I will discuss a family of solvable 3D lattice models that have a ``trivial" bulk, in which all excitations are confined, but exhibit topologically ordered surface states.  I will discuss perturbations to these models that can drive a phase transition in which some of these excitations become deconfined, driving the system into a phase with bulk topological order.
