    We live in Çanakkale Turkey. I am Canadian and my husband is Turkish. We bought land in a small villiage 7 km from the city. We are building a 280 sq m wood house. We are looking for men or women that have building experience. We have all the materials and we would like to have it built by October. We live in the city close to the city of Troy. Çanakkale has great beaches and weather and food. I live in a luxury apt and will give a room and board to who like to visit our beautiful city and work in our small villiage.

It is peaceful here and the city is only 100 thousand. We have many things for you to do here when your not working. The culture is rich and the people are super friendly.

    We are looking for men or women that have building experience with wood homes. We are at the framing stage and need some extra hands. Worker must be able to nail and cut using various saws. Understand how building construction works that would benefit us. We are on a short timeline to finish. We have never built a house before so if your experienced then the project will go faster. We have a good knowledge but experience would be greatly an advantage.
