The Building Future: 3D Printed House For Sale In New York
The 3D printed masks, hands, sculptures have become increasingly popular in the last decade.
In the new advancement, a company has claimed to list the first-ever 3D printed house for sale in the United States. The house is listed online for sale through the Zillow platform in Riverhead New York, with an asking price of $299,999.
The director of the company (SQ4D Inc), Kirk Anderson said,” This is the future, there is no doubt about it”. As stated by CNN.
SQ4D is reportedly using automated building methods and 3D printing, to build the structures and homes.
Andersen further said, “What we want to do is print homes fast, and cheap and strong.”
The company has the ability to set up its autonomous Robotic Construction System at any building site within six to eight hours. Next, it lays the foundation using concrete in layers and then proceeds to the walls and interior of the building.
CNN states that Andersen said, "It's a radical change for job sites.”
The 3D printed houses could also have an essential impact on the pockets of the potential residential buyers in America.
The Zillow premier agent who made the listing of the 3D houses possible, Stephen King said that "The cost of construction is 50% cheaper than the cost of comparable newly-constructed homes in Riverhead, New York, and 10 times faster.” Stated CNN while reporting the future of housing.
The listed 3D printed house will offer 1,407 square feet of living space and will be made out of concrete. The house will include three bedrooms, two baths, a living area, and a detached car garage enough to hold two cars.
Further stating Andersen’s views CNN writes that Andersen said, "I want people to not be afraid of automation...it is just a different tool and different method. But it's still the same product; we are still building a house at the end of the day.”
The house at Riverhead, New York is the first 3D printed house to get the certification of occupancy in the United States. The successful certification in one of the hardest places shows that the company can achieve permission for the sale of 3D printed houses anywhere.
