Winter wood supplies

Postby yankv8 » Wed May 02, 2007 5:40 pm

Dobre den,peeps,
it occurred to me 2day 2 ask what the weather is like in Winter,in S.E.BG.
We were in Harmanli in January and it was really mild.
How cold does it get normally/

We are taking an aga/rayburn type thingy and are hoping to have an open firplace as well.
We were told on our last visit that villagers are allotted a certain amount of firewood per house.Is this the case?
Can we go and collect our own wood from trees nearby?
Thanx in advance
Linda :smt035

Hi I believe the villagers if on benifits not sure about oap, but thaey get 3 cube of wood to last them the winter, Would not like to see how far that would really go as our last winter here was very mild, and no would not recommend you take any wood from the nearby trees, not sure if they serve porridge in BG prisons, smile.

Hi
We moved here in Feb and got 2 cu mtrs of wood, still have a fair bit left but as people have said it's been mild, we have been advised to buy at least 6 for next year as I intend cooking on a woodburner and having one in the bedroom.
We have also been told that re wood from trees you can pick anything up that's already been cut or fell over but if you get caught cutting anything down you're in deep doo doo 8O not sure how reliable this info is but not chancing it!!

The wood comes in Cubic Metres and I bought 20 cubic metres, 600 levas. Photo of what 20 cubic metres looks like in my gallery.We have three woodburners and used them throughout this winter, used approx: a third.

Hi mike
We paid 50 leva a sqare metre including the soft option of having it all cut up into manageable bits, delivery and they stacked it in our cellar really neatly :lol:

If you live in a village get your name on the Mayor's list for firewood for the winter. You will have to pay but it is cheaper than on the open market. You can buy extra supplies at the free market rate.

Do NOT attempt to go and cut wood without official permisssion. You will be fined.

Hi Scot
We have friends in Golyam Manastir and they reckon we can get wood for about 25 leva a cubic metre from the mayor, does this sound about right? Cheers Tracy

That sounds about right. You will probably have it delivered and then have to cut it. One of your neighbours will probably do that for you if you do not want to do it yourself.
