Specific to a location - in which case where? Otherwise for white goods research on line and go to chain stores like Euronics. We have bought a washing machine and 2 freezers on line and a fridge locally. It was all down to models available and price.

Ditto for plumbing supplies, but I tend to buy most of the plumbing bits in the local plumbing shop as these tend to be small items for maintenance although when I did a heating referb then I bought some on line due to availability/cost.

The on line shops have all operated a COD system and delivery is usually within 1-2 days.

You might look first in the MediaMarkt in Zalaegerszeg or the Euronics as Peter wrote for a kind of "base price" for appliances and then look if you can get a better price.

Re bathroom and heating stuff: there are several large shops in Keszthely on the main road with a large selection too.

In Nagykanizsa there is a plumbing shop called Viky which is at Nagykanizsa, Récsei út 1. That is the road that runs behind OBI. There is one guy there who speaks good English. Look carefully at the design of the toilet pans as they are not all the same as UK ones!

fidobsa _ I assume you are referring to the poo shelf! lol. Have spotted that quirk, not quite sure why it is like that, but no worse than the French 2 foot plates straddling a 'hole'! We will be needing septic tank and full plumbing for sanitation waste. a dry compost loo will have to suffice until we can get it all sorted. Thanks for the link to an assistant in a plumbing shop that has good English as my Hungarian will be stretched to the limit for everyday life to start with, let alone complex things like pipe diameters and thread counts.

Many years since I have had a Gusunder! My Aunty's old farm with only an outside loo in winter, no leccy, just candlelight and the only indoor plumbing was the cold tap in the kitchen. Brings back childhood memories of holiday visits.

Out of interest in these old houses with no sanitation for human waste, how did they manage the toilet necessities of life? Was it all 'bucket and chuck it?' Compost heap style?

Thanks digger 47, whereabouts are you? Would be nice to get to know some peeps over a mound of earth and a bottle of pálinka!

There was/is an outside loo which consisted of a hole in the ground about 1m3 which had an enclosure with boards and a seat and an ash bucket built on top of it. If the enclosure was wooden then this had the advantage that when the hole was within 30cm of the top (took years as the stuff composts itself) then the enclosure could be moved to another 1m3 hole, the remaining 30cm was filled with earth and a fruit tree planted on top. Many places in Hungary still have this for use when in the garden and I know a couple of places where this is still the only sanitation.

By the way the last time I used a guzunder was when I was in a village in the south of Belgium that had a cold water tap in the kitchen for drinking water only otherwise the well hand pump was used and the outside loo was across the yard and had no light. It was a bit chilly in the winter!! But that was 50+ years ago.

Digger47 are you sure that web address is correct? It goes to a wine barrel producers site?! As for keeping the wife, I am the wife :-P

Peter_In_Hungary - I shall look out for the best fruit trees on the plot! My Aunt's was in a little village not far from Bristol, she was very reclusive and short on cash, it was only 35yrs ago and she refused to modernise as it was too expensive and the candles worked well enough. At night she banked the fire and the range cooker.

It does but if you look for 'Other Products' it has some rather unusual & interesting products for the keeping of oneself smelling sweetly.
