The Little Building Company is a full-service contractor based in Peterborough, Ontario. Our mission is to provide a high-quality design and building service that delights our clients and enhances the beauty and utility of their cottages and homes. We strive to make the whole creative building experience enjoyable, from initial design ideas to project completion. If you love your home or cottage and dream of making it even better, we’d love to hear from you.

“We love our little building! We had such a small space to work with and weren’t sure what would be possible. Sean and Dave custom-designed the perfect storage building for the end of our driveway. Now all our kids’ bikes and outdoor gear fit in one place, the building looks great and ties together nicely with the colour and style of our home. It was a real pleasure to work with these guys – highly recommended!”
— Christie - Peterborough, ON

Our process is designed to bring you peace of mind from first concept to final completion.

Because how the work gets done is just as important as the work itself.

“We could not be happier with our renovated bunkie and killer treehouse! Sean was a great collaborator. He and his team took our ideas, improved upon them, and the result was even better than we imagined. Even though we were based in the city while the work was happening, we were kept in the loop with regular phone and photo updates. We would definitely recommend The Little Building Company.”

Sean Harris and Dave Conroy have found their dream job in the beautiful Kawarthas. They love designing and building spaces for living and playing  Ever since meeting at Fleming College’s School of Sustainable Building, Design, and Construction, they recognized in each other shared values of integrity, high work ethic, and an appreciation for hard work and fun times. They gained years of professional experience on their own until 2015, when they united their values and passions into The Little Building Company.

As positive word of mouth has spread, the Little Building Company has grown to keep up with the demand. We are thrilled to have a great team of skilled builders working with us who share both our respect for our customers property and our common values.


“We had The Little Building Company build an addition onto our cottage and are very pleased with all aspects of the project. From the initial design through the building process, Sean and Dave communicated regularly with us, were professional to work with, and made the project enjoyable. Sean and Dave dealt with a couple small concerns promptly and professionally and were a pleasure to work with.”
