Timber Frame Buildings and Log Cabins LV


timber frame buildings and Log Cabins LV 1


Have you noticed that from Penrith to Peterlee, Bournemouth to Brighton, companies that offer Garden Buildings, be it a massed produced Log Cabin, or a Low Quality timber frame shed, in the guise of a high quality Garden Office, all seem to offer the public extortionate prices for their wares.

timber frame buildings and Log Cabins LV 2

I get so angry, when I surf these websites, and see prices that seriously should be reported to trading standards.


This week I have seen on the internet a company offering a 6m x 5m low quality, poorly insulated, garden timber frame building, for a staggering £76.000, WTF???? In that price was fitted a Bar, 3 bar stools, and a flat screen TV and not forgetting a toilet…. WOW…..


Not all manufacturers are this greedy or this contemptuous, and do offer fantastic deals, but there are sketchy back street shed-timber frame companies out there that are, and these cowboys should be avoided at all costs.

timber frame buildings and Log Cabins LV 3

It is really worth “YOU” looking around the web and comparing prices, but!!! it is really important to compare specifications. The specification, the build quality is really, very important, and this is where your attention should be focused at all time.

timber frame buildings and Log Cabins LV 4

Some tips to look out for if you are thinking of purchasing a timber frame garden office.

Is the building pre manufactured in a factory, or are they going to build it in your garden?

Is the timber KD C24 CE FSC certified?

Is the building fully insulated?

Is the building manufactured to any kind of certification?

Is the company offering CE certified, Trada Certified, Windows and Doors?

Are the Windows and Doors cheap UVPC?

Has the company owner been bankrupt in the last 3 years?

Has the company bad reviews on the internet?

Is the company a professional house manufacture?

Do they have a long track record?

Can you speak to their previous customers?



If any shed, timber frame, pallet,  company are out there reading this blog….. Time to stop trying to rip off the public, or better still upping your specification and lowering your prices.


If you are looking for a timber frame building, built by professionals then please give us a call.

44mm Log cabins VS Timber Frame Buildings


timber frame buildings residential 1


Once again, I am writing a blog about doggy sales staff, be they in the Lake District, Cumbria, London, Watford, Brighton etc,, selling log cabins with the incorrect terminology.

timber frame buildings residential 4

OK.. I would firstly like to say this is not directed at any one company, but all of them, as most resellers of log cabins, mass bulk super store log cabin resellers, are telling customers that a 44mm log cabin is residential, it is not.

timber frame buildings residential 5

A residential log cabin manufactured in 44mm will never be a residential, or for that matter a cabin where sleeping all year round is possible with out catching pneumonia.


You might ask yourself why I am writing another blog regarding this, as I have written many, and it seems that most people do not actually understand the difference between a garden building and one that is able to be habitable through out the year!

timber frame buildings residential 6

44mm log cabins are designed for one purpose, garden use, be them a workshop, garden office, small garage, play room, what ever, but none the less a garden building.


Too many companies have them on their website, and the wording residential is used to sell them.


How do you attracted a customer, or a fly to a web of deceit and lies, simple, put a price that would make even the strongest minded person rethink sensibility.

timber frame buildings residential 7

So companies use the wording (16.000) ( Residential Log Cabin ) , and hope to attract the honest, law abiding citizen, and get them to part with their pennies, many thousands of them.


And what happens when the building arrives, simple, it’s a large garden shed with awful windows and doors, and absolutely useless when it becomes cold.

timber frame buildings residential 9

If you are looking for a residential Log Cabin, please give us a call, and let us offer you a timber frame solution that will not break the bank, but will pass building regulations, structural calculations, and last decades.

LV DF Log Cabins

Its somewhat embarrassing to air your laundry in public, but sadly the public are the ones in this industry that are to be looked after and helped, not abused or for that matter conned.

I have fought tirelessly to make sure our dealers give their customers a fair deal, and not rip the ass out of the customers wallet, but sadly too many of our old dealers, now gone and selling other mass produced cabin brands, did, so we had a mass clear out.

Log Cabins LV is a great believer in honesty and fairness, we were here from the start and we will be here long after part time sellers like lakeland and other companies have gone, leaving the customer high and dry with no guarantee.

Our DF range of log cabins is sold only by our registered Dealers, which means you do not get knock offs, or substandard low budget, high profit cabins, which is what sadly log cabins lake land and many other companies sell.

So be warned, Log Cabins Lake land , Jonny Staude, is not an LV dealer, and he has absolutely nothing at all to do with us or our brand or our designs, apart from the fact that he stole them.

