As ever, Log Cabins LV moves forward, and today we just signed a deal for 50 residential timber frame buildings for a New Park Home, Park, in the Lake District, which we are obviously very excited about!

Photos of our new very contemporary modern highly insulated timber frame 2 bed, 3 bed and 4 bed will soon be published.

There are so many companies offering residential log cabins, which in all honesty are about as residential as a 3m x 3m garden shed.

When speaking to any company regarding a residential log cabin or timber frame, please make sure that it comes either to the standard of the mobile home act the BS 3632, (the new BS3632 2016) ruling, or to full building regulations, anything else is just a simple, non-residential building-cabin, timber build.

Log Cabins LV is without doubt the best design house of Log Cabins and Timber Buildings in the industry; we design super iconic, workable, eco, affordable buildings, that have quality at their core.

 

Our manufacturing departments are not just the best, but the very best of the best, and with our designs, and their talent, we are able to offer the market, amazing designs, at affordable pricing.

We have been designing cabins and supplying them to our dealer network for more than 16 years, and we still have a few dealers that started with us those many years ago, and this is where our strength lays, keeping core high quality dealerships around the UK, Europe with companies that are solely into selling Timber Buildings.

 

What we have found is that if a dealer sells other products, be it timber supplies, or lawn mowers, nail guns or paint, they sadly seem to only give half their attention to selling cabins, and when you are selling a log cabin, you must give it your full attention, and this is where problems arise.

Mistakes happen, and when mistakes happen, rightly, customers complain and they obviously call us, as they picked the LV brand, and it is we who must calm the waters between dealer and customer.

 

As a company and not many would actually admit to this, we make mistakes, but we try as quickly as possible to put it right. And as the leading company in design and highest quality manufacturing

So to stop this, we sadly as I said asked a few of our dealers that are not solely in the Timber Building industry to please remove our trade mark- ranges and wished them a great future. Some were understanding, others, well,,, were not!

 

We think this was proper and correct. The customer comes first, not profit!

 

And if people want to say nasty stuff about LV then it’s their right to express their inner anger, we are all for it, but we are more in tuned to customer service and keeping prices low and the quality of the workmanship high, than caring about disgruntled ex dealers.

Our reshuffle of dealers have seen our sales sore, but what we have seen is a happier end customer, better built log cabins and lower pricing.

In addition, what we have noticed is a complete stop of phone calls of customers complaining about dealers.

If you are looking for a company that really puts the customer first, please send us an email or give us a call!

Micro Houses

Logcabins.LV has over the years set standards for build design, quality and pricing. Our Micro Houses are not just thin bits of cheap OSB boarding, with external cladding, and flimsily insulation boards, which sadly 99.9% of other micro houses are manufactured from.

When purchasing a micro house, there are many things to take into account. Quality of build. High Insulation values. Full buildings regulations. Structural Calculations. Quality Roofing. Residential Triple glazed Windows and Doors. Graded timbers through out.

Our Micro Houses are not just quality graded timber framed buildings, highly insulated, fitted with amazing windows and doors, and installed by professionals, they are in all intense and purposes a domestic house, just slightly shrunk down in size, but still retaining their quality…

Our Micro Houses are designed to allow first time buyers the chance to purchase a dwelling that will give them the security, that will fair in all weathers, that can be taken down and moved. Micro housing by logcabinslv.co.uk are great for holiday parks, an extra room in the garden or extra income for your B&B, fisheries, camping grounds, for a granny annex, or an over night fully insulated bed room for your guests, the uses for our Micro Houses are limitless!

If you are looking for a quality Micro House, with top quality framework, top quality windows and doors, then our micro housing is the best in the business.

We at logcabinslv.co.uk believe there are way too many companies in the UK offering so called high spec, quality timber frame buildings, built from C16, not C24 graded timber, with cheap thin substandard frame work , badly insulated, and asking from £1100 to £1500 per square meter. This is theft, plain and simple! Greed on a mass scale! If you are a business, and looking to expand, and want true value for money, then please give us a call.

Mobile Homes from logcabinslv.co.uk

Mobile Homes, what are they really worth?

Here’s a challenge, go to eBay, put what ever mobile home you are thinking of buying, look at the price offered to you, and have a look at what a similar one 10 years old is worth and you will be horrified, We Were!!

