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.

I am sorry to say, but our Irish Dealer  Leon Vlahovic who is working with our Brand in Southern Ireland, has gone into administration.

Leon found it very hard to deal with the covid, also falling off a ladder, breaking his leg and ankle while out doing an assembly, ( this we found out to be a lie) and sadly the timber prices and the inflation in Ireland, and many other factors, have left Leon unable to continue business.

Leon Vlahovic  will not be trading our LV log cabins from now on. As a precaution, we always say this, please do not give this dealer a deposit etc, as he is not now a dealer of log cabins or timber buildings.

Because Leon Vlahovic has not been arrested or found guilty of any crime, all we can only say that (Leon Vlahovic is not an LV Log Cabins dealer) , and please do not hand him over any money.

( we should add that any customer who is selling our brand, when we think something is amiss we tell the public that this certain dealer does not have Our Brand to sell LV, if he sells something and he has committed a crime, we will make a blog about this)

If anyone is looking for Leon, please give us a call , and we are looking for a customer Fergus Roche, If you are Fergus, please please give us a call ASAP. We have now had the Lawyer of Fergus Roche call us, and we have instructed her not to pay any more money, I must say the lawyer was very very rude, We are also happy to Say we found Emma, and Robbie, and have enough info to offer to the authorities.

As a company with over 20 years of selling to different companies log cabins, in many different countries, and actually getting 2 dealers of ours arrested and on TV for scamming customers, we are quite proud that we are very active in helping people and stop the fraud that is very much part of this industry. But I must say I am fed up with explaining to customers to use credit cards as a matter of payment to the dealer. https://www.logcabinslv.co.uk/blog/2021/11/14/cowboys-and-log-cabins/ this is just one of many blogs i have written, but no one listens.

PAY BY CREDIT CARD………………………………..

Now to today after listening to a lawyer, and the disgusting way she spoke to me, and blaming us here at the factory for another company stealing money off a poor customers, and us trying our best to stop this made me realise that something must be said.

When a manufacturer, who sells 100’s of cabins a year, to many different countries all self employed Dealers who all trade under their own company name , who then sell it on to their customers, and yes they can sell it as an LV Log Cabin, in so far as they are telling the customers that its an LV cabin our brand is the best, we have companies telling their clients its an LV when its not, we have customers who steal our images and say LV, if you read this blog you will see many of them, . As our brand its the best, and also has amazing reviews world wide, and as soon as crooked dealer steals off the customer, sadly we are not to blame, and the lawyer knew this today, as the dealer is self employed and he/she was selling to the customer ( Credit Card) , not us, we had no knowledge of this sale if it was or was not sold, if its a bespoke cabin we are then asked by our self employed dealer ( Leon) for a quote from us to price, and that’s that, the only time we get to know a name is if its quoted for, if the trader wants it, we send his company an invoice and everything moves on from there, he then gives to his customer the cabin if he has paid….BUT… If he takes money, and does not buy from us, we do not know, if he does or does not it’s not our concern. but there is more to this, because if the lawyer thinks we are responsible then all the other contractors are too, and our lawyer friend, the lawyer then must go after the all contractors who Leon was going to use to lay the concrete bed,-2000-2500- she must also go after the-3000 to 5000 Kitchen supplier and 2000 bathroom supplier, and everything else Leon promised, 800 Bed supplier, 800 Boiler, electrician, 1500 plumbing guy, 2/3/4000 depending on what is used roofing contractor, and the suppliers of that, as we supply the bare skin shell, Our price for the cabin is a very small part of the actual cost. Which one of our customers Emma has found, we managed to stop her cabin being resold as the time limit was up and storage and mill costs needed to be paid, which was coming to more than 1000 euros, as leon had stored the building and did not pay the trucking company . As a company this is another companies issues, and legally we have no right in law to stick our nose in, but those that know me, know I do. There were many cabins priced, Fergus, Emma , and and and, luckily the one in stock was Emma in Ireland, and she paid the charge Leon owed and got her cabin.

Getting back to a rude lawyer, that woman made me angry, this year i got TV3 in sweden, FSC, Ikea and Parliament together to speak about the deforestation of trees as Ikea was cutting massive lumps of forest and not replanting. And this woman calls me up and speaks to me like I am the bad guy and it’s all my fault. Where the fault lays is that she knows what to do, and that’s going to the clients address and giving him a lift to the Police Station.

Everyone who knows us knows we hate all this kind of disgusting behaviour, fraud, theft, and misinformation.

If someone takes something from you……. and they do not give it to you, its fraud, clear and simple, and its Police Matter, not Lawyer, pay me money!

If the company goes bankrupt, then it’s down to the liquidators to collect from the estate and hand it out evenly.

