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..
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.
Hi everyone, this whole virus routine is back again, I HEAR YOU ALL SCREAMING YOUR THOUGHTS AT ME, AND TO ALL, Yeah I KNOW, but the only help I can offer is a place of silence, warmth, and zero drama, amazing value and working from home is amazing actually, depends or for some not so, rolling out of bed, getting dressed in something super comfy, forget the rushing for trains, or driving in traffic, loud noises, smelly uncomfortable tube rides, and the real focusing on your work blown by getting into a bad mood before your even behind your desk to work, I hated the rain and getting wet, getting to work finding my spot gone to park and then running in the rain to the lobby and then remembering the security card to get into the office I had left in the car, and many of us have been through this, and then wanting, needing a garden office, you need space for and wanting it now, then you go on line and you see prices from 3000 pounds for a shed thats only fit for a lawn mower, to 80.000 pounds thats honestly worth 20.000 pounds, you need honesty, you need a office that honestly will be exactly what you need and no messing. around.
So what do you do? OK, you firstly call 100’s of companies selling cabins, and they all say the same crap, cabins last over 10 years, 44mm is perfect, or go to a 90mm glulam as its perfect, but costs a lot more, then you ask how long they say 20 to 25 weeks, and then payment, which is always the sore subject, the red ball that bounces round the room and he says, oh! its X and please pay to this account, and and and.
OK! Let’s rewind, firstly we have lots and lots of different cabins, which are built from timber frame or machined log, and I would guarantee not one of them really honestly suits your needs, which is why nearly 99.9% of our cabins are altered in some way or other. most companies cut Twinskin log cabin cavities at 57mm because thats the CNC optimal cutting in which the log will not super vibrate and snap off. I know this because i was the first person to design, manufacture and sell a Twin Skin, and ours cavities are wider, and not just because of structural reasons, A twin skin 5.7m x 5.7m in 70mm with 100mm gap, is what i would always say the perfect garden office.
Most sales guys in this industry have no idea on this subject, when you buy from us you are travelling on a quick conveyer belt to an easy solution to get your cabin, because dealing direct means sensible pricing, and a quick turn around, we can make everything happen, and quickly.
Dark Cloud subject….The year before last we got rid of so many of our resellers, dealers, because we found that most not all stole from customers, either in over pricing or literally stealing, and we at LV and FC believe in our Brand which is the best in log cabins industry, we have been working hard to keep standards high and to make the market a better safer place and better looking windows and doors, better made and last longer, our standard windows and doors now are just over the top with quality, and i am so proud that we designed them, and brought them to the table, we never sit down, sorry to get back to the topic, also their skills at selling was awful they forgot what was important, most are overwhelmed at the amount of business there is, and what they should and must tell the customer, and we train them, spending hours on each Reseller, and allowing them. to use our content to show the customer what they are getting, but we have decided to stop with resellers after 2023, we have a few resellers left, but they are true craftsman and know their, our product.
So we were discussing pricing,…
Let’s talk about pricing. We would push you to Pay Us with a Credit Card, why you are asking…well because you are safe, we want you to understand that no matter who you pay, and who you buy a cabin from make sure when buying a log cabin in the UK, or Europe, Credit Card. deposit, credit card, last payment, credit card, if the company asks you to pay direct into the bank, avoid them. if they do not have the ability to accept cards, it does not mean. they are a bad company but it does mean your protection is gone..
We tell our resellers that we are very happy when they get their customers to pay by card, we feel its a must, not all agree with us, and we can not force them.
Today we have a problem, timber prices, gas prices, fuel prices could and do rise in an instant, and if a company, reseller sells you a cabin, and does not order it from us till the end of the month or following and has not asked us for a price, and this kind practice, it done by many Log Cabin companies, sadly its common in the UK, and they do this with their overseas suppliers and mainly it’s because of money transfers etc, and something you to remember is we supply these people with our products only , we do not pay them a salary, they are not linked to us in any other way that they buy our products and resell them. And when they come to order your cabin from us which you paid them for the prices could have risen and if they are not aware of this or have not put this into their pricing structure, then this is where the problems start. They are our customer, you are not. So what we think is right and wrong, legally we have nothing to say to them. Which is why we sell direct, and we have amazing reviews, and we always make sure our customers gets their products. We do not offer anything but the shell, if you want a full turn Key, we can sell you a shell, and then try and help you with local tradesman in your area to do the rest, we would sell you the cabin, and the trades guys you would pay direct, you get a full turn key , office, granny flat , spare room or garage. what ever, but it would be the best. And thats why we say to people buy direct, as we know our prices from month to month, we keep to our pricing, and we never let people down, if they shut the boarders, or close roads, or governments ban trucking, or there is a massive covid outbreak, then sadly we can not do any thing about this, none of us can, but we try our best.
What we have found is that the public do not ask many questions, and they pay and they wait, and thats that, we are very different, as we want the experience to be very interactive with us so our customer feels able to say exactly what they want and how they feel.
But always, always, please pay them with a credit card. It keeps you safe always.
Thank you for reading this…..
Please check out our site and find yourself a garden office that is fully insulated, and straight from the factory.
When I first began telling people about log cabins and the benefits, prices and quality, which was so many years back, oh! 2001, when Dunster House, or people like Waltons and so many of the companies that joined the band wagon, sadly though most for the profit, and hardly any for manufacturing quality. This maybe because 75% of the companies that start selling log cabins really do not see a future in the log cabin industry, they just see, here this year, gone, next, and keep the vat, steal customers deposits and as many as possible and never offer credit card facilities.
