Tesla CEO and one of the world's richest men Elon Musk currently lives in a $50K home at Starbase, Texas. His new home is located within the premises of his private space company that builds its starships.
Teslarati reported that it appears that Musk is living in a humble prefabricated housing unit. The house is allegedly only 400 square feet, and the Tesla and SpaceX CEO seems to enjoy his new settlement.
Some images surfaced on the internet, and it appears that Musk is indeed having a great time living modestly in Boca Chica.
The billionaire CEO's housing unit in Starbase is known as Boxabl Casita, a foldable, prefabricated property made for easy installation and maximum affordability.
Tesla's Elon Musk has a 20x20 unit, and Teslarati confirmed that it costs only $50,000, which is significantly less than the price of a Tesla Model Y Long Range Dual Motor AWD.
Musk made an excellent decision to choose Boxabl Casita because it is famous for being durable as it is made of steel and concrete panels, ensuring a highly durable build. The home is easy to transport and install because it is light enough to be towed -- or pulled -- by the EV company's very own Model X.

Rumors about Elon Musk's Boxabl home emerged in November 2020, back when the company posted a promotional video inside one of its units in Boca Chica, Texas.
The company initially planned to highlight the advantages of having a prefabricated home. Still, at the end of the clip, Boxabl mentioned that the specific unit was built for a particular Boca Chica client.
What gave it away was the Falcon 9 poster pasted on the unit's door.
It was, indeed, for Tesla's Elon Musk.

The Boxabl Casita is a customizable home equipped with various configurations and finishes.
However, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk seems to have opted for a standard base unit. Since then, Musk has not mentioned any improvement of his humble home.
Teslarati believes that the installations would not cost more than the Tesla Model S, which is a base model of the EV company. Indeed, the Casita is a classic representation of Elon Musk. It is different, practical, and interesting.
It is also quite surprising to think that the third-richest man in the world owns a 20x20 housing unit.
Hey @elonmusk, @_BOXABL wants to help you build Starbase. What do you think? pic.twitter.com/AV1ke0mMBn— World of Engineering (@engineers_feed) March 4, 2021

It seems like Boxabl is exceptionally fond of the Tesla's Elon Musk and his ventures. The startup showcases one of its Casita homes being pulled by a Model X vehicle to show how light and durable it is.
The company also published a video clip that shows a Casita unit being configured as a possible quarter for astronauts on Mars. If all goes well, Boxabl Casita might expand its business in space, which works well for Musk as he owns one of the biggest space agencies to date.
In other news, Boxabl also suggested that its Casita prefabricated housing units could be used to expand SpaceX's Starbase.
Musk has not confirmed anything, but it seems like there is a huge possibility for it to materialize.
It will allow the site to grow with increasing housing units with the same volatility as Tesla's electric vehicles and SpaceX's rockets.
