Companies going Bust, Thanks Brian!

Sadly there are as always more log cabin companies going bust and today we are speaking about Ireland, and its a bad day for the end customers, as we have been told there are as many as 3 just in Kilkenny.
One in Particular owing many 1000’s and 1000’s. Now this would not be a problem in any way at all if the customer had paid by credit card, but they as always paid by cash, which is the dumbest thing you can do ever.
I know this makes nothing better saying this, but I tell all my resellers to take deposits by credit cards, and the feed back I get is, that in Ireland especially the customers do not want to pay by credit card. Which is madness,
OK here is how the cabin Industry Work, Simple.

The Reseller, Say Leon, calls us here at the factory and asks us if we would sell to his company our cabins, we then give him some of our designs, and they then start selling. Once they have sold a cabin, then its for the reseller, Leon to send us over the deposit for the cabin, once that is done, we then send over the plans, this is for him to take to the customer, and for them to say yes, he then signs the plans off, and then the cabin goes into production, we manufacture and you the customer would get it from the reseller in 7/8 weeks later. Once it is loaded on the truck, and we sign it off and the driver has acknowledged it is on the truck, its then stops being our property, and it is then the resellers. We do not pay for the trucking.

Now the trucking company will ship the cabin with out deposit, if they have done business with the Irish company previously and have-had a good relationship with said company. But If the cabin is put into storage, after say 2/3 months pass by and the reseller has not paid his bills, does not answer calls, emails etc, he will receive 3 emails from the shipping company, these emails demand payment with in ex days, they must pay for this cabin,, if they do not, then the shipping company is in its rights to sell the cabin and collect its money owed. I have heard of shipping companies selling the cabin just to retrieve their owed money! This is completely legal, and the problem is the only person that can take the cabin from the storage is a Judge or the Reseller ( we do not have address for customers of the resellers or any idea who owns what) , but even then its very difficult, as the cabin belongs to the shipper plus Reseller, and the dispute is between them, and not the customer who initially put the deposit down for the said cabin, and because the reseller will not tell the shipping company the owners name, they can not offer it to the customer who bought it off the Reseller. and by that time the person/persons do not believe anyone and call a lawyer, and if you contact the owner, they will only deal with the reseller even if you tell them the facts. Its madness, and we make it plain and simple once the cabin leaves the Factory its not our concern, unless something is wrong with the cabin, which there never is thankfully!
These kind of problems only occur thankfully once every five-six years, and or when the economy starts to take a tumble, then people get desperate and do stupid things.
None of our dealers ever started off just being untrustworthy! It happened because of a reason, and we are always the last to hear about it.
But I think we are the only compnay , unlike all the others to have sacked 99.9% of our dealers in 2020 because of this problem, as we had experienced this in 2007/2008.

We believe we are the best of the best in this up and down industry because we do care, and we do help, but sadly we are only the manufacturer, if you buy from us, its all in our pocket, if you buy from a reseller, once its on the truck and signed for, the company you bought the cabin from is responsible.

WHAT STOPS ALL THIS MESS IS PAYING WITH A DEBIT -CREDIT CARD!


WE ONLY ACCEPT PAYMENTS THROUGH CREDIT, DEBIT CARDS

Buying Direct, is safer, cheaper, and takes a lot less time, we always have trucks moving, , from A to B, and because all the buildings on the trucks are are ours, we can do a drop , drop, drop, if you buy from a reseller, then things get tricky, or it seems that way now, as there is less sales, and most websites ( resellers) just tell lies after lies.

Below is a massive amount of different designs I personally have done over the years, there are many more 1000.s but heres a few to let you in on our world.

Please watch this video, it has hundreds of designs, Hundreds.

