EKOLOJIK TAS BIR EVIN ANATOMISI


“Bir ev projesine girisecekseniz bu yaziyi okumanizi siddetle tavsiye ederim…”

Nisan ayinda Tunus’ta bir gastronomi etkinliginde juri uyesi olarak davet aldigimda Amerika’nin soguk kisindan sicak Akdeniz’e donme duygusu beni fazlasiyla heyecanlandirmisti. Atlantik Okyanusunu asip Akdeniz’e kadar gelmisken ugrayip evimin durumunu da bir gormek istedim. Gectigimiz kis boyunca bolgede meydana gelen irili ufakli depremlerde ufak tefek hasarin varligindan haberdardim. Hazir ise baslamisken hizimi alamayip yarim kalmis, ertelenmis diger islere de girisecegimden ise habersiz.

Bu yazinin amaci alinan derslerin paylasilmasi. Sifirdan bir ev yaptiysaniz, hele bu isi kirsalda, kisitli is gucu ve limitli bir butce ile yapmayi becerdiyseniz illaki eksik kalan, icinize sinmeyen birseyler olacaktir. Olmayan seylerin farkinda olsaniz dahi farkettiginiz anda duzeltememis, o an icin idare edecegini dusunmus olabilirsiniz. Ama inanin, bir seyin en basinda dogru olmadiginin farkindaysaniz o sey yillar icerisinde gozunuzde buyur de buyur, ilk firsatta onu duzeltmek arzusu ile yanar tutusursunuz. Iste benim suan yasadiklarimin ozu de bu. Bunun icin en onemli sey birseyi en basinda dogrusunu yapmaktir tabiki. Bunun icin bu surecin iyisi ve kotusu ise her evresini yasamis olan birisinden kissadan hisseleri aktarmak istiyorum. Bir ev projesine girisecekseniz bu yaziyi okumanizi siddetle tavsiye ederim…

Blogumun eski yazilarina bakacak olur iseniz detaylari goreceksiniz ama yine de 2012 yilindaki evimin yapim sureci ile ilgili gecmis faaliyetlerimden haberdar olmayanlar icin kucuk bir ozet ve ilk bolum ile ilgili alinan dersleri aktarayim once. Evim Canakkale’nin guneyinde, Assos yakinlarinda kucuk bir koyde. Aldigimda uzerinde yikik bir deve dami, yikik bir ahir ve yikik iki goz ev vardi. Mimari proje oncesi ekolojik ev mimarisi ve bir evin ekolojik olmasi icin gerekli prensipleri derinlemesine calistiktan sonra Canakkale’de, yerel tas mimarisi konusuna hakim degerli bir mimar arkadasimizla proje cizimine ve yasal izinler icin gerekli diger calismalara basladik.

DERS 1: Gayrimenkulunuzun imar durumunu daha alim asamasinda mutlaka inceleyin. Ev yapimi icin ihtiyaciniz olan yasal izinleri alabilmaniz icin birinci kosul arazinizin imar durumunun konut yapimina uygun olmasidir. Yasal izinleriniz icin gerekli olan mimari proje, zemin etudu, statik, elektrik ve mekanik proje, vs gibi surecleri ve yasal izinler icin basvuru ile ilgili islemleri sizin yerinize vekalet vereceginiz mimarinizin takip etmesi daha pratik bir hal tarzi olacaktir.

