Residential Log and Timber Frame Buildings

 

Residential Log Cabins and Timber Frame

If you are looking for a Log Cabin, a cabin to live in, or just quality residential log cabin, then please have a look through our massive range of cabins and timber frame buildings.

 

The other day we had a phone call from a woman in the UK she was looking for a Residential Park home to actually go in here grounds.

 

She called one of our LV representatives in the UK and started to ask hundreds of questions, and these questions were all about planning, which our dealer answered honestly, it was then our dealers turn to ask a few questions, so the first was, what’s was her budget, with this, she exploded and said how dare he ask?

 

When the dealer told me of this, he was concerned he had upset a customer, and I said, actually I saw no harm, as how can we judge what she can afford. What build type, what degree of quality if we do not know the budget!

 


Sadly, there are too many con men in this industry and because of this, the public are nervous, and rightly so!

 

I will give a for instance.

There is a cabin company that has just come onto the scene in the UK, their web sites tells people that they can purchase a 4 bed Residential Log Cabin for under £30.000, ( it’s not possible to get a 2 bed residential building for £30.000) and to our horror, there are so many old and vulnerable people actually believing this crap! (Seriously)

 

So when we get calls and people ask us for a residential building which means it has full building regulations, full structural calculations, triple certified glazed windows and doors, and they are told £70.000 plus for a 4 bedroom, they start to shout foul!

Seriously, I get so angry at gullible people! When could you buy a house, which is classified as Residential, for £30.000, yeah mid 1980’s, and it was not up too much in  insulated properties, or quality of build.

 

However, the foul was them being told £30.000 in the beginning for a 44mm supposedly (Residential Log Cabin). Which in reality is worth about 7.000 Euros, the windows and doors that are not certified and the cabin comes to no building regulation standard at all!

 

If you really want the truth, and really want advice on purchasing a quality, log cabin or timber frame building, then please give us a call.

Timber Frame Super Insulated Passive Housing

qulaity timber frame passive homes

timber frame passive housing

Our New Passive Range of Timber Frame cassettes are not solely for the Park Home Market.

Our New and Amazing Super Insulated Timber Panel System is with out doubt the future for all New Dwellings, as we believe setting standards of a quality build at incredibly low prices is the way forward for also the housing market.

Offering the chance for first time buyers to purchase a quality build at a price they can afford!

For too long brick and block with gas central heating, has dominated the landscape, blighting our country with poorly insulated housing, which costs 2 times its actual value!

UK Building Companies have built too many homes that are like chicken coops, treating first time buyers with contempt, and charging them over £200.000 for the indignation.

Our aim, is to offer a modern type structure which is Passive, with low heating costs, as little as £80 a year, which boasts triple glazing as standard, under floor heating, Air Source Heat Pumps, Air Recuperation systems, and so much more for less than a Mobile Static Home.

We believe that this kind of build will dominate the market in years to come, and we would like to shape this market with sensible pricing, with our standard of quality leading the way!

Why we are different to any other company is the standard of our build quality.

Our timber is not subjected to any salt, unlike 99% of all timber brought from over seas.

Our Grade of Timber is uncommonly high! We only use graded KD C24 FSC 45mm x 195mm treated (if required), which in the UK is priced high to push building companies to purchase other lower grades because of the difficulties in obtaining higher grades at sensible pricing. Most timber frame studwork is done with C16, and sometimes sadly, the timber is not even graded.

We are able to offer a full turnkey solution, planning, drawings, base, groundwork, the super insulated timber frame building and every other aspect of the build.

Next we believe in offering not just the best CE approved laminated timber triple glazed windows and doors money can buy, we offer these where other companies would offer cheap UPVC plastic windows- doors.

Also we offer quality security locking mechanisms on all our Windows and Doors, keeping your property secure from unwanted intruders, and mother nature!

The list goes on and on, why our super insulated timber frame passive homes are without doubt the best in the business, if you are interested in purchasing a timber frame, passive building, that really is sensibly priced, please give us a call.

Quality Timber Frame Passive Park Homes-Holiday Home-

Quality Passive Park Homes are as rare as the dodo!

Moreover, finding a Park Home that is built to as high standards as ours is as rare as the labor party’s seats in Scotland!

What we are offering to the public is not just a thin timber frame building with some larch cladding,

Logcabins.lv is offering the behemoth, a tearing down of old perceptions on the what a mobile home is at present, and really bringing to market a Park Home that is so high , in insulation in quality, and tech,  that all companies-manufacturers should and must follow our standards if they want to carry on having sales of any kind!

We are without doubt the leading light in this industry for innovation, quality and price!

Gone are the days when a caravan like structure is adequate, as a population we expect better and the best to be the best, but sadly, we have turned into a throw away nation.

8 out of 10 retired couples who purchase a Park Home expect to loose their investment. We have between 100 to 250 emails a week from couples, asking us for advice on what kind of structure (build type) to purchase, and our advice to them is to purchase nothing at all that is manufactured to the BS 3632!

