You read it right, a home in a box!
I am uncertain how I came across this particular company Boxabl, but I was intrigued. Imagine a small home you can buy for a sum, have it delivered, unboxed, and erected within a day. This offering from Boxabl, known as the Caseta (pictured), promises all of this and a little more.
My first thought when seeing what this company had to offer was, “hmmm, another Tiny Home Company.” Then my imagination began to wander, and I started to see other possibilities, such as an in-law suite. How about an actual Home/Office on the same site as the factory you work at? Maybe this is a little too much of bringing work and home together!
What features can you pack into a house about 400 square feet? Starting with a zero-carbon footprint and a ceiling height of 9 1/2 feet, the list goes on.
They advertise a full-Size Kitchen, a fully equipped bathroom (a Deep shower/tub is included) and an ample living area which consists of a separate bedroom (Queen bed) and a living room.
Expect a washer/dryer
Heating & Air Conditioning
Small Electric Fireplace
Composite flooring throughout
LED lighting throughout
8' Doors and Windows
Expect to see a starting price of $49,500 (subject to change). Everything is built within a factory, so you can imagine the size of the factory needed to build homes like this in mass quantity. The house is ordered, it is loaded on a trailer and transported to the site. Don’t forget to set up the site foundation and have water, gas and electric hook-up ready to go.
Tiny homes are all the rage right now, so a company like Boxabl fits that current demand. For those consumers looking for something larger, Boxabl is promoting buying additional packages and adding to your Boxabl home. I expect a backlog of customers on their current waiting list, so if you are in quick need you most certainly are out of luck! I for one, will stick with my current home but it doesn’t hurt to imagine the possibilities!
