Habitat for Humanity Builds 3D-Printed House in Williamsburg, Virginia

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Wed, Dec 29, 2021 @ 10:12 AM

habitat-3D-house-pics-12202021-23-2048x1446A 1,200 square-foot, three-bedroom house in Williamsburg became the first completed Habitat 3D printed house in the nation.

With lumber prices soaring due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg partnered with Alquist for this innovative project that will help reduce the cost to build homes by 15% per square foot as compared to conventional methods.  The printing technology meant it took just 12 hours to build a 1,200-square-foot home. The house even comes with a computer file to print replacement knobs and light-switch covers. 

Concrete confers additional long-term savings because it better retains temperature, saving on heating and cooling costs, and is resistant to tornado and hurricane damage.

Construction of each home built by Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg is a cooperative effort between volunteers, house sponsors, and the buyers of the home. Participating families provide at least 300 hours of work toward building their own and other families’ homes, called sweat equity.
