really great info Merlin, have you thought about writing a book with all of your info in[?] sure it would be a bestseller[8D]
Whilst we have a wood burner, is it possible to get one that you can open from the front to put your wood into and also to empty[?] it,s just that we have a lovely big fireplace and would like to set the stove into it.
a book? I have been here nearly 6 years and still learning the "ways".
I would personally forget the front loader idea, been there and enquired myself for aesthetic purposes. But it will cost you a small fortune and will not provide the same output you would get from a top loading woodburner.
One thing I have learnt in winter is not to be worried about how your house/apartment looks, design it best to suit the people that are living there.
No disrespect, but us Brits do worry so much about neighbours turning up and casting an opinion.
All Turkish who have "any" sense do the same. Small room, nicely carpeted, small Turkish eating table on the floor, television and a nice warm top loading woodburner.
I would recommend you bring over a smoke detector(s) as they are around 10 pounds here and pretty rubbish.
