There are probably very few people on Earth who would willingly live in a 375-square-foot prefab home if they had a net worth of ~$185B (and only paid a 3.27% true tax rate).
Elon Musk is one of them.
The tech titan has reportedly been residing in a cozy foldable home on the SpaceX premises in Boca Chica, Texas.
The home is built by Boxabl and goes for $49.5k
Though the home’s resident was not officially confirmed as Musk, Las Vegas-based Boxabl said it installed one of its Casita homes for a “top secret customer” last November.

Then, in June, Musk tweeted that his primary home is a “kinda awesome” ~$50k house that he rents from SpaceX in Boca Chica.
The company is gaining steam
Boxabl has a 47k-person waitlist for its tiny home that takes just hours to set up and is light enough to be towed by a Tesla.
In June, Boxabl moved into a new 170k-square-foot factory that’ll eventually have the production capacity to output 3.6k Casitas a year (it’s only built 3 so far).
