Boxabl joins an increasingly competitive sector of technologically driven businesses whose goal is to reduce the cost of construction. Despite the fact that other firms in this field have concentrated on 3D printing and other automated construction technologies, the fundamental problem for Boxabl was figuring out how to distribute its houses as quickly and conveniently as possible. This is one of the key aspects that contributed to the design’s distinct foldable feature.
The Casita is the company’s first product, a 20-by-20-foot home with a starting price of $49,500. Eventually, the company hopes to offer a number of sizes and shapes that can be stacked and assembled in a variety of ways, similar to a Lego-style house with a variety of sizes and types.
The federal government was the first to purchase these stackable homes, and Boxabl has kept a waiting list for interested parties since then.
However, there are speculations that Boxabl may have a high-profile early customer in the person of Elon Musk. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and a space entrepreneur, recently tweeted about being able to rent a cheaper apartment through his SpaceX company.
“My primary dwelling is a $500,000 house in Boca Chica / Starbase that I rent from SpaceX,” Musk says. Boxabl’s YouTube videos have hinted at a secret client based in Boca Chica, lending some credence to this notion.
Boxabl is an apt term for this breakthrough method of distributing factory-built houses.
Boxabl constructed a tiny home and two larger ones for a recent display in Las Vegas. The company is increasing production capacity in anticipation of exporting the homes later in 2020. Casita is a small house in a box that may be customized with wheels and transported behind a pickup truck. Flat bed trailers and cranes are necessary for the delivery and installation of heavy equipment.
Affordable Tiny Homes
According to Galiano Tiramani, Boxabl’s business development officer, the 375-square-foot Casita is estimated to cost approximately US$60,000.
The Boxabl technique can be used to build larger, multi-story houses and other structures. The concept would be great for providing emergency shelter in the aftermath of natural disasters.
