I Built a HOME In 48 Minutes!
I went to Las Vegas to build a Boxabl modular home in 48 minutes. Boxabl has made this really unique folding tiny home that easily ships and can unfold each unit in just 1 hour or less.
The Casita™ model home has many other features that set it way ahead of the competition as far as design and affordability a perfect housing option for future prefab home buyers. In this video we also ask Boxabl all your burning questions that were missing from the last interview.
Boxabl® is a new construction technology company that seeks to make upscale housing affordable to everyone. Their first product is the Casita™, a studio apartment that retails for $49,500. Boxabl buildings will be made in factory environment using new technology that allows for the rapid production of homes that are higher-quality and lower-priced than traditional alternatives.

What is a prefabricated home, and how is it different from a traditional home?
Building a home in just 48 minutes may sound like an impossible feat, but it is not so with the latest technology in prefabricated housing. With innovation and precision in the construction industry, it is now possible to build a home in record time.
Prefabricated homes, also known as modular homes, have been around for decades. However, the traditional approach was slow, costly, and often lacked desirable flexibility. However, with new advancements, building a home has become more accessible, affordable, and faster than ever before.
Building a modern prefabricated home involves engineers and designers who use cutting-edge technology and CAD software to create 2D and 3D models, which are then transformed into prefabricated modules using high tech tools, from computer-controlled saws to robotic arms. The modules include structural elements, plumbing, insulation, and electrical wiring. They are then shipped to the construction site for assembly.
Notably, the construction of a prefabricated home can take only a few weeks, with onsite assembly taking just a few hours to a few days. It’s estimated that 90% of the work is completed in the construction plant, reducing the disruptions that come with a traditional construction site. In fact, a survey carried out by the National Association of Home Builders found that building time for prefabricated homes is 25-50% less than stick-built homes.
Prefab homes do not sacrifice quality for speed. They are built to the same standards as traditional homes and come in a range of designs and styles, from contemporary to rustic. Further, many prefabricated homes are energy-efficient and eco-friendly, minimizing environmental impact and reducing energy bills.
In conclusion, building a home in 48 minutes may not yet be fully possible, but the advancements in prefabricated homes have made it possible to build a home in record time. The benefits of these homes are vast – affordability, durability, flexibility, energy efficiency, and speed of construction. Prefab homes are undoubtedly the future of the construction industry.
