When scouting the Internet looking for a log cabin, there are so many factors to take into consideration.
Firstly, you must make sure the cabin is manufactured from the correct size components.
Because there is no government control at all on Garden Buildings, you really are in the lap of the gods when it comes to safety.
Component sizes are with out doubt the major issue when it comes to Quality and Crap, Safety and Hazardous.
When we look around the Internet and look at what 90% of Log cabin manufacturers offer (especially the cabins manufactured in the UK where timber prices are a great deal higher than ours and the quality levels of said timber significantly lower) we can see that the component sizes are dramatically smaller.
The first thing to notice is how the purlin is situated in the apex, we seat ours at a 90 degree, cheap log cabins, who bulk manufacture seat theirs at 45 degree’s.
This means Mr Gravity divides half Mr Bulk Manufacturers Purlin in half and offers only the half the resistance.
Moreover, when the Purlin is willfully undersized from the off set, longevity of said log cabin seems very unlikely!
The next vital part of the cabin is of course windows and doors, these should be robust, hand made from joinery timber preferably Scotts Pine, and long life should be the goal from the off set when manufacturing these items.
If you really want to purchase a quality log cabin then you must go through the gallery of the said manufacturer or Out Let! Galleries are a great way of really looking for the quality and flaws.. Also Videos, not the stupid videos of some fat guy with a beard, talking rubbish about how great his log cabin is and just making a sound for 20 minutes.
The Log Cabin industry as all industries has many shades of Great, Good, Bad and Incredibly Awful! Sadly when looking on the first page of Google for log cabins, most on sale are Mass Manufactured over priced finer jointed not worth a second look log cabins.
If you are looking for a quality log cabin, a cabin that is safe, built by professionals, using the very best of timber available, offering hand made double glazed tilt and turn windows and doors, all our floors are 28mm (ask dealers for details).
Do not settle for less! logcabins.lv
As Europe and most of the world experience sever weather conditions, sadly some of the log cabins on sale are willfully inadequate to withstand minus 15 and the torrential rain that seems to blight us regularly now.
Interlocking log cabins in certain thicknesses find it impossible to keep out water, especially if high winds and torrential rain attack the structure relentlessly.
Massed produced cabins which are offered with budget windows and doors are normally the victim, and sadly there are too many companies now offering these. Look on the first page of Google, and have a look at what is on offer, and you will notice that 90% of all the cabins look the same, and when we mean the same, they are clones of one another.
There are up to 10.000 Log cabins a month sold in the UK, and there are 7 companies all mass producing the same styles, competing against one another to get your business, claiming that are the largest, cheapest, offering you to pay low deposits etc. They are trying to catch you whichever way they can, and sadly as all the cabins are looking the same, its price that wins!
But!! Do you really want a mass-produced log cabin?
Do you need a log cabin that falls apart, leaks in the winter is truly only worth half of its sale value?
Its easy to spot a massed produced cabin, the company will have a very small range!
Also bespoke cabins will take 6 to 10 weeks, and the companies will never have close ups of their windows and doors.
If you are looking for a quality log cabin, a cabin that really is top notch, a log cabin that might cost slightly more but lasts a lifetime, then our massive range of log cabins and timber buildings are for you.
Firstly, We have more dealers than any other manufacturer, so if you are looking for that personal touch, we are here!
We were the First ever company to manufacturer the unique design of Twin Skin Log Cabin system, The Clock House, The Garden Office, we were the first company to use CNC machines to manufacture the Interlocking logs, making them water proof and very sturdy!
We have the largest range of Residential Log Cabins, and Timber Frame Residential Park Homes, Timber Frame Mobiles Homes and Timber Insulated Cottages, Insulated Log Cabins, Insulated garden Office, Insulated Log Cabin Offices, Glulam Log Cabins, and our new Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins and so more!

We are able to offer fantastic pricing to companies, which is normally 40% lower than UK standard pricing, yet our standard of craftsmanship timber quality, design ability is way past that available on the market!
If you look around on the Internet, you will notice that we supply most companies looking for quality high-end buildings, we specialize in helping meet budgets and offering the best for your pound! Our Glulam cabins have been used for many different purposes, School Class rooms etc.
