Boxabl prefab housing Elon Musk

Boxabl: Unboxing the future of prefab

A single tweet from a billionaire helps launch prefab Boxabl to paper billionaire.

When Elon Musk recently tweeted he prefers living in a rented US$50,000 prefab Casista by Boxabl, the directors of the company, which started in 2017, probably took of vertically and hit the Karman line. And, they weren’t premature in rejoicing in what was, probably, the single most rewarding few lines of pubic relations any company could dream of.

The Las Vegas business now has a wait list of 47,000 people who want one. To put that in context, that’s over US$1 billion worth of reserved prefab Boxabl Casitas.

They’ve clearly struck a message that resonates with consumers as Paolo Tiramani, Boxabl CEO, quite simply states: “The Boxabl mission is to significantly lower the cost of homeownership for everyone. Obsessively designed to the highest standards of quality, strength, and sustainability to last for generations.”

It recently moved into its 170,000-square-foot factory in June with the objective of building one every 90 minutes; that equates to 3,600 units a year.

Adding further momentum to their order book, Boxabl already has a US$10 million government contract for military housing.

The Casitas can be folded down from 6.10 metres to 2.6 metres while being transported on a truck or towed by a big 4WD. Finishes, such as the kitchen, bathroom, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC – are completed in the factory before it’s shipped out.