Yasal izinleri sorunsuz bir sekilde aldiniz, sira geldi evinizin insa asamasina. Cebinizdeki paranin hesabini bilebilmek adina isin baslangicinda birilerinin cikip size bu evi anahtar teslim su kadara yaparim demesini duymak istiyorsunuz. Ozellikle tas ev yapacaksaniz tas isciligi zahmetli ve masrafli bir surec. Duydugunuz rakamlar ilk etapta gozunuzu korkutabilir. Kirsalda iseniz ve fazla alternatifiniz yok ise bunun icin bolge disindan muteahitler dahi getirebilirsiniz. Ben oyle yaptim maalesef. Benim yaptigim en buyuk hata Turkiye’deki adalet sistemine guvenmek oldu. Disaridan getirdigim usta ile ise senetli sepetli, sozlesmeli olarak basladim. Sandim ki avukatim kanali ile hazirlanmis kapi gibi sozlesme beni korur. Ama isin rengi oyle degil. Sonuc husran, yarim kalmis is, hicbir zaman geri alamayacaginiz kaptirdiginiz paraniz, hukuki surec ile kaybedilmis zaman, vs. vs.

DERS 2: Yola kimin ile cikacaginiza cok iyi karar verin. Yerel insanlarla calismak yapacaginiz en dogru secim olur. Kucuk yerlerde herkes birbirini tanir, sorun, sorusturun, yaptigi islere bakin, isverenleri ile gorusun, En ucuzunu degil en iyisini bulmaya gayret gosterin. Unutmayin, dogru yapilmamis bir ev icinde yasadiginiz muddetce size uzebilir. Ileride tesbit edeceginiz problem sahalarini cozumlemek daha zahmetli ve daha pahali olabilir. Hedef her daim yaptigi isin arkasinda duracak, ilerleyen zamanlarda tesbit edeceginiz problemlerde gelip sorunu cozecek durusa sahip dogru ustayi bulabilmek. Yerelden sasmayin. Kanunlar size ve paranizi hicbir sekilde korumuyor ve guvence altina almiyor. Kendi kendinizi korumak durumundasiniz.

Evinizin projesini cizdiniz, yasal izinlerinizi aldiniz, keyifli bir sekilde yaptirdiniz. Sira geldi ince detaylara. O evde zaman gecirin. Yasayip eksikleri ve ihtiyaclari gorun. Kagit uzerindeki planlama ile gercek durumlar ortusmeyebilir. Benim bu son haftalarda yapmis oldugum bu idi. Icerisinde yasadikca tesbit ettigim problem sahalarini, boyle olursa daha iyi olur dedigim detaylari cozumledim bu periyotta. Bunlar ev ici ve ev disi yasam alanlarim ve peysaji da etkileyen estetik detaylar.  Yapim surecinde idare eder sandigim tas duvarlarin derzlenmesi, dis bahcede kendi dosedigim kayrak taslari, ic bahcede kullandigim cakil taslarinin ve yurume yolu olarak serpistirdigim kayrak taslarinin pratikte kullanisli olmadigini tesbitim, kapimim onunun yani sokagimin ne yaparsam yapayim pis goruntusu, vs. Bunlari cozumledim bu sefer. Ve gecici olarak yaptirdigim asma kattaki yatakodamin banyo tuvaletine ve mutfagima da geldi sira nihayet.

DERS 3: Projenizin sonunda sabriniz, zamaniniz ve paraniz kalmamis olabilir. Dusuk maliyetli gecici cozumlerle problem cozun ve yasadikca gercek ihtiyaci gordukce en ince detayina kadar inceleyip planladiktan sonra icinize sinecek nihayi cozumleme yoluna gidin. Bir omur keyifle kullanacaginiz mekanlar olusturun. Ve omrunuzun sonuna kadar keyifle yasayin o guzel mekanlarda…

SONUC: Eviniz sizin tum hayatinizin sekillenecegi, ailenizle ve dostlarinizla hayatinizin en guzel zamanlarini gecireceginiz, hayat tarzinizini, zevkinizi, kisiliginizi yansitan yerler. Inanilmaz zaman ve butce istiyor. Sarfettiginiz emegin ve paranin karsiligini gormek en tabi hakkiniz. Yolunuza her turlu zorluklar cikacaktir, yilmayin, sonunda kazanan siz olacaksiniz. Hersey bittiginde, ayaklarinizi uzatip “bu benim eserim” demek dunyanin en guzel seyi. Cekinmeyin, bu surecten gecen insanlara ulasin, eminim onlarin cikarttigi derslerden sizin de payiniza dusen birseyler olacaktir.