If you want to purchase a Log Cabin, and you live in Southern or Northern Ireland, God Help you, one minute your dealer is the gospel speaking saint who knows everything about log cabins, and the next they have disappeared.
What’s super sad, is that you give someone your Company Brand to use because it is the best of the best brand for these particular items, and comes along ( some awful lying tinker) and they have just ran off with loads of cash, you call the Police and no one answers, and customers are looking at us for help, which we want to do, but what can we do if they do not want to pay deposits with credit cards. Time to wake up!
Visa, Master Card, pull them out, ask for a higher insurance base on them, and pay all your deposits that way! Start being smart! Better to pay £100 extra a years and be safe than pay someone through the bank and loose the lot!
Section 75 is an important UK consumer protection law made in the 1970s that means your credit provider must take the same responsibility as the retailer if things go wrong with a purchase. Yet, it doesn’t work on all purchases – just those costing a certain amount:
Pay for something on a credit card £100+ and up to £30,000 and the provider’s equally liable if something goes wrong.
This isn’t the credit provider being nice. It’s a legal protection put in place so that you’re never in the position of paying off debt for something you didn’t receive or wasn’t as it should’ve been. Whether it’s a flight, kitchen, computer or anything else, pay on a credit card, store card or with store instalment credit, and the credit provider’s responsible too.
Imagine it has taken us 20 years to come from obscurity to the number one in design and manufacturing, you design an iconic garden buildings, and show the industry how to insulated a garden log cabin offices, twinskin it etc, and the tinker runs away.
So we are looking awful, and so is your bank balance, not if though you pay your deposit with a credit card.
Then this smiling face comes alone, asks to sell your brand and ( boom) they after 6 months start doing tricky stuff, lying, and not answering the phone, and sending emails to people just lying and lying, , and then, a customer calls and he says he gave money , deposit to the company and he can not get hold of them. what can we say, but call the police. Its theft, and is not a civil matter.
I have said this next part so many times, and i will say it time and time and time again.
PAY WITH A CREDIT CARD, YOU ARE INSURED WITH A CREDIT CARD, USE A CREDIT CARD, AND ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE IN IRELAND. PAY DEPOSITS WITH A CREDIT CARD.
So what happens then, you try and figure out whos who, who can you trust with your Brand, and who can you trust with customers money, and that is truly the hard one.
So we decided 2 years ago only dealers that took payments with credit cards, would sell our cabins, but??? in Ireland, its a problem, the customer does not want to pay with cards, he thinks paying through the bank is safe, well!! Hello everyone , its not, PayPal is safe, GooglePay is safe, Visa is safe, Mastercard is safe, Stripe, etc.
Why do you think high street banks are the best, simple, High Street Banks have hoodwinked you from day one, they are greedy bastards, useless at what they do, make you pay fortunes forever in payback loans and they trash talk everyone who is even better. Remember this when their is a problem, the banks never help, they will take your house from you in a blink, and if you need help they are normally the first to say NO! SEB swedish bank Amazing, Revolut Amazing, and I am sure there are many more smallish banks, but not High Street Banks.
We do not have any cabin dealers at all in Scotland, we sell Direct, so if you are looking for a riveting deal, would like to speak to a few of our customers who have bought direct, then please do not hesitate to give us a call.
I am sorry to say, but our Irish Dealer Leon Vlahovic who is working with our Brand in Southern Ireland, has gone into administration.
Leon found it very hard to deal with the covid, also falling off a ladder, breaking his leg and ankle while out doing an assembly, ( this we found out to be a lie) and sadly the timber prices and the inflation in Ireland, and many other factors, have left Leon unable to continue business.
Leon Vlahovic will not be trading our LV log cabins from now on. As a precaution, we always say this, please do not give this dealer a deposit etc, as he is not now a dealer of log cabins or timber buildings.
Because Leon Vlahovic has not been arrested or found guilty of any crime, all we can only say that (Leon Vlahovic is not an LV Log Cabins dealer) , and please do not hand him over any money.
( we should add that any customer who is selling our brand, when we think something is amiss we tell the public that this certain dealer does not have Our Brand to sell LV, if he sells something and he has committed a crime, we will make a blog about this)
If anyone is looking for Leon, please give us a call , and we are looking for a customer Fergus Roche, If you are Fergus, please please give us a call ASAP. We have now had the Lawyer of Fergus Roche call us, and we have instructed her not to pay any more money, I must say the lawyer was very very rude, We are also happy to Say we found Emma, and Robbie, and have enough info to offer to the authorities.
As a company with over 20 years of selling to different companies log cabins, in many different countries, and actually getting 2 dealers of ours arrested and on TV for scamming customers, we are quite proud that we are very active in helping people and stop the fraud that is very much part of this industry. But I must say I am fed up with explaining to customers to use credit cards as a matter of payment to the dealer. https://www.logcabinslv.co.uk/blog/2021/11/14/cowboys-and-log-cabins/ this is just one of many blogs i have written, but no one listens.
PAY BY CREDIT CARD………………………………..
Now to today after listening to a lawyer, and the disgusting way she spoke to me, and blaming us here at the factory for another company stealing money off a poor customers, and us trying our best to stop this made me realise that something must be said.
