Our mission is to foster ecologically balanced methods of construction and energy production in order to promote more sustainable and healthy communities.
Sustainable building means a cleaner environment, more efficient energy generation and use, more effective use of building materials, less toxic living spaces.
Our work includes custom homes, additions, and renovations for residential and commercial clients.
We produce high performance buildings. We are trained and experienced with Passive House (PH) building, net zero and carbon zero buildings.
We recommend an “integrated design process” for projects. This approach brings together the key stakeholders (owners, architects, engineers, tradespeople and others) to create a project plan.
We can be hired as a coach to help you through a project you are managing or as a consultant on your project (such as around building envelopes and other Passive House processes).
The Fourth Pig is also committed to education as a crucial part of promoting more sustainable shelters. We host presentations and provide hands-on workshops.
You can find our upcoming public events on our events page.
We also publish an e-newsletter, "Force of Nature" about natural and green building and sustainable energy. You can sign up here.
