New Timber Frame Buildings 2017

 

Here is another one of our finished timber frame projects.

This little beauty is two beds, two baths, fully insulated, timber frame unit, clad in Siberian larch, and meets the UK full building regulations.

 

Unlike the rubbish sold in the UK under the guise of quality control by the government and given a few number and letters (BS 3632).

 

The BS3632 is laughable, our pensioners are robbed blind of their savings,

 

With the grandiose thoughts of safe investment, and living their retirement in a quality building, with in a safe gated environment.

 

But reality is that their hard earned savings, are stolen in a hand shake, and their dream park home, luxury lodge is no more that board, screws and glue, with cheap UVPC windows.

 

A Luxury Lodge / Park Home, should be to full building regulations. There should not be any if or buts about it.

All buildings that are lived in full time should be built to last, and be a sound investment.

 

If you really want to purchase a quality Park Home that really is an investment, built by a professional house manufacturer, then please give us a call.

Twin Skin Log Cabins vs Timber Frame vs Glulam Log Cabins

One of our qualities that we are very proud of and which we demand of our dealers and sales-people is honesty

Yep! Good old fashion honesty, which is a rare trait in this industry!

Sometimes it means that we might lose the sale because we have offered honest advice.

There are too many liars, con men, and complete and utter idiots in our industry with zero experience, and are only out to take your money and run! We need Don on cowboy builders to do a few episodes on log cabins!! (We can supply him with 30 company names straight off)….

OK back to our blog.

We as a company believe it is worth educating the public.

Nearly every day we receive a call from a potential client who wants some particular cabin or other timber building and we just know it is not what he or she needs or simply it is not the best solution for the customer.

Sometimes we even advise to go with brick and mortar instead of timber and log.

If you are thinking of purchasing a timber structure be it timber frame or log it is very important to understand that this is a long-term investment and it is very important for your peace of mind that you are fully aware of what you are going to receive before you place an order.

It is also very important to have a clear vision what the building is going to be used for. Different types of cabins and timber buildings have their pros and cons. Today we are going to lay some guidelines down for your thought process.

–               

–              I want a cabin for my garden.

A Solid log cabin in 34mm for your garden is a perfect solution if you only need a cabin to keep your gardening tools, read a book on summer evenings , or need a spare room to put boxes, or that noisy washing machine and dryer!

Our DF range of log cabins in 44mm with quality tilt and turn double glazing are great for everything, but are not suitable to put the mother in law in at the bottom of the garden!

If you are thinking of building yourself a garden office then what you need is a building with tall windows that allows a lot of natural day light in, this is where a lot of garden office fail, small windows, made from thin material and incredibly cold in the winter, that’s why a twin skin system in 44mm x 44mm is the way to go for any kind of budget priced insulated garden office type structure.. Should you be looking for a garden cabin that is good for staying-living-office-bedsit-granny flat, an all year round we would strongly recommend insulated twin skin which is available in solid timber and also our engineered glulam timber.

 

If you are looking for a permanent dwelling, a home, then we would suggest timber frame.

Over the last few years we have been working tirelessly to bring to market a timber frame panel that won’t just keep you warm and safe in the winter, and cool in the summer, but also a panel that will protect your investment. (I am looking for a knighthood for this one).

With in 3 moths we will have 2 display models in the UK, which we know will upset the Park Home fraternity deeply!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call or send us an email, and please have a long hard look through our website, there is a lot to take in, but every design can be tailored to your needs. Bespoke designs welcomed.
