We are an alternative building team based in Turkey. We essentially build with earth, straw and wood, usually housing in the countryside. We have worked with volunteers for years now, and it is partly thanks to them that our buildings have become reality. We are looking for people who want to perfect their building skills. Some past experience is required.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Volunteers will be totally immersed in the construction process, working alongside the team and learning from the actual work on a daily basis. This can be physically demanding and we are looking for people under 40, with a high interest in craftsmanship. We see volunteers more as apprentices willing to learn the skills than free laborers.
Note: we cannot host pets.
The project we are currently working on is located in the Kazdağlar mountains near Bayramiç and Çan (Çanakkale).
This year's work will include treehouses, platforms and a 50m2 guesthouse. Mostly woodwork and possibly interior plasters by the end of the season.
IMPORTANT: The minimum stay is 3 weeks.
We are primarily accepting people experienced with building, but also helpers for kitchen work.
Two showers and dry toilets are available, but volunteers have to camp.
