Why buying a bulk log cabin is rather stupid!

These are the blogs log cabin bulk resellers, hate!

quality timber buildings

residential log cabins and timber frame buildings

Are you looking for a log cabin, or timber frame building that does not come from an online super store, that is designed and manufactured, then assembled by professionals?

 

If the answer is yes, then Log Cabins LV and its partners are the answer to all your prayers.

 

There are way too many companies out there selling what we call in the industry bulk rubbish, its easy to spot, they all sell the same ranges, they all have near enough the same pricing, and the cabins, buildings look like clones, and this is because they are manufactured in high numbers, each cabin that rolls of the production line is not seen as a true master piece of work, its seen as another 1% in the profit margin for that day!

 

At Log Cabins LV our designs, are unique to us, and yes we have more designs, than all of them cabin design houses put together x 3, its true quite a lot of the other manufacturers have copied our best sellers, as its easier to copy ours than actually sit down and for them to think for themselves.

We are not a superstore, we manufacture each and every building to order taking great pains to make sure it as perfect as possible, and as we never get the same cabins ordered weekly, never mind hourly, which is due to the fact that our ability lies in bespoke manufacturing we do not have stock.

 

This also means that you cabin was not under 8 other cabins, the problems with bulk manufactured cabins is this.

They are packed on an assembly line, so if one bit is missing in one cabin, then you can bet your last pound (euro) that it is missing in all of that high-speed production cycle.

And normally they will make 50 cabins per timber thickness and log cabin size.

 

Most manufactures do not like to do bespoke (anything), they say they will do a bespoke design if you asked and they like to advertise this as it’s good for their SEO (Search Engine Optimization), but when you actually look at the prices they will offer you for a bespoke, and the pressure you get from the sales staff you will see they would rather you purchase a stock cabin, and make it fit than to actually bespoke a cabin for you.

Over the years, we have seen so many companies push bulk-manufactured Log Cabins into the market place, hoping that the public will only look at price and not quality level.

I am thankful that 2008 saw a lot of the working class start to really look at what they were buying and now this section of the public are actually more read up and now spend wisely, and the bulk manufacturing sector of log cabins are now feeling the pinch!

Log Cabins LV has been in this industry longer than anyone, we have seen the superstores of bulk manufactured log cabins come, and now vanish, the public want quality for their hard earned money, and if you really want an exceptional quality log cabin then we have the best dealer network now in the UK-Europe.

 

Remember…..

If a company jumps up and down and says 2 week delivery, then it is a log cabins from stock, or they are so bad no one wants what they are selling.. Whichever the case, beware!

Its better to have a freshly made cabin, that smells of the forest, than one that smells of mould because it’s been stacked with hundreds of others in a damp dark shed in the middle of a field!

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 Residential Holiday Units

If you are looking for a manufacturer of timber buildings or Log Cabins that really understands concept of design and keeping to your budget, then Log Cabins LV is the company to speak to.

Over the years we have left a trail behind us of iconic garden building designs, the highest quality camping pods, our fully insulated timber frame houses and not forgetting our New Passive House Range that does not just conform, its setting its own standard others can’t reach in quality, or price.

Holiday Timber Frame Cabins 6.8m x 15.75m     860We are also able to offer glulam, timber frame solutions that really are quite out of the stratosphere, but that’s what we like to do, expand design and showing at the same time that in timber construction there really are no limits.

Holiday Timber Frame Cabins 6.8m x 15.75m     860Unlike any one is the industry we are able to offer so many different build types that all come up to the highest of quality, and our windows and doors that are certified by BM Trada, also unlike most companies we are able to offer a 20 year structural guarantee to our residential log cabins and timber frame buildings.

Holiday Timber Frame Cabins 6.8m x 15.75m     861

However, more than this is our concepts and designs.

We love to design a building that really does stir the imagination.

Holiday Timber Frame Cabins 6.8m x 15.75m     862We have so many, many companies come to us and ask if we can not just supply but also design them a concept that makes their holiday park stand out from the rest, this kind of project we absolutely thrive on, as it gives us the platform to show case where we think the market should go in insulation, eco and quality of design, but more importantly what the price tag should be.

 

Holiday Timber Frame Cabins 6.8m x 15.75m     863Not long ago we priced up a 100sqm timber frame cabin, one floor, larch clad, triple glazing that offered two bedrooms, lounge kitchen, two en-suits and a utility room, our price to trade was just say £70.000, the reseller in the UK was asking the end customer £130.000, and this is where we get angry! Because the customer expects a building worth £130,000 but the customer is only getting a building half the value in reality! This reseller is not reselling our products any more!

Holiday Timber Frame Cabins 6.8m x 15.75m     864

The sad thing about the UK for instance is the government’s objections to anything too way out there, sticking to a standard, 6.8m x 20m and 3.2m in height! This is of course if you are building to the awful New and improved, (don’t make me laugh) BS3632.

