Timber, Cabins and very Big Lies.

TwinSkin Log Cabins are without doubt, without doubt the best way of having a very large insulated structure and are still cheaper than Sips and Timber Frame.

So why do think my twin skins are better, simple, i was the first to ever make one, design them and manufacture and offer to market, and over the years where others that have copied my design have not moved on, i have, i make them better than anyone else, I fit them out with superb windows and doors, and lastly I make sure that my build crews in the UK and Ireland know what they are doing.

Now let’s look at the competition, because if your smart your going to look around and find out what’s what and who’s who, so the first thing to do is make sure the timber is Belarusian or even Better Russian, not quick grown Splitting Baltic Pine or Spruce, Imedeska uses Baltic as do 90% of mills, sadly in the UK your timber industry like gas and other industries have started to fade and fade away, which is sad, but Inevitable, you have given Russia so many sanctions and bit the hand that fed you so often you are now in quicksand, slowly sinking, I think Boris will stop working with the EU on many fronts soon, and make ties, make peace, with Putin, and understand he is not our enemy, don’t listen to any of the left wing bullshit they tell you about him, its all crap.

Russia has without doubt the best timber in the world, forget canada, they mostly have douglas fir and Cedar, which is not particularly good for cabins, Russia Red and White is what you need your cabin manufactured from, and that’s where we come in, unlike most in the world, our timber is Russian, which is why the pine is so Red, it’s tough amazing timber that is perfect for cabins, and it’s all I want to manufacture from.

So many mills like Dunster will say Russian this and Russian that, Blar Blar Blar. Estonian, Baltic Spruce , Pine.

Why am I so mad on Pine, simple it soaks up the treatment quickly and deeply, spruce does not!

Hope you enjoyed that…… And learnt something.

The Log Cabin Clock House

My amazing Clock House 4.8m x 3.6m is possibly one of the most sold log cabins in the industry, comes in so many different sizes now, but tonight let’s talk about this amazing , wonderful, aesthetic design, and how i Kevin Langham designed this cabin, and 7000 others and put it to my dealerships throughout europe and the UK, and how it has changed from being a super, quality log cabin , to the pile of shit that is now sold to you the customer, it has been butchered by every company, no strength in the roof, no quality of build and absolutely not worth 1/3 of what any company is asking for them from you. I have seem my cabins butchered by everyone, there is no pride left in this industry, it’s all about demand and bulk.

And you the public are driving this madness by demanding them now , now , now.

And what you buy is last years stock, that’s had 10 buildings packed on top of yours, that are old, that are quickly and cheaply manufactured, AND REALLLLLLLLY OVER PRICED!!!

And if a company is telling you to wait 12 weeks, they are getting ready to go bust and steal your deposits. In 2008 they all did the same, and i will never forget how many people called us and asked us where the dealerships had gone with their deposits. that’s why this time round we have got rid of all the dealers, you just never know who can be trusted and who you can not!

This is the first ever Clock House Log Cabin, it was designed by an elderly Royal Marines officer. We assembled this beautiful building in his garden and decorated it with a pot belly stove, and some very comfortable seating, table etc, and it was his personal little cute hide away.

He sent me the design and I had a very long look at it, and i thought, amazing, and that it would sell well, but the problem with it was, the amount of light was miserable, it was dark, way too dark, it felt claustrophobic, and the dorma looked too big. We built his and then, I sat down and thought.

So I sat down and figured out over about 3 months what would be the best size and how to manufacture this cabin making sure it was ethically viable for the amount of timber to be used, to use the off cuts and and and, and i came up with 5.5m x 4m where 4 windows fitted on the front, with a tall double door and two windows left and right. all tilt and turn. Double glazed.

And here is a pic of the first one…

And here you are, the first , ever, ever, ever 5.5 m x 4.0m and I still think apart from my sunshine range, this is one of the best log cabins ever designed. it fits all purposes. And I amproud to stamp my name to it.

Some one asked me the other day who am I!

Easy I am the start, I am the middle my sons, son, son will possibly be the next Langham, to design more and more buildings from materials we have not even invented yet, but trust me when I say the Langham name is the name that brought Log Cabins to the UK, not garden buildings Direct, Waltons, Dunster House or any of the said mentioned, it was Kevin Langham, and I was too stupid to understand that i should have sold them direct to the customers and not to dealers, who have over the last 21 years upped the prices, lowered the quality and completely destroyed the ethos of what i started, I had someone ask me who I was, and i said I had designed a few buildings, what i wanted to say was, without me 99.9 % of designs on most websites of cabins would not be around, ( like clock house) ……. and also who invented the twinskin system, yes ME!

The twinskin interlocking building system came to me when i saw a skilled craftsman put two walls together , one cabin inside another, and use spacers, and then add insulation, i then had an Eureka moment, and I went to our production production master, and told him what i wanted to do, everyone thought i was crazy, honestly, bat sh-t mad! But i pushed on and now 30% of all cabins are twin skin, thanks to a Langham!

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.

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.
