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!
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.
File a notice of Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) infringement with search engines such as Google and others to have the offending site removed from their search results.
So very shortly we will be asking Google to ( basically tank) websites that have our stolen images and placed them on their websites without our permission, rank is everything and those that decide to steal our content and use our trade mark to sell their below par goods. their websites and all their content will disappear. So will their earnings and their coning of the public.
Best of luck to those that feel the need to steal!
Skinners Sheds 70mm £8.250….is this company really serious, is everyone in Sussex on coke! Time to wake up, buy direct…….. I hate greed and i know you all do! No one can hide from us, we are about to rip this industry to bits, and show the corruption and over pricing. It’s bye bye Dealerships.
OUR CABIN in 44mm, OUR DESIGN, OUR IMAGES, OUR SALE, £3492, EX WORKS LT……….
Russian Siberian Pine…….
Now our 70mm price, insane EX WORKS LT £ 4478…… insane…. Now let’s show skinners where they go really wrong… Really , Really wrong!!!!!
Imagine, Skinners Sheds, offers its 44mm Log Cabin for £6.590…., imagine, single skin… we kill that with our twin skin, wake up everyone, Dealerships is the old way, buying Direct is the new way for 2020, and onwards.
WE OFFER OUR TWIN SKIN, THAT’S 44mm X 44mm TWINSKIN DOUBLE GLAZED LOGCABIN WHICH IS JUST THE BEST OF THE BEST THAT CAN BE FOR ALL YEAR ROUND, AND IT COSTS LESS THAN SKINNERS SINGLE SKIN CABIN, THAT’S LET NOT FORGET A COPY OF OUR HARD WORK. AND STEALING OUR CONTENT AND DESIGN
Ex works is easy and the new way to buy your log cabin..
WHY BUY A COPY WHEN YOU CAN BUY DIRECT FROM THE FACTORY. AND SAVE ££££££££££££
OK, I like Jonny, and yes he is selling our cabins, he is only one of a few that we allow to sell our Cabins, so you can be assured that you will get a Factory Cabins DF Cabin, an original, if your in the lake district and want to buy only from a dealer, and we respect that, then Jonny, and a few others , NO NOT SKINNERS SHEDS, will offer you a great discount on our cabins, and Jonny will offer you the assembly and base and and and. You can if you want purchase the cabin from us, direct, of course and save, but Johnny is more than happy to offer you a fantastic discount on assembly etc.
OK, Johnny’s 44mm is £5,198.00 ours ex works £3360, normally i get angry when dealers over price my designs , and my cabins, but Johnny is a cool guy, and he has agreed to allow the customer to buy direct now, and I have allowed him to keep my cabins on his site, he will offer his customers to buy from Factorycabins as he understands that price and quality, we are number one, Johnny is my guy for building large log cabins, 6.8m x 20m, he loves these and he also can offer a lot of professional experience. best in the lake district he is very, very good, very proud of his work, never runs from responsibility and I love him like a brother, ………
All our prices are ex works, which means no Vat or shipping, as from the 1st of January 2021 it won’t matter about VAT, there won’t be any to pay this end, only yours on entry, and that puts paid to massive stock on the ground, as 70% of cabins are bespoked.
Next Glulam Timber, if someone tells you they use Glulam logs, you must ask them to provide you with a certificate that the glue used in any part of the building is non toxic, also that the minimum length of log which the glulam board, log was constructed from, for your cabin walls or purlins , what ever, is more than one or one and a half meters, if it is made from small bits of timber, it’s not glulam, it’s called finger jointed, and it’s made from off cuts, so it is not a structural certified log with certification.
The certificates you will need to ask for if they say that it’s glulam this and glulam that, as most of the times they lie:
A glulam Log must be manufactured to GL24 (BS11), GL28 (BS14) and GL32 (BS16) in accordance with DIN and EN norms. so if your guy says , glulam , you say prove it.
if they can not provide these, then they are lying. And it’s not glulam. It means they are selling you walls made from offcuts and not C24 and above graded timber. I am glad we got that sorted out. Please remember this.
The KI range has been copied by all, and even the images have been stolen from our website, and other manufacturers have copied our unique design. this is not a shock to us companies with absolutely no integrity, along with the dealerships just want t earn, and where they get the design or how they manufacture it does not matter to them.
