Credit Cards, and UK builders.

OK , so lets talk about whats what. Firstly, I have written on my blog so many times about cowboy buildings, thats in all the market, shed, cabins, houses, timber frame and brick, ((( UK))) you look for the solution to a problem you might have, which is normally space, and what happens you go to the Yellow pages and pic the one that they say is the best, you then have some guy comes round, and prices up your job, in the UK any kind of construction starts from ( not shed or log ) but Timber , Brick, Brick being the one that most people jump on, then deciding it will not help much when it comes to being quick, no fuss, or mess.

So, prices….

The cost of building a 2 bedroom house in the UK is anywhere between £187,625.00 to £281,437.00 the average size is FROM 60 SQ METERS TO 105 SQ METERS, depending. ( we are not talking about quality buildings, we are talking about the mass produced crap, which are generally called starter homes, thin walls, zero ( what we consider to be nothing) insulation and the cheapest double glazing the company can find).

Most Normal houses start with a price if completely detached about £220.000, and we are not talking about a quality, amazing , superb, etc. they are OK.. Building costs in the UK start from £1,950 per square metre.

56.16 SQ METER. And the starting price is , ready , FROM £239.995 56.17 Square Meters.

This is for seriously a cheap manufactured house. I could not find anywhere how they built this house and with what, what materials and quality of them. And the problem is, it’s bunched up with loads of other houses. Are they using graded timber, or just unseasoned knotting timber, are they using quality insulation or just cheap and cheerful low grade rock wool, or some cheap foil back??

Do they love what they do, or just your money! This question I ask everyone who does any work for me, be it the mechanic or my electrician. If its for the money only, then later, find someone new who really enjoys what he does.

There is Land to be found, and there is space, and you can get planning, and you can make your house far better, cheaper costs, and almost off grid if you know what you’re doing.

All I am saying is think before you start to spend loads of money on a house that costs loads of money to run…..

And, in 2022, a cost estimation for a house is anywhere between £1,750 and £3,000 per m2.

Now check this out……… This is a build regulation that is far surpass the UK build regulations, it makes a mockery of it.

The main requirements for TEK17 are low U-values of house constructions and airtightness of the structure.

  • Floor construction U-value – not more than 0,15 W/m2K
  • Outside wall – not more than 0,18 W/m2K
  • Roof – not more than 0,13 W/m2K
  • Windows and doors (with frame) – not more than 0,8 W/m2K

We can go higher on the U value, and not for a great deal more, But! You will loose some internal space of your unit.

This way Norwegian authorities push new buildings to be energy-efficient and this way the country is leading in the world according to high standards for buildings.

This is what you should be aiming for…. But can your builder A-afford to build this kind of building, given current price levels, yes, he could if he were us, even cheaper, and Factory means Factory, and the TEK 17 build reg is way out of most people’s dreams.

Not because its super expensive, but because people just go to the wrong people to purchase their dream home.

Firstly Credit Cards, they are perfect, always pay deposits, or whatever you buy with a card, your protected.
I have said many times, that builders now are going broke, why? because they spend the profit, and keep the material cost of that month in their pocket, profit comes at the end, not beginning, remember that and you are always safe, that’s how a good business works, also work out a payment schedule, not done, not paid.

And as everything rises in price, daily, weekly, your builder’s price is gone, and a new one is to follow, or they go bust. So, what do you do…? Call us…

Last words today…. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS PAY WITH A CREDIT CARD!!!!

Phone Number, and Plans-Photos-Camping Pods

Hi everyone, OK, just a quick Note, so when you ask you will not be upset by my answer.

You want plans, photos and you can not even give me your phone number, well you know what I am going to say. I have so many stupid people call me and tell me they are going to build a camping site, and please can they have our in depth technical drawings of our amazing high quality top of the line camping pods, or our insulated passive housing, what ever, and then they submit that to the council, council say yes because the quality is so exceptionally high, also with safety at the forefront , and the product we offer does not look like a load of chicken sheds on a hill side of natural beauty, and then once the council looks at us they say yes, and then the Holiday Camping site Entrepreneur buys cheap crap, and saves himself 1000’s and puts all your lives at risk.

So we now say no, and no its going to stay, so if your calling me for a plan, it will cost you now a few pennies and you must offer a land line and mobile number. otherwise buy the crap from someone else.

Heres an example of a company that lies and cheats.

This joke of a company do not have my permission to sell my cabins, or use my images, but, Skinner Sheds are a law to themselves. but check out their pricing and they want to sell you a second hand cabin for £2000 more than a new one from us.

Skinners, again stealing our drawings, art work, design, and then over pricing you by ££££££££££££££££££ and its an ex display model! 11.879.00 for a second hand building. Wow, and his windows and doors are shocking, plus ex display means, shrinkage, water damage and stains. all equals, Rubbish for that price.