What we have noticed and which we will try and eradicate is the Greedy Middle Man, that earns £30.000 pounds + a building, for doing absolutely nothing, who arranges build teams, that actually destroy the buildings and cost both sides money, then runs away when the going gets tough! There are way too many of these shifty individuals in the industry. Easy to spot, they always drink a lot, are always over weight, drive a cheap car and speak loudly! Anyone took offence, ((Sue Me))..
So if you are looking for the honest guys and girls in the industry that have been here from the beginning, and will be here to the end, that do not get aggressive when the going gets tough, and that actually understand all the in’s and outs of timber buildings, glulam buildings, timber frame insulated buildings , then please send us an email with your plans, requests, or possibly you have seen a building in our vast range that takes your fancy!
Today’s photo shows how we can turn, curl, bend, and manipulate glulam timber to form an amazing looking tower!

Residential log cabins
If you are thinking of purchasing residential log cabin from solid logs think again. Time and time again we have had customers wanting to purchase residential log cabins from solid timber, to only find out that the planning authorities have rejected the proposal, because the cabin was made from solid wood. The planning department found it very hard to put it through building regs because of wood movement through out the seasons, cold bridging, splitting, warping etc.
This was the reason why we started manufacturing our log cabins from engineered glulam logs. Glulam solves all these structural instability problems. When the cabin is built it only compresses once and does not contract or expand during it’s life time. Glued laminated logs does not warp or twist, multiple laminations cancel each other’s internal tensions.
Thicker log walls give better insulation for a log cabin but the thicker solid logs tend to split more often due to being heartwood and the splits are normally longer and deeper.
Glulam logs tend not to burn with open flames, they smolder slowly and deteriorate much later in comparison to solid logs that burn and collapse quickly.
All these superior properties of a glulam log cabins vs solid log cabins not only makes it easy to comply with building regulations but also makes our residential engineered glulam log cabins last longer and keeps your investment safe.
if you are looking for holiday accommodation or school classrooms, an office, a garage, a meeting room or any other kind of function room then our glulam logs in single or twin skin are perfect for you.
Glulam log cabins can easily pass building regulations and structural calculations. For more information please send us an email or give us a call.

Log Cabins And Cutting Corners
Bulk Log cabin manufacturers are always trying to find ways to make log cabins cheaper. It is easy to spot these cabins.
Firstly look at the windows and doors, you will see the framework is very thin, the hardware is cheep and the glass is very thin. The floorboards normally are 19mm and the roof boards are also normally 19mm and the purlings are sat normally at 45 degrees not 90 in the apex. This is done because it is a cheaper way to manufacture the cabin.
Purchasing a cheap log cabin means that you will have to purchase another one four years down the road they are not meant for longevity they are not meant to stand harsh winters they are literally a throw away.
This is a real shame as the timber used to manufacture these log cabins is quite good, however saying that profit comes before quality normally from bulk log cabin manufacturers so looking after timber supplies is not foremost on their mind.
What’s quite funny is that we have manufacturers that brag they manufacture 5000 – 10000 buildings a year which works out at if you take the middle ground 20.5 buildings a day including weekends and we are made to believe that quality from these mills is amazing (pull the other one John).
Mass manufactured log cabins are a blight to all that buy them, as we are filling our gardens with rubbish once again.
Purchasing a quality log cabin would only cost possibly 20% more yet you get a building that is hand made with quality double glazed tilt and turn windows and doors all of which are designed to last.

Log cabins LV manufactures massive variety of timber buildings. On our range we’ve got garden log cabins timber frame buildings, residential log cabins, glulam building designs etc.
We categorize those buildings by their structural features, building technologies or quality ranges but in each category, you will find timber buildings that can be attributed to the mix of functionalities and purposes.
Some of them are exceptionally for living in, some work best as the offices; some are ideal holiday log cabins, while some are truly multipurpose.
One of our ranges is unique in all respects. It is very exceptional in design, building technology and purpose… We at Logcabins LV are driven by innovations and we continuously work hard to innovate new and exciting building designs 24/7/365 days a year!.
