While dean at Huston-Tillotson University, Jeff Wilson spent his time living in a dumpster. Despite the small space, Jeff found big inspiration that prompted him to create the future of minimal living.
In 2015, he started Kasita; an Austin-based company that builds prefabricated homes that have the option to be stacked to create an apartment building. Each home will be sold for $139,000 and has just 352 sq ft of space but there’s already a waiting list! A fee of $1,000 gets you onto the list and the first of the homes begin shipping out to customers in June.
Each home has a kitchen, sleeping space, storage, a bathroom, and a small raised living room. Large windows on one end of the home help to make the home feel bigger than it is.
