Why Elon Musk lives in a $50k prefab tiny house? Why People are so intrigued about his house? Let’s find out!
Elon Musk is the richest man in the world, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, a smart man with a lot of wealth, so if I ask you to imagine what kind of house he might be living in, what would you say?
A massive mansion with an inbuilt swimming pool, gaming centre, movie theatre and everything you may think of, but to your heartbreak, no, there’s nothing like that, but instead the billionaire Elon Musk doesn’t even own a house.
Last year, the billionaire announced that he was “selling almost all physical possessions” in simplifying his life, maybe he sold his house too because he believes that possessions weigh him down.
But now, the question arises where does Elon Musk live?
It will be shocking for you to know that the Person of the Year 2021 lives in a 400-square-feet prefab tiny house which as defined by him “is a $50k house in Boca Chica/ Starbase that I rent from SpaceX”.
The house is not even located near a glamorous landscape but instead in a rural area that does not even look like a billionaire style.
But Why does the billionaire live in such a tiny rented house?
Maybe, Musk does not want a mansion in the Best neighbourhood but instead has the out-of-the-world plan to take neighbourhoods to another planet which is Mars. And that needs a lot of capital, but his living in a small house is not about capital but strategy.
His house is small and lightweight which does not look like a home in Manhattan but if you think deeply the house on Mars will also be different, the ones which can be erected easily and lightweight so can easily be transported, almost the most advanced houses. Yes, that thought belongs to the amazing billionaire.
Yes, the billionaire is himself testing the house for Mars. He also chose a place to live full of flatlands and also at a distance of a 40-minute drive from civilisation to feel the taste of life on Mars.
Elon Musk is a man of vision, his plans to colonize Mars and initiating such tests to accomplish his task advocates it.
Yes, he is the richest man in the world but there are various other billionaires why is Elon Musk living in a rented pre-fabricated $50k house such a big deal?
People are very intrigued about Elon Musk because he is a fun billionaire. Elon Musk is known for his amusing tweets and comments on social media handles, despite being busy he always makes time to engage with his followers which make the people attracted towards him.
One more reason for people’s anticipation is the fact that there is an unimaginable vision behind every strange thing the billionaire does. He is an out-of-the-world thinker and is going to change the world with his technological advancements. He’s living in a sample house for Mars, which is in itself a very anticipating thought. Will his followers get to live in such amazing houses? It’s absolutely exciting.
After all the amazing thoughts, let me bring to you the actual truth, Elon Musk actually does not live there, instead, he lives in a luxury mansion in Austin owned by his wealthy friend Ken Howery, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The huge mansion is an 8,000-square-foot estate owned by the co-founder of PayPal and former U.S. ambassador to Sweden, Howery who bought it for $12 million making it the most expensive property in Austin.
Why did Musk make false claims?
Maybe the eccentric billionaire lived there but the sample house failed to be liked by Musk or maybe the lack of facilities in it disappointed Musk.
The sample period of it has maybe ended and Elon Musk is yet to his huge pretty mansion. Whatever it is, we will find out soon but one thing is for sure, it will amaze us.
