About The Folding Casita

 

HOUSE-IN-A-BOX Packed for shipping, Boxabl’s folding Casita model measures 8 ½ feet wide by 13 feet high by 20 feet long. Once unhitched from a standard pickup truck, it should take about 30 minutes to unfold into a 270-square-foot unit, which will be adjoined to another of the same size to form a complete home structure. A prototype made a splash at 2019’s Show Village, with more than 200 builders putting their names on Boxabl’s waiting list. “We’re now setting up for low-volume production,” says Galiano Tiramani, director of business development, “at a manufacturing facility in Las Vegas.” The product is currently undergoing third-party testing to determine how many units can be safely stacked atop one another. If all goes well, that would open the door to the multifamily market, further fulfilling Boxabl’s goal of producing high-quality homes at affordable prices.
