Most foreigners who move to Bali or even while they are on holiday get caught up in the property rush. Property prices have sky rocketed on the island, while there are still a few pockets of cheap land available.

Many people dream of buying their own piece of Bali and building their own Balinese house or villa.

Construction in Bali can be quite different from what you are used to in your own country. Even in house construction Bali has it own unique customs to follow. I am learning myself, so over the next few months I am following the build of a new villa here in Lovina. No it’s not mine! But the property is still for sale if anyone is interested.

I am hoping it will be useful for anyone considering building a house here in Bali. Any questions or feedback is most welcome.