So as you can see this cabin is stolen from our site, and as you can see the price for this cabin is disgustingly high, and please believe me as the designer of this cabin, roof, its a hard cabin to manufacture, the gable ends must match 100% ( Curved apexes).
Then there is ours in 44mm, but you must remember we designed this cabin that happened over many months and we paid a skilled guy to sit for hours daily,actually monthly and years, we have done this, and some back street shed manufacturer thinks its ok to steal our designs.
Pity he does not buy from a good manufacturer or that his prices match ours.
And to top it off, here we go……
His 70 mm is £6190, seriously, not surprised he earned 11.000.000 last year!
Our 70mm ex works is……£ 3648, even with vat and transport, we are still over 1000 cheaper. if you pay us the Vat, but if you buy it with a VAT number ex works you are £2542 in pocket.
But it gets better. Ready…… they are little cabins , and the differences are small, i think £500 notes is a lot, but then I am still in touch with reality.
Check out this bad boy, this is his price for this cabin in 70mm, yep, 70mm, He buys from Ultimate Log Cabins, who sells to a lot of people, like https://www.morrowsectionalbuildings.com/ ,,,, https://logcabinsnorthernireland.com/,,,,,,,,, and the like, if you go on these sites you will see that even they have stolen our designs, images and photos, even our beloved Aurora Clock House, But what can you do, UK government is the most powerless government in the world, i even think behind somewhere like Chad! So theft, and criminal deeds be them stealing your deposits and going bust and then being allowed to keep the websites, like Trevor Watson did with Beaver log cabins in Ireland, or Geoff Morrow stealing my images and putting them all over his website because he thinks he is untouchable, he is not. he is a thief as like the rest. And now name and shame. Going to shame them all.
So Brian… ,,,,, SouthWest…. £11.783 for a 70mm 7m x 4m……. is someone on some hard core scrumpy, as i hear cider makes you mind do weird and wonderful stupid idiotic things, and in that area of the world it’s the favourite tipple I hear.
NOW OURS IN 70MM
70mm Log Cabins OC Range – 7.0 m x 4.0m Clockhouse Dorset 7004 is only, £5172 EX WORKS LT…….. The Best Double Glazed Log Cabins on the market, hard wearing 28mm floor, and a solid 19mm roof as always from FC A standard! Quality Windows and Doors !!!! SO PLEASE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS EX WORKS £6611 CHEAPER, IF WE ADD OUR VAT THE CABIN IS ONLY EX MILL £6258, HELLLOOOOOO IS SOMEONE BEING REALLY FUCKING GREEDY!!
That’s enough,,,, time for a cuppa,,, and also time for you all to ponder who is a crook! and why FactoryCabins.co.uk is number one…………..
The cabin and timber frame market is sick, not just with greed but with the regulations and the Old Boys Club adding this and that to the rules every now and then, just to make you pay more, and pay and pay and pay. It’s always about money.
I hate to say this, but in the UK you just don’t have any decent timber left, and what you have you should not cut, as there is hardly any left, and most of it is oak, and that was planted by the Victorians, since then, Gordon Brown, Tony Blaire and the rest, planting Trees sadly have been forgotten, war and selling off our gold were only on these mens minds!
England is a mess where forests are concerned, we have built too many high rise blocks, tarmacked too much earth, and cut down too many forests to build council estates and now all you have left is roads, 67 million people and not much else. Scotland is different, as is Wales, but England, its destroyed! Fields and Fields of food produce , fertilizer everywhere, and zero woods, polluted streams, and disappearing wild life. What an amazing picture, so thank God that Russia, Sweden, Finland, Lithuinia, Belarus, and other countries see the value of timber, forests and wild life. Whos the stupid ones????? Who really is behind the times?? And I am a Britt!
My name is a Kevin Langham and I am the inovator, designer, and first manufacturer, of the side entrance quality luxury camping pod ( ever) and i have sold more than everyone puttogether x 10, the first video we released was in 2010, check this video, it has had nearly 500.000 views……… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9vFACBRNf0…………. Yeah its hard to dispute the truth when You Tube so nicely keeps the records.
