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!

New BS 3632 Park Homes

 

New BS 3632 Park Homes

New BS 3632 Park Homes

If you are looking to purchase a residential building, be it a park home timber frame or a just a simple timber frame house, then you need to be aware of the new EU building regulations that are coming into force in 2020 December.

These new regulations will completely supersede the now pathetic building regulations and energy efficiency which are now used in the EU. And these new building regulations will change the type of construction used from brick to timber in a big way!

 

As we have seen the government has over the last 4 months changed the BS 3632 adding more insulation to the once pathetic build, but it is still again even though they changed it inadequate and still very substandard, making the buildings that are built under this reformed BS 3632 build regulation cheap and still nasty, and not worth a damn after 10 years.

 

Why the government does not make park homes and static caravans conform to full build regulations is beyond me, must be that someone somewhere has his hand in government kickbacks and election contributions.

 

Whichever, the new EU build regulations cannot be ignored, and I for one will push that all dwelling homes, be them park homes or static caravans, conform to this new build reg. Its about time we started selling buildings that not just increase in value, but will be incredibly cheap to run, and help our environment. I just do not understand why the government is so against making park homes energy efficient?

 

The large park home owners will be very emotional about this, as the days of ripping pensioners off for millions of pounds will stop dead, and it will be the pensioners that actually earn!

 

As we have said in many past blogs, the government needs to start doing more to help the park homeowners and protect their investments.

Most park home structures are absolute crap, the interior looks amazing, but that’s where the con is, the body of the building, frame work, amount of insulation, the quality of build is without doubt, complete and utter rubbish, as most park homes are built with some kind of timber fiber board, and the windows and doors are cheap and nasty, bought on price not quality!

I could go on for an hour telling you why the BS 3632 IS A RIP OFF but I think most of you have understood my feeling with the little I have already written.

 

When you go to all park home websites you will notice one thing, they do not write anywhere actually how the park home is constructed, and constructed with what!

 

Our Timber Cabins-Park Homes- Residential Buildings are built using C24 graded timber; we also use a mixture of different insulations, and all our windows and doors are hand made and are certified by BM Trada.

Our framework starts off at a finished 320mm, our passive panels finish at 474mm, this kind of framework is way over sized to what is offered on the market at present, but its what we consider to be a quality standard panel size.

 

If you are looking for a quality park home to live in that is quite simply better than anything offered on the web then logcabinslv.co.uk is the company to speak to.

Log Cabins LV the sensible choice!
