The Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station is one of Rodanthe's greatest treasures. This historical lifesaving station has been a popular attraction for Hatteras Island visitors for decades, and stands on the very edge of the small town of Rodanthe. Over the years, this station has been battered by hurricanes, ocean and soundside flooding, and ferocious gusts of winds, and yet it is still standing, and serves as a proud reminder of Hatteras Island and the Outer Banks' rich lifesaving history.
For more than 30 years, Kenrick J. Albaugh has been a time-tested and trusted builder and designer of high quality structures that can withstand the elements and the coastal atmosphere of the picturesque southern Outer Banks region. Based in the town of Avon in Hatteras Island, this building company can tackle a wide range of projects, from extensive remodels of existing properties, to the new construction of homes that will surely stand out on the Hatteras Island beach scene.
The company was founded by Kenrick (Rick) Albaugh in 1977 in his hometown of Houston Texas, and later moved to Hatteras Island where it blossomed due to a continual series of exceptional work and happy clients. Since landing on Hatteras Island, Kenrick J. Albaugh has been instrumental in the design and construction of a wide range of both commercial and residential properties, and every new project begins with design consultation and ends with furnishing and décor recommendations, based on the local environment. From the 15-page detailed cost analysis at the beginning of the project, to the use of the finest materials and finishing touches, there’s a reason why Kenrick J. Albaugh has been the builder of choice for a myriad of grand Hatteras Island residences.
