70-year-old Tim Shea couldn’t be more delighted to be living in a beautiful 3D printed house after spending many years living in an RV…

The 37 square-metre home is located on the outskirts of Austin in Texas on a site called Community First Village which provides houses for the homeless; it forms part of a project by ICON to develop 3D printed homes.

According to the New York Post, Shea is among a growing number of elderly Americans who have struggled with affordable housing. Before his 3D home, he lived in the community in an RV.

Tim, who fought off a heroin addiction, says he finally feels safe in his 3D-printed home.

“What I love most about living in my 3D-printed house is its a sense of security, it’s a sense that I’ve settled somewhere.”

He says with all the corners rounded, he feels truly embraced in his new home.

The 3D printing innovation is setting the tone for a new kind of home construction.

“We want to change the way we build, own, and how we live in a community together,” says Kansas 3Strands Gary O’Dell, Co-founder, and CEO. “This project represents a big step forward, pushing the boundaries of new technologies, such as 3D-printed homes.”

This innovative way of constructing homes may raise some eyebrows but O-Dell says it’s durable and cost-effective.

These innovative homes will be a game-changer in the future.
