Elon Musk Lives in a $50K 400 Sq. Ft. PreFab Tiny House


CEO of Tesla Motors Elon Musk — who is reportedly the second richest man in the world — currently lives in a Boxabl Casita prefab tiny house which costs a measly $50,000 (base price)! The home sits in Starbase, Texas, where Musk and his team are building Starships.

Shockingly, the house is only 375 square feet. Boxabls can include a number of upgrades, and Musk has hinted that he spent an extra $19K on special features. Still, a $69K home for a man worth $156 Billion is fairly remarkable, especially since the only other home he owns he currently rents out for events and is trying to sell to a family. He recently sold a number of mansions he owned to make good on his promise to lower his carbon footprint.

Turns out Boxabl has it’s eyes set on outer space, which might explain their relationship with Musk. They have a video you can watch below all about using their prefab homes on Mars. Below are some pictures of a Boxabl Casita prototype.

    Since Elon only sleeps there it is oversize. Normally he sleeps on a couch in an office.
    While he is awake he is working as that is what he does for fun so doesn’t need a big house, his factories, R+D, Spaceport, etc is his home.
    Plus for tax reasons owning one in Texas saves him a lot of money in state taxes.

      Not really oversized, mind that he did spend an extra $19K on “special features”… So he’s clearly not just sleeping there, unless that’s the most luxurious and/or hi-tech couch bed in the world. Don’t think he’s that eccentric… Besides, unless it’s right in his company parking lot, he’s still going to need more than just a bed…

      Unlike his office, where he has quick access to the company restrooms, cafeteria, etc. It does need to be at least a bit more self sufficient for his needs…

    I think you’ve stumbled on the difference between Greed and and Efficiency…My studies also showed me each person only needs 200 sq ft and a couple can live well at 400 sq ft. He might have guest on occasion..My are 12′ X 24′ and not a cube for transportation and factory expediency true, but the sq ft is about the same….The difference is the 1/2 bath and utility room to bring it up to 400 sq ft. And of course the facade can have style..

    I thought he had kids. So where do his kids live?

      Out of the 7, 1 died, 5 remain in shared custody with his 1st wife and thus aren’t always with him, and the most recent one was with his present girlfriend is still a baby and thus primarily stays with the mother…

      Mind, this move is a recent change, he sold the mansions he previously owned and is trying to sell his house as he presently rents it out. So once he sells the house, he’ll likely set up new arrangements for himself then…

    This fabulous small house is at the top of my favorite tiny homes list!!! A few tweaks to personalize it and you would be set for many years of happy living! This could even solve problems like homelessness and instant disaster relief homes. Beautiful and efficient…who could ask for more?

      Exactly! I really hope these take off, especially with the notoriety from Elon Musk having one…
