In a tweet, Musk said, “My primary home is literally a ~$50k house in Boca Chica / Starbase that I rent from SpaceX. It’s kinda awesome though. Only house I own is the events house in the Bay Area. If I sold it, the house would see less use, unless bought by a big family, which might happen some day.”
This house has been fabricated by a company Boxabl in a factory. This house has an inbuilt bedroom, bathroom, living room, and a kitchen. The fabricator has provided modern utilities including fridge, dishwasher, oven, microwave, built-in ironing center, etc. All the utilities are energy efficient to lower the cost of this house.