I have invented, designed, manufacturer some of the most outstanding camping pods, large and small living cabins, and garden log cabins in existence.
The UK gardens have actually been changed by me, and me alone, I have beeen selling cabins, the first one we sold was nearly 21 years ago, and the people who have taken the credit, be a Dragons Den ” look at me and what we sell” , or a large company who saw 14 years ago that mass manufacturing log cabins was a way of making a lot of money, and then they dumped 200.000 poorly manufactured log cabins into the UK gardens quickly, these companies have taken the lime light, and poor old Kevin plods along still and designs, manufacture and sell’s to different companies, and in turn those companies rename my products, or completely copy it, like Arch Leisure and my side entrance pods, ( my backs up today) and then sell their wares, and use my quality and photos of my pods to sell their crap under the guise of a LV design.
Never purchase anything from Arch Leisure, you just don’t know what it’s made by, and trust me when I say this, he makes at least 50% on anything he sells you! So if its 10.000, you spend 15.000, from me it would be 7000.And my quality is far, far, far superior, as we are house manufacturers, not some guy in a shed, knocking out a few pods a month. And Keith i am almost sure their will be no more 4/5 times a year to Dubi to purchase handbags and other ,luxury wares, you will have to start earning your money honestly and legally.
Be careful whom you purchase from. You will be ripped off. That’s
If you notice, this company have our designs and photos of our pods all over their website, which we have asked them nicely to take down, this is a way they will con you. and if they were to take down our camping pods their website would be empty. No content, just a few nasty cheap looking pods and toilets.
Your then shown an interior of a pod a long one, all in white, so now ask yourself a question, where is the strength in that wall? Now ours on the left of the page have glulam beams running through out, as the roof needs support, remember that KN values are essential in the UK because of new snow loads which the government directed all manufacturers to use, but as you can see on the right, there are no internal glulam supports, it’s called a luxury pod, it’s a death trap, and a dark one at that. And at £33,500+ REDUCED VAT, a rip off.
Below our Pods, and our Quality
Below my design of an interiour, very church like, very diiferent, very thoughtful, no drama, just peace of desgin and the flowing of powerful strong beams and beauty.
Now a bad, awful, weak, undermade, cheap copy, CRAP!
Designed only to make profit, based on caravan rubbish, BS3632 crap!
Cold, dark, weak, dead, empty and completely and utterly lifeless.
Super size Luxury Glamping Pods for sale An archleisure copy,…. (crap)
So my rant of the day is done, fed up with the cowboys thinking they can steal and get away with it, Keith, you stole another’s design for profit, i will garenttee that 99% of the descent farmers, and camp site owners will not want a rip off, a copy, and a bad one at that, and a double priced one to boot. Logcabins.lv, [email protected], come to the company that understands how to build.+370 6889 3563 , u can get us on whatsapp. Talk for free and get to speak to the professional Sheaprds , not the sheep!
OK lets start dissecting this pod sold by Archleisure and really look at what its manufactured from.Actually it does not say much, just blar this and Blar that, and of course they use TLX silver, which LV were the first to offer, and still do, actually we now offer, Gold, and silver, depending on the customers wishes and needs. But lets study this photo, and by the way if you happen to go to https://www.archleisure.co.uk/camping-pods-for-sale.html the marjority of the pods he is showing on his website are LV’s , he just went to a cheaper , shed manufacturer to copy our designs after 8 years of doing business, so he could make them cheaper and as you can see, not as well built. If you look at the timber along the side of this pod ( picture below) you will notice one thing very quickly, there are no stress grooves cut into the back of any of the timber, which means eventually it will twist, and that’s bad. Actually its suicide for that particular building. Next i do not see any grading marks of C24 anywhere on any of his production photos, and actually i do not see him say his windows and Trada certified, or that his timber is FSC, or what size glulams he uses. And as there is only one decent glulam mill in the UK, i have a feeling his are not made with certified glulam.
If you want to purchase a quality Camping Pod, and Archleisure this is not the company to purchase from!
I added a page view, just so my old friend Keith could not actually deny that he was selling our designs and decided to rip them off and make a cheap copy of them, but its easy as a customer to find out if this is true just by going to ,waybackwhen, and there all websites copies are held.
