Furnace in traditional home (Sobiyah)

November 26, 2014  •  Category: ,


In most traditional homes in the Lebanese rural areas, this furnace (sobiyah) is used to heat the home. It is also used to make tea or heat food. A few logs are swiftly lit-up and it feels toasty warm within minutes. Now the family, neighbors and friends can gather around, sip on some tea or maté (if in the Chouf mountains) and visit.
