Habitat for Humanity builds its first 3D-printed home in Tempe, Arizona
The custom, single-story home, currently under construction on a lot owned by the City of Tempe, combines 3D printing and traditional construction to create an innovative model for the future: a scalable, cost-effective homeownership solution to address the affordable housing crisis facing communities nationwide. Not only is it more affordable but it is energy efficient, less costly to build and can be built quicker with less waste.
The new 3D-printed home project is a single-family home with three bedrooms, and two baths. The livable space is 1,738 square feet, and the total project is 2,433 square feet. 70 – 80% of the home is 3D printed, including all internal and external walls. The remainder of the house is a traditional build.
The home is expected to be completed in September / October. The home could be occupied as early as October 2021.
