Outer Banks Home Builders Association
The Outer Banks Home Builders Association is a professional trade organization dedicated to informing, educating and promoting the members of the building industry. Commonly known as the OBHBA, we were officially chartered by the National Association of Home Builders in 1979 and grew from about 37 people to our current number with a higher spike in the mid-2000’s. Our membership is comprised not only of licensed building contractors, but skilled trades people, building material suppliers, bankers, insurance agents, Realtors, decorators, designers, and many others who provide support services to the building industry on the Outer Banks. And our membership is growing again.
Additionally, our 500 members live and work in the communities where they build and are committed to building better homes as well as better lives through service to their community. Both individually and as an Association, they give back to our community, building handicap ramps, collecting and donating food and money to the local Food Pantry, awarding an average of $9,000 in scholarships to local students each year and supporting other local charities as requests come in. Many of our members are active as scout leaders, serve on town and county boards and are heavily involved in civic organizations, church and coaching. When you do business with members of the Outer Banks Home Builders Association, you are dealing with people who call this narrow strip of sand “home.” And it shows.

3 days ago by Outer Banks Home Builders AssociationYes, we are in full-blown Parade of Homes mode, but this announcement is worthy of interrupting all of that exciting publicity. If Hurricane Florence had come to visit us, we would not be having a Parade of Homes this year. So, now we can show our gratitude at being almost untouched and support the relief efforts of our State Association.
Hurricane Florence left a wide path of destruction throughout the entire state and especially in central and eastern North Carolina.

A hurricane warning and storm surge warning remain in effect for Dare County. Some areas, particularly N.C. Highway 12 on Hatteras Island, will continue to experience ocean overwash. Wind and rain are expected to continue. For updated weather information, visit http://www.weather.gov/mhx.

It won't hurt anything to pick up the yard debris, loose ornamental items, secure or stow porch furniture, etc. It appears that the impacts of this storm will be significant regardless of where she makes landfall - or even if she stays off the coast. Check lists are helpful. And, while it is far too soon to know the path or the outcome, we can know that being prepared will make a difference for life and property.