 

Holiday Timber Frame Cabins 6.8m x 15.75m     865A Timber Frame be it a house, or a residential park home should be manufactured to full building regulations,

Not the building regulation that is in force now, but the new one to come in 2020 December, as this new EU building regulation requirement will not just say your house is poorly made, it will say you must retrofit and bring to the New Standard before you are able to sell it. Big Brother At Work!

To be fair not all mills-manufacturers have the investment to purchase a quality CNC window and door line, and there are none that can offer a certified BM Trada-CE- Window and Door set as standard with their cabins, that’s why our Deluxe Log Cabins are simply the best!

LOG CABINS LV 2016

Hi every one, and welcome back to my blog, yes it’s been a few weeks, but even I need a rest!

OK, I am going to start off this years Blog with a moan.

I receive so many spam emails from too many companies selling log cabins.

Now that’s not all bad, but! when they start calling themselves Nordic this and nordic that, you must ask yourself this question, why?

The company in question is based here in Lithuania, and their factories are here in the Baltics.

Now we all know that Nordic means, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland, Norden areas!

It does not mean Lithuania, Latvia, or f–king Spain.

So why does a company based in Lithuania proclaim they are from a Nordic Country!

Easy, to fool the customer into thinking they are from Scandinavia, which is supposed to mean better this and better that! A lie! Actually I am disgusted.

My company is very proud to be working here in the Baltics, I am proud of our workforce and I am proud with what we have achieved here. And I in no way would ever try and palm myself off, or my company as a Nordic Company!

So to those that are ashamed of the Baltics, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, all I can say is…—–k  off to those nordic areas you are so proudly proclaiming you are from and don’t come back!! Your a disgrace to this region!

 

Also stop trying to lie to the British Public! I am one and I don’t like it,

ALSO it’s called false representation and is illegal!

 

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

If you look on the 99.9% of Log Cabin Websites you will notice that if you want to improve the quality of your log cabin just say better windows and doors this is an up grade from most companies, what does this tell you about the company?

Take for instance our Camping Pods, we are the only company to manufacture quality pods that can be used for large scale holiday parks, or adventure holiday centers.

Our ability to manufacture camping pods that are able to take years and years of abuse by thousands of children is very much the test bed of success! And with over 100 Pods in the parks and we have not had one door fail, or Pod leak, this is a tap on the back for us as we believe in our quality, and so do our loyal customers.

 

12% of our sales are from referrals from customers to their friends, and this percentage rises yearly.

Quality Log Cabins from the Number One manufacturer in the World!

log cabins- logcabins- cabins-log cabin

Log Cabins LV the number one for log cabins and timber buildings in the world.

Today (Sunday, yes I always answer the phone) I had an elderly woman on the from Cornwall telling me about her experience about trying to purchase a Log Cabin from Log Cabin Manufacturers. She had been trawling the websites for more that 4 months, looking for a log cabin that would suit her garden and the path she had running up from the house she was also looking for a log cabin that would comply to the under 2.5m rule.

I talked her through our extensive under 2.5m cabins, which took almost 2 hours, she then decided that none of the range would suit her needs, and asked me if Log Cabins LV could bespoke, tailor-made one of the TF log cabins for her.

We then spoke at length at how we would manufacture the cabin to suit all her needs and how long it would take to be delivered to her.

 

But the surprising part of the conversation was her knowledge on Log Cabins, and how she had pretty much read every word we have written on our website, she then commented on why she had picked us as for the supplier, but more importantly why she had nothing good to say about all the other companies.

 

She had asked a lot of the companies’ a few questions, and they all failed, were the Windows and Doors CE approved, everyone one said no, ours are, she also asked if the double doors were insulated, of course no one could say yes, as none of them are, ours are!

 

But what surprised me was that she had asked if the purlins were notched into the apex’s, of course everyone said yes, but we all know that’s a lie, we are the only company that actually notches our purlins into the apex’s making them water proof and tight! This is an expensive and difficult process to do and but Log Cabins LV offers not just quality, but quality of design.

 

The Cabin industry is full of many different grades of manufacturers; they all offer different products, different prices and different solutions to manufacturing.

 

How can you tell if you are purchasing a quality log cabin, well its quite easy, firstly if the company is selling any Log Cabins in 19mm, avoid that company immediately!

 

If the company is always having sales, using words like extended sales, ask yourself this question, why are their log cabins cheaper? Does it say about the mark up on their cabins, are they being honest through out the year, why are they selling their log cabins higher in the summer and then devaluing them in the Autumn?

So what really are you purchasing?

A Log Cabin worth 3000 pounds or a sale cabin worth 2400 pounds?