When a manufacturer, who sells 100’s of cabins a year, to many different countries all self employed Dealers who all trade under their own company name , who then sell it on to their customers, and yes they can sell it as an LV Log Cabin, in so far as they are telling the customers that its an LV cabin our brand is the best, we have companies telling their clients its an LV when its not, we have customers who steal our images and say LV, if you read this blog you will see many of them, . As our brand its the best, and also has amazing reviews world wide, and as soon as crooked dealer steals off the customer, sadly we are not to blame, and the lawyer knew this today, as the dealer is self employed and he/she was selling to the customer ( Credit Card) , not us, we had no knowledge of this sale if it was or was not sold, if its a bespoke cabin we are then asked by our self employed dealer ( Leon) for a quote from us to price, and that’s that, the only time we get to know a name is if its quoted for, if the trader wants it, we send his company an invoice and everything moves on from there, he then gives to his customer the cabin if he has paid….BUT… If he takes money, and does not buy from us, we do not know, if he does or does not it’s not our concern. but there is more to this, because if the lawyer thinks we are responsible then all the other contractors are too, and our lawyer friend, the lawyer then must go after the all contractors who Leon was going to use to lay the concrete bed,-2000-2500- she must also go after the-3000 to 5000 Kitchen supplier and 2000 bathroom supplier, and everything else Leon promised, 800 Bed supplier, 800 Boiler, electrician, 1500 plumbing guy, 2/3/4000 depending on what is used roofing contractor, and the suppliers of that, as we supply the bare skin shell, Our price for the cabin is a very small part of the actual cost. Which one of our customers Emma has found, we managed to stop her cabin being resold as the time limit was up and storage and mill costs needed to be paid, which was coming to more than 1000 euros, as leon had stored the building and did not pay the trucking company . As a company this is another companies issues, and legally we have no right in law to stick our nose in, but those that know me, know I do. There were many cabins priced, Fergus, Emma , and and and, luckily the one in stock was Emma in Ireland, and she paid the charge Leon owed and got her cabin.
Getting back to a rude lawyer, that woman made me angry, this year i got TV3 in sweden, FSC, Ikea and Parliament together to speak about the deforestation of trees as Ikea was cutting massive lumps of forest and not replanting. And this woman calls me up and speaks to me like I am the bad guy and it’s all my fault. Where the fault lays is that she knows what to do, and that’s going to the clients address and giving him a lift to the Police Station.
Everyone who knows us knows we hate all this kind of disgusting behaviour, fraud, theft, and misinformation.
If someone takes something from you……. and they do not give it to you, its fraud, clear and simple, and its Police Matter, not Lawyer, pay me money!
If the company goes bankrupt, then it’s down to the liquidators to collect from the estate and hand it out evenly.
And what makes me angry, is that she knows what the customer must do, but she then plays I will save the day and hands out large bills for a job she should not be getting involved with, and she knows this, and she knows who to call, but she wants to earn money from a poor old man who had 30.000 stolen from him. Then she starts threatening people. Which is rather counterproductive, as her motives are only self driven. And against a company that will sue her for defamation. And when we went back to her with some history, she was not interested, acted the high and mighty and seriously our company Lawyers child are more polite.
If you live in Dublin and you go to Colins BMW Service, and they sell you a car, you are buying from Colins, not BMW,we give our Self Employed Dealers warranty on this and that we are not giving to the customer, as the customer is not the purchaser to us, the Self Employed Dealer is.
So you all bough your cabins from Straight Solutions Kilkenny R95TPD9 IRELAND, owner Leon Vlahovic of Kilkenny R95TPD9 IRELAND, and all monies and payments were made directly to Leons Vlahovic company Straight Solutions Kilkenny R95TPD9 IRELAND also all sales and communication to do with your building was done from you to Leon Straight Solutions Kilkenny R95TPD9 IRELAND.
Only we at Log Cabins LV are allowed to use the url.LV we do not offer this out to any dealer.
If Leon owes you money, please contact the Police, not a lawyer. Our Lawyer has told us to ask all customers that were dealing with Leon Vlahovic, who was a full Self Employed Dealer of Log Cabins, Timber Buildings, Ground Works and who bought from us only Log Cabins, he also bought from other companies log cabins to make an official complaint. We have been instructed by Leon of Straight Solutions that he would take care of all his clients, we did not have a list, just a few names he threw at us for pricing, which we have tried to find, we found one, and as I said the lawyer was so incredibly rude. And most have come to us. We have asked them all to report this to the correct officials ( that being the police) who do not charge you money. as in most cases the poor customer has lost already enough through lies and deceit.
We helped Pope Concor a few years back in Ireland track down a very very very bad dealer , and get him arrested for selling awful cabins, and just being crooked through and through, as we hate this, and I am sure I will have a discussion with him on this . Also mention how lawyers are profiting from this misery when there is only one course of justice. This rude woman really has put my back up, and she is promising something to someone she can not give, and charging for it.
Leon Vlahovic is working under the guise of Straight Solutions.
If you are looking for a great brand of cabins, and are fed up with dishonest dealers, please come to us direct. +370 6889 3563
Log Cabins LV apologises for the trouble this man has caused, we can only check someone a certain amount, and the rest we must take on face value. Leon seemed like a trustable guy, he was selling cabins before we met him, but he wanted a better product, I think we can all agree on this, but his smile was a lie.
Anyway, that’s enough of that. Pay by card….. Always for anything under £30.000
OK lets firstly look at the pricing aspect of log cabins in the UK, Skinners sheds, or Dunster House or whoever, and there are many who ever’s, their pricing, its changed, and all of them are up 60% but have they added anything of value more to the cabins, the answer to that is no, now sadly the British Public, and I am one of them, think that if it’s too cheap, then its cheap, and if its too high priced, then i can not afford it, but if its middle ground I am going to get something half decent In some industries of sale, that might be true, but in the Log Cabin industry that is not the case even slightly, most cabins from nearly 99,9% of dealers in the UK are the same, baltic pine and super expensive, actually if truth was to be known they are taking the piss out of you and smiling all the way to the bank. So let’s dissect a cabin, what have you got that is worth 1000’s and 1000’s of pounds. Customer service, is as always, in most companies , YUK!