And what makes me angry, is that she knows what the customer must do, but she then plays I will save the day and hands out large bills for a job she should not be getting involved with, and she knows this, and she knows who to call, but she wants to earn money from a poor old man who had 30.000 stolen from him. Then she starts threatening people. Which is rather counterproductive, as her motives are only self driven. And against a company that will sue her for defamation. And when we went back to her with some history, she was not interested, acted the high and mighty and seriously our company Lawyers child are more polite.

If you live in Dublin and you go to Colins BMW Service, and they sell you a car, you are buying from Colins, not BMW,we give our Self Employed Dealers warranty on this and that we are not giving to the customer, as the customer is not the purchaser to us, the Self Employed Dealer is.

So you all bough your cabins from Straight Solutions Kilkenny R95TPD9 IRELAND, owner Leon Vlahovic of Kilkenny R95TPD9 IRELAND, and all monies and payments were made directly to Leons Vlahovic company Straight Solutions Kilkenny R95TPD9 IRELAND also all sales and communication to do with your building was done from you to Leon Straight Solutions Kilkenny R95TPD9 IRELAND.

Only we at Log Cabins LV are allowed to use the url.LV we do not offer this out to any dealer.

If Leon owes you money, please contact the Police, not a lawyer. Our Lawyer has told us to ask all customers that were dealing with Leon Vlahovic, who was a full Self Employed Dealer of Log Cabins, Timber Buildings, Ground Works and who bought from us only Log Cabins, he also bought from other companies log cabins to make an official complaint. We have been instructed by Leon of Straight Solutions that he would take care of all his clients, we did not have a list, just a few names he threw at us for pricing, which we have tried to find, we found one, and as I said the lawyer was so incredibly rude. And most have come to us. We have asked them all to report this to the correct officials ( that being the police) who do not charge you money. as in most cases the poor customer has lost already enough through lies and deceit.

We helped Pope Concor a few years back in Ireland track down a very very very bad dealer , and get him arrested for selling awful cabins, and just being crooked through and through, as we hate this, and I am sure I will have a discussion with him on this . Also mention how lawyers are profiting from this misery when there is only one course of justice. This rude woman really has put my back up, and she is promising something to someone she can not give, and charging for it.

Leon Vlahovic is working under the guise of Straight Solutions.

If you are looking for a great brand of cabins, and are fed up with dishonest dealers, please come to us direct. +370 6889 3563

Log Cabins LV apologises for the trouble this man has caused, we can only check someone a certain amount, and the rest we must take on face value. Leon seemed like a trustable guy, he was selling cabins before we met him, but he wanted a better product, I think we can all agree on this, but his smile was a lie.

Anyway, that’s enough of that. Pay by card….. Always for anything under £30.000

Quality that just Oozes out of the grain!

Seriously check out this cabin, really check it out, it’s just simply amazing, and it is actually the best of the best to be offered in this cut throat market, most mills will lie and lie, and when you get the product it’s simply awful. But how are you to know any better, simple, look at my REAL photos, the only touch ups is to my belly in some of the photos, But seriously check out the windows and doors, the quality of the timber, the cut, the finish, the presence, the cabin is beautiful.

As soon as I add quality german hinges to my cabins, sadly there are companies that have already copied my hinge design and added black similar chinese very cheap hinges to try and fool you, you can not mistake ours with this rubbish, they forgot to make the windows thicker, they forgot to add a 5 point locking system on their doors and windows and they also forgot to remove the plastic from his windows sills, as we all love plastic , we use quality aluminum to the windows and doors, and if you notice the windows ( opening ones have 2) they also forgot to make the windows and doors from joinery timber, and lastly .

Plus they forgot to add German quality handles, and if you think the first and last part of the cabin you touch is the door handle, it’s important that every part of the cabin is quality.

Black looks awful, cheap and apart from that, the timber used on this cabin is Baltic Pine as it does not have a huge amount of red pigment.

OK thats a look at the low end of the market.

The Log Cabin Clock House

My amazing Clock House 4.8m x 3.6m is possibly one of the most sold log cabins in the industry, comes in so many different sizes now, but tonight let’s talk about this amazing , wonderful, aesthetic design, and how i Kevin Langham designed this cabin, and 7000 others and put it to my dealerships throughout europe and the UK, and how it has changed from being a super, quality log cabin , to the pile of shit that is now sold to you the customer, it has been butchered by every company, no strength in the roof, no quality of build and absolutely not worth 1/3 of what any company is asking for them from you. I have seem my cabins butchered by everyone, there is no pride left in this industry, it’s all about demand and bulk.

And you the public are driving this madness by demanding them now , now , now.

