Testimonials

The Fourth Pig is the only company that I ever want to invite back
for future projects.

"Although we have had several companies do work for us in the past, The Fourth Pig is the only company that I ever want to invite back for future projects. We hired them to completely gut and redo the basement and main floor of our house over a period of four months. 

Aside from the high quality of work they did they were always on-time, completely transparent with pricing and material costs, and always went the extra mile to make sure that things were done to our satisfaction. At the end of the project we were left with a beautiful new home and no surprise costs.

Since then we have hired them to do a couple of smaller jobs and had the same experience each time. During all of our experiences with them we never once felt like we were being taken for a ride, which was a nice change from pretty much every other contractor we have dealt with. Thanks Piggies!"

Not only are they straw bale experts as their name suggests, they can tackle all forms of residential construction.

"I have worked with the Fourth Pig Co-op for years now. They are a passionate group of people concerned with both the environment and great construction. Not only are they straw bale experts as their name suggests, they can tackle all forms of residential construction.  The crew works well with my hands on architectural approach and are creative with site specific solutions."

We would recommend them without reservation to anyone looking for a builder.

When we were looking for a builder to help us with our straw bale retrofit, we weren't really sure that what we were envisioning could be done. The Fourth Pig are so competent in what they do that we knew we had the right team and we were proven right.

During the entire project they were sensitive to our needs and they were able to offer helpful advice even when we weren't sure what it was that we were looking for.  In the end, our house is a beautiful, sustainable and healthy home that could not have come about if it were not for the Fourth Pig Worker Co-op and we would recommend them without reservation to anyone looking for a builder."

What a great experience we had with Fourth Pig. We cannot recommend them highly enough to anyone that is looking to do any kind of renovation.

What a great experience we had with Fourth Pig. We cannot recommend them highly enough to anyone that is looking to do any kind of renovation. Why were they so great to deal with? In an industry that is highly unregulated, where standards are all over the map, and sexism and homophobia abound, the Fourth Pig crew had an incredibly high bar for work standards, finishing work, equity, respect and transparency in the entire process. They were absolutely the best trades people we dealt with on every front. Their commitment to environmental builds was the cherry on top - our renovation was made so much the better for this, without huge additional costs. Hands down and without hesitation, hire them!
