Wow! It’s hard to believe that in just five-and-a-half short days we will ring in a new year. Where on earth did the time go? This year, 2016, has been uncharacteristically crazy – full of ups and downs for everyone but, by the grace of God, the McCoy Family did a lot more celebrating than lamenting this year.
For starters, Billy and I celebrated the birth of our very first grand baby this year. His name is Carter McCoy and he is perfect; from head to toe. Everyone said “He’ll change everything.” And, of course, they were right! He’s got us both wrapped around his chubby little finger, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. He is nine months old and just about to start walking. We laugh and say, “Get ready! He’s about to change everything. Again!”
In addition to celebrating Baby Carter’s arrival, Billy and I celebrated a marriage milestone: our 30th wedding anniversary. We marked the occasion with a private vow-renewal service on a secluded beach in Hawaii. While we were there, we were able to take a step back, count our many blessings and give thanks for them all. It was an incredible experience. And I am grateful to have shared it with such a worthy friend, partner and husband.
The McCoy Homes office has been abuzz with celebration, too. We’ve expanded our field team to include Buddy Bates and Beau Greco. Buddy is our newest Project Manager, and Beau is our newest Superintendent. They’re both perfect for the roles that they fill: detail oriented self starters with a heart for service. We’re so grateful that they chose to be on the McCoy Homes Team.
Our design team has given us reason to celebrate, also! The girls have been CRAZY BUSY getting all of our new design software set up. Billy and I are so proud of – and so grateful for – all of their hard work. It is because of their efforts that McCoy Homes is now able to… drum roll, please… produce 3D drawings of our kitchens and bath rooms! This is just one more way our team is simplifying and taking the stress out of residential construction.
Our marketing team has been busy this year, as well. We released our first television commercial (maybe you’ve seen it?), we revamped our website (how do you like it?) and we topped 5,000 followers (are you one of them?) on our social media platforms. One of OUR POSTS even went viral!
While 2016 was great, we’re really looking forward to 2017. We have a few big events on our calendar: The International Builders Show in Orlando and , of course, Chattanooga’s very own Home Show down at the Trade and Convention Center.
We’re currently pre-selling parcels in Ooltewah’s newest and most desirable development: Greystone Pointe. Though it may not look like much right now, Greystone is a McCoy Homes Development, and we are quite proud of it. A smaller development, Greystone will have a more intimate, neighborhood feel. Its location is absolutely perfect for work and play. Zoned for excellent Ooltewah schools, it will be a wonderful place to live and raise your family!
Lastly, we’re about to burst with excitement over the plans for our most recent development! But, we’re not quite ready to spill the beans, yet. Just know that sometime in the next couple of months the McCoy Homes Team is going to unveil a project – years in the making. And it’s going to be awesome!
Till then, we hope you have a wonderfully happy (and safe) New Year Celebration. We are so looking forward to visiting with you in 2017.
Connie & Billy McCoy
