Boxabl Homes have taken the world by storm
The tiny house movement is gathering steam, not just in the United States, but all across the globe. In the US, a study by IPX 1031, a financial company, found that 86% of first-time home buyers would buy a tiny house as their starter home. This is huge. It has also pushed innovation to new limits. A new company named Boxabl is making waves with its new retail home sales model. The company has pioneered a new way to build homes right out of their megafactory assembly line in Las Vegas. Imagine a home that contains all your essentials and even luxury amenities, all built at the same speed it takes to assemble a new laptop. Simply amazing!
According to founder and CEO, Paolo Tiramani, “living with less does not mean living with less quality”. Even though some people consider Boxabl homes “tiny homes”, a standard Boxabl home comes with 9.5-foot ceilings, 8-foot windows, is fully furnished, and comes with all the appliances. The price tag? An affordable $49,500. The home can be delivered and set up anywhere within the United States.

Of course, Elon has one
Sure, Elon Musk can live anywhere in the world, but the tech billionaire shacks up in a tiny house about the size of a two-car garage near SpaceX in Boca Chica, TX. But being Elon Musk, this is no ordinary tiny house. The Casita by Boxabl is an energy-efficient, low maintenance 375-square-foot prefab that’s delivered on the back of a semi-truck and craned in place. The roughly 20×20-foot cube is move-in ready within hours, and starts at around $49,500.
Compact, the studio-like floor plan includes a full-size kitchen with standard-sized appliances and a full bathroom on one side, and a living room and bedroom on the other. The waitlist for this tidy, energy-efficient, box house is roughly 50,000 orders strong. Why the interest? Boxable builds Casitas to be pretty bombproof: The walls are made from steel, concrete, and insulating foam so rot resistance and energy efficiency are built-in. The walls, floors, and roof are strong enough to resist hurricane-force winds and snow loads. Because there isn’t any wood lumber or drywall, you won’t have to worry about mold if it floods—the house drains itself like water shoe.