And what you buy is last years stock, that’s had 10 buildings packed on top of yours, that are old, that are quickly and cheaply manufactured, AND REALLLLLLLLY OVER PRICED!!!

And if a company is telling you to wait 12 weeks, they are getting ready to go bust and steal your deposits. In 2008 they all did the same, and i will never forget how many people called us and asked us where the dealerships had gone with their deposits. that’s why this time round we have got rid of all the dealers, you just never know who can be trusted and who you can not!

This is the first ever Clock House Log Cabin, it was designed by an elderly Royal Marines officer. We assembled this beautiful building in his garden and decorated it with a pot belly stove, and some very comfortable seating, table etc, and it was his personal little cute hide away.

He sent me the design and I had a very long look at it, and i thought, amazing, and that it would sell well, but the problem with it was, the amount of light was miserable, it was dark, way too dark, it felt claustrophobic, and the dorma looked too big. We built his and then, I sat down and thought.

So I sat down and figured out over about 3 months what would be the best size and how to manufacture this cabin making sure it was ethically viable for the amount of timber to be used, to use the off cuts and and and, and i came up with 5.5m x 4m where 4 windows fitted on the front, with a tall double door and two windows left and right. all tilt and turn. Double glazed.

And here is a pic of the first one…

And here you are, the first , ever, ever, ever 5.5 m x 4.0m and I still think apart from my sunshine range, this is one of the best log cabins ever designed. it fits all purposes. And I amproud to stamp my name to it.

Some one asked me the other day who am I!

Easy I am the start, I am the middle my sons, son, son will possibly be the next Langham, to design more and more buildings from materials we have not even invented yet, but trust me when I say the Langham name is the name that brought Log Cabins to the UK, not garden buildings Direct, Waltons, Dunster House or any of the said mentioned, it was Kevin Langham, and I was too stupid to understand that i should have sold them direct to the customers and not to dealers, who have over the last 21 years upped the prices, lowered the quality and completely destroyed the ethos of what i started, I had someone ask me who I was, and i said I had designed a few buildings, what i wanted to say was, without me 99.9 % of designs on most websites of cabins would not be around, ( like clock house) ……. and also who invented the twinskin system, yes ME!

The twinskin interlocking building system came to me when i saw a skilled craftsman put two walls together , one cabin inside another, and use spacers, and then add insulation, i then had an Eureka moment, and I went to our production production master, and told him what i wanted to do, everyone thought i was crazy, honestly, bat sh-t mad! But i pushed on and now 30% of all cabins are twin skin, thanks to a Langham!

Anastasia Log Cabin ClockHouse – 5.5 m x 4.0 m

The Anastasia Clock House which is under 2.5m tall, which falls into the permitted building rights, meaning no need for permission to erect in your garden in the UK is the most superior clock house of its kind in the UK, and the price of this clock house out beats everything in quality, and price.

Let’s start looking at the windows and doors, there are multiple choices, you can have the box standard ones that are amazing quality, but really are the same as everyone else’s, they are waterproof, made to last, but really just normal every day windows and door cabin quality, the same as all the other companies, then there are our Deluxe range which we tend to call the standard range, as most people want them, they cost a bit more but in reality the extra you pay is slight compared to the level of quality you get. Please press to follow link to Doors, Windows.

OK thats the windows and doors sorted, as you will have seen by following the link, Nothing, nothing is better than these in the market to date for a garden log cabin, nothing, and with all the german hardware attached, manufactured with joinery glulam timber, and with our new designed attachment system so no more windows that just sit inside the walls or rock about, our windows and doors screw in , the first time, this system has been available in the cabin industry, I can hear you all shouting why, well it took a Clever Chap, (me) to figure out what was wrong, fix it and make it work.But seeing as I am the longest running company in this industry and was the first to sell into the UK and also design most of everything that is sensible and works in this market, it was only time that i would attack the windows and doors and make them slightly better, actually the best they can be.

As you can see by our drawings here, our under 2.5m clock house is not just built with a strong roof, OH! no its built with a roof that thor could throw his hammer at, and it would bounce off ,with purlins that are 60mm x 160, yes 60×150, not the dreaded 45mm by 130 , and if you count there are 8 solid purlins holding up your roof.

And that’s Not all that makes this Clock House that’s under 2.5m tall so special, its manufactured from the tightest of grain Scots Pine, not some fast growing rubbish which is called ( wastelogs) or as the Companies out there in fantasy Cabin world call Pine.

Precision cut, and using the latest technology we are talking about hand crafted, extreme quality log cabins. And with 33 on the range at the moment you are very spoiled for choice.

Thank you for reading this, I hope you understand that now you truly are looking at the best of the best cabins available in the UK at stupidly low pricing compared to everything else on the market.

Bets Regards,

LV Team.
