3D Printing Affordable Housing to Replace “Sticks & Bricks” Construction

Nov 30, 2018 Comments Off on 3D Printing Affordable Housing to Replace “Sticks & Bricks” Construction by

For thousands of years, we have built houses the same way using sticks, bricks, stones, mud, and thatch. Ask yourself why? Is it because these materials are structurally superior? No way! It’s because they are readily available, easier to work with, and easier to put together. That doesn’t mean they are better, nor will they last longer or that they will take less maintenance. They definitely won’t last as long as the newer geopolymer concrete.

Someone asked me to describe my life in 6 words or phrases, so here goes... Heaven sent, Husband, Home Builder, Entrepreneur, Energetic, Ever Hopeful I want to make a difference in people's lives. Affordable housing should be built to withstand disasters like fire, flooding, hurricane force winds, earthquakes and last for centuries. My goal is to teach builders to adopt new 3D printing technology, build with new and better materials such as GeoPolymer concretea and basalt rebar, and offer affordable housing all around the world.
