The aim of this study is to prepare comprehensive and reliable documentation about construction techniques and materials of traditional houses in Güdül, district of Ankara, considering construction processes. For this purpose, studies about general features and history of Güdül as well as preservation activities in the settlement were collected and reviewed. By evaluating collected information from literature research and documentation of collected data on site surveys, architectural characteristics of Güdül houses were defined. The houses which represent the traditional Güdül houses and allow the observation of original construction techniques used in Güdül houses were surveyed and documented. All components of structural and architectural elements were analyzed and grouped in terms of similarities and differences in construction techniques, forms and materials of the elements. With an overall evaluation of all documented data and information gathered from surveys and local master builders, construction processes of traditional Güdül houses were explained briefly.
