The great variaty in moisture content in wood means that each species requires either less or more time to dry down to the desired moisture content. When air drying the aim is to dry to a 25-percent moisture content. Then, they're ready for the kiln where they'll be reduced to about ten percent.

Without a kiln (oven), the least achievement would be an air-dry moisture content of 15-20 percent. Further moisture reduction occurs when the wood is moved  to either indoors or outdoors with a proper cover where they'll eventually reach their equilibrium moisture content (EMC). (Note: The EMC equals a point where the wood neither takes on nor loses moisture due to the atmosphere.)

According to the U.S. Forest Service's Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin, it takes 1"-thick green boards from 45-60 days to air dry to 15-20 percent moisture content in sunny, temperate, not-too-humid weather.  Bali has an optimal environment to air dry wood, however, the drying process can prove slower, taking three or four months before the wood reaches its EMC and can be worked. Achieving workable stock means starting with a proper stack.

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!
