Boxabl Introduces the Assembly Line to House-Building



Ever since it was introduced to the nascent automobile manufacturing industry over a century ago, the assembly line has become a hallmark of manufacturing. It is now used in the creation of countless other products and technologies and is applied to numerous industries. The reason for the assembly line’s widespread adoption is its efficiency, which lowers costs for manufacturers and consumers alike. The long-term consequence of the assembly line’s implementation across industries has been a newfound accessibility for products and technologies around the world. 

Perhaps the only major industry where the effects of the assembly line are not fully felt is the construction industry. While the pieces that comprise a house and the tools that are used to put those pieces together are the products of assembly line methods, the houses themselves are not streamlined in their production. Rather, they are built one-by-one as isolated projects. In consequence, construction remains highly expensive and home ownership is out of reach for many individuals and families. 

The construction industry has neglected to implement assembly lines or comparable streamlining systems because the task has long been considered impossible, given the size of many houses and their variability. This presumption was considered axiomatic until the technology startup Boxabl made factory-produced houses a reality and reached a point of efficiency where the company can produce one house per minute. Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s recent purchase of a $50,000 Boxabl home has alerted many to the fact that the age of mass-produced affordable housing is upon us.  

“The industry itself was outdated and due for a refresh, as too many people were being priced out of the housing market,” says Boxabl co-founder Paolo Tiramani. “We decided to change how houses are produced so that they would be more affordable. However, we didn’t reinvent the wheel – to reduce costs, we took a page from the auto industry. The assembly line allowed us the ability to mass produce a product in the shortest most cost-effective manner possible.”

Boxabl’s first and most popular model is the Casita, a studio apartment configuration that now has a waitlist over 110,000 customers long and counting. The Casita is equipped with a bathroom and kitchen and appliances. Upgrades for the Casita include modern lighting fixtures, soaking tubs and vessel sinks. At only $50,000, the Casita provides all of the essentials along with many conveniences. 

“Homes were simply too expensive for far too many people to afford,” says Boxabl co-founder Galiano Tiramani. “Yes, we were all used to that production model, but it resulted in houses that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Paolo and I foresaw a different way: we could produce homes in factories, which would dramatically lower both their labor and overhead costs.”

Although Boxabl’s homes are much cheaper than most houses on the market today, this is not indicative of lower quality and lesser durability. Boxabl products are meticulously designed to withstand the elements, constructed with non-biodegradable materials such as steel, concrete and EPS foam. The structurally laminated panels in the walls, roof and floor of Boxabl homes make them sturdier than most homes on the market today. They are even designed to handle heavy snow-load and hurricane-speed winds. On the whole, Boxabl homes are more resistant to flood, fire and mold damages.

Boxabl, a building construction technology startup with a valuation of over $3B, is the creator of the Casita, a tiny home that can be unpacked in only an hour. Resistant to bugs, water, mold, fire, and wind, it is redefining the future of sustainable living.
