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.

Log Cabins LV, we pride ourselves on telling the public the truth.

Log Cabins LV the Best in Log Cabins-Timber Buildings in the UK

log cabins lv

log cabins lv

Log Cabins LV does supply the best timber buildings- log cabins in the market, that is fact, and our accomplished dealers, who work hard, and have incredible fitters manage to demonstrate this time and time again.

Without bragging, we have been in this industry longer than anyone in the UK, we have designed so many iconic and amazing garden buildings to be honest I have lost count.

We are now looking at designing New And Amazing Park Homes, which is why we worked hard over the last 2 years, and designed and built the very first Passive Park Home in the UK, which is on display in Poole Dorset.

Log Cabins LV is as always moving forward and never looking back!

That is why our designs are copied by all, as we are the true designers and fabricators of the future of garden buildings designs, and now we have decided to offer our design skills to the holiday and park home industry.

 

When purchasing a log cabin, you need to take a lot into account, firstly, check out to see how long the company has been around, see if they are from a timber building background, most don’t and most are only in the business to earn.

 

If you look at most resellers in the UK, they actually offer nothing, just resell a cheap nasty copy of a LV design, or something similar, and take a huge profit and then next. That equates to about 99.9% of all the dealers.

 

LV dealers, like Mark here and his exspericanced fitters from FactoryCabin.co.uk put their heart and souls into creating  something amazing, and leaving the customer with a work of art, not some basic cabin with a felt roof which has earnt them hundreds for doing nothing.

Thats one thing I hate more than anything about greedy dealers, they build-erect quickly, make a mess and blame everyone else for their incompetence.

If you truly are looking for a Brand that means quality, integrity, price and design then Log Cabins LV is the brand to choose when you are considering purchasing a log cabin!

passive housing  23 passive housing  24 passive housing  26 passive housing  27

Over the coming years, we are going to see a massive push by the central Government, (Brussels) to which all European Countries will harmonies build regulations, there are many reasons for this, but it seems the main reason is our usage-dependence on natural resources, energy consumption.

Designing dwellings that are affordable, energy efficient, passive, will be the task of architects, but it will be us the manufacturers that will determine the price and quality.

Log Cabins LV has over many years pushed quality, design and price to the forefront of the log cabins market.

We also have over the last few years pushed prices down and quality levels up on timber frame and passive building designs, homes.

 

We at log cabins LV believe that everyone one should be a winner, and that fair profits are healthy for a business, but also fair pricing for the customer.

Too many companies strive to earn profit, and forget about the main goal in life, which is to make our society a better place.

 

There are nearly 7 Billion people on our planet and this means the need for housing has never been greater!

But what’s more important is the need for clever creative design!

So companies build rows upon rows of awful brick clad buildings, all heated with gas, and all poorly made and insulated. We create too much waste needlessly.

Highly Insulated Passive Timber frame housing, which is all from FSC certified forests, triple glazing, and a clever highly insulated panel system, is all you need to make a superb Passive house, (OK, there is a bit more to it).

However, what makes a house a home?

 

Quality of Build.

Comfort.

Design.

Longevity.

Affordability.

Investment.

 

If you are looking for a quality timber frame, passive house! Our professional team of architects, skilled work force and years of experience are here to help you take the next step! Do not settle for less!!

Residential Log Cabins, Not Residential Log Cabins

Warning to all those thinking they are purchasing a Residential log cabin, 99.9% of the stuff sold on the internet by most cabin companies is Not Residential.. Please read this blog!

residential log cabins  lv   2residential log cabins  lv   3residential log cabins  lv   4

The word residential is used by most cabin companies that are based abroad, and do not really understand the word residential cabin!

A residential cabin must be built either to the BS3632 or to full building regulations with full structural calculations. If the cabin has neither and is built to neither then it is just a common garden cabin, no more no less! It may have cost a huge amount more because the word residential was attached which makes you think!! Arrr Dwelling!!!

Too many companies from the Baltic’s, and Scandinavia use the terminology Residential Log Cabin to proclaim that their flimsy 44mm log cabins are fit for human  habitation, they are not!

These cabins are not structurally sound and are not fit for purpose.

So when purchasing a Residential Log Cabin, be it glulam, or solid, timber frame, or hand made Norwegian log, make sure that what you are purchasing is truly a building fit for purpose, and that it is manufactured to either the BS3632 of full build regs.

There is no gray area here, it either is, or is not!!! THAT’S IT!

Secondly, a word of warning to the Public.

If you purchase a Log Cabin that looks like most dreadful caravans, and you think the planners will allow you to keep it, as its within the guidelines of size and shape, then take note, they won’t.

The BS3632 is quite stringent (even though it is the worst British Standard ever dreamt up) about ventilation, how the roof is assembled, pitch, and the way the body is assembled, and and and!

