Sorry I can't help with your question, but are you saying you bought a place with shutters on the windows and the sellers took them when they left?

hi

light bulbs are bad enough. that would be very mean.

no during their ownership they chose to remove them. not their style i guess. so just bare windows.

i want insurance so i guess this would help with the premiums. as the originals wooden shutters. the louvered style suits my rustic heart, id like those again.

if anyone knows where i can get these done????

many thanks

Shutters are nice to look at but they need lots of looking after - stain wise. Personally I would go for the bars. There is a small place on the way into Ciftlik that makes them. Not sure if they speak English though.

As Ron says though - the little yard near us is pretty good.

Other option is to make sure all your windows have good quality locks fitted. You can then fit curtains to make it feel more homely  :)

Guys. You warm the old cockles . Stoop (AKA) you were the one who suggested I replace the shutters . I giggle .

Legless . Maybe if we are out at the same time, while I'm not watching tv. You might have time to show me? Maybe we could go to that pide place you told me about?

Thanks for being there chaps x
