Housing advocates hopeful about opportunities as Florida’s first 3D printed house is built

Tallahassee, Florida (WTXL)-A pretty cool thing is happening on Clay Street in the Griffin Heights district of Tallahassee, Florida. The house is built using 3D printing technology.

Fredrik Wannius of Printed Farms, which provides machines for 3D-printed homes, says this may be the future of residential and commercial construction.

“Weekly and monthly new improvements are being made.” Wanius said.

Machines cost between $ 500,000 and $ 750,000, and you can lay about two feet of wall per day.

And while the valuation is pending, this first home could sell between $ 175,000 and $ 200,000.

When it comes to building affordable homes across the country, it’s a step in the right direction.

“Because it’s certified as an affordable home, we’ll contact a local nonprofit organization to help families find those homes,” said Kyndra Light, who runs Precision Building and Renovating LLC with her husband. Says.

Wright says he wants this method of building a house to be 25% cheaper than traditional construction.

Goals they plan to achieve within a year or two.

“We are very confident that R & D can reach that point,” Wright said.

Spectators like Nicole Everett say they are looking forward to more projects like this in the future.

“I think it’s great,” Everett said. “I’ve been working in the affordable housing space for many years, and the idea that this could be an affordable housing solution is great.”