Anyway getting back to this pod copying company, which is rather funny actually, as he was so upset when someone stole his arch design, and how everyone was a crook, but when you have very greedy mouths to feed decent Common sense and Chivalry go out the window and greed takes it place.
And the public are fooled into thinking they are buying a quality pod, when in fact they are not, they are buying a copy of a quality Pod! logcabinslv is the best pod maker in the UK and europe thats a fact. everything else on the market is a copy and mostly is crap! If its not manufactured by skilled carpenters, then what your purchasing is not going to last. And no one in the UK can ever get our Northern Siberian Larch Cladding, EVER!!! No matter what they say, they can’t. I have been in the timber business 28 years, and the UK never gets our quality of timber.
So Keith, Mr Archleisure man, who’s website is made up of 90% of my products and you sell inferior to the customers under the guise that they are LV, now the public know.
We do not sell our pods or any items to www.archleisure.co.uk. If you want a pod, and want a company that will actually travel to site, check on how things are coming along, from the first to last day, and will service your pods and help you, and not just earn money by sitting at a desk and expecting everyone else to do the tidying up, then please give us a call or send an email.
logcabinslv.co.uk, the company behind the best pods in the industry, we designed them, the rest just copy!
A pod should be manufactured like this…. I am forgetting……….
PEOPLE WHO COPY DON’T CARE ABOUT QUALITY, JUST YOUR CASH!
If timber was so amazing for roofing…………… why then are there no houses with wooden roofs? Easy answer, timber is not waterproof, cracks and splits after a very short time, needs to be treated regularly and this is Cedar Clad, which has a lower amount of tanis than larch,and i still would not use larch ever as a roofing material, its solely for claddings. It’s a pity the people who come up with these ideas actually understood timber…..
Thank you for reading…. Do not make a mistake a buy a copy! Buy a good solid camping pod from the guys that started this revolution, the freedom for campsites, don’t feed the guys who only think about cash….. And trust me, they never come when there’s a problem and blame you for everything when it goes badly wrong.
www,logcabinssussex.co.uk is one of our leading web sites in the south east of the UK, and as such we have linked it to our main sites to let the customers know that factory prices are now available from us from all our websites, we are now the leading light once again in the industry, the cowboys have all fallen from their horses, the ones that lied and cheated daily have gone bankrupt, ( hopefully you’re not affected by them) its dangerous now to give anyone deposits, too many manufacturing plants have gone bust, and the prices sadly for many items will increase as sales degrease, it’s the way of the recession, I have been in two, and i know that recessions are used by dealers to take deposits and then go bankrupt and use it as an excuse to steal blindly from you. We have been here from the very beginning and we will be here till the end, we understand that now every penny counts which is why we have brought an end to all our resellers, So if you’re looking for a bespoke log cabin, or just a plain old cabin for the lawn mower, or your looking for a fully insulated room, to either use as a full time office or sleep in, then we are the folks to chat to.
Companies that don’t care to calibrate machinery and use correct blades, and destroy timber, and sell you off cuts and use the words Glulam should be arrested for fraud. It’s only because they write such eloquent words to describe their products you believe half the crap they spout!
I am always told off for screaming and shouting about other companies and slagging them off, but as i am the longest running dealer/manufacturer of cabins in the market, i feel i have the right to actually tell you the public the truth.
OK here’s a classic example, of good quality glulam
This is quality cutting at its best, this is how you interlock a building, beautiful timber, amazing machinery and quality 100%
Awful disgusting glulam. actually its finger jointed rubbish, and is about as waterproof as a wet paper bag.
The Cutting is so bad is laughable, its utter crap through and through.
Then you get companies selling you this crap, seriously, how and why would they do it? the answer is quite simple, they just do not care about you, they care about how much money they can earn quickly.
If you notice, our logs are from Russian redwood, CE certified, and before someone shouts out FSC, it’s a company only earning money from every stick of timber you purchase, and 90% of the staff that work in the FSC headquarters have never ever been into a forest, it’s all about the money. If they can show me plane tickets for at least 40% of their staff actually visiting forests in this end of the world, ( Russia) and can prove they know what’s what i will withdraw this accusation, but they can’t and won’t. It’s all a con.

