American society has long been accustomed to large houses that take months to build and whose price tags require 30-year mortgages. However, the launch of the 375 ft.2 Casita by Boxabl is evidence of a growing interest in affordable, sustainable living in tiny homes. The company’s house that is delivered to customers and unpacked in just an hour is generating a lot of attention, including from Elon Musk, the purchaser of one of its prototypes. Now, as the waitlist for the Casita surpasses over 110,000 customers, Galiano Tiramani and Paolo Tiramani, Boxabl’s Co-Founders, discuss their little house that is proving that sometimes, less really is more.

“The Casita is the culmination of the desire of our engineers to solve three key problems,” says Galiano. “First, how to bring down housing prices, which are far too expensive for millions of would-be homeowners to afford. Second, how to lessen the environmental impact we all have on this planet. And third, how to help people impacted by natural disasters to be rehoused quickly in homes that are safe and sustainable.”

To impact these issues, the two men put their heads together back in 2017 and analyzed America’s mammoth housing industry. “What we could see was that while the people who were building homes were enormously talented, the industry itself was outdated,” Paolo recalls. “Its business model relied upon workers who labored for months in the hot sun and rain. We decided to flip that model on its head and produce a house in only a minute in factories.”

Intrigued by the idea, Paolo and Galiano studied America’s automobile production lines for clues into how a house could be assembled in less than 60 seconds. What they realized was that by carefully choreographing the assembly of every wall, door, and ceiling – everything down to the placement of a microwave – they could put together small, comfortable homes in factories, eliminating much of the overhead and labor historically required for construction.

“We envisioned a building system that would be similar to Legos, with the homeowner being able to stack and connect different configurations,” says Galiano. “This would give them the ability to customize its design.”

Not surprisingly, the two men faced skeptics as they pushed ahead with their vision. While the tiny home space was growing, factory-made houses were a new idea, one that took time to catch on.

“The early days of Boxabl were a little tough, but that changed as we began designing the Casita and showing everyone that our vision was not only possible but the future of sustainable living,” Paolo states. “When we completed our prototypes and ultimately launched the Casita, that’s when our waitlist grew to include tens of thousands of people who are excited about living more sustainably, affordably, and simply.”

The two men obsessed over each detail of the Casita’s design. With a full-size kitchen, bathroom, and living space, the house is designed to maximize every foot of space. Appliances include a fridge, a sink next to a window, an oven, cupboards, a deep shower/tub, a vessel sink, a sliding glass door, and more.

“We also put a lot of thought into what the Casita would be made of because we wanted it to be suitable for all types of weather,” Galiano states. “We settled on steel, concrete, and EPS foam because none of them biodegrade. We wanted owners to be reassured that ‘small and affordable’ doesn’t mean ‘cheap,’ so we put structurally laminated panels into the walls, floor, and roof. This makes the Casita stronger than your average building.”

The Casita was engineered to be fire resistant and is rated for snow loads and hurricane-speed winds. Its construction also means that it is less likely to be damaged by floods or mold.

“This attention to detail and quality is behind the interest the Casita has been receiving,” Paolo confirms. “Now that we have proven that good homes can be made in factories, we are leading a global construction industry that is worth well-over $13T. Where do Boxabl and the Casita go from here? There are so many ways our little house can improve the lives of people around the world. We can’t wait to see the impact Boxabl and our future designs will have on our planet and future generations.”
