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.

Camping Pods for Sale!



There are so many campsites now in Europe that offer camping pods as a form or retreat for their customer base.

Sadly the camping pod market is stagnant and the designs that come from most mills are copies of copies of copies.

This being the case, the quality of most copy Camping pods is low, and the lifespan is 5 years if you are extremely lucky.

Camping Pods need to be manufactured to a high standard, the reason for this is simple, you are offering them out to the public, and safety needs to come first.

Windows and doors need to be certified, moreover, the insulation levels need to be high, build quality and the timber used needs to be of high quality, and the manufacturer of your camping pod needs to be of house builder standard, not a back street shed manufacturer.

Logcabins LV has over the last 10 years been manufacturing Pods, we have supplied the largest parks in the UK with our pods, Zoos, campsites, and Children’s Adventure Parks.

We have now designed what we think is the most unique- camping pod design in a very long time.

Our New for 2018 Barrel Pods, which start at 4.8m x 4.8m and are 3m in height come fully insulated and designed to give your customers an ultimate campsite luxury feeling.

Yet, they are truly spacious, full of light, and not forgetting the quality of the build and the high end manufacturing production line they come off on.

Our very highly skilled carpenters, 4 to a team, can build one pod a month, which means each and every Pod from LV comes hand built and manufactured with care and attention.

If you would like to know more about our single pods, or even you are thinking of a double pod, please give us a ring!

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.

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.

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.
