Some questions about Living in Jakarta ...

(Miree) Hi Miree,How are you? What happened to you website? I couldn't access it for the past few days. First of all, I wanted to thank you for the leads on Robert's Furniture and the Kemang Travel Agency, both of which I had the pleasure of dealing with. Also, I was wondering if you have answers to my questions re Jakarta stuff:
1. Would you know of a good but inexpensive carpenter who can do simplecarpentry work/repairs around the house?
2. I have a glass door from the living room leading to the garden and would like to add a screen door to allow the air in. Would you know ofa good but inexpensive supplier who can do this? I had it quoted before and they gave me a very expensive quotation of Rp220M!
3. Would you know of a cabinet supplier who can add a plywood or MDF cabinet under the stairs?
4. Would you know of a good supplier who can make upholstered furniture?
5. Lastly, is there a reputable/legit masseuse/reflexologist who can go to my house for home service? I tried surfing the net for this and the results that came out are the shady services. Help! Many thanks!
