Elon Musk says he lives in a “very small” 3-bedroom house worth $45,000 in Boca Chica, South Texas.
Musk previously tweeted in November that he was living in a house in South Texas and that small houses felt more “homey.”
On Friday’s episode The complete mission podcast, Musk offered more details. He said that although he does not have a “main residence”, he lives in the 800-900 square meter house.
“My friends come and stay and they can’t believe I live in this house,” she said.
The billionaire told podcast host Kyle Forgeard that the South Texas home was “technically a three-bedroom, but it was a two-bedroom” until he converted the garage.
Musk said it was a half-mile from SpaceX’s rocket factory in South Texas, which he can walk to.
Musk’s representatives did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment made outside normal business hours.
Musk said on the podcast that his home “actually costs less than a Boxabl,” referring to the tiny prefab homes built by a Las Vegas company.
In November tweet, Musk said he’s been living in “a ~$50,000 house in south Texas for the past 2 years,” but that it wasn’t Boxabl.
Musk has been steadily unloading a real estate portfolio worth millions, as Insider’s Avery Hartman reported in November. It follows a commitment he made in 2020 to sell the vast majority of his holdings.
During Friday’s podcast appearance, Musk also talked about his sleep habits. He said he usually goes to bed around 3am. and wakes up after about six hours at 9 am. or at 9:30 a.m.
