A friend had a house re-built in Manastir. Basically, the majority of the old brick and stone house was taken down. Foundations were then laid and a re-inforced concrete frame erected to comply with earthquake requirements. The stonework was then replaced complete with DPC. (The stonework was also t...

As stated earlier in the post, hindsight is great. The simple answer is yes, in hindsight. Our place has been described by a number of people as the best property in Bulgaria. As far as we're concerned, you couldn't wish for a better location so in part, we agree. Luckilly we don't have to suffer???...

[quote="seathrift"]qwerty, Thanks for trying to explain it, but your analogy is not correct. A freezer works by having a pump compress a gas which then discharges through a small hole. This allows the gas to rapidly expand, which causes cooling and thence cools the fridge via a cold plate ...

Bees and the effects of GM crops on them, didn't come into it at that time. Obviously this has nothing to do with this topic so apologies if it's off on a tange...

Thanks for that info qwerty. A couple of years ago the field opposite us were sown with rape and a large, local honey producer placed 100s of hives alongside the fields.

Re: wet wood

[quote="adele"]will not disagree with what has been said but if you run on metal pipes for fires then just as long as you clean them regularly (metal pipe brush cost 3lv) you will not get any problems, also not all areas allow you to cut your own wood now our village and surrounding areas ...
