New York's first 3D printed house is up for sale
(NEW YORK) The first three-dimensional printed home in New York is up for sale.
Located in Riverhead, the home is by SQ4D Inc., a comany that uses automated building methods, or 3D printing, to build homes. It is currently listed through Zillow for $299,999.
"This is the future, there is no doubt about it," said Kirk Andersen, director of operations at SQ4D per CNN.
Anderson added, "What we want to do is print homes fast, and cheap and strong."
According to CNN, SQ4D can set up its Autonomous Robotic Construction System at a build site in six to eight hours, which then lays concrete layer by layer, creating footing, the foundation of a house and the interior and exterior walls of the structure.
"The cost of construction is 50% cheaper than the cost of comparable newly-constructed homes in Riverhead, New York, and 10 times faster," said Stephen King, the Zillow agent who has the house listing per CNN.
The 3D printed house includes 1,407 square feet of living space built with concrete, three bedrooms, two baths and a 2.5-car detached garage.