Bespoke Designs Welcome…. Always.
If you are looking for a quality timber frame building then do not hesitate to give us a call. And if you are looking for a quality twinskin log Cabin, or one of our unique KI cabins, which we designed, manufactured, and brought to market, sadly they have now been copied by everyone and his dog, and most sadly look like they were made by the Dog, OK i am being unkind, but their doors and windows are awful. And service normally is with out a smile. We laugh when we get your call, why because we love our job, product, you and obviously your reaction to use after its built.

We shit every where, in container to all round the world, and we love the feed backs we get,

Heres some videos…..

Phone Number, and Plans-Photos-Camping Pods

Hi everyone, OK, just a quick Note, so when you ask you will not be upset by my answer.

You want plans, photos and you can not even give me your phone number, well you know what I am going to say. I have so many stupid people call me and tell me they are going to build a camping site, and please can they have our in depth technical drawings of our amazing high quality top of the line camping pods, or our insulated passive housing, what ever, and then they submit that to the council, council say yes because the quality is so exceptionally high, also with safety at the forefront , and the product we offer does not look like a load of chicken sheds on a hill side of natural beauty, and then once the council looks at us they say yes, and then the Holiday Camping site Entrepreneur buys cheap crap, and saves himself 1000’s and puts all your lives at risk.

So we now say no, and no its going to stay, so if your calling me for a plan, it will cost you now a few pennies and you must offer a land line and mobile number. otherwise buy the crap from someone else.

Heres an example of a company that lies and cheats.

This joke of a company do not have my permission to sell my cabins, or use my images, but, Skinner Sheds are a law to themselves. but check out their pricing and they want to sell you a second hand cabin for £2000 more than a new one from us.

Skinners, again stealing our drawings, art work, design, and then over pricing you by ££££££££££££££££££ and its an ex display model! 11.879.00 for a second hand building. Wow, and his windows and doors are shocking, plus ex display means, shrinkage, water damage and stains. all equals, Rubbish for that price.

Yep, this is ours, ours alone, Skinners stole the art work as I said, and he is trying to steal from you £2000 plus with his price, however our cabin to you will have will have amazing windows and doors, his are sadly shed quality, his customer service is like talking to HSBC, and to top it off, his timber is Baltic, he purchases his cabins from a very good high volume mill, but it is a bulk mill, nothing fancy, nothing to write home about. The owner , cool dude, and he makes lots and lots of cabins, who he sells to everyone. Everywhere.

Customers Review Log Cabins

I hate putting up customers reviews, but f… it i was told by my other half to start letting people read what i get sent, i ask for reviews so here is one…

Hi Kevin, just wanted to share with you a few thoughts I have concerning your cabins and the one I bought from you.

Firstly, Wow, it’s an amazing Cabin, and the windows and doors, top notch, secondly the delivery was on time and actually I got back to work, so you were right about just a morning off, Also Kevin I want to say, your cabin was a joy to put together, and my family, yep the wife is now doing something in their in the morning with her mat and laptop, so all in all , amazing, your prices are high, but I will gladly tell anyone about the quality, I did not want cheap and nasty, which is why I did as you said and looked around, and all I found on display in the Sussex and Kent area were log cabins absolutely not worthy of their price tag, in fact I would say most were over priced by £2000 and more judging by what your specification is against theirs.

One company in Kent, his windows were the same as the guy selling in East Sussex, and yes you were right same both were buying from the same shoddy manufacturer, and yes you were right, the timber was Baltic pine, and yes you were right the windows and doors poorly manufactured. And yes, yours are the best, and if anyone is reading this Kevin Langham does manufacture and give amazing customer service and also calls you 2 months afterwards and asks how the build is faring up and how are things going, never have I had that kind of customer service,  and he really does in his cocky care way, f this and b that,  care about his customers, and actually I think cabins more, he asks for photos and tells where problems will occur and just does it right. He’s an honest hard-working good guy!  Best Regards .Tim

Cowboys and Log Cabins.

