For the first time, a 3D-printed house is for sale in the United States, and its fabrication process makes it a considerably cheaper purchase than its neighbors.
This residential property is printed on-site using SQ4D’s Autonomous Robotic Construction System (ARCS), is the first commercial 3D-printed house slated to receive a certificate of occupancy and is listed on MLS for sale as new construction for $299,999.
At $299,999, this home is priced 50 percent below the cost of comparable newly-constructed homes in Riverhead, NY and represents a major step towards addressing the affordable housing.
The 3D-printed home will feature over 1,400 square feet of living space, plus a 750 square foot 2 ½ car garage on a ¼ acre. This home includes 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and features an open floor plan.
Built with concrete, this home will deliver strength and durability that conventional wood-frame construction cannot match. SQ4D will be including a 50-year limited warranty on their 3D printed structures.
The company reportedly has plans to build even more of these or similar houses in New York and California — suggesting a pathway for 3D printed homes to graduate from a niche oddity to a viable living situation.
