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

Carrying on from yesterdays Blog I have a
few facts that might be of interest to you that care as I do about this industry
and about quality/pricing and raw materials.
And Why the Log Cabin market will move away from the Baltic’s in the coming years completely. And why it is a very sensible choice to buy your Log cabins from LV..
Firstly, because we care about the forests,
we care about your customer, we care about you and we understand that making a
profit is essential.
Here are some facts about what is happening
in the Baltic countries, and this will shock you.
Last year, IKEA bought a total of
72,000 hectares of forests in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Romania for at
least 115 mln euros, this is from an article Bloomberg has done research on, then
said with reference to Sweden’s farmer daily ATL.
IKEA did not elaborate on the share of
forests purchased by the Swedish concern in Lithuania and the sum paid for the
holdings in Lithuania.
IKEA’s subsidiary IRI
Investments last summer purchased 33,600 hectares of forest in Romania,
becoming the largest forest owner in this country. According to Romania Insider
portal, the sum of the deal was EUR 50 mln. Thus, the estimates suggest that
forests for EUR 65 mln have been purchased in the Baltic States, Verslo Zinios
ATL said that IKEA plans to
continue purchase of forests in order to reduce dependence on fluctuation of
Also we must not forget that in the Baltic
States there are rumors, because the governments from each state will not put
on record how much forest is replanted, but in 2012 there was a survey done by
Yale university that Lithuania (its where I am so I care about this country a
little more than the other Baltic states) but none the less I care very much
So Lithuania in 2012 got the best score for
being Super Green, now we are 84th on the list of countries that
manage forest well!
I have added a few photos of how sadly deforestation is happening at an alarming rate.
This Photo shows one of the oldest massive forests in Lithuania in 2005/ 2006
The same massive forest in 2018/2019…….. GONE……………… This is not how you harvest a forest… And why is it now fields?
This is not the way to cut forest, and if you are truly a company that cares about where your log cabin timber comes from , and how it is sourced, then a rethink of your supplier is seriously needed. Just because you see FSC you think its ok, its not!
Tomorrow I will try and show how forest management in other countries really work, and how other countries understand the necessity of replanting . Sadly some countries fall foul to greed not ECO management. Also there should be limits on how many cubic meters of timber companies can cut each year! Also if they are bragging that they only use FSC then they should be made to replant immediately. Not 4/5/6 years later. And to replant 2 trees for every one they cut.
Forests are not just a resource for log cabins, timber buildings etc, they also help the Ecosystem, for example, flowers, birds and all wild life, Deer, Boar, foxes, mushrooms, berries, so much , yet as you can see by these first photos i have shown, the ECOsystem is completely destroyed. And yes our Team care, which is why we are moving our full production of manufacturing of our cabins to another country that one has better timber, two cares about its timber resources and three replants more than anyone else. Last year alone 145.000 hectares.
We hope you join us and not buy or overpay for cabins that are manufactured from timber that should never ever have been allowed to be felled.

Specialists in Glulam production
Over the years I have spoken relentlessly about quality timber frame buildings, and how it is so very, very important to have grading of the highest caliber on timber which is destined for the manufacturing of Park Homes, Timber Frame Residential Buildings and the like, also that these kind of structures must be strong on there own merit and not part of a whole. Here you can see panels, floating in the air, which shows our true belief in our panel construction and the quality of build.
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!

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!
