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!!!!

Log Cabin Hot Tub Building

Yes its a hot tube cover, also its a changing room, also its a place to get away from everyone and everything.
Its on the Isle Man and it stood through many storms, why, we made it.

Russian Forests

I want to make a statement now, see this amazing forest, well some of it ends up in your house, in many different forms, its the Russian well managed, well kept inner northern forest, and the UK does not have anything vaguely that looks even similar to this, and it never will do, because each and every government , cares only about money and zero about forests. And now you are upsetting the man that could stop your house building, gas, and everything else you need. So before you let the media completely brain wash you, look at this picture, think, this is there because President Putin cares about his forests, and then think, if a man loves nature so much, how can he be so bad?

President Lukashenko of Belarus, now this man has grown his forest into one of the best in the planet, and we are very dependant on him for timber.
Sadly though America want as always to upset the world, which they do daily and hourly.

Always pay with a credit card.

Belarus Forests.

Before you start to believe what people say about people, really get to know the person , and not what your told by CNN or BBC, both of which are liars and fraudsters. Get to know the truth before you make judgement, and a man who cares for his wildlife, is never a bad man!

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.

Glulam Log Cabins-Glulam Buildings

When purchasing a Glulam log cabin you must be sure that the company you are thinking of purchasing it from are able to offer you superb quality, that their Glulam logs are graded, and that that grade exceeds C32 at all time. Also that they can prove to you that they have sufficient flat bed presses, not vertical to manufacture the Glulam log on.

We are able to manufacture the following from our engineered Glulam timber…

We are also able to offer our engineered glulam twinskin system.

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Residential Log Cabins

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Park homes

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm Glulam Mobile Homes

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Chalets

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Granny Annex

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Garden Offices

80mm-120mm-160mm-200mm  Glulam  Houses

And so very, very, very much more!!

We are able to offer our glulam timber in the following species.

Pine.

Spruce

Northern Siberian Larch

 

There are too many companies on the internet offering Glulam Log Cabins that are quite frankly rubbish, they stick bits of off cut timbers together and then label the building a Glulam cabin, the correct terminology for this timber is (crap) or finger jointed!

Finger Jointed timber is great for 19mm roof boards, or fence panels, etc, but it is not worthy of the title Glulam Engineered timber.

As you can see by the photos attached to this blog, we are able to manufacture 80m spans with our engineered laminated, Glulam, timber?

80 meters is a massive span, and to accomplish this the Glulam timber used is under incredible strain, and as a company to be asked to build a span of this magnitude, is an honor! But it is also an endorsement of the quality of our Engineered Glulam Timber.

We hate blowing our own trumpet, but who would you rather buy your Glulam log cabin from, Us? Or an unknown?

If your looking for a quality Glulam log cabin, please send us an email.

Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins

We first introduced Engineered twin Skin Glulam Log Cabins to the English Garden market about 8 years ago.

We also introduced them into the Residential Market showing their massive potential and how to save money and increase U values plus offering durability and quality.

There are many companies that truly want you to spend 1000’s more on internally cladding a single solid skin cabin log cabin, just for the sake of cladding their pockets with money on the prefix of giving you a better insulation package.

Most of the time this leads to awful condensation and headaches.

Glulam log cabins which are manufactured by us are not just amazing they are truly an engineering marvel.

Unlike other twin skins solid log cabins in the market, Logcabins.lv have allowed for internal, external movement, and with our new glulam twin skin technology system easily passing building regulations, and getting required U values, we believe that Logcabins.lv will as always push the industry to change their method of build, and invest in better machinery.

The only insulated building available in the garden 8 years ago was either a shed with thin panelised walls, very expensive timber frame conservatories, and of course the dreaded expensive brick and block construction.

Our Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Cabins have over the years changed the way people think about log cabins in general, and their usage.

The Twin Skin Log cabin Design stems from Mother Russia.  Mother Nature in the most northern parts of Russia can reach minus 50 / 60 in the winter, and as lumber is the most freely available building material, cabins with very thick double walls emerged offering amazing U vales, as the internal part of the wall was filled with wood shavings/ sheep’s wool etc.

Our Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins are the best in the UK by far, as our expertise has come from 40 years of experience.

The whole purpose of bringing this building technique to the market place was a passion to offer the best and keep this amazing deign concept alive, but to bring it to modern day standards..

Beware of any company selling Twin Skin log cabins that are not on our dealers list.

The dangers of buying a glulam twin skin log cabin that is not manufactured  on a CNC computerized machine could in the long run be a very expensive mistake. Each and every notch must be inline, and stay true to each and every other notch, a manual machine cannot guarantee this, our investment of 10.5 Million Euros  was needed to make our Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins the best in the UK-Europe offering grading of C32 to C40.

If you are uncertain about anything regarding a Engineered  Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabin please feel free to send us an email enquiries@logcabinslv.co.uk and let us help you.

