The first ever commercial 3D printed house has been listed for sale in the United States, and thanks to the 3D printing technology, the housing crisis could be a thing of the past since printed houses cost a fraction of traditional constructions.
“At $299,999, this home is priced 50% below the cost of comparable newly-constructed homes in Riverhead, New York, and represents a major step towards addressing the affordable housing crisis plaguing Long Island,” says Stephen King, the agent that has the listing.
Printed on-site using the Autonomous Robotic Construction System by SQ4D, the 3-bedroom and 2-full-bathroom house is made of eco-friendly concrete, from the footings and the foundations to the interior and exterior walls. The company will offer a 50-year limited warranty with each of its printed structure. Building plans are being reviewed from New York to California.
