Quality Log Cabins from LV 2017

Quality Log Cabins


How many companies actually offer such a huge collection of quality buildings?

What’s more, which company can offer such a variety of designs which incorporate

Manufacturing at its best, and to top that off, also offer their buildings with a price tag that makes sense.

So many superstore chains offer plain Jane, off the shelf, cheap quality log cabins, which look great the day you receive them, but become tired and look cheap after the first year.


Here is some sound advice on how to pick a credible dealer to purchase your log cabin from, or timber garden building.


Firstly, find out how long they have been in business ?


It is incredibly important that you believe that they are knowledgeable, skilled enough and will deliver exactly what they proclaim to offer you for said price.


Superstore type log cabin bulk mills will use the words, CE certified windows and doors.

Now this is actionable by trading standards. ( and should be reported if found to be fraudulent)


There are websites that actually put the CE kitemark on their homepages and use words such as CE approved windows and doors.


However when you follow the link to that page, there are zero photos and they make no mention again of the CE kite mark.

Our Deluxe Log Cabins do come standard with CE certified windows and doors. 


This is a typical scam, and it’s done on so many super store sites.


Also how much experience do they have in the Cabin industry.


Now this I laugh at…


OK.. 15 years ago there were 2 companies selling log cabins into the UK, there was us, and there was another, who sadly went bankrupt.


But that was it, no one else, absolutely no one. NO ONE!!!


So what upsets me more than anything is when I read on a website, that companies proclaim to have been in the business 25 years, or even 40, well, I just raise my eyebrows and say what a crock of crap!


It is important to document this, as I love this industry, and because we have been here from the very beginning and also we are proud to have brought many companies into this industry.

Actually there are a few I wish I had never met, helped, and mentored , but mostly I am quite proud at pushing standards up.


There are companies that are still out there using our designs and proclaiming to be LV as they as always-just want to con the public into to purchasing a superstore type building and shouting its an LV. or they will try and persuade the customer to buy some rubbish claiming its better… These kinds of dealers do not last very long.


We have been in the industry long enough to know that what comes around goes around.


So its vital you call LOGCABINS LV on the London number and ask us if a dealer is really our dealer.


Beware of those con men with zero principles, where you money and a lie are more important than honesty and quality.


Next, what is very important is that you do not purchase a mass-produced building from the bulk super store type franchise, and there is a very good reason for this.


Log Cabins that are massed produced really are sub-standard, I can hear all the sellers of the superstore resellers screaming, but hay ho, like I said there needs to be a blog that tells the truth about this industry and really lay it bare.


Factories only have X amount of undercover storage room, and they must store their mass produced buildings undercover, and obviously they stack them one of top of another.

Just say a 6000mm x 4000mm log cabin, weighs about 1.3 tons, and they put 6 of them on top of each other.

Most of the time, it is 8 high.

Anyway, the bottom pack, (6 stack) (this could be your building) has had 6.3 tons sat on it over the winter.


Yes, winter, so the word freshly manufactured building, plans ready in a day and only 25/30% deposit, well sadly you have to laugh, as its all bull!


To mass manufacture, and really get the numbers out there, as bulk manufacturing is a numbers game for mass profit, and dropping prices.

Quality, and really not caring about credibility, they must manufacture in the winter, and they must store in bulk.

I have never liked this type of business, it’s degrading for the good cabin companies, as the superstore type bulk manufacture wastes most of the time good flooring and roofing material.

Also these bulk mill actually rise prices for roof material and floor material, the thicker logs 34mm, 44mm type sizes, most of these companies purchase logs that are honestly fit to be pulp, normally very young timber, from very warm climates.


Definitely not amazing quality like from northern Russian!


The best timber in the world is Russian, I do not care what anyone else has to say, Northern Russian Pine or Larch is the best of the best!

Moreover, lets thank Putin for taking care of it, as in Yeltsin’s time, 1990 etc the forests were attacked savagely.

Deforestation was at that time a very big concern.


It is ludicrous and quite amusing how we attack people who actually stand up for their sovereignty, and want to stop mass invasion and keep identity.

Also not allowing the EU to come marching in a strip bare the very fabric of the country and leave behind nothing but debt! Which has been the case from day one!!