When I first began telling people about log cabins and the benefits, prices and quality, which was so many years back, oh! 2001, when Dunster House, or people like Waltons and so many of the companies that joined the band wagon, sadly though most for the profit, and hardly any for manufacturing quality. This maybe because 75% of the companies that start selling log cabins really do not see a future in the log cabin industry, they just see, here this year, gone, next, and keep the vat, steal customers deposits and as many as possible and never offer credit card facilities.

If you want to purchase a Log Cabin, and you live in Southern or Northern Ireland, God Help you, one minute your dealer is the gospel speaking saint who knows everything about log cabins, and the next they have disappeared.

What’s super sad, is that you give someone your Company Brand to use because it is the best of the best brand for these particular items, and comes along ( some awful lying tinker) and they have just ran off with loads of cash, you call the Police and no one answers, and customers are looking at us for help, which we want to do, but what can we do if they do not want to pay deposits with credit cards. Time to wake up!

Visa, Master Card, pull them out, ask for a higher insurance base on them, and pay all your deposits that way! Start being smart! Better to pay £100 extra a years and be safe than pay someone through the bank and loose the lot!

Section 75 is an important UK consumer protection law made in the 1970s that means your credit provider must take the same responsibility as the retailer if things go wrong with a purchase. Yet, it doesn’t work on all purchases – just those costing a certain amount:

Pay for something on a credit card £100+ and up to £30,000 and the provider’s equally liable if something goes wrong.

This isn’t the credit provider being nice. It’s a legal protection put in place so that you’re never in the position of paying off debt for something you didn’t receive or wasn’t as it should’ve been. Whether it’s a flight, kitchen, computer or anything else, pay on a credit card, store card or with store instalment credit, and the credit provider’s responsible too.

Imagine it has taken us 20 years to come from obscurity to the number one in design and manufacturing, you design an iconic garden buildings, and show the industry how to insulated a garden log cabin offices, twinskin it etc, and the tinker runs away.

So we are looking awful, and so is your bank balance, not if though you pay your deposit with a credit card.

Then this smiling face comes alone, asks to sell your brand and ( boom) they after 6 months start doing tricky stuff, lying, and not answering the phone, and sending emails to people just lying and lying, , and then, a customer calls and he says he gave money , deposit to the company and he can not get hold of them. what can we say, but call the police. Its theft, and is not a civil matter.

I have said this next part so many times, and i will say it time and time and time again.

PAY WITH A CREDIT CARD, YOU ARE INSURED WITH A CREDIT CARD, USE A CREDIT CARD, AND ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE IN IRELAND. PAY DEPOSITS WITH A CREDIT CARD.

So what happens then, you try and figure out whos who, who can you trust with your Brand, and who can you trust with customers money, and that is truly the hard one.

So we decided 2 years ago only dealers that took payments with credit cards, would sell our cabins, but??? in Ireland, its a problem, the customer does not want to pay with cards, he thinks paying through the bank is safe, well!! Hello everyone , its not, PayPal is safe, GooglePay is safe, Visa is safe, Mastercard is safe, Stripe, etc.

Why do you think high street banks are the best, simple, High Street Banks have hoodwinked you from day one, they are greedy bastards, useless at what they do, make you pay fortunes forever in payback loans and they trash talk everyone who is even better. Remember this when their is a problem, the banks never help, they will take your house from you in a blink, and if you need help they are normally the first to say NO! SEB swedish bank Amazing, Revolut Amazing, and I am sure there are many more smallish banks, but not High Street Banks.

We do not have any cabin dealers at all in Scotland, we sell Direct, so if you are looking for a riveting deal, would like to speak to a few of our customers who have bought direct, then please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Camping Pods for sale

We are house manufacturers, not a shed company or a company that is out just to earn so quick money from making poor quality Camping Pods, as to be honest there are so many about.I saw one the other day it looked like a caravan with a curved inside roof. Seriously, look at this Pod, its awful, it has zero of anything in it, and its a failure to begin with. The company manufacturing these seriously needs to stop and rethink. A camping pod must have feelings and these have zero. they are lifeless. And are designed for one thing, to take money, as many serious campers would not like to stay a night in these. Most campers who are looking for a night in a pod want romantic, and and, not sterile, awful, cheap looking surroundings.

we have many strings to our Cello, and the reason I chose a Chello is because we are educated qualified carpenters, who understand what it takes to make a real timber frame building that will last the test of time. We have also not tried to make our Pods look like, or feel the same as caravans, please we would never use wood as a roofing material,

Here are some really nice photos of our pods and some designs to follow.

