Can anyone recommend a builder in Dalyan?

Hello, I am helping my parents relocate to Turkey.

They want to build there own property near Dalyan. We have been in Turkey together for last few weeks looking at land and meeting with various builders.

The builders we have seen have given quite different prices to build (we have asked them for $ per square meter for standard, good and excellent specification house) .. this is excluding pool, grounds etc.

Can any one recommend reasonable builder who is transparent on costs and not on par with UK?

Thanks
Phil

Have a chat to Isa, owner of the Cicek restaurant (on the corner opposite Metin Pizza). He has had a building business for years, and is most reasonable and a total gentleman.

Re: Can anyone recommend a builder?

I'd highly recommend Ismail Celik. He built our villa a couple of years ago and it turned out great. Before I signed up he took us to see some of the other villas he'd built; all very high quality. He's a native Dalyaner and is an engineer by trade. His office is near LT's Bar. He doesn't speak English so you'll need someone with you. His architect speaks great English.

I have had a villa built in Dalŷan .
Your a about to make a very important decision .

I had to keep tight control of my builder and get good independent legal support

I would be happy to give you my thoughts in private .
Dalyan has rogues who appear to be trustworthy and excellent .

Re: Can anyone recommend a builder?

We used Ismail Celic who built our villa in 2007 and would not hesitate to recommend him. We were very happy with the whole process, no nasty surprises along the way and the price we agreed initially was the price we paid upon completion. Our completed villa was very good quality and well finished inside and out to our specification.

Re: Can anyone recommend a builder?

We looked at maybe 30 villas plus off plan builds but in the end we bought a villa built by Ismail Celik who came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. He is not the cheapest but possibly the best. I believe that he is a fully qualified civil engineer as opposed to the "restaurant" builders. In the end it's down to want you want and expect for the price you are prepared to pay.

Suggest you try Ahmet Boge. He is an excellent builder, has excellent English. Office next to Captains Bar. Called Sultanhan Property. Understands English requirements

Re: Can anyone recommend a builder?

We used Mehmet Cobanoglu at Kaunos Tours next to the turtle roundabout. They are proper builders and nothing was too much trouble. Money was paid in instalments, photos were emailed almost everyday right from the very first day, contracts were in English and Turkish and we even had a 6 year guarantee which has not been needed. They were not the cheapest but we were not looking for cheap, we were looking for good and they were it. All in all VERY pleased with them and have no hesitation in recommending them. By the way we also live here all year round

As I said Isa has been a builder with his own company for years and years - restaurants have been his secondary business. I know a lot of restaurant owners, one in particular (Niobe, years ago) tell you they can build, but trust me when I say that Isa has had his building business for years, and never tells his restaurant customers he can build for them! Recommendation only!!

Re: Can anyone recommend a builder?

Getting a builder to build your house is the easy part. the hard part is all the new red tape with planning permissions etc. there is even a newish health and safety dept. that is making a name for itself imposing regulations, checking site workers insurance that kind of thing.
