Dear Visitors,

It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  In the world of Bali Hardwood Homes (the Bali Wood "World" which is the center of Prefab Housing fabrication in Indonesia where it all happens), there are a  number of knock-off companies that feel that our designs are the ones to imitate.  Of course, buyers should be aware that copying the external appearance of a design does not mean that someone who lacks formal engineering training would properly copy the important details such as the structural connections, beam sizing and truss design (in particular for hurricane prone areas).  Our web site is frequently targeted by newcomers who ruthlessly copy text and/or copy copyrighted pictures from our web site as to use them in their own web site.  

In addition our innovative web site and prefab building ideas are frequently taken advantage of and employed by others to imitate us. So be it, we feel flattered at least and we apologize for the fact that you may consider us a bit protective (for a good reason, we guess).

However, If you wish to copy text, a picture or a plan from our web site solely for private purposes, please do so.

You may have a look at the list on the bottom of this page to see the offenders. We take plagiarism very seriously.