What kind of company devalues its stock? I know this is a harsh way of looking at other companies policies, but do Aston Martin have sales every Autumn, does Rolex devalue its stock coming to the end of the summer season?

The answer to this is no, why?

Because these coming manufacturer quality, and quality comes with amazing designs, and above all else, the worth factor!

Our Log Cabins are Worth More!

They truly are, and our prices should be higher, but because the average man does not understand a log cabin from a shed, and only see’s the price, and nearly everyone has copied our designs, its almost impossible for the public to distinguish quality from crap!

 

However, my well read Elderly Woman on phone this morning did, and she said that the only reason she would buy a log cabin from Log Cabins LV is that she knew she was purchasing a quality log cabin and not a mass-produced pile of Pooh! (her words).

 

I would like to add one more point to this topic of the true worth of log cabins.

There are companies in Germany, who manufacturer in Poland, and a particular company comes to mind that do not just sell log cabins for hundreds, but thousands and thousands. And are these cabins worth the money, the answer to this is no, but there are some out there that want to purchase what they think is a cut above the rest, well, they are also being fooled.

 

Our New Range of Windows and Doors are the BEST IN THE MARKET, we are the only company to actually notch our purlins into the APEX, and also we are the only company who offers any colour you wish your windows and doors to be sprayed free.

 

Plus we are the only company that is CE approved to manufacture 44mm Log Cabin tilt and turn argon filled double glazed windows and doors from quality JOINERY TIMBER.

Now this might sound like a load of hog wash to you, but remember this, windows and doors are really the life of the cabin, once they fail, so does the cabin, and we will guarantee ours for 2 years, no other company will offer this. Please ask our dealers regarding our new range of windows and doors. The best in the industry!

Log Cabins LV really is the only sensible choice.

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.

timber frame buildings

quality timber frame fully insulated buildings

 

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.

Passive timber frame housing

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.

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.

Log Cabins LV and Russian Timber!

Bespoke timber frame resutrant  25

So many people ask us why we do not manufacture in the UK, the answer to this is simple, the UK have zero suitable quality timber, and 80% of the timber in the UK comes from the Baltic’s or Russia, the other 20% is from Scotland, which is not suitable for quality timber buildings as it is too quick grown, and too young.

Below is a few facts about Russia and the amazing timber which comes from Russia.

At seventy times the size of the United Kingdom but with just over twice the population Russia remains one of the world’s great wilderness. It sprawls across ten thousand kilometers reaching nearly halfway around the world.

Russia is a northern country with the majority of its area above the latitude of 50 degrees north. The Arctic Circle runs the entire length through the middle of the northern half of the country.

Russia has more than a fifth of the world’s forests, which makes it the largest forest country in the world. According to the FAO study, by 2030 the forest area in the Russian Federation will increase by almost 1.5 percent from 882 million hectares in 2010 to 895 million hectares, this is an annual increase of 660 000 hectares.

Since 1956, total area, growing stock and forest increment in the Russian Federation have tended to increase; however, average growing stock per hectare and average age have decreased noticeably. Gradual rejuvenation of forests has taken place due to felling, forest fires and the transfer of agricultural land covered by young growth to forest land. In particular, many young growth areas were transferred between 2003 and 2008, resulting in an increase of land areas under forests by 20 million hectares.

The decrease in growing stock per hectare can be explained by lag between assessment of forest area and growing stock in the Russian Federation. Thus, between 1956 and 2010, forest area increased by 15.3 percent, while total forest growing stock increased by 9.6 percent. Covering nearly 10 percent to the planet’s land mass is Siberia synonymous with punishing cold where temperatures can plunge to minus 70 degrees Celsius.

More than half of the Siberia, covered with coniferous forest – taiga also known as snow forest. The largest forest in the world consisting mostly of pine spruce, fir and larch, stretches seven million square kilometres. Russia’s taiga forest makes up to or even more than half of the world’s coniferous forests. The Russian taiga has subarctic climate where temperature ranges during the year cam be dramatic but the long and cold winter is the main feature.

Due to the cold weather and permafrost, soil in taiga is young and thin. In coldest eastern Siberia taiga’s vast majority of forest land is shallow rooted larch forest populated by Siberian larch (Larix sibirica), Dahurian Larch (L. gmelinii) and hybrid of previous two Larix × czekanowskii. Other areas are mix of larch and various kinds of spruces and pines. Coniferous trees are the dominant plants of the coniferous forest biome however taiga also have some small-leaved deciduous trees like birch, alder, willow, and poplar. Southernmost parts of the taiga become mixed forest with trees like oak, maple, elm and lime scattered among the conifers as summers there become longer and warmer in comparison to northern taiga.

