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!
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
What is an insulated timber frame garden room, because there seems to be a mass confusion on this subject generally throughout this industry.

Now there are many kinds of Insulated Timber Frame Garden Rooms, there are solid log cabins that are insulated internally and if you get a company that really truly knows what they are doing, ( how to put up false walls that move with the cabin shrinking) and are not using quick grown pine as the cabin body as this will shrink and the internal wall will crack and break before long, then your OK, then there are twin skin glulam cabins which are the best choice, as you can either twinskin them and add huge amounts of insulation between the walls also hide the wiring and services, pipes etc, and the shrinking is minimal.
OK.. Insulated means, insulation, but what kind of insulation should you use, and what kind of stud wall, or log would suit your budget the best. And this word budget seems to be the most dirtiest word in the business.
I have asked many customers what’s their budget, and they always say, OK, 99.9% of them say, I do not know, and this makes me smile, because i know that their thoughts are that if they say 20, 30 or even 70.000 we are going to take advantage of that and try and get as much from them as possible, and as I said it makes me smile, it also makes me angry slightly, because not all of us are crooks, and we need to know budget because we have a Massive Selection of different kinds of buildings available that would suit their purpose, but all come at different levels of pricing, we are also very busy people, all of us, customer and manufacturer, and offering this and then that and then this and then that, just takes up time and eventually we find out 90% of the time what they wanted was so far out of their budget the whole exercise has been a waste of time both ends. So it is helpful from first call, to tell us how much you want to spend, and what size of a building you are looking for and we will try our very best to get the into your garden or field, camping site, Holiday park the building or buildings you desire to price.
There are so many choices, but the best in my books is a Timber Frame Garden Insulated Office each and every time, as it takes very little time to erect, and when its finished it looks amazing and it really is insulated, quality and without doubt the best choice.
There are many many companies offering timber frame buildings for the garden, but the ones you must stay clear of are the ones that build it from scratch in your garden, you must only purchase made panels that are weather tight and if it rains will not hurt the interior of the build in any form., you do not want your building to rot from the inside out.. Fungus and rot are harmful to your health and are unseen if covered with plaster board.
We have many phone calls on a daily basis with people enquiring to become a log cabin dealer, yet when they find out we are based in the Baltic’s, they seem to have a heart attack and immediately speak to us as if we are second rate citizens, and that purchasing a building from here (Abroad) means dealing with Criminal Organizations.
Firstly, the Baltic’s, especially the Lithuanian timber business community has a very low opinion on any company, director or owner going bankrupt! Plus our laws are especially tough on these issues.
Our timber here in the Baltic’s is some of the best in the world, which on a daily basis is shipped to all the corners of the globe, our manufacturing plants are the best to be found in Europe, also our labour force is highly skilled.
It is not just rude, but it also shows the arrogance of some in our European community on how they judge Lithuania or the Baltic’s in general. Judge not others till you judge yourself!
As a True Blue English Guy, living and working here in the Baltics, I can honestly say, its a safer, more honest environment to live in than 99.9% of Europe! Also we get the best pick of all the timber in Europe.
The UK for instance, has no forests to speak of, which means import is a great necessity , the UK imports millions of cubic meters of Baltic Pine for shed manufacturing, house cladding, flooring, windows and doors, house building, shuttering, sleepers, fencing etc, the list in endless a year.
Love thy neighbor should now be extended to across borders and respect should be shown to the Baltic’s, as the UK needs the Baltic’s to move forward on a daily basis.
Also I would like to add that it is only Google that has the foresight and understanding of the word community, which is why they rank a .LV url! We could all learn from this!
Please to any further companies wanting to be a log cabin dealer, before you phone, please check your manners, and understand Lithuania is a vibrant, healthy, honest, hard working, clean, understanding, tolerant country, with 99.9% less internal issues than 99.9% of other European countries.. Thanks…BR Kevin..
