To counter rising costs of everything, from lumber to concrete to homes themselves, builders have begun to adopt 3D-printing technology to reduce costs.
Kyndra Light and James Light have tapped into the world of 3D printing to bring affordable homebuilding to Floridians.
The automated printer, suspended on four posts, produces about 2 feet of concrete per day.
Printing walls out of concrete is a huge cost saver. In addition, it requires very little labor besides a small crew manning the printer.
Construction takes about 8-10 weeks for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house. It will cost around $175,000 and $200,000. The cost savings is noticeable considering the median US-existing home price surged to a record of $350,000.
It could also be a great tool to rebuild homes after a hurricane strike because the printer works quickly.
With rampant inflation everywhere, consumers said higher home prices were a reason why buying conditions have soured. Perhaps, those who are looking for affordable housing may find answers in 3D printing.
