When you decide to have a home built, you’re usually in for months of waiting for it to be finished. No more! A San Francisco company built one in just 24 hours.
How? The builders used a 3-D printer to create the 400 square foot home. The home is made from a concrete mixture and is predicted to last nearly 200 years.
If that’s not unbelievable enough, the entire structure cost just $11,000!
This is the 3-D printer that the company used to make the house. It churned out parts for 24 hours that were later put together to form the home.
Apis Cor. is the company behind the home, which stands in Russia. The crew worked for only one day from start to finish.
Strangely enough, the home’s parts were printed using a concrete mixture. It looks like typical concrete here.
The home might not last forever, but it will last a couple of lifetimes. Employees of the company expect it to stand for about 175 years.
As you can see here, the inside of the home looks pretty modern. You might not know it’s a 3-D house if you weren’t told.
Despite the small size of the home, you can see that it has all the amenities. That includes a washer dryer setup.
This is what the home looks like from above. It’s not big, but it sure does make a big impact.
For the Homeless
Apis Cor. hopes to use their new technology to build homes for the homeless. This one only cost about $11,000 to build.
This is a rendition of the model used to create the home. As you can see, it has a couple of rooms for homeowners to spread out in.
This home is sure to the be inspiration for other 3-D printed homes. A brand new era has officially begun.
