    I saw information on 3D printing of a house 3, 4 or maybe 5 years ago. And on Tiny House Talk to boot. It was interesting at the time but, and its a big but, there was no way to easily, if ever, to enlarge the footprint of the house or add on fixtures. It was made by layering, for want of a better word, gook on top of gook.

      Same can be said of SIPs and other prefabricated methods of construction, but it’s more just hard and otherwise can be done. Like materials that use plastic can be hot knifed, plastic welded, etc… Foam can be hot knifed, channeled, and additional foam used to modify the install… Concrete can be demoed and new forms created… 3D prints can also be done in sections to scale or add complexity…

      While you don’t have to do the entire structure via the 3D print. So things like cladding can still be added on, interior finished, doors and windows can be installed, service channels or conduits can allow utilities to be routed as needed, it can all be modular to allow for modification and scaling, etc. Like a traditional structure, you can demo to modify and remodel…

      All just may require special tools, methods, and higher skill level… Along with not being as convenient as conventional construction to modify but a lot can be compensated for with proper planning. So YMMV…

      Early adopters are going to run into issues but they’ve worked out a building code for 3D printing for the IRC and as more companies get into it and produce more products it gets further developed and improved…

        What is the IRC? Only one I know of is If I Recall.

          IRC (International Residential Code), organization that produces the building codes, the 2021 update added Appendix AW for 3D Printed Building Construction…

    Nice and tight. But is a 4-burner top necessary? Better flow with a reverse swing on bath area door; move sink back to back with one in cook area and put commode by wall with another window. Fine for single person.

      Floor plan is optional, check out their “Our Process” section of their website…

    Wonder if it would be better to use SIPs like the ones manufactured by zs2technologies.com rather than 3D printing from the sustainability standpoint of materials and cost. Would love to see a cost comparison.
