Habitat for Humanity Builds 3D Printed Home

Williamsburg, VA (WDEF) – A Virginia family received a special Christmas gift this year. Habitat For Humanity built them a new 3D printed home.

The 12-hundred-square-foot concrete house was built in just 12 hours. It has three bedrooms and two full baths.

Habitat For Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg partnered with 3D printing company Alquist earlier this year for the project. They say the house’s concrete can withstand natural disasters, like tornadoes and hurricane.

April Stringfiled moved in with her 13-year-old son just in time for the holidays. She also received a personal 3D printer… So she can reprint anything she might need, like an electrical outlet or cabinet knobs.
