$50K for a foldable tiny house? The Boxabl dream explained

Home
Speaker 1: Could the future of housing be foldable, stackable factory produced homes that come off the assembly line in just 90 minutes. The folks at Boxville believe that it is they're opening a factory in Nevada to start mass producing tiny homes. And they've already set one up in Boca, Chica, Texas. That's rumored to be inhabited by a certain self proclaimed to heck no king let's get into it Speaker 2: At Boxville. We are trying to change the way houses [00:00:30] are built and move building construction into the factory where it can be more affordable, more high quality and more efficient Speaker 1: Boxville isn't alone in its mission to bring down costs. There's several startups out there trying to leverage new technologies to create new, more efficient ways to build Speaker 2: Our initial innovation was to solve the shipping problem. Existing factory built housing, generally ship the a wide load that's very expensive and, and cumbersome. We figured out how to ship [00:01:00] a 20 foot wide room on an eight foot shippable footprint that is fully finished in the factory kitchen, bathroom, electric, everything, and just takes a few hours to set up on site. Speaker 1: The added convenience in shipping is made possible by box Ables, folding design. Speaker 2: The actual setup of the unit itself is very fast. Uh, you know, we've done it here in, in, under, under an hour, really just unfolds and bolts down and you're good to go. We're starting out with the 20 by 20 size room module, but hopefully in the future, [00:01:30] we'll move on to larger sizes 20 by 30 20 by 40 20 by 60. Right now, our room modules can stack. We've done it. Uh, a couple times. You can really get just an incredible, uh, amount of, of, of configure. Speaker 1: Boxville also aims to streamline each unit's build time by moving construction into their new factory. In Las Vegas, Speaker 2: We are setting up a brand new factory right now, hope to be moving in there in the next few weeks and getting started on production. That factory should produce one [00:02:00] house every 90 minutes, hopefully about 3,600 per year. Those are our estimates right now. We were very happy to receive actually, uh, two orders to provide, uh, military base housing. So I really expect that different branches of the governments, you know, local, uh, states, FEMA are all gonna be very interested in this product and we hope that they'll be a, a very big customer of ours. We're planning to go out with the Cita at $50,000. So that's a, a 20 foot by 20 foot road module [00:02:30] with a kitchen bathroom, everything else ready to go. And then, uh, I think by the time, you know, the next year rolls around, we'll have a few different versions that we'll go out with at, at different price points. Speaker 1: There's also some rumors going around that Elon Musk is in inhabiting one of box bowls. CITAs out in Boca, Chica, Texas. The space mogul tweeted that his primary house is a $50,000 tiny home in Boca. Chica rented from SpaceX and box revealed in one of their YouTube videos that they have a top secret client [00:03:00] in Boca, Chica Speaker 3: All super organized, including drawers with rockets and spaceships. Speaker 1: Unsurprisingly Galiano told me that he could not offer a comment on these rumors as always. Thanks so much for watching I'm your host, Jesse, or see you next time with the fam.
