Every More Housing home meets and exceeds all UK building regulations and recommendations for space. These figures are no co-incidence, they’ve been collated from R&D that show the specific amount of space needed to create a home that boosts and protects the positive mental health of its occupants.
We have taken the time to research deeply the necessary requirements to ensure that people’s states of mind are boosted.
Why people use shipping containers as a solution for homelessness baffles us - lack of space, storage, height, light and poor air circulation, only lead to more issues in the future. They are not a longterm healthy solution in any way - physically or mentally.
Compare them to a More Housing home where you open the door and are greeted with height and light. You are uplifted. Every single detail has been planned and created with eco-efficiency, for long-term use.
Living in any state of uncertainty for prolonged periods of time has been medically proven to be detrimental to mental health. The sheer amount of stress hormone: cortisol, released when living in fear is damaging to the brain’s ability to process and recall information. The nervous system is affected. Yet take away the daily issue of fear and replace it with stability, hope and certainty and you can watch someone flourish. Their self-worth is gently restored. They have a home. They can start to rebuild their life.
Small details, such as the ability to hang pictures on the walls, an act not possible with most other temporary housing, can significantly boost calm in the mind of the person dwelling in the space, making them believe that their time of uncertainty is over.
Working from home is now part of the ‘new normal’ and we’ve made sure that each More Housing home comes fully equipped with designated office space and furniture to enable each occupant to strive forwards.
The team at More Housing have worked to minimise future stress by making each home fully electrically charged so the ongoing cost of living is far lower than a standard house, minimising stress and paving the way realistically, for a positive future.