Phew!! sorry I can resist sometimes….


OK… if you are looking for a quality cabin, that will be manufactured and shipped to you with in the month, and bespoke designs welcome, by the best in the business. THEN…..Please give us a call, or send us an email! THANKYOU….

Deluxe Log Cabins From LV

Log Cabins Deluxe Windows and doors

Quality Log Cabins, that is a key word so many companies use to advertise their cabins on the Internet.

But? Is the word “Quality” being misused?


There are so many ways to find out if the log cabin you are thinking of purchasing is high end a budget or a rip off completely on price!


Firstly, just because a log cabin is manufactured in Sweden, Finland or Germany, it does not mean the quality is higher from that of the Baltic’s or Russia.


In most cases, the products coming from the Baltic’s like windows and doors, and log cabins are actually better, as the price is lower, plus the timber is better, and not forgetting we do not have high taxes which means our pricing is normal, not inflated such as Sweden and Finland.


Most people believe that if the price is higher, then so is the quality, absolute rubbish!


Take for instance one company proclaiming to be German, who manufacturer in Poland and they do actually manufacture quite good Log cabins ( this I will agree on), but they sell them to their customers for an extortionate sum, and I mean that quite literally. I will be the first to say this,, they are greedy bastards!


If you take a normal 5m x 5m with standard normal double glazing etc, costing from most other companies would be around £5500 delivered in 44mm log thickness, then our German company will charge £2.500 more, because you are made to believe by their dealer outlets that the quality is so superior than other cabins, this is absolute rubbish.


I personally have spoke to one of the outlets, and it was almost like speaking to someone who was part of a cult! There are too many manufacturers giving advice to their dealers on how to extract high prices from the public, by using words such as, Top Quality, Eco, Durable, FSC, PEFC, Superior, Excellent, and the Best!


So!!!! How can you tell the Crap from the Quality?


Over the years, we have been able to spot companies that are here today and gone tomorrow, we are also able to spot a quality log cabin from that of the Bulk market that litters our market and the gardens of Europe.


Firstly, if a log cabin is worth its salts, it will have only quality windows and doors, yes, I am harping on again about the windows and doors, but they are the most important part of the cabin. Moreover, they must be standard, not an upgrade!


Our Windows and Doors on our new Range of Deluxe Log Cabins are not just absolutely amazing, they are truly the best windows and doors in the industry, and they are fantastic for the price. Also we are the only company that offers them standard now on a Garden Range.

I am sure you have done lots of calling around asking different companies about quality and what you get for the price.


Most will try their hardest to up sell to you and say that what they are offering is so much cheaper than everyone else for the price, but when you actually do the research you will find that their quality is on par to 99.9% of the other companies, and that you are actually being sold a pack of lies and not a pack of quality timber.



So Windows and Doors as we see are the most important part of a cabin, well actually the most important part of the cabin is the roof, but as we use the largest roof Purlins and thick roof boars in the business I am not too worried our roofs will come falling down any time yet, plus all our cabins walls have metal roods in them that come standard to tighten the construction down and make it stiff and secure, and that our 28mm floor board stops that springy bouncy effect it would have if the floor was 19mm which most companies tend to offer, (OK I am bragging),,, Yes windows and doors, are so important.


If you are thinking of running your business from a log cabin, and keeping it warm and dry through out the year, then sadly most log cabins, which are sold as standard log cabin, well 99.999% of the doors are not designed to keep heat in, or cold out!


If you look at most cabins, you will notice that part of the door, unless its fully glassed you will notice that it is made up of T&G timber boards, which are slotted together, now for a garden room, or a shed, it’s a cheap and great way of manufacturing the door.


We have been manufacturing this kind of door since we started 14 years ago, and for cost and ease of manufacturing, its a great way of keeping costs down, and sharing that low cost of construction with the public!


Our CEO has always grumbled about the windows and doors, he has always wanted to offer a top quality windows and doors, he used to shout from time to time that if only could offer a sprayed CE certified Window and Door set with every cabin for a sensible price, then hopefully the bulk manufacturers would have to sit up and listen stop wasting timber and precious resources and offer better!


