Story: IKEA to Sell Flat Pack Houses

From the BBC on June 26, 2019:

Ikea could be building homes in the UK after a council in the south of England agreed to work with a developer owned by the flat-pack retailer. Worthing Council is considering a deal with BoKlok, owned by Ikea and construction company Skanska, to build up to 162 homes in the seaside town. BoKlok's homes are factory-built and priced after calculating how much owners can afford after the cost of living is taken into account.
