- $50k for 375 sf  - really good at $134/sf. Compare to OSE 1000 sf+carport for $50k. We need marketing like this: 
- $160k, 256 sf - . Affiliate program like this - . Video says the part that they have costs builders about $60/sf, Boxabl cost is $21 at the factory. . They solved the shipping problem by making unfoldable modules at 8.5' wide. Does not include foundation, utility hookups, land, transportation (2-4 dollars/mile from facility) or installation. Which means at least another $20k there. They say $5k-$50k. If it is that much - then starter module would be say $70k. Or $186k equivalent. Stated financing cost doubling when install is included implies that the real cost is $100k for the house, but that would imply that land may be included. Seed faq

It would be interesting to engage the other projects in a collaborative process:
- Open Source balers for bale panels. How to process the straw to make it long-lasting? Is this a solved issue or an issue that creates limited applicability only to dry areas?
- 3D printed Wikihouse panels with 0 waste - engage Alastair on this, see if they are interested in polyethylene, polypropylene, or PVC.