Jonny, i will make sure that everyone , and i mean every one ever buying a cabin from you will know that giving you money is dangerous. Plus it is known in the industry that your cabin fitter fell of a roof and sadly broke his foot, elbow and and and, its about time when erecting large cabins you actually thought about health and safety! Not profit… Typical cowboy! ( means scaffolding and safety harnesses. I hear the fitters elbow is completely shattered.

Phew, what an awful way to start a day!

Please visit log cabins LV  and purchase a quality log cabin or timber building with confidence.

Fake LV Dealers. Log Cabins Lakeland


FRAUD… Beware of Con Men

fake lv dealers

How can you trust anyone today in this market place?????

I get really annoyed when we part company with companies for whatever reason, and normally it’s something i do not agree with, mostly when they do something that upsets customers. We ask them politely to remove our content from their websites …..Sadly Johnny Staude of lakeland log cabins , log cabins lakeland, and , log cabin superstore,  decided to watermark over our range, images,( registered watermark, trade name)  etc, trying to mislead the customer!

Sadly the market is full of con’s and this is just one of them.

Jonny Staude…. Its about time you grew up!

OK if you look at his website page, you will notice quite clearly that he has watermarked over our images, and logo, ( registered logo) and added his own.

Now in todays world, this is called theft, and you need to ask yourself just one question, if he can steal our product designs (content)  is he the kind of man you would want to give money to.

Time to stop conning people mr Jonny staude of Lakeland log cabins and Log Cabin superstore, and be honest!


More dishonest dealers to follow….

The DF range is unique to honest LV dealers, yet sadly we have not so honest dealers who try con the public into thinking they are purchasing an LV building, when in fact they are purchasing an inferior pile of crap!

This statement is written on Log Cabins Lakeland.

I think you you should stick to selling pallets Jonny Staude.

The DF Range is one of our most popular range of log cabins and have wall profiles that start at 34mm. with a wall thickness of 44mm or above you will receive, as standard, double glazed Tilt and Turn windows that come complete with a very secure 5 point locking system.

Constructed from the finest Siberian interlocking Pine. You can further protect the outside with a micro-porous paint, allowing the timber to breathe, but at the same time doesn’t allow water to penetrate, thus ensuring a waterproof yet breathable protection. To view the different wall thicknesses and specifications view the additional information tab.

Log Cabins LV, we pride ourselves on telling the public the truth.

Timber Cabins To Live In…


Timber Rame Buildings to live in


Our LV blog is back with a vengeance, no holds barred and the truth about what you should look out for and what you should get as standard. And what not to buy.


Firstly, let’s talk about Timber Frame buildings and Log Cabins.


Log Cabins are great for that extra room in the garden, an office, workshop, garage or just a room for the kids to make a noise in. There are so many doggy companies out there in the market that use the word (residential) and none of the standard log cabins are residential, not even slightly.


In fact they do not even come to the lower level building regulation of a caravan, the BS 3632, yes I know you have all heard me talk about this, time and time again, but to those freshly looking for a cabin, and want to live in it, then, forget log, solid log cabins are good for the garden, and sadly that’s about it.


Most of these cabins end up as pallet timber, and we all know pallet timber is the lowest form of timber on the market.


Timber frame is seriously the only way to go for a cabin to live in, if you have a few spare pennies in your pocket, then Glulam timber is also a great, as a log cabin of sorts, its an amazing product, engineered to last for decades.

However, glulam is expensive and can actually cost more than a standard insulated timber frame building which is to full building regulations.


Our timber frame buildings are some of the best that can be bought in the UK, so if you really want to buy a cabin to live in, a quality cabin, that will stand for decades, then please give us a call.

Jolly Cabins Fraud!

Once again another blog telling our clients to beware, we are SYSTEMATICALLY going through our dealers, the ones we think are slack, over charging or just using our content and selling inferior products, we are now spring cleaning….



jolly cabins fraud

jolly cabins fraud


So today,

Jolly Cabins. ( this website is owned by Oliver Courtney. Oliver is not one of our dealers; we do not supply him with LV spec log cabins or timber buildings.


His cabins are not up to our specification, and if he tells you they are LV log cabins, he is lying!

We do not supply and we will not be in the future.

Please email us to if you are in doubt.


Please visit our Web site..Click Here..


Sadly today I must report about one of our ex dealers, and the way he is treating customers using the LV brand.

Over the next few months we will release a list of dealers that refuse to take down our logo and ranges from their site, for the sole purpose of conning and stealing from the customer, and selling them an inferior product,.And using our brand to do it. Sad but true.

