8. WOODEN HOUSE AND FIRE


Wooden house on fire 1  

It is fiction that a wooden house may spontaneously combust during very high temperatures, whether or not in combination with a long exposure to direct sunlight.
It is also fiction a that a wooden house is not fire resistant. Believe it or not, but in some scenarios a wooden house will last longer in a fire than a steel frame buiilding.

17. WE HATE NAILS 

 Nails  

We do no use one nail in our connections. Driving nails in hardwood is asking for trouble. The wood easily splits and/or cracks whereas the nail can hardly be pulled out due to the very dense cell structure of hardwood, leaving behind significant damages to the wood. We connect our prefab parts by means of cut-to-fit threaded steel rods in pre-drilled holes, secured with washers and nuts.

18. DO IT YOURSELF

DIY  

All of our engineered houses, (small, large, 2-storeys, over water units), gazebos, tree and tea houses are specially designed for the "Do It Yourselfer".  Due to our unique connection system very easy to assemble, not one nai used, no contractor needed and no lifting equipment required. Our 3-D assembly manual works like an IKEA© kit, part-by-part with detailed numbered connection codes. It can't go wrong. Have fun assemble the house or gazebo with family and/or friends

Reviews from Bali Prefab World

"We purchased two pre-fab gazebos each 10'x10 and a flat deck 10'x10 and a 10'x10 deck with cutout for around our hot tub and pool. We live in Grand Cayman. My parents and brother each bought a slightly larger gazebo. They both live in Barbados. All our gazebos have alang alang roofs. We are all very happy with the product and in each case Bali Prefabworld delivered what they said they would. We all used our own labour to put together the kits".
Review from: Mr. Desmond Kinch, Grand Cayman, Caribbean
Project: 2 hurricane resistant gazebos for the Cayman islands and 2 gazebos for Barbados
