There are so many companies offering residential log cabins, which in all honesty are about as residential as a 3m x 3m garden shed.

When speaking to any company regarding a residential log cabin or timber frame, please make sure that it comes either to the standard of the mobile home act the BS 3632, (the new BS3632 2016) ruling, or to full building regulations, anything else is just a simple, non-residential building-cabin, timber build.

Log Cabins LV is without doubt the best design house of Log Cabins and Timber Buildings in the industry; we design super iconic, workable, eco, affordable buildings, that have quality at their core.

 

Our manufacturing departments are not just the best, but the very best of the best, and with our designs, and their talent, we are able to offer the market, amazing designs, at affordable pricing.

We have been designing cabins and supplying them to our dealer network for more than 16 years, and we still have a few dealers that started with us those many years ago, and this is where our strength lays, keeping core high quality dealerships around the UK, Europe with companies that are solely into selling Timber Buildings.

 

What we have found is that if a dealer sells other products, be it timber supplies, or lawn mowers, nail guns or paint, they sadly seem to only give half their attention to selling cabins, and when you are selling a log cabin, you must give it your full attention, and this is where problems arise.

Mistakes happen, and when mistakes happen, rightly, customers complain and they obviously call us, as they picked the LV brand, and it is we who must calm the waters between dealer and customer.

 

As a company and not many would actually admit to this, we make mistakes, but we try as quickly as possible to put it right. And as the leading company in design and highest quality manufacturing

So to stop this, we sadly as I said asked a few of our dealers that are not solely in the Timber Building industry to please remove our trade mark- ranges and wished them a great future. Some were understanding, others, well,,, were not!

 

We think this was proper and correct. The customer comes first, not profit!

 

And if people want to say nasty stuff about LV then it’s their right to express their inner anger, we are all for it, but we are more in tuned to customer service and keeping prices low and the quality of the workmanship high, than caring about disgruntled ex dealers.

Our reshuffle of dealers have seen our sales sore, but what we have seen is a happier end customer, better built log cabins and lower pricing.

In addition, what we have noticed is a complete stop of phone calls of customers complaining about dealers.

If you are looking for a company that really puts the customer first, please send us an email or give us a call!

The UK has about 25.000.000 homes, 80% are of poor design, lack quality insulation, inferior windows and doors, and cost way over the odds

Log Cabins LV can offer quality, design and price, all of which beat the competition easily!

A++ Energy Efficient Homes are not expensive, but no doubt, every builder and his dog will now be hammering away, offering this kind of build type, and prices at the very start will be extortionate. Honesty is in price!!!

Firstly, the panels should come delivered 99% fully made to site, there should be no frame building on site. The stud work in the panel should not be open to the elements Ever!!!!

A passive house, an (A++ Energy Efficient home) should at all times be manufactured in a controlled environment, we have a heated undercover work shop facility where we are able to fully build a 3 storey house, our in house CNC Window and door line offers quality CE approved Windows and Doors every time.

All our timber is C24 graded, KD FSC.

Park Homes and Timber Frame Holiday Lodges

 

Quality Holiday Lodges

Park Homes by Logcabins.lv

Over many, many Years Domestic type Park Homes, Caravans, Mobile Units Holiday Lodges have changed very little; sadly, they are still manufactured to a specification that is quite honestly laughable, and can deprecate as much as £7.500 a year!

When looking to purchase a Park Home, or a Holiday Home, maybe a Mobile Home or a holiday Lodge to put on your farm, or free hold, you need to think twice before purchasing anything that is built- manufactured to the BS3632 – 2005.

What is almost criminal is the way that these units are sold, the word Home is used too frequently in sales material of companies who sell these inadequate piles of garbage. They are not a home from home, your house increases in value, your Park Home built under the BS 3632 does not.

Structural Timbers is another word used a lot in their sales material. Yet, any mention of what graded material is used in the manufacturing is missing from their literature!

In addition, the sentence, We will Build your Dreams, should be replaced with, we will fleece you for everything you have and more!

 Your Park Home should be an investment, it should be your Home, and there is no law that states your Park Home cannot be manufactured to the UK building regulations. The only reason why they don’t is profit!

So why do companies that manufacture park homes use chipboard, plywood, and PVCu windows and door? Why is the unit build quality so bad!

Its quite simple really, they want repeat business, so they manufacture absolute garbage that lasts 10 years and then needs replacing.

I know many companies will refute this, but it’s so simple to find the truth on value of second hand Park Homes, its called ebay!

We searched and noticed that at least 99.9% of park homes loose the value of 80% of their worth in the first 7-9 years!

A quality long lasting park home – lodge needs the ingredients of quality timber, quality insulation, built by a skilled workforce that manufactures not just park homes but houses, hotels, schools and all manner of other type timber constructions.

And what materials you use in the process of the build is so incredibly important.

The UK has a shortage of timber, most forests have long gone, and the UK imports nearly 87% of all its timber from abroad! This means that after the timber has been delivered to the Park Home manufactures based in the UK. It’s costly and normally the grade is not just below par, its awful, and expensive, compared to what LogCabins.LV use.

C24 graded FSC 45m x 195m timber frame work (stud work) in the UK is near on impossible to find, also graded 45m x 145m graded timber also is very hard to find, as most companies use in the Park Home industry 73mm x 36mm frame work, stud work! Which is half of what should be used to give the Park Home strength and longevity.

Also there are many types of insulation, because every Park Home-Mobile Home- Holiday Lodge from logcabins.lv is in reality a bespoke, we look at your budget and our full time architects will give you the best specification to meet your budget.

Below is a normal specification for our Park Homes, Holiday Lodges. This specification is way past anything on offer in the UK. All timber is graded, C24.

Park Homes-Mobile Homes UK

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!