Do not settle for less. www.logcabinslv.co.uk

Glulam 80mm Log Cabins to live In – by logcabinslv.co.uk

More and more people are looking to put a log cabin up in the garden and live in it! So they take to the Internet and trawl the web looking for suitable cabins, but sadly 99% of people have no idea really what they are looking for, and are fooled by what the top ranking log cabin Internet sites tell them. Triple thermal walls, insulated this and best that, which most of the time is just blar, blar, blar.

44mm log cabins are fantastic for a multiple of purposes, but they are not residential, and no matter what you put as insulation, they are not designed to be lived in!

Engineered Glulam log cabins are the future for the garden, as prices come down, more and more people understand that wasting their money on cheap mass produced cabins, is a waste.

When looking for a cabin to live in there is many factors to take into account, more than just insulation.

So if you are looking for that garden log cabin to live in, please give us a call, or send us an email, and we can put you on the right path.

Specialists in Glulam production

 

Over the years I have spoken relentlessly about quality timber frame buildings, and how it is so very, very important to have grading of the highest caliber on timber which is destined for the manufacturing of Park Homes, Timber Frame Residential Buildings and the like, also that these kind of structures must be strong on there own merit and not part of a whole. Here you can see panels, floating in the air, which shows our true belief in our panel construction and the quality of build.

Big Shout Out To David! Thanks for the Photos……

As I am sure a few of you remembered the 120mm glulam sports pavilion we built last month, here are so amazing internal photos. What you should notice is the thickness of the purlins, central and each side, also the weight bearing purlins running down the middle from back to front. As you will notice these are completely an over kill in size, but we believe in always manufacturing our glulam log cabins to be ready for all things mother nature may think to bruise or batter them!

Glulam cabins from logcabinslv.co.uk are not just quality, they also come with a  remarkable price tag, our bespoke windows and doors and all manufactured on our Weinig new window and door line.

Log Cabins DF Range

 

A big shout out to uk-logcabins for the photos!!

 

Our superb quality, and amazing designs, makes our DF range possibly the best selling log cabin range in the UK. Our log cabins doors and windows in 44mm and above are not just good, they are are fantastic for the price bracket they are in. All are hand made and all are manufactured with care. Unlike 99.9% of companies on the Internet that sell Log Cabins, we are completely different in so far as we do not stock pile them, as stock pilling cabins means they were produced in the slow period, thats over the winter month  and then sold in the summer period, which means your cabin has had 6 cabins placed on top or yours if you are unlucky, also it means the timber has been stressed and this equals all the worst signs for a disastrous cabin.

Logcabins.lv manufacturers all cabins fresh from order, we bespoke log cabins daily, so if you have a desire to have the door moved, or add a window bespoke is our middle name. As you will have noticed we have the largest range in the world of log cabins, sadly most of our log cabins designs have been stolen by most back street mills, ( our clock house log cabins) is one of them, also the Twin Skin log cabin system is another. If you are looking for quality, then there is only really one choice. Do not settle for less. logcabinslv.co.uk

Quality Glulam Log Cabins And Bits of timber stuck together!

What really is Quality Glulam Timber!

Today one of our sales team was asked by quite a clever chap, what is the difference between quality glulam timber and run of the mill gluelam timber, as GLULAM timber is GLULAM timber, and laminated Glulam timber is basically all the same? So I thought I would write a small piece on the difference between engineered laminated glulam logs, and none engineered glulam logs.(or fondly known in the industry as the bits and bob log).

I am not allowed to copy and paste other manufacturers photos into this blog, however, if you browse the web and look, you will see bits and bob glulam logs everywhere, what to watch out for is the amount of knots in each log, and the colour of them, they are usually very dark! But what is the most important thing to do is ask for certification on the log and demand to know the grade! Also what glues were used. Some glues are incredibly toxic!

Glulam log cabins  048

OK..When the timber first comes to our mills, it is already visually graded, the grade on the timber is KD (Kiln Dried) C24. This in the industry is the bench mark for top quality timber, mainly used for timber frame and the like. We then go through the C24 and cut even more knots, splits, wane etc, and take the grade up to C32 or a staggering C40, depending on the project. But! every Glulam Log is  C32 or above when leaving our production line. Which means your glulam cabin is built not from the best, but from ENGINEERED GLULAM…..

glulam cabins

gluelam timber- glulam log cabins-glulam cabins

Now…. lower grade bits and bob ( glulam) log cabins will normally be made from smaller lengths of timber or off cuts, the timber will not be graded, the machinery used is normally antique and the quality of the logs is not great. I do understand why the other manufacturers use these bits of timber, its either burn them, or finger joint them.Finger jointed timber is great for roof board of say 19mm, or floor boards of say 28mm, but for structural usage, NO!

Sadly most manufacturers will not tell you what grade is their glulam which they are using, they will just use the word glulam and hope for the best. If in doubt, ask, and ask to see all the certification, also photos of their plant! Remember Glulam cabins cost more because of their engineered pedigree, do not spend hard earned money on a Bits and Bob Log Cabin.