Let’s take this company that are using our images without our consent.
Original pic comes from us, skinners sadly have no skilled staff or vision and must always steal from others what they can not pay for , or design, themselves. Its quite funny actually as this company was once the leading light in the cabin industry, we supplied them for the whole of the south east, then sadly they went to the dark side, and bought crap cheap mass produced cabins and tried and still try and sell them off as ours. Their sales staff lie and say its their design, lol… their pics, etc, and then they ask you for money. (really)… https://www.factorycabins.co.uk/product/log-cabins-oxford-6-5-x-3-5m-df32/ this is the original…..
Oh, and by the way. skinners do not offer windows and doors of any quality, the timber is baltic pine, and on a scale of 1 to 10 they come in at a 3.
This is our unique Log Cabin style,
If you take a close look, you will notice that our cabins against Skinners, Johnsons, Dunster, Quick Garden, Tuin, Waltons and 100% Lugarde are 100% better. Firstly we provide doors and windows that none of these companies mentioned, would ever offer you, if they did their pricing would be through the roof, plus they would need new CNC machines, Blades, skilled workman and Joinery Timber and most importantly have the want to offer better, and not just manufacture Bulk.
Ex works means we help with everything, and you buy direct from Factory!
So why pick us, well, simple, our prices are very very fair considering the quality your getting, Russian Northern Scots Pine, no baltic quick grown lumber in our cabins, we are manufacturing long lasting cabins of quality and distinction, not Ikea furniture.
Sanctuary, that’s what people come to us for, they want peace and quiet, and a room in the garden to get out their Ipad, or Notebook, or just a kindle and read and Chill.and they want it to be part of their lives for years and years, and they want to feel safe, and that mother nature stays out and the warmth stays in, we offer this, in quality, and at a great price. Next, which is really very important, our windows and doors are manufactured from high quality joinery timber, with a moisture content of nearly (2%) they can not be left outside until treated. Sadly mother nature would, hurt them, so it is advised to stain them immediately. Or your fitter does.
This Beautiful little cabin has a shed on the back of it. Would like to give a massive shout out to Lee for his fitting abilities, and love the green carpet! lol.
This beast, Twin 70mm x70mm with a 100 gap, was built by leon, and as always did an amazing job.
If you are looking for quality, then, please give us a shout.
Please Call us and speak to a member of staff that actually understands cabins, pods, timber frame buildings and so very much more. +44 0208 133 5164
Seriously check out this cabin, really check it out, it’s just simply amazing, and it is actually the best of the best to be offered in this cut throat market, most mills will lie and lie, and when you get the product it’s simply awful. But how are you to know any better, simple, look at my REAL photos, the only touch ups is to my belly in some of the photos, But seriously check out the windows and doors, the quality of the timber, the cut, the finish, the presence, the cabin is beautiful.
As soon as I add quality german hinges to my cabins, sadly there are companies that have already copied my hinge design and added black similar chinese very cheap hinges to try and fool you, you can not mistake ours with this rubbish, they forgot to make the windows thicker, they forgot to add a 5 point locking system on their doors and windows and they also forgot to remove the plastic from his windows sills, as we all love plastic , we use quality aluminum to the windows and doors, and if you notice the windows ( opening ones have 2) they also forgot to make the windows and doors from joinery timber, and lastly .
Plus they forgot to add German quality handles, and if you think the first and last part of the cabin you touch is the door handle, it’s important that every part of the cabin is quality.
Black looks awful, cheap and apart from that, the timber used on this cabin is Baltic Pine as it does not have a huge amount of red pigment.
OK thats a look at the low end of the market.
A Factory Cabins LTD High Quality Building.
Welcome to the top end, where the cabins are built to last, they look amazing, and we always leave the site in immaculate condition.
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!
Why do I love my websites, even if they are old and slightly out of date, or my other old LV website that’s simply is just huge and full of all my ideas and the way i have changed in character and personality and taste, simple answer, I love my websites because they are all my ideas, nothing is ripped off from others, apart from words that I use to tell , explain, to help people understand about whatever it is i designed or think is a good or bad Idea., these words are borrowed and i have no clue who invented them, but thanks, the designs you see and look at on all my sites, my blog and where ever, they are part of me, my soul to want to make people’s lives different and for there to be better everything in life for everyone. So many people are sad, angry and just not worth talking to because their anger is poisonous , but i try and I try and make everyone’s life a better place, but perfection is not a log cabin, perfection is us, and how we are able to understand that everyone has their limits, and to live with that without drama and smile at the imperfections as the learnings of others.
And with this heart I manufacture my structures and laugh when just one out of the 1000’s i have designed sell, it means that my thoughts and feeling came through to that one individual and that makes me a happy man!
Imagine, your looking for a quality timber frame building, you want , need it to conform to all the new EU/UK thermal and building regulations, your not exactly spoilt for choice as the UK has zero timber, zero anything actually and everyone want you to pay double, the gas prices are rising, taxes are going up and the stamp duty has returned. Gone are the days of people being helped by the governments, which is why they are now coming to us, The Factory which means you are buying from the factory. We offer unlike 99.9% of Factories in this industry payment by credit card, also we supply the trade with bespoke buildings they can put up themselves and rebrand it if they want, but all in all, most come to us.
