Good News of the Month
First, 3D Printed Neighborhood is Providing 100 Sturdy Affordable Solar Homes Near Austin For $400K+
Out in Austin, a 3D-printed neighborhood is taking shape, where 100 homes are being simultaneously made to start next year for around 30% less than comparably-sized homes.
They will be built between 2 and 4 bedrooms and too much higher codes, and in addition, will include solar paneled roofs.
Lennar, one of the nation’s largest home builders will be partnering with ICON, a 3D-printing firm to create what they’ve termed The Genesis Collection. Lennar was an early investor in ICON, which they saw as having the potential to bring down construction costs significantly.
ICON’s machines are fully-automated, and each building needs the attention of just three workmen. The printing can go on 24 hours a day, and the firm says they can print the entire wall system with electrical, plumbing, and ventilation at around a third of what a normal team of builders would need.
All of this contributes to both low costs and timeframe.
