Following the devastating impacts of Covid-19, businesses are setting out the new normal – working from home. Resulting from social distancing regulations and fears of germ spreading, large corporations such as ‘Twitter’ and our local Dorset Council have already given permanent/part-time work from home. Even here at Wessex Eco and Huub we have colleagues working from their laptop at home. In fact, a study by Whereby found that 82% of companies are considering employing their staff from home full time.
Working in your own home has its benefits. No more astronomical fuel bills each week from commuting, you can wake up just before work starts and typically work in your comfies (unless you’re on a conference call of course) and you can spend more time with your loved ones. Although, for those working from home you know the struggles: screaming kids, TV distractions, no work friendly environment and a fridge which is always tempting you with 20 minute food breaks. We understand, working from home is not always as simple as it sounds.
For many, the pandemic has brought about the need to create a separate space which they can efficiently work from without the daily distractions of home life. For my brother-in-law this meant redesigning his spare room into a home office although the calls from his one year old son are a considerable distraction because he wants baby cuddles. All these factors have led to Huub receiving innumerable inquiries about home office installations – the fact is, home offices are a new necessity brought on by the pandemic.
Our Huubs are stylish modular buildings which are constructed on your property. Being modular, your Huub is made in a warehouse and re-built directly upon your chosen location – so it’ll be perfect from the start. Unique to Huub, our buildings have solar panel installations. This means that they can provide the electricity needed to power the lighting, appliances and even your laptop. Alongside the addition of a Tesla Powerwall, a Huub could reduce your energy bills by up to 90%. Working from home now sounds really good to me!
