RIVERHEAD, NY—Construction technology company SQ4D Inc. has listed for sale the first 3D-rinted home in the United States. The residential property was printed on site using SQ4D's Autonomous Robotic Construction System (ARCS). It also is the first 3D-printed home slated to receive a certificate of occupancy and is listed on MLS for sale as new construction for $299,999.
The printed home features more than 1,400 square feet of living space, plus a 750 square foot 2.5 car garage on a 0.25 acre. This home includes 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and features an open floor plan. Built with concrete, this home will deliver strength and durability that conventional wood-frame construction cannot match. SQ4D is including a 50-year limited warranty on its 3D-printed structures.
SQ4D developed its patent-pending ARCS technology to robotically build the footings, foundations, interior and exterior walls on site of their homes. SQ4D's proprietary hardware and software enables the construction site to be safer while creating eco-friendly concrete homes compared to traditional wood-frame construction at a fraction of the cost.
SQ4D's 3D printing technology can drastically reduce the cost of new home construction. Stephen King of Realty Connect, the Zillow Premier agent who has the listing, says, "At $299,999, this home is priced 50 percent below the cost of comparable newly-constructed homes in Riverhead, NY, and represents a major step towards addressing the affordable housing crisis plaguing long island."
SQ4D also has building plans being reviewed from New York to California.
