Hi all, Anyone know if there is an 'Outback' Gas BBQ (or any other decent make) stockist in Limassol. Sun has come out again so maybe it will be safe to start planing those summer gatherings!!!! Thanks. RegardsKevin

Can anyone recommend someone in Larnaca to service our pool? We have someone who has been doing the job for 10 years & charges us 80 pounds per month.

Hello Could someone please advise me of any picture framing shops in the Larnaca area, I know I could wait until the Ikea store is open but who knows when that will be, I know they say June but will it! I have got the artwork but frames too heavy to carry from the UK would be grateful for any information. Thanks. Regards Rainladypostbag

If you are lucky enough to live in one of the new-build apartment blocks with a small dedicated area for DIY storage, usually on the ground floor of the block, then I would be interested to hear from you with a view to renting the space on a long-term basis for DIY storage of some of my small personal effects.

Hi all, Coming over to Larnaca end of May and need to create a concrete base to sit a small shed on. My question is where can I get the materials ie sand, cement, ballast, or better still ready mixed dry concrete mix (just add water). Im near the dhekelia road hotels so somewhere local would be great. Is there a builders merchant near by?? Cheers AndyAndy

I am doing some research on environmental issues in Cyprus and would like to hear the views and experiences of people living here. I am particularly interested in whether you are recycling (or have tried to), the availability of environmentally friendly products, your own 'green' tips, environmental horror stories and your general views on the facilities available here to go green. Your help would be greatly appreciated!Mel

I was just watching the programme Grand Designs...about environmentally friendly homes and how to develop them. This was based on the uk but a question.. is this done in Cyprus ?are there architects that specialise in this field in Cyprus? I just haven,t come across anything like this in my research ,. Any contacts would be great,as we may one day decide to build.lisa

hi, hope someone can advise. i have been quoted approximately £900 to ship personal belongings to limassol. the consignment consists of -- 32in tv, mountain bicycle, 1 med sized box of kitchen equip, 1 suitcase, stack system stereo and speakers, and 2 medium sized boxes containing household effects. i`m considering selling belongings now as £900 seems rather expensive. could anyone inform me of a cheaper way to get personal belonging to cyprus? and whether i`m better off selling and buying replacements when i get there. thankyou for reading.slc

We have closed-in the balcony to our third floor flat but need to install a canopy (which can be raised or lowered) on the external wall to cut the sun. Because of the nature of the building, you can't use a forklift or 'cherrypicker' for external access, so need someone who can do this from the balcony itself. We want something which will last but not be too expensive. The original canopy (which was mounted internally on the balcony walls) cost a fortune! Larnaca area. Any ideas please? Thanks, Gina

Hello all, I am new to the forum and have been impressed by the wealth of advice and experience in previous posts. My husband and I are looking to renovate an old village house and move to Cyprus. As per others' previous posts, we are learning Greek and definitely wish to be part of Cypriot life (as opposed to being 'ex-pats'). Part of this is finding an architect and a builder who is experienced in and sympathetic to restoring or rebuilding traditional stone buildings. So, we would be very grateful indeed for any such contacts you can recommend please. Looking forward to reading your posts and to becoming part of the community - many thanks in anticipation...

Hi Just had a quote to move our things from Northern France to Cyprus. 45 cubic meters and one car came to a whopping €12 500 (or £9000). Jeez, I fell off my chair. I thought maybe £5000 tops. Anybody else have any recommendations? Was it/is it this expensive to move your stuff? This is from Orbit Moving & Storage Ltd in Limassol. Seriously considering turning up with just a few suitcases in the back of a car on the ferry. Rather shocked Roy