Yep, this is ours, ours alone, Skinners stole the art work as I said, and he is trying to steal from you £2000 plus with his price, however our cabin to you will have will have amazing windows and doors, his are sadly shed quality, his customer service is like talking to HSBC, and to top it off, his timber is Baltic, he purchases his cabins from a very good high volume mill, but it is a bulk mill, nothing fancy, nothing to write home about. The owner , cool dude, and he makes lots and lots of cabins, who he sells to everyone. Everywhere.

BEWARE OF THE 12-14-16 week waiting time for your LOG CABIN 2020………………………………………………………………………

A small note to the wise, in 2008 we all remember the awful recession, and in that recession a few tricks were played by certain individuals that I will not mention, who are though still trading, and the trick was this, they knew that bad times were coming, so they did something very underhanded, and as a supplier to some of these companies, we lost 100’s of 1000’s of pounds. And the Public lost a lot more.

You must be very wary of the 12 week waiting time scenario, companies who you think you can trust, tell you the waiting time is 12/14/16 weeks, and you pay a deposit, after that 16 weeks has elapses, they go bust! They go off line, and you will receive sorry letters, but your deposit is gone, and then you have to go back to the bank to see if its possible to get your money back, we do not have a waiting time, we are as always pre Virus 4/5 weeks, the same as it was before, and 4/5 weeks after said Virus.

So if your told to wait, be careful………………….

Please remember , 2007, many resellers went broke, pay by card. deposit and for full payment. Be clever, and be happy! Keep your distance and wear a mask!

Regarding purchasing Cabins, Timber Buildings or any item from Self Employed Dealers. Resellers,  who sell our LV or FC brand, if you went to the Self Employed Dealers, reseller,  first, please do not come to us, if you have a question, concerns please call us, but as they are resellers, we are unable to do anything legally to them regarding their prices , Please remember and do not forget a business needs earn money, we can say what we think they should be sold at, but we cannot by law demand they sell it at what we think. So, it’s always best to look at other websites, and please remember our cabins are high quality, so like for like pricing will be difficult, but there are a few companies out there that are the same nearly as ours and you can gauge if the pricing if fair or not.

I say this all the time, pay with a credit card………. It keeps you safe.

We have no claim or claims to our dealerships working practises, or who and what they do. We are not responsible for deposits they may take, and we are not responsible for broken doors, windows, or bad workmanship, fitted kitchens, bad fitted bathrooms etc, we however would like to be told this in writing so we can take the matter to the company concerned and ask them to help you with your concerns.

When we deliver a cabin to our resellers, they are the owner of that cabin, timber building etc, until they give it to you, you don’t even own it, once its delivered to you, you sign for it, but before you do, inspect it, you can refuse to sign for it if there is damage. The law is on your side, however if you have had a bespoke cabin made for you, and there are missing parts, or a broken door, you cannot return this, the company (reseller) has 28 days, or whatever his T and C’s  say in which to fix your Log Cabin. We have some amazing resellers, and they will bend over to help you have that amazing cabin in your garden.

Here is a note to everyone, only buy a cabin if your job is secure, and you can afford it, as most cabins are bespoke manufactured for you, refunds are almost impossible. So please beware of this.

Please take note, please,please always ask if you can pay with a credit card.

Thank you for reading.

Log Cabins Window and Doors

How many companies on the net actually show their windows and doors in their full glory, I can answer that, NONE! Why? Because most of the companies on the web offering cabins have low quality windows and doors!

Over the years we have put more attention on our window and door production line, than trying to pump more of the same out the door as 99.9% of companies seem to do!

I know this is a scathing attack on the competition, but we actually don’t have competition where our cabins are concerned, we are not a cash and carry manufacturer, we do not manufacture hundreds of the same cabin style  in the winter and push them out the door in the summer, all of our cabins are bespoke to order. If you are looking for a quality cabin at a very reasonable price logcabinslv.co.uk have what you are looking for.Logcabins.lv has the largest selection of log cabins on the market to date.

We are the only manufacturer able to offer, laminated log cabins, scandinavian log cabins, timber frame buildings, round log cabins, camping pods, saunas, gazebos, summer houses, Micro Housing, and so very much more.

Log Cabins LV BBQ Hut-Kota Hut

BBQ Cabins

BBQ Grill Huts-Grill Huts-BBQ Cabin manufaucturer. 

With a Logcabins.lv high quality insulated sectional timber framed

Kota Cabin BBQ hut you can have a BBQ all the year round.

Even when it rains!

On a lovely bright sunny day many of us get motivated to bring out that BBQ from the Garden Shed and start cooking for our friends and family the traditional outdoor enjoyable festivity.

