Sustainable 3D-Printed Homes: The Future of Housing

Sustainable 3D-Printed Homes: The Future of Housing

A company called Mighty Buildings, Inc. now uses 3D printing technology to build homes. They plan to build communities of sustainable, net-zero, 3D-printed houses in many places around the world, including Hawaii and Saudi Arabia. These houses are made in micro factories that can be set up quickly almost anywhere.

They use a patented material called Light Stone Material that quickly cures into a stone-like composite. This material has 4x the tensile and flexural strength of concrete while weighing 30% less and being 15% less expensive. They have built homes in California and the Caribbean. In California, they have built a development featuring 20 homes with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms that measure 1,171 square feet. These homes can be installed in 3 months with a 3-person crew using standard machinery. Mighty Buildings claims that its printed homes cost 45% less than comparable houses in the California market. For example, a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is priced at around $285,000. It’s designed to be eco-friendly and sustainable. Their homes are even powered entirely by solar energy. 

The future of 3D-printed homes primarily depends on if builders and consumers come to embrace the change and how the technology itself expands. If you want to learn more and see some of Mighty Buildings’ work, check out this article by Carolyn Schwaar at
