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

"We ordered a 180 m2 unit from P.T. Bali Prefabworld late 2015 to serve as a mock-up model for New Caledonia . We unexpectedly visited the yard of Bali Prefabworld 2 times as to check the progress and verify the quality. We were stunned........ It was exactly what they promised us to build: Top, top, top quality. This undoubtedly showed their high professionalism. Before we ordered the unit with Bali Prefabworld we had visited a number of other prefab wooden house companies in Bali but those were either non-responsive, or were building something we did not like at all; cheap materials and not according to proper workmanship. We have meanwhile ordered 2 more large units from P.T. Bali Prefabworld and will order more in the future. We strongly recommend this company to anybody intending to buy a wooden prefab house. We would be happy to answer all of your questions and share with you our experience".