What annoys me is this, British People have their nose in the Air, and talk crap about buying their buildings from Lithuania or other baltic countries, they do not have any problems about the poor Brazilian children Picking with their little fingers the coffee green small coffee beans thats failed to roast in the sun, you have no problems swallowing the coffee, or wiping you ass on toilet paper that comes from Germany and other countries , we import more toilet paper than any other EU, ( ok we are out ) but most of you are using german recycled poo paper on your butt every morning, and your going to ask why, simple, you have no forests, and because of that no pulp, which means no paper, so you import 130 million tons of toilet paper in a year.
Has that woken you up a little, because if you also look around you, no matter where you are there are no forests, they were all cut down by labor, and that means you must import it, which means all your timber goes through 6 pairs of hands before you can get it, and thats a-lot of added value to a bit of timber, so coming directly to us it makes common sense for you and your wallet, if you have any prejudice then thats your look out and go and see a shrink, because nearly everything around you comes from somewhere other than the UK, even the rain that fall is no doubt from somewhere else.
So lets talk about timber, because i live on the edge of the largest wood in the world, I can see the beginning of it from my office window, and at night my air into my bedroom is the cleanest in the world, remember the trees are our planets lungs, and we are all about making the best houses using the latest technology and using the best timber with little or no waste.
As you can see our Private Schools are stupidly over manufactured and exquisite to look at, minimalism being the path we pick, as functionality must be added with longevity and quality.
If you are looking for a low footprint, energy efficient, low maintenance building, then , this is what we specialise in. And we don’t just do a good job, we do an amazing one.
Please do not get us confused for any one else, we are www.factorycabins.co.uk, and in the UK there is no one better, actually there is no one who can even come close.
If you are looking for still C24/KD graded timber, from Russia, and quality windows and doors, made on one of the most expensive house C and C lines in the world, then we are the girls and guys to speak to. Imagine this, our line is so fast, it can cut/ screw and fill an 80 sq meter house, from floor to roof in 24 hours, and assemble it in sections, ready to build.
Over many years of manufacturing and design, Factory Cabins has brought to the European Garden Market some amazing quality Log Cabins, Scandinavian Cabins, Interlocking Buildings, Twin Skin Log Cabins, Timber Frame Buildings, Camping Pods and much more.
We always strive to push quality and design first, as great pricing comes from understanding your manufacturing process, and as one of the fore-fathers of log cabins we really understand about how to conserve timber, but never allowing that to effect safety of design.
Our CEO and the designer behind the Clock house Log Cabin, the Twin Skin Log Cabin System and so many other recognized log cabins on the market believes that quality should always be in the forefront of manufacturing.
As you will notice all our photos, images are watermarked with our Trade Mark, where you see this on an image, or a photo, you can then be assured that it is from us, if there is not our Trade Mark on the image it is not, then its not from us, even if the image looks similar to one of ours.
In the market place today there are a lot companies selling a great deal of different brands, this does not mean that if there is a Factory Cabins Logo on an image on a Multi Selling web site everything on the page its manufactured by us, please check with theus, too many frauds out there. When you purchase a log cabin and you are in doubt of its origin please check the plans as they bear a unique manufacturing number and our logo/trademark, if in doubt please do not hesitate to drop us an email with the unique number, which is located on the bottom right hand corner of the build plans.
Please click the link and this will take you to a page of companies that only retail our product, these cabins we can 100% vouch for and you are assured that you are getting the quality you have paid for. Thank you.
Thank you for reading this,
If its not an LV, or Factory Cabins branded log cabin, then your buying mass produced rubbish’
Why is everyone complaining about prices, why? What do you expect when you close all industry down for more than a year on the whole planet, you think its just going to jump straight back up and start pumping out again the same old rubbish as before? No, people have changed and changed a lot, people who drove lorries now want to be farmers and have a slower life, those that worked in the factories now want to work from home, or start up their own business, this Virus has changed us all, and timber prices as well as everything else has gone up, why? Because there is demand, but sadly though there is not enough timber to go around, plus and this is the funny thing, in the UK for years we have listened to government and the EU about how bad everyone is but us, it’s amazing really, because we are all as bad as each other, now as a Britt, I have not lived in the UK for many, many years, and I have travelled extensively and met all walks of life from many different countries, but today we will speak about 2 in particular. Russia and Belarus. Both these countries have own the vast majority of the lungs of the world, (Forests in case someone is confused). Now these two countries are always jumped on for being run by criminals, dictators and the like, which is utter rubbish, because you all in the EU or UK are being told YOU MUST HAVE THE VACCINE, that is dictatorship. That is exactly what we say about Russia and Belarus, even to the point where the passports must be changed now in the EU and UK to show who has and who has not been vaccinated. I thought we all had a choice, seems not. Am I really living in a freedom of speech state, where my thoughts and wants, desires and needs are respected, well sadly no we are not? Our governments were supposed to change every so many years, now we have career politicians running everything, year after year and lying weekly and daily, and nothing is done about it, and most are complete and utter paedophiles and inbreeds.
So taking that all into account, who are we to jump into other people’s elections and disturb them and try and land grab land, if the Belarussian people think it’s better in the EU, ask the Greeks, they will tell you the truth. The grass is never greener.
EU sucks, its completely corrupt and run by absolute career politicians. Who care nothing about your well-being. Which is why the vaccines were late being rolled out, Italy suffered terribly, as did UK, but the UK government was thank fully not under direction of the EU, otherwise we would have had 1000s of more deaths. The EU even used the soft boarder and threatened to make it a hard boarder in Ireland over vaccines, treating the Irish like cattle. So, most of you have a slight idea about what and who we have playing with our lives on a daily basis, and these people also tried to destroy an election in Belarus, and in Ukraine, and Russia and wherever they see fit. So…. It is laughable, these countries hold the majority of the Timber, Construction, wood on this side of the planet, so now Russia, Belorussia and the like are telling the EU and the UK, go scratch. What ever you want, pay for it now. And that’s why houses, cabins, sheds, fencing, decking, floorboards, construction timber all around the globe has tripled in price. In the future Russian companies and Belorussian companies will own companies in the UK and sell their lumber directly to the public and cut out the middle man, they will sell it cheaper, and better quality. This is the future.