We have looked at holidays and camping industries, and we saw a huge gap in the lower end of market, but still trying to offer quality accommodation with in the boarders of affordability for the Holiday Parks and Camping sites that were looking to expand into this market.
It’s a hard act to follow, quality and price, and also what we have found is that a very small but hard core cottage industry that has started crudely manufacturing Camping Pods at around the £6000 mark, which is a reasonable price, however, the materials used, and the quality of the windows and doors, also the durability, sadly has turned the camping pod market into an almost cheap shed market! (And sadly camp sites who really do not know good/bad are buying them and putting the public at risk)
When people go out on camping trips they usually chose to stay in either a tent, a recreational vehicle (RV) or caravan, or one of our Holiday Park Residential Log Cabins.
What was lacking was a space that offered comfort, security, and regardless of what Mother Nature decided to offer up, it would keep the occupants warm and dry!
Our Camping Pods are the best of the best, there is nothing on the market that touches our quality, and price!
From there, our creativity led us to designing a separate department for timber frame fully insulated holiday buildings- Cabins- Mobiles-Chalets – And Quality Insulated Camping Pods.
So the camping pod as the name suggests is a relatively little timber (Womb) which blends in well with forests, lawns, beach environments, holiday parks, great for children, great for temporary accommodation, and is exceptionally eco-friendly while at the same time providing very comfortable accommodation for the camp site visitors. We call it The Pod because of its shape, size, mobility (fork lift sleeves built in) and ease of upgrading.
A basic model camping pod, when looked at from the end, is arch shaped. The metal-shingled roof with has a 40-year guarantee spans all the way from the ridge to the ground covering and seamlessly transitioning into sidewalls. It has a double glazed door on one end and a double glazed window on another.
The structural arches and inside paneling is Siberian pine graded timber and the outside cladding is superb Grade A Northern Siberian larch. Doors and windows are all of residential grade, double-glazed, and argon filled, with very strong 5 point locking system stainless steel hinges and tilt and turn hardware. All our camping pod windows are made with micro ventilation openings.
Materials we use in building our pods are hand selected to meet our top standards and give luxurious look and feel as in most of our products.
All camping pod designs in our range are simply derived from this basic camping pod design idea by adding some features but sticking to the original conception. Our camping pods differ amongst each other in floor sizes, windows and entrance door sizes and positions. Bigger camping pods are often wanted with entrance on the side and skylight windows in the roof or standard windows on the sidewall.
This was a short introduction to our range of fully insulated camping pods, for more on this please send us an email or give us a call. Logcabins.lv, do not settle for less!

One of our qualities that we are very proud of and which we demand of our dealers and sales-people is honesty
Yep! Good old fashion honesty, which is a rare trait in this industry!
Sometimes it means that we might lose the sale because we have offered honest advice.
There are too many liars, con men, and complete and utter idiots in our industry with zero experience, and are only out to take your money and run! We need Don on cowboy builders to do a few episodes on log cabins!! (We can supply him with 30 company names straight off)….
OK back to our blog.
We as a company believe it is worth educating the public.
Nearly every day we receive a call from a potential client who wants some particular cabin or other timber building and we just know it is not what he or she needs or simply it is not the best solution for the customer.
Sometimes we even advise to go with brick and mortar instead of timber and log.
If you are thinking of purchasing a timber structure be it timber frame or log it is very important to understand that this is a long-term investment and it is very important for your peace of mind that you are fully aware of what you are going to receive before you place an order.
It is also very important to have a clear vision what the building is going to be used for. Different types of cabins and timber buildings have their pros and cons. Today we are going to lay some guidelines down for your thought process.
– I want a cabin for my garden.
A Solid log cabin in 34mm for your garden is a perfect solution if you only need a cabin to keep your gardening tools, read a book on summer evenings , or need a spare room to put boxes, or that noisy washing machine and dryer!
Our DF range of log cabins in 44mm with quality tilt and turn double glazing are great for everything, but are not suitable to put the mother in law in at the bottom of the garden!