So if you are thinking of purchasing a Residential Log Cabin talk to the people that really know what’s what, and also who offer realistic pricing.

As we say in the industry, it’s easy to buy cheap, but you buy twice if you do!

We are able to help you with planning, build regs and other issues.

So do not get tempted to buy a cabin from the web with the word residential attached, as 99.9% are nothing but glorified garden cabins. And most a terribly built, awful designed, and last 3 years.

And lastly, if you do try and get away with buying a cheap cabin that looks like an awful static caravan, in the hope that your local building inspector might give you a squeeze and let you keep it up, and he does not! Then do not go crying foul to the credit card company about the log cabin company misleading you!

All our dealers from LV will tell you a log cabin , garden cabin is only a garden cabin, nothing more or less, what ever size, until you put it through planning, and all the structural elements are adjusted to meet said requirements!

Oak Garden Offices and Log Cabins LV

oak buildings, oak log cabins,

Oak buildings, oak log cabins, oak garages, oak shelters, oak beams

Why is it that so many people want to purchase Oak Buildings?

Fact, it takes an Oak tree 40 years until it can produce an acorn.

In the UK the common Oak is protected, and a very serious quota is put on harvesting-felling- logging

However, our common Oak is also under threat from Oak Processionary Moth, it is a non-native pest found in London and Berkshire.

Acute Oak Decline (AOD) also chronic oak decline, (COD) is serious conditions, which affects the UK oaks.

Several contributing factors are linked to the diseases.

Decline of mature oaks since 1920.

Key symptoms include canopy thinning branch dieback, and black weeping patches and lesions underlying the bleed spots.

 

Knowing all this the question is why are we allowing industry to use our beloved oak for, door stops, sheds, beach huts, garden buildings, garages, internal beams, etc.

The reason is partly to do with history, and that the fact that England sadly needs to change its habits in construction and what timber to use.

garden office siberian larch

quality garden offices from log cabins lv

At log cabins LV we never use Oak, English, or any other species of Oak for any part of our buildings.

This is just a company choice, but we think if we start to push other amazing timbers that are in abundance, then hopefully the industry will change its habits and Oak might get a change over the next 400+ years to catch up and be once again the champion of timbers!

The Ki Log Cabins Under 2.5m High!

The Best Under 2.5m Log Cabins in the Industry!

Logcabins.lv is firstly a design house, we love to design and manufacture the future, but we also like to create new concept quality log cabins, that are hand made, and take a few more hours to manufacture, rather than spitting them out every minute, like so many bulk manufactures tend to do now!

Log Cabins Ki Range

Design and longevity is a feature all our buildings have manufactured into them from the onset. We are very proud at being the main leader in the log cabin industry and all other manufactures the followers.

Imagination and determination is inherent, and this is why logcabins.lv has and always will be the leader in Quality Garden Buildings, be them log, or timber frame, or hand crafted Norwegian rustic log cabins.

Our pedigree is seen on all other manufacturers web sites, our twin skin designs copied by all, our office designs copied by all, our clock house designs again copied by all, and so on!

We see this as a form of flattery, and it shows us that the market is full of sheep following the Sheppard!

The reason we are mentioning this, is that in the very near future (3 weeks) we will be show casing a brand new range of garden buildings that are totally distinctive, unique and manufactured with the LV brand of quality.

What we have noticed is that our unique cabins are copied, year in and year out, which sadly confuses the public, what we have found is that our dealers are receiving many calls from customers telling them they have seen our log cabins on another site, and the price is cheaper. Its not that the price is cheaper, its that it’s a knock off design, with rubbish windows and doors, cheap floor, cheap hardware, and missing parts!

One member of the public called us the other day and asked us if we could supply 8 clock house windows and a set of double doors, because the clock house she had bought from another manufacture, the windows and doors had basically as she put it, “Fell Apart” the company had cease trading! Surprise, Surprise! No her name was not Cilla. Sadly, the wall logs were a unregulated size and our windows and doors were to big to fit the wall profile.

If you are looking to purchase a quality log cabin, don’t think cheap, don’t think quick, think quality, think 4 weeks! You want your log cabin to stand up and be the best it can be, none of us want to throw our money down the drain, yet daily, there are people purchasing bulk manufactured log cabins, which is as good as throwing your money away!

If you come across a company bragging that they sell 1500 buildings a month, this is the equivalent to 150 trucks, which is impossible!

However, if they were doing such quantities, you can be sure their production is 100% Crap!

Our goal is not quantity, but manufacturing quality! We do not manufacture sitting stock, as we want you to have the best building possible, freshly cut, hand made, to your bespoke design! Plus we have the largest range in the world, and it would be impossible for us to have each and every building in stock, and then offer a bespoke servie on that design.

Please look out for the Ki New Range of log cabins.
