Innovative low cost housing – Modular Homes

We provide access to quality affordable accommodation in an innovative way by creating module homes made from shipping containers. These containers are an environmental solution to housing. They recycle-able and have limitless up-cycle possibilities. Very often the basic need is for affordable accommodation and can be the first obstacle for someone to overcome. Once this need is met and people feel safe, then they can look to the future with renewed optimism.

The project includes assessment, mentoring, training and work experience. We are committed to establishing a sound base, working towards sustainability.

 

Homes First Trading Subsidiary Company

Amazing Grace Spaces has a trading subsidiary company Homes First.  The Company supplies bespoke modular homes and sleeping pods to local Councils, Housing Associations and other housing providers.

Profits from the company go back into Amazing Grace Spaces so we can achieve our charitable aims and support homeless people.

Six modular homes have already been purchased by Wrexham local council and Merthyr Valleys Homes and are already in situ with some already tenanted.