In the UK, however, there never seems to be enough of those days and before you know it autumn has arrived and back into the Shed goes that BBQ where it sits for almost another year taking up quite a lot of room. If the summer is anything like the wet 2012, your BBQ probably never saw the light of day. So how can we resolve this?

 

Logcabins.lv just love problems like this. It whets the creative appetite.

Let us look at what we feel you would really like. Here are four main points.

 

1)    To be able to have a Barbecue all year round.

2)    Not to have to cart the BBQ to and from the Garden Shed.

3)    To have something in the Garden that is attractive even when not in use.

4)    To have something that is virtually maintenance free.

 

Answer?  A fully insulated top quality Siberian Larch, timber framed BBQ Hut.

We proudly present the KOTA CABIN.

The Kota Cabin BBQ Hut is in a class of its own. It represents the state of the art futuristic way to entertain and share a BBQ with your friends and family at anytime of the year.

 

This beautiful insulated timber framed sectional  building has been carefully crafted from the best grade C24 Trada graded wood. Many other timber merchants who are keen to price cut end up using the grade of timber that we at Logcabins.lv reject.  It has best quality insulated framework to ensure comfort and strength for all year round use. You can then be assured of enjoying the benefit of your cabin for many years to come. In fact the outer Larch clad mellows as it ages and improves as time goes on. Siberian Larch and Pinewood are rated as the finest quality timber in Europe, if not globally. Why? Because this type of timber is obtained from arctic type forestry where such trees, during their growth period, have to contend with extreme temperature conditions.

These trees grow slowly over many years creating a much more dense, well-seasoned wood. Once felled they are put into production and kiln dried to exacting moisture content that is maintained in quality control conditions. In particular, Siberian Larch that is used for the outside walls of the Kota Cabin is virtually indestructible because of its high tannin content giving the timber a high level of water resistance thus making wood rot virtually impossible in its natural state.

 

Front section of the insulated timber framed sectional Kota Cabin

This exploded view of the Kota Cabin shows how easily it can accommodate 6-8 people who can sit comfortably around the generous solidly crafted central table that incorporates the built in BBQ. Other than the enticing smell of the cooked food, the smoke that emits from the BBQ goes out through the exquisitely designed central Flue to the chimney which is equipped with a rainproof and windproof covering so that nothing can blow back into the cabin.

The ceiling area is supported by carefully milled timber framed beams that support the 8 triangular shaped tongue and grooved sections that have been designed to accept the roof insulation and roofing tiles.

The finest quality pine is used for the timber-framed walls. The beautiful tongue and groove timber crafted prismoidal effect flooring completes this.

 

Not unlike the extremely popular Logcabins.lv Camping Lodge, the Kota Cabin is 6.5m wide x 6.5m long and sits against a superior Siberian graded and Trada certified decking area that is 6.5m wide x 5.5m long. This leaves 3.5m in front of the Kota Cabin for an additional outside lounge and dining area.

 

The maximum height of the Kota Cabin is 4.1m with a ridge height of 2.1m.

The double door frontage is wheelchair friendly with plenty of room inside to manoeuvre the wheelchair into position anywhere around the table.

 

Each of the five rear sectional timber framed walls has the best grade double glazed windows for maximum natural light. This leaves the front three sections. The very front is where there are double glazed double doors and either side of those are high, virtually full length top grade double glazed units providing maximum comfort whatever the weather as well as strong and sturdy, yet delightfully designed, door and window furniture for maximum security.

 

Including the decking area, the maximum garden ground space taken up by the Kota Cabin is 10m x 6.5m. An exceptionally appealing addition to any private garden.

 

For commercial use, the insulated timber framed Kota Cabin represents the ultimate facility for the leisure industry. Maintenance is a breeze with very little to worry about other than easy regular cleaning.

 

Besides renting out the Camping Lodge for your fishery or Hotel complex. By adding a couple of strategically positioned Kota Cabins, additional income can easily be made by renting out this type of facility. A complete package could be offered to the potential clients to include these amenities.

 

Be it for commercial or private use, you can be assured that once in your possession, unlike the traditional “Drag it in –drag it out” BBQ. The finest quality insulated sectional pine timber framed, Siberian Larch clad Kota Cabin will be used again and again.

 

Once again, value for money is of paramount importance and we at logcabinslv.co.uk are convinced that you will be pleasantly surprised of the price structure that we have formulated for you. This is simply because you will receive from us consistently high quality products that have been rigorously quality checked and tested throughout the production process as well as using only the very best quality high grade, Trada certified, timber from sustainable forests that meet the requirements of retaining our natural resources for future generations.

 

We at logcabinslv.co.uk are always pleased to discuss your requirements. You can also get more information from any one of our appointed dealers or partners.
