I have purchased a house in Mangsit and need craftsmen for fixing it up. I.e. masoners, tilers, gardeners and carpenters.
Anyone who has good experience with people they can recommend. People who don't rip you off.

Hi Hfraast

Congratulations of the purchase of your Lombok home! cheers cheers cheers

I am afraid I cant recommend anyone for you. We used local builders who dont like to travel and infact one of them is now a full time member of staff at Mimpi Manis - so you couldnt use him anyway.

Good luck with the renovations!

Hi Hfraast
I used to live in Mangsit - which / who's house did you buy?
It may depend on when you are looking to do the work - there is a chance we will be back in Lombok and my husband (who started life as a builder) can help you. He knows plenty of good workmen in Lombok, but the problem is they don't speak english - so you need someone to act in the middle between you and the workers - and also to make sure that the quality is correct, and the price is right. I asked him if he knows anyone in Mangsit who is honest - his reply is he knows plenty of people in Mangsit but they are 'all the same' when it comes to how honest they may be. So on that basis I wouldn't recommend any of them Rolling Eyes

You could also go see Glenn at the Beach Club (next to Alberto's in Batu Bolong) - I recall he said he got onto someone who was excellent at organising the various workmen and materials they needed to build their bungalows (sorry Glenn, I think that is what you said? it was a while ago now...) - perhaps he can recommend someone for you.

Lucky you living in Mangsit - it is a nice part of the world. I love watching the sunset go down behind Bali.

For good project management I can recommend Nick.

He's an engineer from Germany, has a building material shop in Sweta and has a crew of very skilled local workers
He's not doing el cheapo projects however, only good quality. Pricing seemed to be very fair when he did renovation for us...
