A chance meeting in a subdivision in Smyrna, TN in the early 2000s resulted in a dynamic duo of builder and realtor homebuilding team. In 2004, Michael McCann (builder) and Mitchell Bowman (realtor) began a creative relationship to help people realize their homebuilding dreams. As a result, Michael’s Homes, LLC was created.
At the onset of our business, Michael and Mitchell found what was to become the Michael’s Homes niche. They discovered that many clients were willing to purchase a home if they were allowed to make modifications to the current selections inside the home. At this point, Michael and Mitchell decided they would create a process to accommodate the changes clients wanted to make to the existing stock plans. Creating this process would be the differentiator from other stock plan builders, as this process provided customers the opportunity to do some customization.
The process was painful at times, but they learned to adapt and make the process possible, which would pay off down the road. As the recession hit in 2008, Michael and Mitchell proved to be flexible enough to continue helping clients build to suit, which not only saved the business, but continued to allow us to grow as a company.
Since 2008, Michael’s Homes, LLC has continued to evolve. To date, we now have a total of 21 employees. We build mainly in Rutherford and Hamilton County with home prices ranging from the high $200,000s to the high $600,000s, depending on the location. Michael’s Homes, LLC now holds a full-time designer/drafter to draw or modify any house plans. We also have a selections coordinator to help clients with the exterior/interior selection choices.
In 2012, we implemented a new mobile application to help streamline the building activity. This application helps with all communications being made to clients as well as the subcontractors. It also allows the clients to see the status of their home, overages due, approved selections, plans, photos, etc. As of 2016, we have even added remodels and swimming pools to our resume.
Michael’s Homes has been recognized and won several awards over the last several years. In 2016 we were voted Rutherford County’s Best Outdoor Living and Master Suite by the Rutherford County Home Builder’s Association. In 2017 Michael’s Homes was 1 of 2 American companies to represent the United States at the 11th Saint-Gobain Gypsum Awards in Lisbon, Portugal. We were also voted 2017 “Showcase Home of the Year” by HBA of Greater Chattanooga and in 2018 voted number 1 in Chattanooga’s Best of the Best builder category.
There is a misconception around custom building. Typically, people see dollar signs as soon as they hear the words “custom build,” but you can almost build a semi-custom home for the same cost as a new home purchase. Whether you’re looking for a new home build, a garage added, or even a pool installed, Michael’s Homes, LLC has the systems, solutions, and flexibility to meet anyone’s needs. If you can dream it, Michael’s Homes, LLC can build it.
