    Everything I googled came up Turkish - you have a member here, Inishta. He will probably confirm (or deny).

    Check out my pictures here:

        Hi James.............it is Turkish. The gobbledy-gook comes from not having Turkish characters enabled and reads "Koy Firini Yapiyoruz-1" or Village oven construction-1. It's a blog for someone building a house and developing his garden. He is building a stone oven for pide (Turkish pizza) and baking village bread.

        The title is

        "ılgın Kalabalıktan Uzak" or "Far From The Madding Crowd".

        The username or title Meyvelitepe I think means hill/peak with fruit a reference to the land he owns and probably the name of his house. I will check with a native.

        He has nice things to say about the English () site Forno Bravo and forum and the fact that you are giving away plans for an oven free. Fuller translation of the text will take a bit of time.

        More to follow.

            Hi there,
            It is interesting that you are trying to discover me as the site owner who linked FB Yes I did put the link of this nice forum. Simply I'm trying to build a Pompei style oven in my backyard and I got lots of help from FB and all participants of this forum. Thanks to everyone who are sharing their experiences.

            Actually, we are trying to do the same in Turkish not only for the oven but as well as protecting environment, building a energy conservative house, building a fruit garden, flowers, and off course every aspects of olive.

            You can reach me by e-mail if you have any question about us.

                Merhaba Inistha, Tesekkurler...

                Thank you very much. I think you are living in Fethiye. It is a nice place in south west. My oven building was suspended because of the cold season. I'm starting again this weekend. It is shame but I did a mistake when I started to build the heart. I did use fireclay as the mortar assuming that it was a mix. It was too late when I understood it is pure fireclay. Anyway, I did take back everything last week and re-built with a mixed mortar

                I'll try to keep you updated. By the way, it is unbelievable how people are trying to find information about building a firebrick garden oven. About 50% of google searches which reached to my site are about building oven. Unfortunately, my site is the only resource in Turkish although almost every house has a garden oven in villages (builded by quite senior people). The strange thing is, mine is not countryside Turkish style (because I don't know how to build it) but, it is exactly Pompei style. The funny thing is here, the new ovens in whole Anotolia will be Pompei style

                  meyvelitepe, bien venuto di nostri sito sulla forno a legna.

                  Welcome aboard. If there is anything FB can do to help out, let me know. I've written this before, but we visited Istanbul a few years ago; had a great time and enjoyed the restaurant scene immensely. I even posted a photo of a wood-fired oven on FB.com.

                  Now all we need is a Turkish dealer. We can ship ovens by truck. :-)

                    Hi James..........I am sure we could talk about Forno Bravo in Turkey but I am currently involved with the dreaded customs department.............red tape nightmare..........on another matter. It is a lot closer to ship the ovens to Turkey than to US or OZ. I'll send an e-mail.
