Topsider Homes Makes it Easy to Start Your New Home Building Project

Since 1968 Topsider Homes has designed and shipped thousands of homes throughout the United States and internationally diverse locations ranging from the Bahamas to the Arctic Circle.  No matter where your home building project is located, our in-house design and technical staff, together with our many free services ranging from builder recruitment to building permit assistance, will help make your project go fast and smooth.

Topsider's Project Managers help our customers fine tune and customize their home designs to meet lifestyle and budget requirements.

Topsider Homes is a building system company that provides in-house design, consulting engineering and prefabricates custom home building components, all based on a unique post and beam, pre-engineered home building approach.  Our services are extensive and include assistance with all types of permitting requirements and approvals, logistical planning, builder recruitment, project coordination and much more.

All new home building projects start with house plans. Topsider Homes’ approach involves two stand alone steps – the first being the design phase and the second, the building phase.  We encourage clients to start the design phase as early as possible, so that they can get the preliminaries out of the way early in order to allow as much time as possible to prepare for the building phase.

Import Duty and Tax Free Building in the Bahamas will Expire in June 2017

This Topsider prefab home was built on the island of South Andros in the Bahamas. Topsider has been shipping prefab homes to the Bahamas since the 1960s.

In 2008, the Bahamian Parliament voted to make select islands Import Duty and Tax Free for new home construction.  This incentive, intended to stimulate jobs through tourism and construction, expires in June 2017.  Exempted islands include: Andros, Cat Island, San Salvador, Long Island, Rum Cay, Sweetings and Water Cays (Grand Bahamas), Grand Cay and Moores Island (Abaco), Crooked Island, Long Cay, Acklins, Ragged Island and Cays, Current Island (Eleuthera), Mayaguana, Inagua and Exuma.  This exemption amounts to saving of as much as 35% on Import Duty and 10% additional Tax on the value of imported building materials.  If you intend to beat the June 2017 deadline and take advantage of the Import Duty and Tax Exemptions, getting started now is critical.  Builders are already booking jobs into 2017 and by year-end 2016, finding a builder at any price may be a challenge.


Topsider’s unique Post & Beam, panelized building system is ideal for remote Bahamian building locations.  Our services include in-house design, consulting engineering for local building permits, builder recruitment, shipping logistics and job-site builder coordination.  Most importantly, Topsider Homes’ high quality prefab house structures and panels are easily and quickly assembled.  (Click HERE to watch the simple assembly sequence of a short stilt-pier home.)
