Hi Everybody

I wish you all and myself Very Happy New Year 2017. Sorry for my late communication. I was not feeling well.

Hi Cukurbaqli, is this picture of you in Antalya? Is it true that snow in Antalya?!

I love cold weather. Sometimes I think I will miss the cold weather in Europe if I really move out to live somewhere in Mediterranean.

 I wish you all plenty of happiness, good health and lots of joy.

I was walking by Hadrian's gate today and the park next to the gate is still covered in snow. Strangely enough, no place else is. It definitely gets cold here. Unfortunately my house has no insulation, and I have to run two heaters in my bedroom to sleep on the colder nights. I don't like cold weather at all... I thought it would be warm here! :doh:

The cold is different here from the cold on the east coast of the US. There, there might be three feet of snow on the ground, but the sky is blue and the sun is out, and it's so dry it doesn't feel cold. But here it seems like the cold goes right through your clothes. And even your clothes make you cold. I assume it's because of the humidity.

Hi Ken

Nice to hear from you.

Yea, I think it is the humidity that makes the cold weather unbearable. Just like the weather in Denmark. But the weather in Sweden is much better no mater how cold is because of less humidity.

Fireplace would be great for you then. Do you have one? I would love to have traditional fireplace in my sitting room!!

We have a traditional fireplace, we light a fire in the evenings but for most of the winter days the 'Morso' wood burning stove in the kitchen is enough. We bought it in 2009 in Antalya, probably our best buy here. It does get cold up here in the mountains (1000m high)

Is good to hear that it gets also cold in where I am planning to find my new home.

FenerEniste, I am encouraged by you to visit Izmir too. The picture above looks like colder than the weather in the UK.

IbrahimAbi, I love the traditional fireplace and I really want to have it in my sitting room. It makes the environment so lovely cozy.

IbrahimAbi, Can I ask you to send me the image of your wood burning stove that you bought from Antalya? If you like it so much, I may think also to find one.

Cheers!!

That's a nice looking fireplace.  Nice that it can be moved opposed to an in-wall unit.

I love the in-wall versions & they are nice if you can split it between 2 rooms (fire on each side of the wall)...or say inside as well as a seating area outside for example.

Of course for an interior, the size would be much smaller.  Would be nice for a house though...and with the ingenuity of Turkish architects/designers, I'm sure they could figure something out. :)

The thing that impresses me most about the wood burner is that 1 log of about 25cm (30cm is the max for this model) will heat the whole kitchen with doors open to other rooms for up to 1 (sometimes 1.5) hr it is very efficient. With an open fire (which we have in the lounge) we burn about 5 times as much and do not get the same heat output

So inspiring,

The wood burning stove looks good but the in-wall version looks majestic and gorgeous. It looks sooo expensive!!

FenerEniste, Thank you for the information about the outdoors in-wall fireplace you post. The image is especially beautiful.

You need a house for this dream !!

Maybe I have to buy the lotto more often...:confused:

I think with the right mindset anyone can have an indoor/outdoor fire place.  Everything comes down to design & how much money you intend to spend.

Personally I would rather a stand alone fireplace inside.  & a fire pit outside.  You can actually design your own fire pit & you can have propane with say lava rock or high temp design stones, instead of wood.  I have seen people make a full outside seating area with a built in fire pit in the center for outdoor entertaining.  I think its something I would like to try to do later on...

Local 'demirci' made it for us from a photo I gave him, he made it to my measurements, We  bought heatproof paint from a specialist in Izmir, good job

As stated before...the ingenuity of local Turkish merchants are unmatched! 

While I was in Izmir on duty, I had a shop in one of the saniye in Bayrakli do some body modifications...from SCRATCH...from just looking at a photo as well.  Really...

I have met some great people there, who I remain friends til this day!
