The homes are being sold by Ikea
The first flat-pack homes designed for people on low incomes are to be officially unveiled on Tyneside.
Junior Housing Minister and Hartlepool MP Iain Wright will perform the opening then tour the 93-home St James Village in Felling, near Gateshead Stadium.
The timber-framed BoKlok structures cost up to £149,995 and are only available to first-time buyers earning between £15,000 and £35,000.
The first tenants of the homes are to move in over the next few weeks.
The homes are being sold by furniture giant Ikea, with a one-bedroom flat starting at £99,950 and rising to £124,950 for a two-bedroom apartment.
Houses start at £132,500 for two bedrooms, and £149,995 buys a three-bedroom home.
Alan Prole, managing director of Live Smart@Home, said: "For the first time in the UK, people will be able to experience what it could be like living in a BoKlok home.
"This is a very exciting time for everyone concerned in this development and we are now looking forward to welcoming our first residents."
Plans for a similar development in Sunderland are being considered.
