America’s First Commercial 3D-Printed Housing Project Goes on Sale in Texas

America’s first 3D-printed homes-for-sale have been put on the market in Austin, Texas. They were developed by Kansas City real estate company 3Strands, designed by Logan Architecture and built using the Vulcan technology pioneered by local 3D printing specialist Icon. Jason Ballard, Icon’s chief executive, commented in a press release: “There is an extreme lack of housing that has left us with problems around supply, sustainability, resiliency, affordability and design options. “We anticipate more high-velocity progress in the years ahead to help bring housing and construction into the modern world and in line with humanity’s highest hopes.” According to the statement, the houses can be built faster than traditional homes, and are also more energy efficient, stronger and fire resistant. Buyers can choose between four two-to-four bedroom houses. Features include open floor plans, bespoke interior design, vaulted master bedrooms and an interior design palette that uses woods, metal finishes and earthy tiles. Click to read more at