Kissadan hisse; beni taniyanlar bilir, her turlu sorunuz ve sorununuz icin cekinmeden ulasin bana, bilgi ve tecrubenin paylasilmasi gerektigine inananlardanim. Kolayliklar ve esenlikler dilerim…

How to spend time in our little green home




Eat, eat, eat...
Eat the best food money can not buy in the big cities, even better...
You can pick your vegetable from the fields around, you'll taste the best tomatoes ever.
You can buy fresh fish just off the hook from the local fisherman. The better thing would be you catch yourself, great spots for fishing including spearfihing.
You can visit Apollon Kasap in Gulpinar for the best red meat grass fed around our village; lamb chops is my favourite, try home made sucuk (spicy Turkish sausage).
Fridays farmers market in Ayvacik, very colourful, not only to feed your body also to feed your eyes and soul.
Saturdays Gulpinar has small market in the morning period, you should make it before noon. Local ladies are selling their products from their little farms.

If you don't like cooking there is also solution for that as well. Here are couple of recommendation where you can eat and enjoy the beach at the same time;

Sokakagzi Balikci Kahvesi
While driving towards Behramkale direction, turn right after Koyunevi, take the road towards the coast from the crossroad.
The view is fascinating while driving down.
When you arrive to the beach, turn right. In couple of hundred meters you'll find Balikci Kahvesi which used to be part of an old olive oil factory.
Sevinc is a local lady from Koyunevi. What she serves is whatever locals would eat, homecooking. Everything in the season, nothing fancy but all healthy and tasty. Try her ayran or yogurt, she makes the yogurt herself and the source is her own grassfed free range cows.



Sivrice Muammer Can
Continue the coast towards the lighthouse. You'll see the big village square where you'll see the beautiful willow tree. You'll see Muammer Can's little run down restaurant by the sea, literally on the water. The appearance is not that attractive but I can guarantee satisfaction about the sea food. Local fisherman Tuncay Cetin brings the fish every morning fresh and you always get fresh food there. Very simple but tasty.





Cagin
On the other side of the little harbour you'll find Cagin. It is a little friendly spot. My favourite spot to swim and snorkel. You dive to the aquarius water from the rocks. Don't forget Deniz Ozen's little art gallery and workshop. You can find local art and crafts if you want to take gifts back home. And she is a great person to know for that area, super friendly, a great friend of mine.



Assos Yildiz Saray
Assos is my love, the reason why I choose to live in the are, little antique harbour surrounded by historic stone buildings. There is some kind of magic in this little harbor.
From Behramkale follow the 'Antik Liman' sign to the harbor, my favorite is Yildiz Saray, the first stone building on the left. Family run business, dad catches the fish, mom cooks, son serves, great combination. They have a platform on the water. Enjoy your dinner while watching the sea. The best food in the area, very rich, unique, traditional meze selection, most of the greens comes from their own garden, highly recommended.









Babakale Denizhan Fish Restaurant
Babakale is a little fisherman's village, no charm left after they turned the cute little harbour into a huge concrete pile but still the best seafood from local catch. Follow Babakale signs from Gulpinar. Denizhan is a roof top fish restaurant, very friendly atmosphere, you'll enjoy both food and the view.
Babakale is named after the castle 'kale', worths visiting if you are interested in seeing historic places.
Another detail; Babakale is the most western point of Turkey and facing west, you'll enjoy the magnificent sunsets.




Akliman
Turn right while driving from Gulpinar to Babakale and follow the signs to the beach. You'll be driving through the olive grooves, just follow the dirt road.
There are couple of cafes on the beach which I don't find the food very special but the service is great. It feels great having your cold drink of snacks served to your chez-lounge while you are chilling on the beautiful sandy beach.
