Definition of deforestation according to Wikipedia:

"Deforestation is the removal of a forest or stand of trees where the land is thereafter converted to a non-forest use. Examples of deforestation include conversion of forestland to agriculture or urban use."


We do not need to explain the devastating effect caused by the world-wide ongoing deforestation. 

What counts is what we, - as builders of tropical hardwood homes -, can do about it. First of all we could terminate our business, but this will have serious consequences for all of our staff and workers. Secondly we could increase our prices with 5-fold and contribute the extra funds to the Indonesian reforestation program. The question which immediately raises is: Who will buy our houses? We could source different type of hardwood species which are not (yet) on the endangered wood species list. However, sadly enough, this will not last long. We came up with many more ideas, but none of them proved to have a solid sustainable foundation, that is to say,........... one of these ideas may work well.

This is what we would like to achieve:
We are now gradually abandon the use of Indonesian hardwood for our houses which may soon be listed as "endangered" and replace this with hardwood species which grow in abundance and wich are protected by the V-legal system <V-legal> which lists the timber sources selected from Government certified plantations, whereas a proper and continous re-forestation program is in place. 
The Pros: We will seriously contribute to the saving of Indonesia's endangered tropical forests. At least we are certain that we use "green wood".
The Cons: We may not be able to utililze some hardwoods we were used to and prices may have to be increased somewhat. However, we are of the believe that any client will be willing to pay this little contribution to safeguard Indonesia's tropical forests.

The Management of BALI PREFAB WORLD

Reviews from Bali Prefab World

"I contacted Bali Prefabworld while looking for a suitable contractor to design and build a Joglo style structure above the existing flat roof of our house in Canggu. Bali. The builder we had used for the house had not installed the sealing membrane properly and we were plagued by leaks and had decided to build the additional structure to help keep the water out and give us some really nice additional space on top of the house looking at over the rice fields. "

I was very concerned about getting a proper design that was both strong enough to withstand the occasional high winds and not degrade the integrity our house – basically we did not want the Joglo to end up in the rice field and leave a big hole in the roof where it had been attached!

Bali Prefabworld was extremely professional in every aspect – they managed to design a structure that was strong, did what we wanted and looked good.

The installation went as planned and we are completely satisfied with the end result.

I would definitely use Bali Prefabworld again!
