Topsider Homes is now promoting, in a great manner, the octagonal design through its prefabricated, custom-designed homes.
The Octagonal design of construction of course is nothing new. It has been there for thousands of years. The Tower of the Winds in Athens, built approximately in 300 B.C, the Palatine Chapel in Charlemagne’s Cathedral in Aachen, Germany which has a double shell octagonal dome etc are among the earliest octagonal structures in the world. In the US, the Octagonal homes first became popular in the late 19th century and the first notable octagonal house, 'The Octagon', was built in 1801. (It was designed by Dr. William Thornton for Col. John Tayloe III.) Anyhow, after the 19th century, there was a decline in the popularity of the octagonal design.
Topsider Homes, with its base in Clemmons, North Carolina, USA, has anyhow been promoting the construction of Octagonal homes, designing and manufacturing its octagonal structures to custom specifications. The company makes unique octagonal homes, which can be built on a wide range of foundation types, including pedestals, pilings, basements, slab and crawl-spaces. These octagonal homes, adaptable to any terrain and any climate, permit 360 degree views making them very popular in vacation and scenic destinations, such as on the beach or the side of a mountain. They are also ideal for residential areas, retirement homes, home additions etc.
Topsider Homes prefers the octagonal design owing to some advantages that it has over the usual square design. It should be noted that the octagonal design of construction is economic as it encloses space more efficiently than the square design. This is because an octagon approximately has 20 percent more space than a square with the same perimeter. Another advantage is that an octagonal structure minimizes the external wall surface area, thereby reducing heat loss and gain. Octagonal structures also allows for panoramic views and easier orientation on the building site. It also permits more natural light, aiding in the reduction of electric bills for illumination and heating in the winter.
Topsider Homes' octagonal homes are now very popular, among all sections of its customers.
