This 3D printed house can be transported to its final location where windows and doors are added and internal decorations and engineering systems are installed.

You may remember our story about a 3D printed bridge and even about human organs being produced on a 3D printer.  Now a company in the US are using the technology to build houses.

A robot can produce the shell of this 3D printed house in just eight hours.

The roof, walls and base are printed simultaneously and constructed by manufacturer PassivDom at its US factory, with the company preparing to ship next month.

The 3D printed house can be transported to its final location where windows and doors are added and internal decorations and engineering systems are installed.

The home comes with an inbuilt electric supply thanks to roof-mounted solar powers and batteries meaning it is fully autonomous and enabled for off-the-grid living. It does not need to be connected to the mains.

The 3D printed house also comes with a 211-gallon water storage and filters for using any water, such as that from a river or lake, safely.

The studio home – where the sofa folds out to become a bed – starts from $64,000 (£48,000) according to the firm’s website. The price does not include US taxes and delivery costs.

The space includes the living room studio, a kitchen, and one bathroom.

The kitchen includes a microwave oven, fridge, dishwasher and coffee machine. The bathroom houses a combination washer/dryer as well as a toilet, sink and shower.

A larger property which comes with a separate bedroom is available for $97,000 (about £73,000). It is also printed by the robotic technology and finished on site.

A statement on the company’s website explains: “We manufacture PassivDom at our production facilities in Nevada. You buy completely ready solution – like goods in (a) store. It takes one day for house delivery to the necessary location.”

Whichever size of 3D printed house buyers opt for, the little home packs a punch with its green credentials. It has the best “thermal characteristics and is the warmest residential building in the world” according to the Guinness Book Of Records.

The home is made from carbon, and PassivDom says that with no corrosive materials the module’s life cycle is more than 40 years.

PassivDom initially started in Ukraine but is now also based in the US.

It says that as their 3D printed house needs no foundations it can be easily moved and relocated, should the owner wish.

  1. That is incredible. Imagine what this could do for society. If people were happy with smaller homes and living within their means this would be a great way to resolve some of the world debt.

    I doubt it will though as people want their 4 cars, 6 bathrooms and 7 bedrooms. (This is just a 2 person household of course!)