As we know camping is all the rage now, and camping pods are on the top of the list for most sites owners, and choosing which kind of pod to purchase is a headache, as there are so many companies that produce what was once a quality product, and is now a off the shelf mass produce pile of crap in most cases.
Then and only then comes price, as there is no amount of money on this planet that can bring a dead customer back to life, and this may sound dramatic, but where camping pods, or any small structures are concerned in the camping futurity, its sadly a fact that people have died in camping pods.
Who is to blame for these deaths, well, its not for me to say, but as a company we manufacture buildings with more than one escape route in case of a fire, we insist that our dealers offer carbon monoxide detectors, and we insist that the camp site owners use them, maintain them, and test them.
We also make sure all our camping pods, be them 2.4m x 4.0m or our new barrel pods 4.8m x 4.8m are fitted with CE-Trada certified manufactured windows and doors, and I am not just talking about the glass, I am talking about the actual window and door frame itself. These are manufactured to a very high standard and are designed for the sole purpose of Fire, and also theft.
We also insulate our camping pods with TLX silver, which I know now has been copied and put into most cheap version pods, but we also only use KD C24 graded, structural timber, which other manufacturers do not. You will be lucky if their timber is actually graded.
If you are looking for a high quality, very unique camping pod, that really is the best of the best, then LV is actually the only company to speak to, our designs are exceptional in every way, and our new barrel pod is the latest of our designs, that takes the pod market onto a different level of quality.
Our New Camping Barrel Pods by Log Cabins LV are just amazing in every way!
So why is it that our camping pods are the most sought after by the larger holiday camps and camping sites, well this is easy to answer. Our Buildings are designed to last the test of time and keep mother nature out, and more importantly, we design our Pods, lodges to be mass handled by the public.
All our buildings can be built to the UK Caravan Code, or to full Housing Regulation complete with full structural calculations, we are even able to make our camping pods Passive, depending on what is needed by each individual Customer Architect or Council, everything is achievable, we just need to sit down and talk.
There are so many campsites now in Europe that offer camping pods as a form or retreat for their customer base.
Sadly the camping pod market is stagnant and the designs that come from most mills are copies of copies of copies.
This being the case, the quality of most copy Camping pods is low, and the lifespan is 5 years if you are extremely lucky.
Camping Pods need to be manufactured to a high standard, the reason for this is simple, you are offering them out to the public, and safety needs to come first.
Windows and doors need to be certified, moreover, the insulation levels need to be high, build quality and the timber used needs to be of high quality, and the manufacturer of your camping pod needs to be of house builder standard, not a back street shed manufacturer.
Logcabins LV has over the last 10 years been manufacturing Pods, we have supplied the largest parks in the UK with our pods, Zoos, campsites, and Children’s Adventure Parks.
We have now designed what we think is the most unique- camping pod design in a very long time.
Our New for 2018 Barrel Pods, which start at 4.8m x 4.8m and are 3m in height come fully insulated and designed to give your customers an ultimate campsite luxury feeling.
Yet, they are truly spacious, full of light, and not forgetting the quality of the build and the high end manufacturing production line they come off on.
Our very highly skilled carpenters, 4 to a team, can build one pod a month, which means each and every Pod from LV comes hand built and manufactured with care and attention.
If you would like to know more about our single pods, or even you are thinking of a double pod, please give us a ring!
Have you noticed that most companies just churn out the same crap year after year?
The only difference in their product normally is the price, it goes up and up and up, and quality normally is reversing.
I know this is the worst way to start a blog, knocking the competition, but actually, there is no competition where our camping pods are concerned. We manufacture the best camping pods in the industry, we also design pods that make financial sense.
So here are the Pods of the future, delivered in 2 sections, 3m high, and 4.8m x 4.8m in size.
The Barrel Pod as it is known is now the best-selling design on the market, and the reason for this is simple, it’s spacious, its built to withstand all the elements, its unique, difficult to manufacture, and is fully insulated, and hard wearing.
It’s glulam beams and unique roof shape, double glazed, argon filled windows and doors which are all Trada Certified, makes Our LV Barrel Pod, not just Unique but also the highest quality manufactured camping pod in the marketplace.
