Innovators carry civilization from one era to the next. They approach problems by thinking outside the box. Like adding wheels to luggage and inventing electric cars, Paolo Tiramani tackled affordable housing with a fresh approach that left legacy thinking and systems behind. Working in step with his son Galiano, Paolo Tiramani is producing affordable homes on a factory floor, which can be packed down to the size of a shipping container, delivered on-site and unpacked in under two hours.
In this episode of Chatter That Matters, Tiramani chats with Tony Chapman about his company Boxabl, and how it’s taking advantage of modern materials, processes, tools, equipment and software and applying them to the construction industry. He discusses his analysis of living space and the study of global highway regulations and how both informed the development of the Casita — a 375-square foot Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) that can be delivered with a full-size bathroom, kitchen, appliances and 9-and-a-half foot ceilings, for under $50,000.
A billionaire inventor with hundreds of patents to his name, Paolo Tiramani chats about what continues to motivate and drive him, the joy he gets from learning and solving new challenges and the gratitude he feels for working alongside his son.
With an abundant sense of curiosity and drive to make an impact, Paolo Tiramani is helping people realize a dream they never imagined could come true.
Tony Chapman created the Chatter That Matters podcast to counter the storm of negativity and impossibility with true stories of ordinary people who do extraordinary things. He chats with Olympians, Advocates, Celebrities, Leaders, and people who battled what seemed like insurmountable odds.
In doing, listeners hear life lessons that inspire all of us to do more and to be more, to help us get to where we need, want and deserve to go. RBC is the presenting sponsor.
