Fire, Hurricane and Earthquake Proof Homes are Here!

The sound of a concrete home sounds dreary, cold, and institutionalized, but if you notice the picture to the left, humanity has entered into a new era of architecture. These 3D printed concrete homes are only limited to your imagination. Unimaginable texture, colors and architectural designs that would have never been possible until today. All of this can be created in just a couple of days at a fraction of the cost of your typical wooden house.
This new era of architecture is a game-changer compared to a stick-build-house. And to think that these homes are also fireproof, hurricane, and termite-proof could possibly change the dictionary meaning of the phrase “wooden houses.” Wooden houses could soon be described as: “A once known primitive architecture that required massive trees to shelter humanity.”

Experts are currently working on earthquake-resistant modeling by using computer simulations that would leave “wooden houses” in a pile of rubble.

The first person to have conceived the idea of a 3D printed concrete home is speculated to be the science fiction writer Eric Frank Russell back in 1947. Looking at the feasibility of 3D architecture today is now an unstoppable reality. 3D printed architecture is far beyond a conceptual idea as several companies have already started selling homes around the world such as Mighty Buildings in Oakland, California.

The possibility of an environmentalist and an entrepreneur working together, based on the idea that a house can be built in a day without cutting down any trees, is now a reality. There are currently different types of 3D printing methods such as building sections of the house and then piecing them together, or using a huge robotic machine that towers over a house that has the ability to build the entire home in one sitting. Regular cement or composite material can mold cement into an artistic architecture that only H.G. Wells or Jules Verne could have predicted.

3D printed architects have opened up a dozen or more new industries such as 3D printed showers or 3D printed pools. Imagine the pool slide you could make. How about a 3D printed jacuzzi? Hot tub or bathtub? Colors can be added to the cement to make beautiful concrete flooring or wall designs. 3D printed designs are beyond capable of complex architecture where in the future you can go to 3dPrintedPlans.com and download a new shower or bathtub design and then send it to 3DPrintedArchitect.com and they will have it made in a day.

The world is watching to see if 3D concrete homes will be replacing conventional wood-built houses. One indicator that an industry is about to boom is when thousands of domain names are registered from around the world. When an idea turns into a profitable market, entrepreneurs, and investors quickly secure intellectual property such as domain names otherwise known as the “dot-coms.” You might laugh at this, "butt" even 3dPrintedToilets.com has been registered. It makes you think what toilets will look like ten years from now. The company Mighty Buildings just received an investment check for 35 million dollars for the development of 3D Composite Homes. When you start seeing investments like that, be ready to see in “3D,” as houses and buildings will literally pop up in your neighborhood in just a day.











Who Will Be the First Company to Advertise 3D Printed Concrete Homes For Sale?

There are millions of people following the buzz on the internet about "3D Printed Concrete Homes".

People are chomping at the bit waiting to place an order or contract a builder to have their own 3D Printed Concrete Home. We found 9 companies in the U.S currently developing 3D concrete printers for building homes. One company Aniwaa actually has a printer for sale for $480,000.00. One must wonder if they have sold any? The big question is when will we see a company actually buy a 500k printer and start advertising 3D Printed Concrete Homes for sale? 

At this moment no such company has started that race. Here at 3D Concrete Homes we are also chomping at the bit to purchase a 3D concrete printer and we are ready to start that race but because the technology is in its infancy stage, forking out a half a million is too risky because within a few months a better and faster printer will be on the market. 

 We scoured the internet and cannot find a single company who builds 3D Printed Concrete Homes for the public. We found several prototypes built and they generally hit the news but the companies who built them will not return our calls or emails on inquires. Since this is such an exciting industry they must be flooded with calls.

So what is holding up the public sales of 3D concrete homes? Building codes and safety is one factor but prototypes have proven to be safe even without steel rebar to reinforce the structure. Our evaluation is investments are starting to pour in and we are nearing breaking ground day. If you watch some of the videos on our video page you will be convinced that 3D concrete homes, pools, jacuzzi's and many creative inventions are the future and the future is near.

 

Here is a short list of 3D concrete companies.
3D CONCRETE
Balfour Beatty
Carillion PLC (PwC)
Dus Architects
Foster + Partners
HEIDELBERGCEMENT AG
Kier Group PLC
KOHN PEDERSEN FOX ASSOCIATES PC
LafargeHolcim
Sika AG
Skanska
UNIVERSE ARCHITECTURE BV
Yingchuang Building Technique (Shanghai) Co. Ltd (WinSun)

Why 3D Concrete Homes

The first person who came up with the idea that a home could be built using 3D printing probably was long before 2014. In the last 4 years, a lot of 3D printed concrete homes have been built. Some with great success and others not so great. Software and hardware is in its infancy stage but as you can see by the latest news, its time to start building homes.

The beginning of 2018, things really ramped up to the point it has turned into a gold rush based on the idea that one could build a house in a day and under $10,000.00. Major news networks are running stories and videos are going viral over 3D printed concrete homes.

The saying that Rome wasn’t built in a day just might be a thing of the past. One company claims they built ten 3D concrete homes in less than 24 hours.

What makes 3D concrete homes so appealing? After reading enough hype on the internet, we came up with the top 10 reason why this new industry is about to boom!

Here they are:

  • The green or low footprint community are thrilled at the idea that most aspects of this new 3D printed homes are environmentally friendly.
  • Humanitarian organizations are looking at building houses for millions of homeless worldwide.
  • The tiny house community or the especially simple minded are reading to take vacancy.
  • Builders can turn a project over in less than a week.
  • Caveman dwellers can throw up something in the backyard.
  • Kids castles or artistic structure can be created.
  • Home additions can be added in no time.
  • Commercial buildings can be built and they are not limited to how many stories/levels.
  • Printed spas or 3D printed pools can be artistic and elaborate and built in 3 hours.
  • Statues, walls or… the imagination is endless.
