Unlimited Design Possibilities

unlimited_house_desingsTopsider’s in-house design staff is skilled at designing homes in a wide range of aesthetic and architectural styles.

Current building material technologies and the flexibility of Topsider Homes’ Post & Beam building system make it easier than ever to get just the right look and style for your new home.

Today’s new exterior siding materials are green, low-maintenance and provide unmatched durability. These materials, when properly married with the right design will enhance the appearance and value of your new home.

Some of the architectural styles available from Topsider include Mediterranean, Southwest, Craftsman and Caribbean – as well as more traditional themes like low-country and log. And Topsider Homes offers name brand siding and trim materials such as HardieBoard®, LP SmartSiding®, Azek® and Cultured Stone®, along with traditional stucco, vinyl and log finishes.

Waterfront & Lake House Plans

waterfront_lakefront_houseplansTopsider Homes has specialized in lakefront and coastal setting homes for over forty-five years. We offer many small house designs, as well as large luxury homes ideal for lakefront or coastal settings where the terrain may be steep, or where elevation is required to protect against flooding or storm surge.

Topsider’s unique prefabricated home building system is extremely flexible and only limited in design by one’s imagination. Each Topsider Home is crafted to individual needs and carefully engineered to meet the demands of each building site and the local building codes.

Once designed, building components are precision fabricated to the highest quality standards in our modern manufacturing facilities in Clemmons, North Carolina. These components are then shipped to building sites worldwide where local builders easily and efficiently assemble them.

In addition to the strength and efficiency of building with Topsider’s building system, beautiful exposed beams, vaulted  ceilings throughout and floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows make Topsider Homes perfect for exploiting the views of the natural environment – whether lakeside or along the sea coast.

Since 1968 literally thousands of unique Topsider Homes have been built across the country and abroad in every conceivable waterfront and coastal setting.

Hurricane Homes: Topsider Customer Testimonials

Topsider Homes Reviews - Hurricane Homes“After Hugo came through, there were some houses with no roofs or windows. Some wood homes were just not even there anymore. My Topsider Home looked like there hadn’t even been a hurricane. The house was practically untouched.”

– Captain Ted McDavitt, Topsider Owner, U.S. Virgin Islands (Click here to view his video on YouTube)

“We built on the water’s edge in the early-1980’s, and we were in the direct path of Hurricanes Rita and Ike. In spite of sustained winds in excess of 100 mph and storm surge that nearly wiped Beaumont off the map, we had no damage to speak of.”

– Hubert Spradling, Beaumont, TX, after Hurricanes Rita and Ike

“I was amazed. The house is glass all around, and had more than 100 trees around it. Not one pane of glass broke. From inside the house, you wouldn’t even know there had been a hurricane.”

– Shaun Washburn, Perkinston, Mississippi, after Hurricane Katrina

“The wind got up to around 90 miles per hour and the tides were up pretty high, but we were fine. Some homes not terribly far away simply disappeared.”

– Bill Applegate, Shell Point, Florida, after Hurricane Dennis