As a Brit, I must say I am horrified how little we take care of our retired Population, and I am amazed how the government has even allowed this build type to go into law, and then into production, its wasteful of materials, it has no resalable value and it costs us all millions in taxes!

If a retired couple were to purchase a typical Park Home, which is manufactured / built to the BS 3632, it is very likely they will lose their entire investment after some 20 years.

Park Homes built under the BS 3632 devalue rapidly due to the incredibly pathetic build standard, inadequate insulation, and awful windows and doors.

Our thoughts why the Park Homes of today are costing the taxpayer money!

If a retired couple invest 50% of the equity from their property/pension savings into purchasing a park home, and the other was used for living expenses, holidays, grand children etc.

When the time comes for full time care, as sadly that is where we all end up one day, their return on their 20 year old Park Home would be insufficient to pay for full time care, or a holiday in Camber Sands!

If you are looking for not just the best Park Home ever manufactured and on display for viewing, then please give us a call, or send us an email. Our Buildings increase in value, to find out more please give us a call!

Passive Park Homes

Quality of design is the key to longevity!

This is why LogCabins.lv and IformUK have decided to offer the public a Park Home that is not just a cut above the rest it will be the build standard for all Park Homes!

Long have we shouted that the BS 3632 is a build standard that honestly allows companies to steal off our retiring population.

 

Mobile Park Homes are sold for outrageous amounts of money, the specification of these homes is with out doubt laughable.

Too many organizations have fallen foul to this criminal build type and offer solidarity to it! The more kite marks you add, the better it seems.

 

There are over 2000 mobile home sites in the UK, with over 85.000 households living in these parks.

What is amusing is that local authorities are responsible for safeguarding the interests of Park Home owners, Yeah Right……

 

If you visit the main Park Homes website where they are offering (quality) park Homes, or Residential Buildings, you will know doubt come across their build spec.

These build specs on 99.9.9% are laughable.

If you are looking for a Quality Park Home and truly want your investment to be safe, then only we can offer you a Passive Park Home, Timber Frame Residential, that truly is an investment.

 

Log Cabins LV and IformUK will shortly be offering an amazing Passive  Park Home that will blow the competition out of the water, for quality, price, longevity and above all else esthetics.

 

Where Triple glazing, full building regs, high u values, and quality of build will be standard. Nothing is add, its all part of our package!

Passive Park Homes 2015

The Observer wrote a very hard-hitting report in 2013 regarding the bullying and unscrupulous sales techniques used by park home operators.

This is not synonymous to all Park Home Operators, however the way that the actual mobile units, park homes are sold is rather brutish and imposing on the vulnerable pensioners, elderly who are conned into believing that releasing equity from their property and purchasing a retirement home a Park Home is a life time investment. It is either their way (Park Operators) or the highway!

This is why logcabins.lv champion the new style of park homes operators that now want a better building on site, offer freehold, allow individualism, and shun any building that even remotely is built under the dreaded BS3632 (2005).

Residential Homes, be them Park Living, or domestic Caravan Parks, should stop firstly pollution the planet with the hunger for new mobile/ park home units-caravans yearly!

Most caravans, mobile units, park homes manufactured under the BS 3632 (2005), are worthless after 20 years, park home owners want to attract new investment, also part of their profit yearly comes from the sale of new homes. It is a win, win for the Park Operators, and loose, loose for our retiring population.

If you see, a building that has been manufactured to the BS3632 with the wording “compliant”, with a 10 year Gold Shield structural guarantee, you need to question this build quality aggressively. You need to understand exactly what you are purchasing!

 

I am often told that the BS3632 is a cheap mans build, but I must say that if you are purchasing a Mobile-Park Home-or a Unique Lodge for £60.000 to £125.000 and up to £250.000, where is the cheap in these prices?

Logcabins.LV believe that all mobile units, static park homes, park living dwellings, static caravans should be built to last, and that every unit should be subjected to building regulation, and to that we also mean structural calculations.

To manufacture a unit that conforms to building regulations and that is moveable is clearly an art in its self, but we think it should go even further, we believe that all park homes, should have more green credentials, we also think that Park Homes should last a minimum 60 years.

This obviously would increase the price of the park homes, as the manufactures would have to not just up their game, they would have to start manufacturing honestly, responsibly, reliably, and green.

Yet, when we looked at our sums, and calculated a U value of 0.1, with triple glazing under floor heating, full structural calculations. we saw that for all of this a price increase was not necessary.

Also our new panel, which is clad in Northern Siberian Larch, and has a heap of different insulation, which does not just conform to build regulations, but jumps through that 3 times over, giving our version of what a Park Home should be, and is still under the price range 2015 of the dreaded BS 3632.

We have been working extremely hard over the last year to design a park home that does not just say hay look at me, it quite clearly says to the industry, your time is up!

Our passion and dedication to this project has brought to light quite clearly the incredible greed of all concerned who at present supply these ridiculously over priced BS 3632 units to the market.
