A war of any magnitude shakes the human and material capitalism of the country. Transcending boundaries, it casts a ripple effect on its neighbors as well. One such horrendous war of our generation is the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, unfolding humanitarian tragedy and brutality. The war has led to the destruction of more than 149,000 residential buildings and numerous families being displaced from their roots.
As a ray of hope for the homeless, a Ukrainian company plans rescue as per Business Insider. Two Ukrainian robotics entrepreneurs have launched HOMErs, a range of factory-made tiny homes that can be constructed within days. By offering to provide shelter at this crucial time to desperate Ukrainian families, HOMErs has shown bravery to do the unthinkable.
These tiny homes are grid-connected and fully furnished. Basic amenities form an integral part of these abodes. A small but cozy bedroom can be used to unwind by the end of the day. Despite the space constraint, the house is big enough to make space for an additional bedroom.
These homes feature an open plan and are fully functional with a kitchen and bathroom. A residential kitchen with an electric stove, a fridge, and a dishwasher fulfills the basic culinary requirements. The HOMErs prefab modular tiny homes are a feasible housing solution wherein the entire structure can be hauled on a truck bed to the site where they are required.
Multiple three-by-three-meter units, which can be expanded, form a part of each home. The use of strong, light, high insulation and sustainable materials throughout has kept the prices low and makes transportation and assembly easy.
Currently, an average of 10-15 homes are being produced in a month by the HOMErs factory in Kyiv, it’s not a big number considering the requirement so they’re looking to scale up production in the near future.
Apart from building tiny homes in Ukraine, the company is expanding its business to the UK as well, where it plans to offer a solution to Ukrainian refugees in need of temporary housing. Each home costs around $18,000 to make. Additional modules such as solar panels and battery installation add upward of $6,000 to the overall price.
