Scenic Mountainside Views With Topsider Homes

This coastal Washington state home uses a combination of slab-on-grade and pedestal foundations.

Topsider’s unique pedestal foundations and flexible building system make for spectacular panoramic views, is adaptable to practically any terrain, and can make an unbuildable site buildable. Difficult terrain has been one of Topsider’s specialties since 1968. In fact, the first Topsider Homes were built on the side of mountains in Boone, NC.

This pedestal home sits on the side of a mountain in Hawaii and provides its owners with breathtaking ocean views.The most scenic building sites are often among the most difficult to build on - especially those on mountainside slopes.

While most conventional homes built on steep or sloping terrain require extensive and expensive site preparation and elaborate foundations, Topsider Homes’ unique pedestal foundation makes it easy and much less costly. This foundation approach and our efficient Post & Beam panelized building system also helps minimize crew size, on-site materials storage requirements and associated problems ranging from weather damage to vandalism.

Our team has more than four decades of experience with home construction on challenging terrain, and that experience and our in-house technical services range from the earliest stages of permitting through completion of the project.