We have the largest range of log cabin buildings available in the world on the web, and most companies ranges compared to ours look dismal so they steal ours and try to con the customer.

The first company is based in Holland, and the company is called, this company is owned by a guy called Hans Koole, and he is not a dealer for log cabins LV and has not been for over 3 years, we have tried to have him remove our trade mark, but the dutch law being what it is, they have no time for honest trade mark infringement cases. So we now must put up a few blogs to tell unsuspecting customers that tuinhuizen groep is a con. We have had many many customers in Holland call us and complain about over charging, blackmail and other dubious antics which Hans Koole has been doing. We now warn the public not to in anyway buy or even think of purchasing cabins from this guy. BEWARE. Hans has just taken for a 8m x 8m twinskin 30.000 euro, and called it a residential. Twin skins are not residential, do not comply to building regulations and lastly are not suitable for the elderly in the winter.

Mobile Homes…

Today I had to add a blog just letting everyone know my disgust and horror that mobile homes can cost as much as half a million pounds.

The reason for the disgust is that they are worthless bits of crap, that are flimsy and poorly insulated, and that our old and retired population are being conned out of their life savings to fund a jet set life of a few.

If you are looking for a quality insulated, retirement home please talk to us first, as we do not rip people off, or for that matter manufacture rubbish!!!

Camping Glamping Pod Unit 2.4m x 4.0m

Camping Glamping Pod Unit 2.4m x 4.0m

Our New 2.4m x 4.0m Timber Frame Highly insulated Glamping Camping Pod Unit offer your customers now more than just a rustic feel.

For way too long the glamping camping pod market has pushed the same old, same old, and prices for the same old as are as always stupidly high and of course the quality stupidly low.


Camping Pods are not supposed to be basic, they were designed for the customer who is a semi tent enthusiast, or a couple with children who are watching their pennies, but this does not mean that they need to be placed in some awfully built toilet roll, which has zero insulation and as much character as a sewage pipe!


I find it so hard to believe that the awful copies of the original pods, with their UVPC windows and doors, actually are bought, by campsites.


As always cheap and cheerful enters into the equation, and campsite owners are actually only looking for profit, not longevity of product, or customer satisfaction.


Log Cabins LV as always tries to offer a better product that lasts the test of time and is fitted with CE certified windows and doors, and which are manufactured by skilled craftsmen.

Our new Camping Lodges are not pods, they are so much more than Pods, they are the future of quality living in camping grounds, where the public is safe, and where standards are high!


When companies use the wording CE to describe their windows and doors, you must not get confused by this, as it’s easy. The CE stamp is not just for the Glass, it’s also for the frame work. And the CE stamp on the frame work will have an identification code, this can be looked up and you can find out if it’s just for the glass, or for both, the frame work and glass packages.


And we are the only log cabin producer to actually offer our windows and doors with the CE certification that covers the windows and door windowpanes, also the joinery red glulam framework, as always Log Cabins LV offers not just the best quality, but we also offer the best advice.


When purchasing cabins, pods, timber frame buildings you need to ask all these questions to the reseller……


Our New Camping Units are supplied completely finished to site, they are clad in Northern Siberian Larch, which has its natural oils, and is great at keeping mother nature out!


If you would like to know more about these units or anything else on our website please do not hesitate to ask, or send us an email.

Timber Frame Glamping Camping Pods

Timber Frame Glamping Camping Pods


Glamping Camping Pods are now here to stay, quality levels as always start with cheap and cheerful and go to the sublime.


Sadly, the gene of design seems not to fall far from the tree, and sadly because of this, designs of camping pods tend to be copies of the first originals, and these new designs tend to be somewhat a cut down version to win favor to their customer with lower pricing.


However, as we always say, buy cheap buy twice.


Many camping sites, holiday parks, fisheries, hotels, B&B’s are now looking for something completely different, they want to stand out and offer not just tube like structures, but offer more comfortable surroundings to their guests.


Many now want their glamping camping units to conform to building full building regulations, have fitted CE certified windows and doors, and be completely portable and built to an extremely high standard.


Therefore, as always we have tried our best to design a camping, glamping unit that is manufactured to a very, very high standard, which ticks all the boxes, and crosses all the T’s.


Our Highly Insulated Timber Frame Camping Cabins do not just conform to the UK building regulations, they actually exceed it.


Our New Timber Frame Insulated Glamping Units are not just built to be pretty, they are built to last, with their Northern Siberian External Larch Cladding, massive insulation properties, certified CE residential windows and doors.
