The Powers Home
Amber and Sean Powers were expecting their second child when they realized it was time to start looking for a home that they could raise a family in.
The couple, who met in Chattanooga after moving to the city less than a decade ago, had put down roots in the Ooltewah area and knew it was a place they could see themselves living for years to come.

“We actually lived 10 minutes down the road, and we loved it there,” explains Amber. “So, we started searching for something in the area but kept coming up empty-handed.”
The Powers had a few things they knew they wanted their new residence to have. Among them were a little bit of land, a spacious master suite, and a separate bathroom for each of their children. After months of not being able to find the perfect property, the duo decided they would build it themselves.
“The second I mentioned building a home, Sean loved the idea,” says Amber. “He was on board right away.”
The couple, with the help of McCoy Homes, began building their new house in the spring of 2019, and by October of that year, their family-friendly farmhouse was complete.
