Community builds new home for Seymour family

Posted:

SEYMOUR (WATE) - A Sevier County family has a new house to come home too now, courtesy of the community that surrounds them.

Jim and Denise Ipson couldn't afford to repair their damaged home.

That is, until the Live-It organization stepped in offering to build the couple a new home.

Hundreds of volunteers built the Ipsons a new home in just five days, debuting it Friday evening for the family.

"I'm in awe. I just could not believe that they built it so fast," Jim said. "I'm a carpenter and I can't believe building it in five days."
