"A couple of carpenters would be fine, and general volunteers to paint - and landscapers," Kirt Rebello, vice president and chief projects officer for Homes for Our Troops, said Friday.
The purpose is to get Marine Sgt. Brian Johnston, 26, into the home at 37 Godiva Lane by the holidays.
Rebello said completion of work by Thanksgiving might not be feasible, but Christmas is a target.
Volunteers are asked to arrive at the site, across from 200 Skinner Hill Road, at 8 a.m. today and 10 a.m. Sunday.
Johnston, originally from East Hartford, was wounded in 2004 outside Fallujah, Iraq, when an improvised explosive device hit his vehicle. He lost his right leg and arm in the attack.
Johnston's house is in a new development off Skinner Hill Road. Rebello said it is about 1,200 square feet and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
He said it is specially adapted for a person with Johnston's injuries.
Johnston's house is the second that Homes for Our Troops has built in Coventry. The group completed a house this year on Cedar Swamp Road for Marine Sgt. Jared Luce.
Luce lost both legs and sustained injuries to his left hand and eye in 2005, also when a roadside bomb hit his vehicle in Iraq.
He occupies his home, which took a little less than a year to build, with his wife, Melanie, and three children, Caelan, Donovan, and J.J.
Johnston is single, Rebello said.
When work on Johnston's house was begun in June, John Gonsalves, the president of Homes for Our Troops, said it was the first time the group had two houses under construction in the same town.
For information or to volunteer, call Rebello.
Homes for Our Troops is a nonprofit group that, at no cost to service members, provides housing with special adaptations for severely wounded veterans.
It has been involved in the construction of dozens of homes nationally.
COVENTRY - A Massachusetts-based organization that builds housing for veterans is seeking volunteers to help build a home in town for an East Hartford vet badly wounded in Iraq.
