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.

    It makes me both sad and angry to have to re-post this from our northern beach member Tab Winborne, but if it will help to solve the crime (and yes, it is a crime), it is reason enough to do so.
    Tab writes:
    "Let my guard down yesterday afternoon and went fishing 1/2 day. Sometime between 7 pm last night and 7 am someone entered 2040 sandpiper road and stole 7 boxes of this flooring. Just under $2,000.00. I have my suspicions but I am offering $1,000.00 reward to any person who can name this person(s). Of course you will be anonymous. I hate a thief .... it is not the money you see! It’s the violation... I know every body here and one of you does not deserve my trust."
    If you need help in contacting Tab, please call our office for a phone number. And, as always, please do not take matters into your own hands.

    Can't wait to see this one up close and personal in the 27th Annual Outer Banks Home Builders Association's Parade of Homes - October 10-13. We do not yet have a house number because the entry period is still open. Builder members, if you think you can give this one a run for the money in the judging, you still have time to enter! #OBXPOH #hereb4uknowit

    Talking the talk and then walking the walk (with funding) - it doesn't get much better than that. The need for skilled tradespeople is urgent, critical and necessary.

    So, this happened. FINALLY! The beginning of our office exterior makeover! I came off the bypass ready to pull into the driveway this morning - and couldn't for the amount of equipment everywhere. But, thanks to the hard-working men of Island Concrete and owner Joe Parnell, the demo phase is over! And now we watch for the transformation to begin!