This is what we offer…….. Do not be fooled, only this kind of quality is designed and manufaturered by Kevin Langham,, Factory Cabins LTD.

Camping Pod barrel 4.8m x 9.6m Log Cabins LV

 

As we know camping is all the rage now, and camping pods are on the top of the list for most sites owners, and choosing which kind of pod to purchase is a headache, as there are so many companies that produce what was once a quality product, and is now a off the shelf mass produce pile of crap in most cases.

 

When designing a camping pod there is only one thing to take into mind immediately, public safety, nothing else, the safety of the public is mine, my companies, and our production teams first though.

 

Then and only then comes price, as there is no amount of money on this planet that can bring a dead customer back to life, and this may sound dramatic, but where camping pods, or any small structures are concerned in the camping futurity, its sadly a fact that people have died in camping pods.

 

Who is to blame for these deaths, well, its not for me to say, but as a company we manufacture buildings with more than one escape route in case of a fire, we insist that our dealers offer carbon monoxide detectors, and we insist that the camp site owners use them, maintain them, and test them.

 

We also make sure all our camping pods, be them 2.4m x 4.0m or our new barrel pods 4.8m x 4.8m are fitted with CE-Trada certified manufactured windows and doors, and I am not just talking about the glass, I am talking about the actual window and door frame itself. These are manufactured to a very high standard and are designed for the sole purpose of Fire, and also theft.

 

We also insulate our camping pods with TLX silver, which I know now has been copied and put into most cheap version pods, but we also only use KD C24 graded, structural timber, which other manufacturers do not. You will be lucky if their timber is actually graded.

 

If you are looking for a high quality, very unique camping pod, that really is the best of the best, then LV is actually the only company to speak to, our designs are exceptional in every way, and our new barrel pod is the latest of our designs, that takes the pod market onto a different level of quality.

Spilling the Beans on Hiding Twisted Logs. Logcabins.lv

For many years logcabins have been manufactured from just single plank natural fibered timber, (we now have quality laminated timber ) and as we all know timber tends to do its own thing once its machined! Firstly there is the drying process of the timber logs,  then the cutting/machining of the timber, and which machine is used, also are the blades sharp, and  is the operator skilled, This then determines if the timber is  fit for purpose  to be or  is it fire wood! If the timber is cut badly, and the machinist did not follow the grain on cutting your logs for your logcabin , the timber will be twisted, or if the doors of the kiln were opened too quickly! Actually there are so many reasons why timber can twist, so the cheap manufacturers want to hide this problem from the public. So how do they hide from you twisted logs in your cabin walls? Optical illusions, what you thought was decorative  is in fact a way to conceal twisted logs, so! they cut the end of the log, which then gives you zero focus point on the wall log end( the notched area) . Sadly a lot of the manufactures in the UK are using local Pine/Spruce from the local surrounding forests, the timber is very young, which will lead to twisting.Thats one reason why they are cheap! Profit comes before Quality!

 

cabin_000_interlock_cut

 

European Pine/Spruce is a lot older, tougher tighter grained timber! European Pine and Spruce is grown in harsher climats that lead to a far more dense timber Do not settle for less!

All our Log Cabins have a full end logs, we have always made our log cabins with untampered Log ends, as we believe in Quality, not Quantity!

We always check our logs, floor,roof boards plus our windows and doors moisture content on all our cabins, making sure every Log cabin is as best as it can be!