And if you are one of the lucky ones to be able to source it now, then happy days, but most can’t…
Shocked is not the word, this is disgusting, its all most as bad as price of sheds, decking, and other timber related goods in the UK, and the amount people are charging you , its a rip off. Sadly the south is hit the hardest, and then London and the areas around it.
I just want to show the difference in this brief blog.
When looking for a cabin, please think about the 44mm x 44mm log cabins on factory cabins, cheaper than the rest, we designed this system, and we are the leaders in this, plus our windows and doors are with out doubt the best then anyones.
Check out these cabins.
Now we will show you similar cabins of ours but please check out our pricing. Its mind blowing.
OK the first is bigger than that displayed by www. i love your money .com, And the price for out larger more unique, better designed, better actually in every way in 70mm is £5040 ex works, where our www. i love your money .com, £4581 more. Hello, is some one just a dumb stupid greeedy idiot or what, trading standards should be knocking tomorrow at your door. Virus does not mean we rip people off.
Then here comes the real , serious rip offs, Check out the two last cabins, and you will see they are both priced similar, one in 35mm, thats not a bad size if you want cheap and cheerful, and then there is 44mm which is my favourite, and it hardly splits and never twists if its put up quickly and treated, put on a good flat base and you add the gutters etc. Flat base, gutters, good body stain, decent roof covering and a good drain away and our cabins will last 20 + years, I personally have the first ever 44mm twin skin building ever made, and i can say hand on heart do a good job at the beginning and it could out live you, and i have designed the windows and doors to be super hardy!
Below is a building that is say £3000 cheaper than both, yet is bigger, better looking, it has my designed roof, and your friends will do a back flip when they go inside and have a look at your new chill out room. bar, pool room, or just office.
And if the mill cuts the corners from its timber logs it means they are twisted and it stops you seeing the twist. Now you know and you know what to look out for and not buy.
Actually I have no clue, but we are up there with the 1% that do.
Sorry about the swearing but as the saying goes the more swearing the higher the intelligence.
So what is so very special about us and our girls and guys that are out their fitting and helping you with your orders through this very hard times we have.
Yes timber is hard to come by, but we can still get the best of the best, yes windows and doors are hard to get the hardware for, but Germany came through as always, and yes there are many, too many people out there complaining that everything takes time, to those people, GO AWAY…. This has been the worst year for people just wanting to complain, and everyone is super aggressive, why? have no idea, but life moves on and ignoring the muppets that lost their sheep and concentrating on the serious people who do not moan if what i do.. I have no time to waste as we are super busy with people that really understand this industry and cabins are not manufactured from plastic.
One of my amazing dealers had a old stupid woman call her and say she had a problem with her cabin she had bought 2 years ago, my agent of 12 years said what can i help you with she said the water is coming in, my agent asked for photos, and then the old woman like most started shouting credit card and all this, crap about unfit and and. Well she forgot to put gutters on her building for two years….. People should read terms and conditions. Always Guttering….. And Draining…. Then she calls one of my agents threatens her with liable action and shouts out credit card this and that, always read terms and conditions, your house is not sitting in water, so what should your amazing log cabin ( my amazing log cabins) ?? Some people are just exceptionally stupid.
This annoyed me because we always fix what needs to be fixed if it does and normally before America, or China tried to kills us all, i forgot freedom of speech is not allowed anymore, like woman racing against Biologically other woman, forbidden, now anyone is anything they want, but telling the truth is not allowed. why and who thought it was a great idea to lets gays run against woman, just because your balls are missing does not mean your a girl. Really pisses me off, the left have destroyed the man, and woman bringing into play the lets all be gay lesbian and messed up, take drugs and have implants and completely upset the simple rhythm of the planet, MAN , WOMAN CHILD. To all those offended, ( free speech, piss off).
OK cabins enough ranting, Biden, the glasses you gave President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin are fucking cheap awful shit, you stupid old man!
Our Old are not respected, our war memorials are smashed, our statues are pulled down, and the last straw our family values eroded and pushed aside for something that is sadly just completely sick.
OK check out this amazing cabin by us…… totally heterosexual!
Please call us for pricing, we would love to display the pricing on our cabins, how ever the prices on timber are only going up and up monthly and its difficult to change the prices on the website, so we are having to do it the old way sadly, until Russia make their timber so stupidly expensive we will all just quit buying from them and start to buy from Canada, Many mills in Canada shut 3 years ago sadly, but when there is demand Then they will reopen. The reason pricing is going up for the very best timber, is that America is now as well as the Chinese buying Russian lumber in massive quantitates , and as you can imagine both are greedier than the other. China does not care about FSC so sadly they buy black market logs. And where there is money there are always men and woman who will risk cutting down huge amounts of forest to fill their greedy pockets.
SO WHY ARE THE COSTS OF TIMBER BUILDINGS GOING UP, SIMPLE, BLAME BIDEN! HE COULD BUY CANADIAN BUT REFUSES TO. HE COULD MINE HIS OWN OIL , BUT REFUSES TO, HE COULD GET HIS OWN GAS BUT REFUSES TO. HE JUST WANTS HE’SHES TO RUN IN THE OLYMPICS.
