Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins

We first introduced Engineered twin Skin Glulam Log Cabins to the English Garden market about 8 years ago.

We also introduced them into the Residential Market showing their massive potential and how to save money and increase U values plus offering durability and quality.

There are many companies that truly want you to spend 1000’s more on internally cladding a single solid skin cabin log cabin, just for the sake of cladding their pockets with money on the prefix of giving you a better insulation package.

Most of the time this leads to awful condensation and headaches.

Glulam log cabins which are manufactured by us are not just amazing they are truly an engineering marvel.

Unlike other twin skins solid log cabins in the market, Logcabins.lv have allowed for internal, external movement, and with our new glulam twin skin technology system easily passing building regulations, and getting required U values, we believe that Logcabins.lv will as always push the industry to change their method of build, and invest in better machinery.

The only insulated building available in the garden 8 years ago was either a shed with thin panelised walls, very expensive timber frame conservatories, and of course the dreaded expensive brick and block construction.

Our Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Cabins have over the years changed the way people think about log cabins in general, and their usage.

The Twin Skin Log cabin Design stems from Mother Russia.  Mother Nature in the most northern parts of Russia can reach minus 50 / 60 in the winter, and as lumber is the most freely available building material, cabins with very thick double walls emerged offering amazing U vales, as the internal part of the wall was filled with wood shavings/ sheep’s wool etc.

Our Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins are the best in the UK by far, as our expertise has come from 40 years of experience.

The whole purpose of bringing this building technique to the market place was a passion to offer the best and keep this amazing deign concept alive, but to bring it to modern day standards..

Beware of any company selling Twin Skin log cabins that are not on our dealers list.

The dangers of buying a glulam twin skin log cabin that is not manufactured  on a CNC computerized machine could in the long run be a very expensive mistake. Each and every notch must be inline, and stay true to each and every other notch, a manual machine cannot guarantee this, our investment of 10.5 Million Euros  was needed to make our Engineered Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabins the best in the UK-Europe offering grading of C32 to C40.

If you are uncertain about anything regarding a Engineered  Glulam Twin Skin Log Cabin please feel free to send us an email enquiries@logcabins.lv and let us help you.

Laminated Log Cabins, Good and Bad!

While trawling through different videos on supposedly quality laminated cabins,a few things caught my eye and I just want to share these with you. Firstly, if a company is selling a laminated building, you would think that while they are laminating the logs, they would remove all offending unsightly timber, knots, wane, splits etc from the logs. We as a manufacture only use as a base start C24 which is the highest grade in visual grading for KD FSC Timber, we then cut out nearly all the knots to make C32 or C40, which is a grade most companies in the UK-Europe have never heard of, never mind manufacture with. So while I was looking intensely at other companies videos I noticed something that shocked me, ( pic below) the timber has a huge long dead knot? so how is this laminated? How is it graded? And this is why there needs to be a government grading for laminated logs, as sadly glulam laminated timber is sometimes just bits of old rubbish glued together.

awful logs

terrible laminated logs

Next, looking through the same video, i noticed that one of the main supporting  beams, was as you can see from the photo coming away from the next in line above, these should be connected together with bolts. This means the roof will eventually bow. It also means that this cabin was not subjected to structural calculations, and quite possibly built using the BS 3632 code, which we have said time and time again is a joke! When buying any kind of residential building, be it Log, Laminated, or timber frame, we would always suggest putting said building through structural calcs.

Siberian Larch….logcabins.lv

Hi All! Today I was walking through one of our mills and I spotted some amazing Siberian Larch Glulam sections.

As we all know Larch from Siberia, is always amazing, but the larch I saw today was 100% in quality. Quality Larch I think personally is the best material to manufacture log cabins from, sadly the cabin would cost more than the ground it sat on, but if you are looking for a bridge, or any other glulam timber structural element and it must be engineered, please do not hesitate and send us an email.

Laminated Log Cabins and The Process. Chapter 1

What is the difference between our laminated log cabins and the rest?

Glulam log cabins, or laminated log cabins can be as different as night or day.

Sadly the public fined it impossible to tell the difference between a cheap finger-jointed cabin and an engineered quality laminated log cabin.

So logcabins.lv is going to help you understand the good, and bad also the incredibly very ugly!

The Good!

When looking for a quality laminated log cabin you firstly must look at where the timber is manufactured and from what!

The manufacturing of the laminated timber for your cabin is with out doubt the most important part of all the process.

Firstly, and all this information should be available from your chosen supplier when you are thinking of buying what we call in the trade The Best of All Log Cabins, you need to ask what type of bonding agents they use, and if it is for public domain, and for them to show you the certificates which are in date. There are many bonding agents that can cause serious Toxic harm to humans. This should be of major concern when you’re thinking of purchasing a Laminated Log Cabin.

laminated log cabins   0950

From the beginning of the process, the timber, which is fed into the lamination line, should be a grade quality C24; we can hear many mills scream at that, as C24 is the summit of visual graded timber. It is then fed into the line where many processes incredibly improve the timber quality from C24 to an unbelievable C36.

graded c24 timber

graded c24 timber

Firstly, the moisture content of each and every plank of graded material to be checked.

Then the plank should be resized and edged.

Every plank should have all blemishes removed! The more you remove, the higher the grade.

All timber should start the beginning of the process at a 6m length.

Quality Laminated Timber is made from long lengths of timber, not minuscule bits!
