A possible solution to the affordable housing crisis

(Disclosure: Rose Law Group represents Habitat for Humanity.)

Homebuyers facing skyrocketing prices are looking for alternatives to traditional homebuilding that are both sustainable and more affordable. Tactics in the recent past have included reusing shipping containers or downsizing altogether and moving into a van or tiny home.

But an alternative is edging into the homebuilding environment: 3D printing, as contractors see potential for 3D printing as a solution to supply chain issues and affordable housing.

Here’s how it works: A factory houses giant printers that use a special concrete mixture. The machines layer the materials on top of each other to create walls and ceilings. The components are then shipped to the site where the house is assembled with its amenities and hook-ups, with minimal waste – all for nearly half the cost of traditional home construction.