This has been a burning desire of our CEO Kevin for years, and when we opened our New Production Line, Kevin decided then that all the New Deluxe Range from the log size of 45mm and above would have only have CE certified quality windows and fully insulated quality CE doors, and that we would be the first company to offer these as Standard not an expensive upgrade, and to top it off, we would offer them sprayed to the customers choice.


So to the question at the beginning, how can you know what a quality log cabin is?


Easy… CE certified argon filled double glazed unites in the windows and doors, that your supplier offers these as standard, that the door has an Oak Threshold, and that the tilt and turn mechanism on the windows is a of a residential quality, not push this, pull that and twist this, just to then open it.


You need 28mm flooring; large purlins that sit 90 degrees in the apex, but most of all you need quality through out and to top it off great pricing.


I think you can agree that for any company to compete against CE certified, BM Trada Certified Double Glazed Windows and Doors, Sprayed to any colour you want, and offered in a standard Range of Log Cabins at almost the same price as most rubbish offered on the web !

Yes! We are completely and utterly mad!

Or are we???

amazing windows and doors in log cabins, log cabins LV

Quality Windows and Doors for the best log cabins in the world

garden log cabins-Old Windows and Doors – log cabins lv the number one for windows and doors.

Our New Range of Deluxe Log Cabins are not just manufactured by skilled carpenters and machine operators, or that we manufacture using the finest of all lumber, and the only CE certified tilt and turn argon filled windows and doors, or that our double and single doors comes with an insulated plate, and that you get to choose your personal choice of colour, which is sprayed on, yes! sprayed on to the doors and windows free of charge! (yes for free)..

In this industry of ours, nothing comes free, not advice, quality or for that matter the wrapping that covers your log cabins when it’s delivered.

Why??? Some say its business! I am sure Lord Sugar would say that it is all about making money! Profit!

So how are we able to offer not just the best quality windows and doors ever offered as standard in any log cabin range by any manufacturer at such low costs?

How are we able to offer so much quality for so less!

Well! Its quality simple…. We look at every option, we look at how to manufacture a Quality Log Cabin so its structurally sound, we are manufacturers of Norwegian Log Cabins, Timber Frame Houses, Glulam Buildings, The most sought after Camping Pods , we have our own Truss Manufacturing Plant, and we also manufacturer our own Residential Windows and Doors, which are built under BM Trada and CE Certification.

Quite Simply Log Cabins LV stands for the high end of log cabins and we are the only one-stop shop, but more than that, we offer incredible quality and sincere honesty!

99.9.9% of log cabin manufacturers are only just that, log cabin manufacturers, they might dabble in thin and very under par timber frame buildings, which will not last the test of time, and are 100% not built to any kind of building regulation.

We build our timber frame buildings under TEK 15, which is the Norwegian build standard, which absolutely kills UK building regs for everything and more.

Our New Deluxe Range of Garden Log Cabins are not just the most superb ever-manufactured Log cabins, they are simply the best of the best!

Please have a Look at the photos attached, please notice that the quality of 2001 is the same quality offered by 99.9% of cabin companies today!

Please have a look at 2016, this is what our New Deluxe Range of Log Cabins come standard with!

Quality Windows and Doors are with out doubt the most important part of your cabin, if they are rubbish, cheap and poorly made, that tells you a lot about the entire cabin!

No one has bothered to change their windows and door quality, they do not design new products because why fix what is still selling, the public do not know the difference, and the public do not care, well! The public does care, and the public wants a fair price for a good product!

So when deciding to purchase any log cabin, timber frame building, camping pod, glulam log cabin, please ask for close us photos of exactly what you are getting. If it is cheap, then be prepared to pay twice.

Manufacturing quality windows and doors is not the only thing you need to look for.

Please ask the company you are thinking of purchasing from what else they manufacturer, or is it just garden cabins, no doubt they will all tell you they build houses etc. Ask for references.

We are the only company that actually has a show house on display in Poole in Dorset that is Passive, our ability to provide the customer with exactly what he wants makes us the only company in the UK that can actually provide everything under one heading, and that heading is log cabins LV.


In addition, what has come to our attention is that there are companies offering structural calculations with residential log cabins and timber buildings, if there is not a signature of a certified UK/Irish structural engineer (with his phone number , address and accreditations after his name) on the structural calculation sheet then it is a fraud, please be aware of this!
