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.

Under 2.5m Log Cabins 2016

 

Log Cabins LV as always designs amazing log cabins that have turned a dull back garden into an amazing fun filled space, our Clock House was the first of the iconic buildings, then we designed the twin skin system which turned a cold single skin cabin into a warm, cozy workspace environment.

 

Our DF Range, which is without doubt the best range under 2.5m high cabins in the business, we then designed the New Ki Range, again an amazing curved roof range, completely unique to LV and only LV dealers.

 

We have gone back to the drawing board and really tried our best to come up with a cabin range that allows maximum head clearance, as sadly the government ruling on 2.5m height really does make most cabins which are on the market look squat and dark internally.

 

Therefore, we have designed New for 2016 our Dutch Barn Roof Range of Log Cabins, which are head height friendly.

 

Our New Head Height Friendly Dutch Barn Log Cabin Range are not just the best quality under 2.5m height log cabins on the market, you can be assured these are designed and manufactured by the most skilled and experienced tradesmen in the industry!

Twin Skin Residential Log Cabins

RESIDENTIAL TWINSKIN LOG CABINS

Residential Log Cabins

Residential Log Cabins

 

Over the years we have explained to our dealers about what is a residential log cabin and what is not, some of our dealers listen and others do not.

 

This email is to put you the public straight about what is considered a residential log cabin and what is not!

 

Residential Log Cabins 2016 9962Firstly, a twin skin 44mm x 44m log cabin is not a residential build, it was designed by us at the very beginning to be a 5m x 5m insulated garden office, we offered these garden offices with residential type windows and doors, and this log cabin was the bench mark for quality in insulated garden buildings.

 

But! Sadly this is where it all goes tits up, dealers started to offer our garden buildings as residential buildings, now we do not as a company offer any of our cabins as residential unless the dealer gives us a full set of architect drawings and structural calculations, which comply with local building regulations, we then cut to that.

 

This means if the architect had approved it as a twin skin it would be minimum 80mm x 80mm glulam logs, with a 150mm insulation, vapor barrier and the internal skin is dovetailed into the outer shell, this then keeps down on cold bridging and allows the two walls to move freely from one another, the heating of this would be under floor heating, the walls would be pegged on each and every layer, and metal bars would be used to tie the structure down, this is the only way a twinskin log cabin would pass building regulations.

Residential Log Cabins 2016 9963

Sadly too many companies use the word residential and do not know what the F— they are talking about. Its really annoying, but more than that its criminal.

 

As a company, we will sack our dealers and have done when they mislead the public, and most of the time this is done because of complete greed.

Residential Log Cabins 2016 9964

Any company that’s offering in the UK, Scotland, Northern or Southern Ireland a 44mm x 44mm twin skin as a residential or even the next best thing, to a residential log cabin, well they are lying!!!

Its impossible to get a 44mm x 44mm to residential specs.

Why?

OK….. The walls move too much, they are too thin, you cannot use thick steel rods to tie the buildings down, you cannot peg the walls and they will not pass structural calculations.

Our honest thoughts are that timber frame buildings are the perfect build type for residential cabins. They pass all structural calculations with ease, and as a build type they are quick and easy to assemble.

This is why we have such a huge range available. All our timber frame residential buildings are manufactured to building regulations and are fitted with certified windows and doors.

So if you are looking to purchase a quality residential log cabin, and really want to purchase it from the leading light in the industry then please give us a call.

Summer Cottages

logcabins- summer cottages

Summer Cottage -log cabins

Through out Finland there are a staggering 152.000 lakes, around these pristine lakes are situated many thousands of sauna summer cottages.

Sauna in Finland is seen as the ideal way of rejuvenating the skin, getting rid of toxins and relaxing after a hard days work. Baths are not a common place in Finnish houses or apartments.

Therefore, when the Fin’s travel to their summer cottages at the weekends, or on their annual leave, sauna is a huge part of that vacation experience.

Incorporating a sauna into a summer cottage needs to be thought out well, as the whole family will participate, which means their could be as many as 10 to 20 people enjoying an evening in the woods, having BBQ a few beers, Sauna and midnight swim.

Around the summer, cottages could be many small interlocking log cabins to accommodate friends and family, so interlocking log cabins, or timber frame cabins are very popular in Finland.

Most summer cottages are fully insulated, and some can be as large as 250 sq meters, depending on the plot size! Triple Glazing and strong roofs are necessary due to snowfall, below temperatures, and the occasional bear waking up and foraging, and the most popular route into a cottage by bears is through the roof!

It is very important that when manufacturing a summer cottage one begins to think about what kind of timber to use, in the old days it would have been solid logs, round, hand sawn and quite a crude structure. More refined summer cottage cabins came to fruition in the 60’s and 70’s, and then in the 80’s quality interlocking structures were popping up all over the lakeshores. These are manufactured from quality pine logs and from then until now nothing much has changed in design or quality.

We have looked at traditional summer cottages and believe that by using an Engineered 220mm x 200mm Glulam log, this will be sufficient to keep the cold out, will stand the test of time with the scorching summers and extremely cold winters.

We have taken some time in redesigning a few of the most popular designed summer cottages, and giving them a make over….

At the beginning of February, we will be offering the Finnish public a New log cabin website. On offer will be the whole LV range, including our new Summer Cottage Range.

Do not settle for less!

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.

https://www.logcabinslv.co.uk/blog/2014/08/29/educational-glulam-log-cabin-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.

All windows and doors in all our Twinskin Glulam log cabins are amazing quality, and great value.
