Topsider Homes luxury prefab house built on Cat Cay Island, BAHAMAS

Built on the secluded Bahamian Island of Cat Cay, this beautiful low-maintenance Topsider Home was custom designed and engineered for easy assembly and finishing – and to withstand hurricane-force winds and the damaging effects of its tropical and salt-air environment.

Topsider Homes has been building homes in the Bahamas since the late-1960s. We have built in the Abacos, Exumas, Eleuthera, Long Island, Grand Bahama Island, Cat Cay and many of the other islands. We understand issues ranging from water-catchment to import duty and have relationships with Bahamian architects and engineers needed for obtaining building permits and approvals.

Topsider Homes prefab two-story house built on Great Exuma Island, BAHAMAS

Two-story homes like this one built on Great Exuma Island in the Bahamas can have two separate living/rental levels. Topsider Homes custom-designs each house and its services include permitting, builder recruitment, shipping logistics and overall project coordination.

Topsider provides a simplified approach for home building in the Bahamas with our Post & Beam and panelized building system with building components that are easily and simply assembled on-site by local builders. But what really separates Topsider Homes from others is that we offer clients a single and reliable source for design, engineering, permitting, building materials, shipping logistics, builder recruitment and project coordination.

This comprehensive approach dramatically reduces the risk of unknown and unforeseen costs that are frequently associated with remote site building in the Bahamas – and it assures that the end result will be to the highest quality standards.

The key to efficient homebuilding in the Bahamas is planning. Topsider Homes has a two-step “stand alone” approach for building; step one is the design, approval and builder recruitment phase, and step two is the building phase. During the design phase all of the unknowns become known, from design and site planning to permitting issues and construction costs.

Topsider’s Quality Prefab Patio House Designs and Guest House Plans are Great Ideas for “In-Law” Suites and “Granny Flats”

As the baby-boom generation continues to age, the trend of families adding an attached home addition as an “in-law” suite or a detached guest house as a “granny flat” is a growing trend.  These houses and home additions are generally small patio house designs with floor plans that are functional and handicap accessible.

In many instances zoning restrictions will determine whether the additional space can be a “free-standing” guest house-type design, or if it must be attached to the primary home.  In either case Topsider’s in-house design team can create home additions or guest houses to blend perfectly with existing architectural themes and building site demands.