OK, let’s look at facts and pictures, firstly facts, most, if not all cabin companies sell with their log cabins not just rubbish windows and doors, crap windows and doors if the truth was to be known. If you ask Dunster, Quick Garden, or even Tuin, Imedeska to look at their standard, no frills windows that come standard with their 44mm and upwards.
Let’s look at a no frills, standard, ok firstly hinges,
Yes you can guess, left hinge is nearly the whole of the low end mass produced log cabin market and 30% of the middle and ours, Hinge on the right, you presume correctly ours the number 1 hinge, German Manufactured, and a 5 year guarantee.
So Let’s add a few pics of bad, very bad windows and doors, it’s either the hinges are inadequate or the tilt and turn system is just rubbish, this is one to always look out for, if they offer you this system, then you will have problems in 3 years. Dunster House is owned by the Murphy Family, Daddy is Chris, https://find-and-update.company information.service.gov.uk/company/02913901/officers
Come on Dunster, let’s have a good look, a close up look of your windows and doors, because i know you’re hiding your quality,,, if it’s so good show it off like us… Lets see the thickness of your frame work, your joinery timber and your tip top windows and doors!
OK what I have decided to do is let you check out the companies at present selling their wares their way by You Tube, and please check out there windows and doors, look at drip trays, construction type, quality of workmanship and if you think your spending your money in the right place, and do not forget, Factory Cabins LTD has the best of the best in range, price, and of course quality of build.
And check out the windows and doors in these cabins…….. Talk about Cheap!!!!
Seriously have you looked at most of the windows and doors on these cabins, they are a joke, complete and utter joke, we even have a few that want you to IKEA some talk about mass produced way overpriced rubbish, and the paint on the last one was flaking off the frame, that’s quality assured..
Its crazy, but i was looking through my old hard drives and i found our old images we use to use in the old days, like 2001/2007 and then we changed, and they were just left in a folder and forgotten about, I know a few people still use them, but I just thought i would share them with you today and maybe you see something that over the time has disappeared from all our new designs we have now, which believe me is a the largest cabin designs in the world.
You know when you want to say something , but you can’t because it kind of spoils the surprise, well next week we will showcase our windows and everyones elses windows and doors and believe me when i say our new standard windows and doors will put to sleep the market spit spot!
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.
So what are we writing about today, what can i possibly write and it will seem to be completely different than anything else I have written in the past, I have said so many truths yet most of you do not know the difference between a timber frame house, or a Log cabin or a fucking post box painted Red, why don’t you just call me and ask what you need to known, i know all the scumbags in this industry and the good ones,I know the ones that in 2008 went bust and the ones who just go on holidays 6 times a year and actually have never even see your buildings, and know 0% about log cabins, in general. seriously, but there is hope yet, as I am becoming slowly but surely the Agony Aunt, and today i received some photos and a small cry for help, as the company these respectable, hard working British family bought their £9.000 cabin from in 44mm, were just completely fucked over , ( I swear, don’t like it go away)…so their money was taken and the company did a typical Baltic Runner. As from the 1st of January, Trading standards will no doubt shut them down, prosecute and fine this company.
Ok firstly, if something starts with the words Quick, it normally means trouble, remember what our grandparents told us, slowly, slowly catch yeah monkey, and that is in all things, And anyone thinks something racist about that, fuck off back from whence you came.
OK that bit cleared up, Quick and the wording Garden, spells to me one thing, leaking, bad, cheap, and crap and Debbie, her son Charlie and her family were told, informed that their cabin was the nuts, the bees knees, the cream of cabins, the best of the best and all that crap ….. They have informed trading standards, and they have also mentioned that this company loves using the wording Residential Friendly (( Hello everyone it means NOTHING )) You can put up build type, as it is a type style in build design, but you can not mention residential friendly, as that is implying it has U values, structural calculations and is winterized, which it is not..
So story goes something like
Grandmother dies, and leaves grandson money, grand son in his 20’s decides he will move out into the garden and give his mum and dad some peace, and also gives him time to romance his girlfriend as much as he likes behind his own curtains, in his cabin, he yard, his space, and he has wanted his own log cabin for a very long time, and had been going on the net looking for the quality and size he needed, so he sadly was taken in by all the crap and waffle most of the companies write, and he made a QUICK decision, he was looking for his space, and something he was going to pay for himself. A typical strong, fighting fit, English Boy, character and grit. But too trusting, if its cheap, quick and says garden its means CRAP!
So the cabin of his dreams arrived, he was told it was perfect to live in, it was put on a concrete base and off you go, the builders came in £1600 to build it, that in itself was a rip off, as a 44mm should have cost half that, but recession being , prices are high…
So Charlie, went out to see his finished cabin, and Quickly he became upset, when it rained and rained and rained, and then he realised that he was not just getting in water leaking in through the roof, and walls , yes walls, but also the floors and then the doors and windows leaked, and his heart was broken, his bed was wrecked, carpet, and belongings.
And guess what our
trading standards division in the UK, which is versed on this company are doing
nothing , why , because they have had funding pulled, and do not have the man
power to do anything, and even though this is a multi million pound fraud going
on each and every week, they are too blind and stupid to do anything or police
So we police it, with my
blogs and other blogs that really know this industry.
I have put a lot of photos with this blog.
Just so you can see for
yourself, never buy anything that has quick attached to the name..
Remedy for this cabin, the doors and windows are absolute cheap rubbish, not fit for purpose, change them, please go to our page https://www.logcabinslv.co.uk/premium-windows-doors-gallery/, send us the sizes and colour you want them, and we will send them to you. Next the whole cabin you must varnish it in decking varnish for yachts. At least 3 coats. And a 44mm building is not a residential building, it’s not even building reg friendly….. it will be never ever fit to sleep in, ever… it is a glorified shed, nothing more. Actually some sheds, as they are timber framed are better, unless you buy a twinskin.
