Man builds ‘pool’ inside his home in Turkey’s southeast
ŞANLIURFAA man living in the Hilvan district of Şanlıurfa has constructed a makeshift pool inside his three-roomed home to cool off during the blistering summer months in the southeastern province.
“We built a pool inside our house, our room. The pool is very nice, I recommend it to everyone,” Haşim Kılıçoğlu, 35, told state-run Anadolu Agency on July 14.
Kılıçoğlu said he constructed the two-meter wide, three-meter-long “pool” because of the punishingly high temperatures in Hilvan during the summer.
“I’ve been working as a painter and I decided to build this pool in my home because it is very hot when I come home after work. Me and my children use it,” he added.
Saying he cannot afford a vacation with his family, Kılıçoğlu said he was able to build the pool using the construction skills he learnt at work.
“We can’t afford to go to places like [popular holiday destinations] Antalya, Marmaris or Muğla, so I built this pool using nylon and briquette,” he said.
