Thanks to the 3D printing revolution, one company was able to “build” a tiny home in just 24 hours.
Apis Cor, a startup based in San Francisco, used a mobile 3D printer to construct a 400-square-foot igloo-style house complete with a bedroom, bathroom and hall in the Moscow region of Russia. The printer pumped out layers of a concrete mixture that lasts for 175 years, according to Quartz. And its flat roof can effectively withstand heavy snowfall.
The tiny house was reinforced with fiberglass and painted the painted a mustard yellow. In the future, Apis Cor said they could print these tiny houses for $10,134 — a price that includes windows, doors, electrical wiring, plumbing and other things resembling a real home.
