A stunning 3D-printed home is currently available for sale on Zillow at 34 Millbrook Ln, Riverhead, New York.
At $300,000, it costs 50% less than comparably sized houses in the area, and the manufacturer, SQ4D, hopes to use it as a jumping-off point to tackle housing shortages in the city and surrounding towns.
Using its Autonomous Robotic Construction technology, the 3D-printed home will be erected on the spot so that it features approximately 1,500 square feet of living space, with a detached 2-car garage—all on a quarter-acre with a garden.
Inside the structure, the open-floor plan includes 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The 3D-printed material is actually made of concrete, and therefore has much better energy efficiency and durability. SQ4D also offers a 50-year limited warranty on the house.
SQ4D is one of a number of construction firms armed with humungous 3D printers, looking to direct the revolutionary technology towards the inefficiencies and high costs of the housing industry.
Requiring merely three laborers on-site to oversee the job, SQ4D can print a concrete building (without a roof) in one-third of the normal time frame required for such work.
