Timber, Cabins and very Big Lies.

TwinSkin Log Cabins are without doubt, without doubt the best way of having a very large insulated structure and are still cheaper than Sips and Timber Frame.

So why do think my twin skins are better, simple, i was the first to ever make one, design them and manufacture and offer to market, and over the years where others that have copied my design have not moved on, i have, i make them better than anyone else, I fit them out with superb windows and doors, and lastly I make sure that my build crews in the UK and Ireland know what they are doing.

Now let’s look at the competition, because if your smart your going to look around and find out what’s what and who’s who, so the first thing to do is make sure the timber is Belarusian or even Better Russian, not quick grown Splitting Baltic Pine or Spruce, Imedeska uses Baltic as do 90% of mills, sadly in the UK your timber industry like gas and other industries have started to fade and fade away, which is sad, but Inevitable, you have given Russia so many sanctions and bit the hand that fed you so often you are now in quicksand, slowly sinking, I think Boris will stop working with the EU on many fronts soon, and make ties, make peace, with Putin, and understand he is not our enemy, don’t listen to any of the left wing bullshit they tell you about him, its all crap.

Russia has without doubt the best timber in the world, forget canada, they mostly have douglas fir and Cedar, which is not particularly good for cabins, Russia Red and White is what you need your cabin manufactured from, and that’s where we come in, unlike most in the world, our timber is Russian, which is why the pine is so Red, it’s tough amazing timber that is perfect for cabins, and it’s all I want to manufacture from.

So many mills like Dunster will say Russian this and Russian that, Blar Blar Blar. Estonian, Baltic Spruce , Pine.

Why am I so mad on Pine, simple it soaks up the treatment quickly and deeply, spruce does not!

Hope you enjoyed that…… And learnt something.

Twin Skin Log Cabins

Twin Skin Log Cabins are not new to the market, we should know, we were the first to design and to manufacturer them and offer them to market which was over 10 years ago, since then every man and his shed has started manufacturing them.

No doubt, they are all waiting for us to come up with something new, so they then can follow the leader!

So to all the manufacturers out there, its time to invest 300.000 Euros, and for once buy a CNC New Machine, and offer a quality twin skin log cabin that works independently but is still connected. I can hear all the mills scratching their heads at that one!!

Our Twin Skin Glulam log cabins are not just available in 80mm x 80mm they are also available up to a staggering 340mm x 340mm.

There is no other manufacturer offering this kind of engineered Glulam Log quality, which is quite possible due to the simplistic, finger jointing machines they have purchased which have huge limitations.

Twin Skin Log Cabins are great for garden offices, residential 2 bedroom cabins, school buildings, class rooms, sport halls, swimming pool halls and the like. However when purchasing a quality twin skin glulam log cabin, you must pick the company very carefully.

There are many companies out there that claim to sell our product; we are now telling the public to email us first so we can direct you to an honest, reliable dealer.

Sadly, our quality has put us very much on top of the wish list for log cabins, and other manufacturers have suffered with falling orders. Sadly it has come to our attention that agents from other cabin brands claim to be able to source our products. So if you are looking for  a quality Twin Skin Log Cabin please send us an email.

At Log Cabins LV we pay lots of attention to our products’ durability.

One of the way of extending woods service time is impregnation, especially in places where timber might be constantly affected by excess humidity or water.

Such places are log cabin’s wall bearers, floor bearers and/or terrace decking bearers.

The impregnation system that we at Log Cabins LV use and which proved to be very effective is called Tanalith® E. Timber impregnated using this methodology undergoes several stages.

Seasoned timber has to be stacked just like for drying except that the size of the stack cannot exceed limitations set by impregnation chamber manufacturer. After loading timber stack in to a hermetic impregnation chamber the stack is pressed top to bottom by a hydraulic press in order to prevent timber boards twisting and warping during the impregnation process, the press releases only when timber stack is ready to be taken out of the chamber.

When chamber door closes and seals air tight powerful vacuum generators start reducing the pressure inside. When the pressure drops to a minimum the whole chamber gets flooded with liquid preservative agent, in case of our log cabins with Tanalith® E. After this the pressure is raised to atmospheric and timber starts sucking liquid in. Then the pressure is raised further to over 8bars in order to force preservative deep in to the wood.

The last phase of pressure treatment involves dropping pressure to atmospheric level, draining out impregnation liquid and creating vacuum again to remove excess amounts of liquid from the wood. By that time wood preserving substances are locked inside wood. This part end by normalizing pressure to match atmospheric. Door is opened and stack removed from the chamber.

Before using treated timber must drip off any remaining liquid residues and dry out. Log Cabins from us comes with pressure treated wall and floor bearers that are pre manufactured to the right lengths and do not require sawing or any other manipulation other than laying them in correct order. However if for some reason impregnated timber were to be cut notched or drilled, one must apply end grain preservative to maintain the integrity of the treatment.

Tanalised® E timber can be safely used in applications with log cabins where untreated timber would not last and rot rather quickly.

Twin Skin Log Cabins

Over the years since we introduced the Twin Skin, Dual Wall, and Insulated Log Cabin to the market, there has been many changes to the first designs.

Critically the interlocking of two walls.

Over the years we have sold a few thousand twin skin log cabins, the garden office being one of the most desirable designs, in this time we have not had one issue with this type of interlocking design with movement!

However we are a young and dynamic team of individuals that make up logcabinslv.co.uk, and we never sit still, we are always looking at offering better for less!

Interlocking Twin Skin Log Cabins are a simple way of obtaining a fully insulated building with out all the fuss of internal cladding, which is a very expensive, time-consuming exercise, and difficult to achieve as solid log- log cabin walls shrink, and expand yearly! Because of this it is very difficult to fit internal walls.

 

The way twin skin log cabins of old were manufactured for residential buildings, there were concerns of movement issues. Therefore, as always logcabinslv.co.uk went back to the drawing board, invested heavily in new equipment and now we have Glulam Twin Skin Residential Log Cabins that will not just pass structural calculations, but also fly through building regulations! As you can see with these two amazing classrooms.

Our Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins are not just the best Twin Skin Cabins available on the web, they are also the only glulam twin skin log cabins with over 300 designs available in many different thicknesses.

The great thing about twin skin log cabins is that you are able to hide all your electric wirieng, also water pipe work between the walls, also a twin skin is so much stronger than a normal single skin cabin.

Which means you are able one to insulated the roof easily (this comes as standard on all twinskin cabins), but also because our glulam log cabin twin skins are made with graded laminated timber your trusses and purlins will be graded and incredibly strong allowing you to attach a quality heavy roof tile.
