Prefab Builder Nestron Unveils Sleek New Stand-Alone Model
The small houses are getting bigger.
Nestron, a prefabricated house builder based in Singapore, has unveiled Cube Two X, its latest, most expensive and largest model, Insider reported. It is 377 square feet and starts at $ 98,000.
Cubex Two X costs about double the price of its predecessor Cube Two, which measures around 280 square feet, although Nestron makes high-end 360 square foot models as part of its Legend series.
The new model is roughly the same size as units made by rival Boxabl, which got a lot of press this year when SpaceX founder Elon Musk started living “mostly” in one of his units. prefabricated at a SpaceX property in Boca Chica, Texas. Both companies say their homes can be delivered and installed within a day.
The Cube Two X is available in a one-chamber and two-chamber configuration. They each include a living room, kitchen, dining room and bathroom. There is also a sofa bed in each.
The sleek futuristic design has large windows in the bedroom and living room. The furniture is made of compressed wood and stainless steel.
The bedroom kitchen is designed to accommodate a double door refrigerator and washing machine. Customers can also add solar power systems and composting toilets.
The company said 70 percent of its customers are in the United States and that it plans to launch its own distribution operation in the country. For now, Nestron says it can deliver homes within 30 to 45 days.
In the United States, prefabricated construction methods have generally been used more for modular projects – larger developments such as apartment buildings assembled from individual prefabricated units.
Modular builder Plant Prefab recently scored $ 30 million in a Series B funding round to expand its multi-family and single-family operations. Warren Buffet is also entering the prefab sector.
