Last May, Elon Musk had announced that he would get rid of his luxurious properties and live a simpler lifestyle. Earlier, he had sold all his plush estates and has also listed the final large property he owns in the Bay Area in San Francisco, California. He has moved into a rented, prefabricated $50,000 home in Boca Chica, Texas, the site where SpaceX manufactures its Starships.
The house has a floor space of 31 square meters. It is called a Boxabl Casita. It is a prefabricated home that can be folded. It can easily be assembled and transported. According to the home manufacturer’s website the Boxabl Casita has a concrete and steel construction that makes it long lasting. It can be transported by a Model X.
According to Teslarati, there was mention of Musk’s new home last November. The prefabricated housing manufacturer had shared a video inside a unit that it had installed in Boca Chica, Texas. The unit had a Falcon 9 poster on the door. Boxabl had said that the unit was created for a very specific client. It has now been revealed that the client was Elon Musk himself.
Musk has said that his focus is on creating “sustainable energy” for our planet. He also wants to protect the “future of consciousness” by making life interplanetary using his company SpaceX to achieve this interplanetary goal. He is currently concentrating on missions to Mars — the Red Planet.
Elon Musk has been criticized for the roller coaster ride of the Bitcoin with his flip flop tweets. He had recently said that he would embrace crypto once it was mined with about 50 percent of clean energy. Skeptics say that it would be difficult to calculate as mining crypto currencies are energy draining operations and that the eccentric billionaire is well aware of these facts.
Musk has also been in the news when ProPublica named him along with Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffet and others who paid zero or minimal taxes. However, Musk has tweeted that he will pay income tax in California, which would be proportionate to the time he is there.
