structural integrity and lastly price….

As we say, buy cheap buy twice….

Remember these are the Best Standard Log Cabins on the Market!!

 

Please look out for the New Deluxe Range of Log Cabins, coming in 2016!!!