Subarctic climate is also the reason why taiga’s trees are so valuable for construction timber production. Cold and moist weather is an extremely harsh environment for trees to grow. Even though during millennia of evolutionary path, species adapted to survive unfriendly climate, growth is slow and difficult. Competing with each other trees in the forest stretch straight up to get the most sunlight during short summers and they shed lower branches to conserve energy and nutrients that in slow maturing soils are extremely scarce.

The conifers produce large amounts of resins that are crucial to protect the tree from freezing during winters when air temperature drops way below freezing point and soil is in the intermittent permafrost. Timber milled from these trees is hard, robust and durable. Grain in timber is more straight and compact due to slow growth when compared to softwood timber from warmer climates. It has less knots and much more heartwood than sapwood.

Most of the timber we manufacture our log cabins and timber frame buildings from comes from Russian forests. There are several reasons for that. One of which is that most countries in the Europe no longer have forests accessible for logging due to non-viable logging practices in the past and transfer of forest lands to agriculture plains.

Simply put European countries has striped themselves off of one natural resource that is so crucial for housing industry.

We at Log Cabins LV love working with timber from FSC Certified Russia’s forests, President Putin is a very keen hunter, and woodsman, and he is very concerned about the impact on foresting, so his government keep a very sharp eye on felling and the amount that is allowed to be felled. There are many stories about illegal logging in Russia, it is all lies! Politics gets mixed up with reality!

. Many years of experience in log cabins industry taught us that timber from wild subarctic Russian taiga is superior to timber from farmed European forests.

Quality is our main goal when designing and building our log cabins and timber houses. In our production, we use C24 visually graded timber NOT C16 like most of other timber frame housing manufacturers. Which means that our  residential buildings are far superiour and stronger than 99.9% of other companies.

Our glulam log cabins we took it one step further. Our laminated logs are manufactured from timber that are graded C32 or even C40.With logcabins.lv you always get better!

Siberian larch timber is one of our favorites. It is not only one of the hardest softwoods in the world but also valued for its distinct silvery-grey color and consistent texture when used in cladding projects. Siberian larch boards show very straight grain with few small knots. Customers love our Siberian larch cladding because it is aesthetically pleasing when used for residential buildings and the external  cladding or terrace decking boards.

We value Siberian larch for its natural resistance to decay and dimensional stability. Larch cladding life span if treated properly is 50 – 100 years.If you really want to purchase a quality log cabin, timber framed building or a Camping Pod, or a bespoke building please send us an email…logcabins.lv, do not settle for less!

Highly Insulated Timber Frame Housing

As one of the largest timber frame house suppliers in Norway, we are often asked to manufacture highly insulted timber frame buildings for the northern most part of the country. Norwegians are very much into keeping the landscape looking natural and designing their properties to blend into the countryside.

Norway has one of the highest build regulation standards in the world. TEK 10.

Three times that of the UK and most of Europe.

Insulation values are a major part of this high standard, but also on par with insulation is build quality. Visual Graded CE KD C24 is the only grade expectable for all weight bearing walls, roof etc. Most of Europe and UK use Visual Graded C16, which is the bottom most part of the Visual Grade Scale. (Please ask your builder which grade he is thinking of using in your timber frame build).

Norwegians love to use sedum roofing out in the wilds, as this offers amazing insulation properties to the timber frame or Log Cabin dwellings and gives the building a natural feel, and also brings natural into the design, so it’s a plus, plus , plus!

Sedum roofing is a very heavy alternative to steal tiles, or shingles. All our timber frame buildings are built regardless if they are erected in Northern Norway or Essex with strength in every part of the construction.

If you are looking for a quality timber frame building-house-office-garage-park home-mobile-granny annex- etc, please give us a call or send us an email.

Timber frame and Log Cabins

This Blog today is just to speak quickly about timber frame buildings and log cabins, and how they are greatly different.

There are quite a few agents/dealers in the UK- Europe that will offer you a log cabin, and call it a residential building. But the difference between the two is night and day.

A residential building, timber frame, is designed to be a 12-month a year dwelling. A single skin log cabin is not.

In certain countries where rainfall is minimal and the season is hot then very cold, then a single skin 220mm Scandinavian log cabin is great, but in some parts of Europe-UK where the weather is very damp, this kind of structure has its limitations due to rainfall.

When a company offers you a single skin log cabin say in 70mm solid timber and offers to clad the building inside, this still does not get around the moisture issue.

This year we have had hundreds of people call us and ask us if our twin skin log cabins (solid timber) will meet building regulations, and sat tests, etc, and the honest answer is yes, but we need to redesign the whole cabin. And we 9 times out of 10 ask them to look at the timber frame selection, which we have over one hundred designs in our gallery.

Timber frame is truly the only way to go if you are on a budget, and you are looking for super insulted building, which will also last the test of time.

Below are some photos of Timber Frame buildings we have manufactured and built.
