GUEST ARTICLE: New modular housing firm launches crowdfunding appeal

  • 8 Feb 2024

A new housing firm born out of the Ukrainian Crisis has this week launched a crowd-funding appeal to raise capital for its planned global expansion.

Pre-registrations are now open and from 19 February investors can buy shares in HOMErs – the company at the forefront of self-build modular housing, through the Seedrs platform.

Founder, technology entrepreneur Alexander Stepura, began designing and producing modern modular homes last year from his vending machine factory in Kiev, initially to re-house his workers, made homeless by war.

The firm, which is set to revolutionise the housing market with its cost-effective innovative designs, has grown organically. It has recently expanded operations with the opening of new production facility in Slovakia to service the increasingly global customer base of individuals and developers, meeting growing social and lifestyle housing needs.

HOMErs, acts not only as a solution for governments and charities needing crisis housing (i.e. Ukrainians and other refugees), but also for young first-time buyers and businesses offering housing solutions, homeowners wanting second properties and glamping sites.


Their affordable, quick-to-assemble homes, offer both simple designs and ultra-modern flat pack versions, made from galvanised steel frame structures, with wall panels that are light, thermally efficient polyurethane. Prices of homes are circa €1,300/m2 indoor and €650/m2 outdoor (factory gate prices) as of Feb 2024 and their design means low transport and assembly costs. The homes also come fully furnished within the price.

Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency is key within both the HOMErs production process and for the occupant, with solar panels and soon to be added battery and energy management systems. The houses are unique, differing from competitors as they offer a superior quality product at a lower price per square metre/foot per home.

Chris Baxter, Non-Executive Board Member, HOMErs, comments: “With our new factory now open, we are ready to confidently trade with the world.

“HOMErs houses have a distinctively modern look and feel, and a quality of construction which contrasts dramatically with the second-rate perception of post war pre-fab construction. And our unique modular design provides developers worldwide with the ability to adapt to shifting demands efficiently at a lower cost than traditional methods.

“By creating affordable options for different demographics, our modular construction allows developers to stay agile and responsive and offers more attractive returns on investment. The technology has moved on leaps and bounds,’ says Baxter who is now living in one of the houses while his own Surrey property is undergoing extensive renovation.

“Trust me my wife would not have signed up for this if the product was not so compelling and comfortable. We are confident in HOMErs‘ success and now is the time to invest.”
