Welcome Home

The Little Pig Building Co has been building environmentally friendly homes and business premises since 1992. We have a wealth of experience and expertise to help you make your dream home a reality.

We take pride in exceeding customer expectations and working closely with our clients to ensure we understand exactly what they want.

My family and I live in an environmentally friendly home and want to help others experience the long-term benefits of living and working in an environmentally sound, natural, well insulated building – whether that be built of straw, timber or brick.

I hope you enjoy looking around the website. And remember, if you have any questions, just email us or give us a call – 0274 480 465.

All the best,
Nick Marer

The standard of workmanship was impeccable and the tradesmen were always friendly and trustworthy. They were also quick to make good the inevitable minor repairs which needed to be done after the job was complete.
I have no hesitation in recommending the company to any future clients.

At every stage in the building process, Nick was always available when we wanted to talk through plans and progress. He organised all the sub contractors and listened when we had queries or concerns, remaining personable and approachable throughout.
Above all, the build remained within budget, which was a significant factor for us.

Although we didn’t build a straw bale house we still wanted our house to be energy efficient. Nick was a great source of ideas for how we could achieve this. We have now experienced our first winter in our new house and have been delighted by how thermally efficient it is. We love our new home and can only say that we enjoyed the process of building with the Little Pig Building Company from start to finish.