If you are thinking of building yourself a garden office then what you need is a building with tall windows that allows a lot of natural day light in, this is where a lot of garden office fail, small windows, made from thin material and incredibly cold in the winter, that’s why a twin skin system in 44mm x 44mm is the way to go for any kind of budget priced insulated garden office type structure.. Should you be looking for a garden cabin that is good for staying-living-office-bedsit-granny flat, an all year round we would strongly recommend insulated twin skin which is available in solid timber and also our engineered glulam timber.
If you are looking for a permanent dwelling, a home, then we would suggest timber frame.
Over the last few years we have been working tirelessly to bring to market a timber frame panel that won’t just keep you warm and safe in the winter, and cool in the summer, but also a panel that will protect your investment. (I am looking for a knighthood for this one).
With in 3 moths we will have 2 display models in the UK, which we know will upset the Park Home fraternity deeply!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call or send us an email, and please have a long hard look through our website, there is a lot to take in, but every design can be tailored to your needs. Bespoke designs welcomed.
Creating quality log cabins, timber frame buildings, camping pods and many other timber structures that will truly last the test of time, which are built using the very highest quality timber, with the latest technology, producing a product that is second to none in the industry, these are the hallmarks of a logcabins.lv product.
We are each and every month trying our hardest to offer to the world wide market new and exciting products at unbelievable prices, but still offering a quality product.
Here are a few photos of some of our products.
Logcabins.lv will over the next 12 months bring to market a few new and very special products. Firstly we will have on display in Dorset and Grantham in the UK, the UK’s first Passive Park Homes, at a price that will make your Jaw drop.
Our New Highly insulated Park homes-Holiday Homes and not just built to the whimsy BS 3632 build code, or to the highly insufficient UK building regulations, and also way higher than the New Euro 5 code, we have designed these buildings to be incredibly highly efficient, highly desirable, minimalistic, functional, and kitted out with a platinum service pack. Marble/Granite worktops, wet rooms, built in cupboards and so very much more.
There are too many building companies that offer rubbish, hiding behind building regulations, and we are fed up with seeing second hand park homes- mobile homes being sold for 1/10 of their value 10 years after they were purchased.
As we are all aware, each and every year the government is raising U values, and build standards, so we have decided to raise them to a height that is 30 years in front, by doing the math on how the EU-UK decides on build code we believe our formula is ground breaking for this industry, but still keeping the prices low. Moreover, keeping your investment safe.
We will be offering with all our new Park Homes-Mobile Homes EPC certificates..
Our New Range of Park Homes-Mobile Homes have had two qualified architects working 1 year at great cost to us, to come up with what we believe is the future of mobile homes-park homes!
We believe it is sometimes best to pay a little more to get back your investment rather than loose nearly everything. Why purchase a mobile home, park home that will loose its value at a rate of £500 a month?
In addition, do you want your park home to be built as if it were a glorified caravan, or a real timber frame highly insulated house?
We are a House manufacturer, we manufacture everything inside our factory, and the panels are delivered to site finished, which means, Mother Nature cannot harm them.
Our Park Homes- Mobile Homes will be solid in construction, all our timber is CE KD FSC C24 graded which is used throughout? Quality timber laminated residential spec windows and doors, triple glazed, and a massive choice of different external cladding, including Northern Russian Siberian Larch. We also offer many different internal claddings.
All our new range of Mobile Homes-Park Homes will be totally bespoke, which you can sit down and tell our experienced UK partners what you would like, where you would like it and what finish you would like also! Long gone are the days of park homes- mobile homes having small bedrooms, thin walls, pathetic windows and doors, and what we call gas guzzling heating bills.
The Future is our New Range soon to be on display! For more information, please send us an email or give us a call!
Very soon the rules will be changed when it comes to having to purchase your Park Home solely from the owner of the land, and you being allowed to purchase yourself the Park House-Mobile House you want, rather than being blackmailed into buying a pile of crap for a fortune!
I think there will be a lot of parks that will very soon want better homes on their site, not all the same Wendy house looking structures that are wafer thin, and totally inadequate! Its time we protected our retired elderly, not blatantly and openly stealing from them! We all one day will want a nice home to relax and say I did my bit, not have leaking ceilings, and high gas bills! ARRRRR not forgetting…and loose everything we ever made on selling our first, and last house to a Park Home Salesman!