Second remedy, ask a local independent registered carpenter to come in and make a full assessment on the cabin, faults, windows and doors, etc, and them put that to trading standards, they will then send a summons to the company, if they do not pay, then, there is a Lithuanian institution , https://www.antstoliai.lt/vbp/public, and these people will take the money from the companies account immediately. It does not matter if it’s a UK resident or Lithuanian, you bought the cabin while being an EU citizen , which means they can not run from you. Assets or money will be taken from them, if a court rules against them.
If the Lithuanian court rules in their favour, you can then seize any goods coming into the “UK” country from this company and sell it till your settlement is upheld. And as they sell possibly 500 buildings a month into UK, and the trucking invoice will obviously confirm their company name, you have no problems in getting your money back quickly.
If I were you I would speak to them and tell them to take it back, and just refund you the full amount, to them its peanuts, but if they push this , they will loose, and they will then loose their check rate, complain to their bank and credit card company, and make them problems.
DOORS DO NOT EVEN ALIGN.
I am going to keep shut, you decide…..
Always remember that you must always have a correct drainaway,,,, mother nature is a bitch most of the time, so keep water away , completely away, from your log cabin, the log cabin should be off the floor, and that’s the first rule, there are many others, and that you should never buy a cheap cheap cheap log cabin, as it will come back to bite you in so many awful ways.
It’s really funny, we have been around since day one, yet, no one knows us, possibly because we have been the quiet supply to a the chain of disgusting greedy piggy dealerships that just got more and more greedy it was like a pandemic of mass proportion that was ill , sick and vile that swept the UK, and only money, profit and scams . So last year we put a complete stop to it, and kept just 3 dealers and got rid of the rest.
What’s really upsetting is that greed spoils good in everything, and greed has always been the downfall of most cabin log Dealers.
One comment i want to get clear from the start of this blog, we can be trusted with money, any amount, we had 70 dealerships that trusted us with your money each and every day, but we could not trust them to offer you a fair deal! ( please remember this) ……… it was not them that sacked us, it was us that sacked them!
Many years ago I was walking
through a small, empty warehouse, and I saw out of the corner of my eye a 3m x
3m corner, interlocking 28mm log cabin, and I knew then that this was my future
staring at me, covered in dust, doors hanging off, and boards full of holes and
the timber not particularly very good, but the design was perfect, obviously I had
to push the Mill, to manufacturer a better product, and it was quite difficult,
as the standards here in Lithuania as
they are now still, sadly quite low, so one must push and push and push, which
means you have to be around the product, people, and manufacturing areas 24./7
as the only person you can trust is yourself, and I never believe anyone when
they say “ don’t worry it’s going to be cool” I always found that nothing went
as planed and the quality was always slightly a miss, compared to what I wanted
Every man and his dog has tried
to sell log cabins, and still they come, and it makes me laugh when they write
crap like, made in the UK, actually the timber is either Russian or Baltic, UK
does not have the timber quality needed to manufactured really seasoned log cabins.
So, I decided to put up some pics
of cabins that stretch back years and years, show you how we changed the
industry, and how we are still the only leading light in the industry.
For many years Log Cabins LV, has been supplying the trade, dealerships, with the best of the best Log Cabins, Certified Glulam GL Class Residential Cabins, be it a School, House, or Village Hall, all of which came to Building Regulations, We have designed over 300 different kinds of camping Pods, over 7000 different log cabins sizes range from 3m x 3m to a full 500 sq meter house, and we also offer Fully Insulated Timber Frame Buildings all the way up to Passive Standards, we have been very much in the background, and sadly we have allowed a lot of Dealerships to sell our cabins under their own brand, as you will notice on Log Cabins LV and Factory Cabins we offer an extensive Blog, this blog goes back to 2013, and on youtube, channel, our videos go back to 2005, and if you really hunt, you will find that before LV we were Sourcingtimber, we have been the most aggressive of all design teams in this market, and everyone has copied us, we designed the Clock House, twinskin interlocking system, we manufactured the first Garden Office, and we have actually changed the face of the UK gardens that is forever lasting. Factory Cabins has been in the coming for years.
Our first dealerships were targeted at some large and very well known companies that are still cheating their customers daily, if i sound angry, I am because what we manufacturer and sell for and what the Dealerships sell at, I would say there are thousands and thousands of pounds difference, which is putting it mildly. And this annoys me as its not profit its theft, and greed.
So what I did was sit back and wait for 10 years, and let the shed companies, the new cabin manufacturers come in, and flood the market, and let them build up their dealerships, and basically take an obscure product I introduced into the market some 21 years ago, and they made it know to all. And as they were doing this job for me they were also getting greedier and greedier, and prices went up and up and up.
And now we have a lot of absolutely shit cabins on the market, and i mean shit, sold at unbelievable pricing, and because sadly none of you know a decent cabin from a bad one, you believe every word you are told, and everything they write on there Perjurers websites, with stolen images from our sites, (Skinners sheds) all of them with the Clock House Design, all of them with the Twinskin Design and so on. On this blog loads of companies are listed who are just completely crooks and Charlatans who know zero about cabins, steal content from us, and sell to you then run off with your deposit, and now we are heading into a depression, and Brexit, which means you do not need a vat to buy a cabin from us anymore from the 1st of Jan, we have now decided it’s time to cut the feet of all the crooked , disgusting thieves, and sell direct. And none of them have a leg to stand on, our twin skins are cheaper than there single skins, and their add ons, are a joke.
