That’s right! He actually lived in a converted DUMPSTER for ten months (happily)!
And now, according to Kirsten Dirksen, Jeff Wilson is creating, promoting and selling the “iPhone for housing”! And I think he’s on to something!
In the video (below), Jeff says, “things have not changed in real estate since 1884,” and I couldn’t agree more!
So this is the Kasita! It’s an incredible yet very simple idea but what do you think?
Video: Tiny Prefab Home the Future of Real Estate/Housing? Maybe even the “iPhone” of housing?
- “Vertical RV Park” concept
- Buy your tiny house unit and it can later be moved and re-installed somewhere else
- 208 sq. ft. prototype that fits into a “rack” to become a sort of “high rise” RV park? Sort of..
- The design has over 5000 hours worth of engineering done mostly by BMW design engineers
- It’s actually a lot more like a car than a home
- It’s designed to be built on a line (like a vehicle) so that it can be scaled and become more affordable to build/sell/buy
- The goal is so that almost anyone can afford one, Jeff says that even a barista should be able to buy one
- The bed is able to slide right underneath the kitchen and bathroom thanks to the high ceilings
- The glass cube area consists of a high tech glass that can darken and lighten according to the day and/or what you’d like!
- It has air conditioning, hot water, a washer/dryer combo unit, closet space, bathroom, and more!
- The idea is for it to feel like a small condo that feels bigger than the 208 sq. ft. the concept model consists of (the production model is going to be 50% larger which is 320 sq. ft.)
- The goal is also to be able to transport the units easily throughout the country on a standard 18 wheeler truck
- The units are zoned as multifamily units (just like apartments, condos, etc.)
- KASITA is a product company that sells the prefab housing units along with the racks to stack them
