Last year, Elon Musk famously Tweeted:

This year Musk made good on his promise, selling all of his homes. And after Mashable reported that he's now living in "a prefabricated house near a SpaceX launch site in Texas," made by a company called Boxabl, I checked out their site—and accidentally stumbled across a tour of the actual house Musk is now living in.

For background, Boxabl makes $50,000 pre-fab houses--"Casitas"--that are shipped flatpack and unfolded on site. You can see how this works in the video below, which was shot in Texas in December. The company man giving the tour never says Musk's name, but wordlessly reveals who the "VIP" is by tour's end:

I can imagine one of these would be excellent if you're building a home and want to live on-site or if you want to add an ADU as an in-law suite or second income property. Could also be used to quickly reshape a piece of land in a city — imagine an demolished factory or parking lot becoming and instant neighbourhood!

I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
