The world of 3D printing turns to solving a worldwide housing crisis in an affordable (and stylish!) way.

3D printed homes are the way of the future! You might live in an apartment, a single-family home, a tiny house, or a luxury beach mansion; regardless of where you live, you have a home while so many others do not. But all of that is changing with the world of 3D printed homes.

Architects and scientists have found a way to make small, durable, and, most importantly, affordable homes that can meet housing code. These homes allow families that could not afford their own home to put a roof over their heads and have a space that is all their own.

The first, up-to-code home is already built and stands in Austin, Texas. Sure, it’s small, but I think we can all agree that’s a very nice looking house!
