Log Cabins and the inside.

Most companies never show the insides of their cabins, and there is a really good reason for this, they look even worse inside as they do out, yeah, once again I jump on the other companies and call them all crap etc, but sadly being the Granddad of this industry, and seemingly being the only one who actually wants to change things, make cabins better and better, not worse, always upping the quality and keeping prices the same, selling direct, through our LTD UK company and pushing the customer to pay with a credit card , for their own protection, is quite a move forward, I am seriously happy with what we have accomplished over this last year, we got rid of the middle man, we don’t need them, they always said the shed companies that we needed them, customers will not buy direct, they are worried, what a load of bollocks, customers love saving 1000’s and getting more and a better cabin, plus excellent customer service. Most shed, companies are just rip off merchants. They resell our hard work, earn more than us, and scream for low prices. They are the scum of this industry completely!

We have our own building teams in the UK that are cheaper than shed companies and better, we have direct line of sales to you, and best part is, we know what your going to get, when its leaving and when it will get there.

Next we use Russian Scotts Pine, Our timber looks Russian, and trust me when I say the grain is as tight as your wallet! North London Humour!

Check Out the quality of this building inside, its built by the best, us, hand picked timber, all cut on a new CNC Multisize Log Cabin Line.

Our Doors and windows as you can see have new for 2021-2022 multi locking system plus each door has 3 German hinges and as you can see quality here is 101%.

Why do people in general come to us, simple, they have money to spend, want the best, understand that we know whats good and bad, want to buy from a Brit, that started this whole industry, want to buy from someone that will tell them the truth, more importantly you are going to feel safe with your choice, forget Resellers, they are here today and sadly your money and them gone tomorrow, we are the choice, you do not ask someone to go to the bank for you, you go yourself, so if you want to spend 1000’s then give it to the girls and guys that are here today, and will not be gone tomorrow.. We can give you hundreds of references, we are also on our banks blog as being one of the best manufacturers to sell to the public by credit card last year, but most people who buy from us, have read my blog, and these people know that I hate liars, and con men, I just want to give you the best of the best as quickly as possible and I am told I do this well! And everyone I work with always come back, especially in the Holiday, Chalet, Pod, Lodge industry.

Finding the Log Cabin that you can afford.

So many things to think of and here is a list for you to think over.

Firstly you are not looking for a cheap crap mass produced log cabin. You’re not, your bank account thinks you should and your telling yourself that a 34mm and a 70mm is the same it’s not, but you don’t, as wasting money is wasting money, so stay away from Resellers 34mm log cabins and crap they are no better than an up market shed, quickly manufactured windows and doors, they fall apart almost immediately.

Our Windows and doors are not just a amazing they are the best, we have spent no
expense on producing them, and making sure everyone in the industry is way way behind us in quality level.

Lots and Lots of companies have already tried to already copy our door design , hinges, quality handles and lots, but copying them is one thing, but getting the quality means you must pay for it, and we have.paid for ours heavily, our doors are not allowed to be put into the cabin until they are completely and utterly stained and waterproofed, they they can be fitted, the reason for this is that they are manufactured from joinery timber, and their moisture content is very low and they will expand and not fit if they are not treated until exposed to the weather.

This is not a cheap cabin, no no means but it will stand its ground for more than 20 years…. FACT!


You are not looking for a concrete foundation that will crack and be damp.
You are not looking for a company that shows you a pretty picture and delivers you a mess. missing bits, broken parts etc, and the sales man , woman , tells you they are the best of the best and you be as snug as a bug all year round, and the walls are 44mm single skin.
You are not looking for a company who cuts its timber from Baltic Spruce or Pine, its quick grown and rubbish, Imedeska and a few other manufacturers, sell baltic pine, they basically bid in the local market for local logs, cut it, dry it, in old uncertified kilns, and then sell it on with mass profit, it splits, it looks nice a white, sandy coloured, but honestly the timber is crap.and it will rot in 7 years with or with out stain, rot protection, the timber is too new to hold any kind of self oil, and then you will remember back to reading this blog and remember when i said buying cheap is foolish.

Customers Review Log Cabins

I hate putting up customers reviews, but f… it i was told by my other half to start letting people read what i get sent, i ask for reviews so here is one…

Hi Kevin, just wanted to share with you a few thoughts I have concerning your cabins and the one I bought from you.

Firstly, Wow, it’s an amazing Cabin, and the windows and doors, top notch, secondly the delivery was on time and actually I got back to work, so you were right about just a morning off, Also Kevin I want to say, your cabin was a joy to put together, and my family, yep the wife is now doing something in their in the morning with her mat and laptop, so all in all , amazing, your prices are high, but I will gladly tell anyone about the quality, I did not want cheap and nasty, which is why I did as you said and looked around, and all I found on display in the Sussex and Kent area were log cabins absolutely not worthy of their price tag, in fact I would say most were over priced by £2000 and more judging by what your specification is against theirs.

