Types of hardwoods used in our products

DID YOU KNOW that there are only 4 wood species in Indonesia available which are termite resistant ? These are: Bangkirai and Merbau (but only the core wood - heartwood - of the tree), Djati teak (far too expensive to be used for wooden prefab houses) and Iron wood (prohibited to be exported), as such in fact only 2 wood species remain for the construction of reliable termite resistant wooden houses. 

All of the timber used for our projects is obtained from sustainably managed felling concessions overseen by the Minstry of Forestry of the Government of Indonesia. As such all wood is licensed and from controlled foresting operations. 

NOTE: After having reviewed this specification page you may be interested in a number of combinations of the wood species shown below applied in our prefab houses for our Basic build, Standard build, Premium build and Superior build. Click on the button below.

Reviews from Bali Prefab World

"I am the project leader for the development of some large houses to be constructed on the island of Kauai. I have thoroughly investigated the option of builing on site versus purhasing the pre-fab home from Baliprefabworld. I am convinced that working with Baliprefabworld is the most economical, efficient and effective way to go. The beauty and aesthetics of these homes are truly wonderful. We are planning to work with Baliprefabworld to use a variety of their standard models to design the home we want. The professionalism, quality of materials, and design capacity of Baliprefabworld is exemplary".
