Rebuilding after a natural disaster like Hurricane Ian, Dorian or Irma is not a simple task. Topsider Homes has decades of experience with hurricane and flood damage rebuilding in Florida and the Bahamas. We are experienced dealing with federal, state and local agencies like FEMA, the Army Corps of Engineers and even the SBA and other funding organizations that provide assistance during such events.


Topsider homes have survived direct hits from Ian, Dorian and Irma in Florida, the Bahamas and Virgin Islands.

Topsider Homes provides in-house design, engineering, and then fabricates easy-to-assemble high-quality home building components - all based on our Post & Beam, panelized technology. Local builders assemble and complete the homes. Our services include taking the technical lead for permitting and approvals, assistance in locating interested builders, logistical and project coordination – and technical assistance throughout.

To begin the process, we will propose new house design concepts and provide general cost guidance so that you will have an idea of the cost to rebuild with a Topsider Home. With no obligation our technical staff will do preliminary code research and determine the current state of building requirements – which are always in flux after disasters. And if you select Topsider Homes we become thoroughly engaged in every aspect of your rebuilding project from beginning to end..

Follow this link to view more than 300 online house plan concepts to choose from. Once you have selected a design that generally meets your needs, we will provide you with a No-Obligation Free Cost Estimate for that house built on your property. Ultimately, your home will be individually designed, but this preliminary estimate will provide a starting point from which to work for design and budgetary discussions – and it will help you to know early-on if Topsider Homes is a fit for your needs.