One company in Kent, his windows were the same as the guy selling in East Sussex, and yes you were right same both were buying from the same shoddy manufacturer, and yes you were right, the timber was Baltic pine, and yes you were right the windows and doors poorly manufactured. And yes, yours are the best, and if anyone is reading this Kevin Langham does manufacture and give amazing customer service and also calls you 2 months afterwards and asks how the build is faring up and how are things going, never have I had that kind of customer service,  and he really does in his cocky care way, f this and b that,  care about his customers, and actually I think cabins more, he asks for photos and tells where problems will occur and just does it right. He’s an honest hard-working good guy!  Best Regards .Tim

So many Log Cabin designs forgotten in time.

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.

So please enjoy these old shapes, sizes etc.

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!

Log Cabins LV.co.uk 2020

Today we are going to talk about the logcabins and timber buildings that we designed and helped the market to improve week after week and month after month and now years on how our designs have shaped the cabin market to what it is, and now why we are changing the way we do things because of the mess which has formed in the UK because of utter greed.

The Cabin above is called the Clock House Aurora, it is an offshoot, the big brother, the sister of the first ever 5.5m x 4.0 m Clock House in 44mm, which i would like to add we designed. This Cabin was designed by me for one reason, and one reason only, so that the amount of sunlight that came into the clock house log cabin was immense.

Then we came up with Cabins with terraces, which at the time i thought was a novel idea, however, the planners got hold of this eventually and decreed that if the veranda was attached to the cabin it counted as part of the 30 sq m rule.

Of course we have customers that wanted to bespoke our designs, and this triple clock house was a big hit, sadly none of the customers liked showing us the end result, which is a pity as i would have loved Bob in Northern Ireland who was the first to design and buy this one, and then sold it to his customer to have sent some photos over, but dealers being as they are, keep finished projects to themselves.. Greedy Bunch! ( love em really)..

Then their comes our timber frame, Larch Clad, Glulam Beam constructions that come to either full build regulations or fully Passive.

These are without doubt the best money can buy and their pricing would shock you actually, as their quality of build, the workmanship that goes into these buildings is just amazing, we use only the very best C24 timber for construction, Northern Siberian Larch for cladding, Engineered glulam, for roofing, and the windows and doors are all CE , Trada certified. Quality of build is so important to me, and of course design. I have over 7000 different designs which is the most I believe in the business!

Let’s talk small houses, perfect for Airbnb ( Micro Houses) now this is a sore topic for me, as in America they came up with this and claimed to be the first to offer this kind of construction, which i am in disagreement with, as i designed these well before anyone decided to put them on a trailer and drag them around, which honestly unless they have core steel construction, will rattle and fall apart so quickly it’s not even funny. A timber building is supposed to go on a firm flat concrete bed, not on a trailer to bounce up and down the road. This little 2 bed building is in ever respect a quality little house, and a perfect Airbnb

More tomorrow..

Log Cabins- cabins- cabin- timber buildings- quality buildings- deluxe Log Cabins

Are you looking for a log cabin that really is a cut above the rest, a log cabin that truly is built to last?

We say in the industry, buy cheap buy twice, and this is completely directed towards all the bulk manufacturers that manufacture cheap off the shelf log cabins, (if that’s how you describe wasting pallet timber).

 

Log Cabins LV is the only company that actually has a Deluxe Standard Range. I know this is a crazy way of describing a Deluxe Range of log cabins, but they are Deluxe Cabins, fully specked out, with all the bells and whistles and we have decided to sell them as a standard range.

Oak thresholds, Residential Double Glazed Tilt and Turn Windows and Solid, Residential standard doors, fully insulated with CE-Trada Certification.

There is absolutely nothing better offered any where as a standard log cabin.

Plus not forgetting over sized purlins and a cabin that is truly manufactured by one of the most successful, skilled manufacturing plants of log cabins in this end of the World!

 

I know this is going to infuriate all the other manufacturers, as they will now need to go back to the drawing board and work out how they can offer to their customer base such a very high quality standard log cabin with everything we have, and compete (They can’t and won’t)

 

As I know, there aren’t any Log Cabin manufacturers on the market that manufactures Joinery Glulam Residential Trada, CE certified Windows and Doors.

So! Why? Is our deluxe range of Log Cabins so much better than the rest?

 

Firstly, we have more experience than any other manufacturer at manufacturing log cabins, we do not just mass produce 45mm log cabins as a business unlike 99.9% of the industry, we also manufacture Hand Made Norwegian Log Cabins, which are made using chainsaws by our highly skilled staff, Timber Frame Housing, Passive Housing which we supply to the Norwegian market sizes vary from 150 sq meters to 450 sq meters approximately 6 to 8 houses monthly!

Our Camping Pods which adorn so many camps sites through out Europe, we have fitted out 2 parks with over 100 pods, making us the largest camping pod manufacturer in the business.

Also BBQ Huts, our Huts are with out doubt the most reasonably priced BBQ huts in the business.

With their ergonomic walls, makes having a BBQ in your garden positively Fun and incredibly comfortable!

 

Secondly, we have invested heavily into training our staff; we now have highly skilled work force of joiners, carpenters, and operators, plus investment into CNC machinery which then truly turns our timber supply from raw material into positively amazing high quality Windows and Doors-Dwellings-Log Cabins-Camping Pods and so very much more!

If you are thinking of purchasing a log cabin, need help? Want and chat?

Please do not hesitate to give us a call! We have the most skilled dealers in the UK-Europe!