What we noticed is that if you pay in 2005 £80.000, in 2015 it will be worth less than £20.000. This kind of depreciation is not what most companies write in their literature about safe investment, release equity, and blar, blar, blar!

Looking after our retired population tends to sway on defrauding them from their life’s hard earned earnings. It’s almost like the Sales reps from dreaded Spanish time share clan have invaded the Mobile Home Market! I know that sounds harsh, but building a Mobile Home under the caravan act BS 3632 and charging £80.000 is robbery, and anyone offering this kind of build quality, with that kind of price tag is running all the way to the bank skipping and laughing!

So what is the alternative, how can you keep your hard earned money in the bank, and purchase a quality Mobile home that is not manufactured under the dreaded BS 3632 awful, Caravan Mobile Home specification!

Simple, give us a call, or send us an email, once you see what kind of specification we offer, and the price tag attached, and how we can guarantee your purchase will hold its value, we will then ask you to ask which ever company you have been speaking to regarding buying a Mobile Home to give you a price on our specification! We are certain (1) they can’t manufacture to that specification,(2) and if by change they are able to offer something similar, their price will be double to ours!

We have been manufacturing timber frame houses, Kits, for more than 30 years, our specification on all dwelling homes, be them mobile homes or 2 storey timber frame apartments will out match, out grade, out price all others!!

Quality Micro Housing by logcabinslv.co.uk

Micro Housing is now becoming all the rage! But what is Micro Housing? What should a Micro House offer you? To which standard should your micro house be manufactured from? Should your micro house be manufactured using the old and tired BS 3632 code, or should your new acquisition be manufactured to full building regulations with full structural calculations. Should your framework be built from C24 stress graded timber, or the under dog so frequently used C16 or the much more cheaper common zero grade.

Our Micro Housing is not just modern in design, functional, incredibly well insulated, and built to the highest of standards, it is needed today to help house, students, and the increase in population that can not afford to climb onto the mortgage ladder.

All our framework is to full building regulations, all our timber is stress graded Kiln Dried C24 FSC, the best and nothing but the best!

As you can see our micro housing comes in all shapes and sizes, some we design and others designed by our customers.

But design is not the bee all and end all of a quality building.

Quality Windows and Doors are so very important to your living space.

All our windows and doors are made on a full CNC line, quality second to none.

Our Outside Cladding can be either Siberian Larch or Pine, which ever takes your fancy. Inside can be T&G or plaster board. We are able to deliver them as kit form or a full build service.

So if you are looking for that quality little house on that spare parcel of land you have, or a retreat in the woods, maybe your children are looking to live in the garden, then our micro housing sleep 2, 3 and even 4.

Garden Living is now becoming the norm, sadly too many people sleep in poorly made 34mm log cabins, 12mm sheds or the old brick garage, so our new micro housing offers, comfort, quality, amazing build all of which comes at incredibly low pricing.

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.

Park Home Manufacturers- And what you really get for your money! By log cabins LV ( Chapter 2 )

Dissecting Park Homes and what you really get for your Pound!

Today! The Floor!

We have surfed the web and have taken from 10 different Park Home manufacturers websites build statistics and an average size.

So lets begin!

Firstly the word, High Density 18mm seems to be used a lot to describe ( Chipboard ). We all use chip board, but it needs to be an impregnated and water proof, none of the Park Home Manufacturers stated this!

We then come to the Floor Joists, most companies stated that the size of their floor joists were all under 100mm x 50mm. they all stated they used stress graded timber, but did not state what grade!

Most use Polystyrene as insulation!

And 9/10 use some kind of breathable membrane which is fire and moisture retardant, to the BS 2782, the old and out dated British Standards again!

So sadly as we can see, the floor in most Park Homes sold in the UK is an absolute Joke!

Here is Our Floor..

  • 6 different internal floor finishes available
  • 22mmChipboard on top as the floor base
  • Segments consisting of 45x200mm c/c600 wooden balks; (Graded C24)
  • 200mm KNAUF insulation, and 3 other types of insulation available.
  • Water proof 12mm chipboard underneath;
  • Water Proof -Fire Retardant Membrane ( DuPont Tyvek )

As you can see, our specification of the floor is double compared to 9/10 Park Home Manufacturers. And our pricing is more than half that of all Park Home Manufacturers!
