Sustainable homes

At first, when we started to hear more and more about 3D printed homes, I must admit I was a little skeptical for many reasons of how it could work. I’m sure if you’ve been into 3D printing for a while, you must have thought that too back then. Printing processes were too long and expensive, so it felt so far from being a good choice for a big product or project. Nowadays, the potential for 3D is huge and it’s clear there are lots of possibilities for it. High-scale prints are way faster and compared with other materials, they could be a much more sustainable and affordable option.

Palari Group, which is a development company dedicated to offering innovative and sustainable building strategies for the real estate market, and Mighty Buildings, a construction technology company that is innovating the construction industry by using 3D-printing and robotic automation. They have recently come up with a plan to develop the first 3D-printed zero net energy homes community located in Rancho Mirage, California. Its plan is to develop a 5-acre parcel into a community of 15 eco-friendly homes.

The first world’s planned community of 3D-printed homes will cost a total of $15 million and it revolves around the integration of technology and sustainability. The project aims to minimize its environmental impact by eliminating 99% of construction waste and utilizing solar energy and weather-resistant materials. So definitely sustainability-caring buyers will enjoy living in a smart and healthy home.

"We could not be more excited for this groundbreaking collaboration with Palari, and to be a part of the creation of the world's first 3D-printed zero net energy community," said Alexey Dubov, Co-Founder and COO of Mighty Buildings. "This will be the first on-the-ground actualization of our vision for the future of housing - able to be deployed rapidly, affordably, sustainably, and able to augment surrounding communities with a positive dynamic."

Each property will have stone wall texture for the exterior and floor-to-ceiling windows. Mid-century modern architecture will be present on the design and each will be 1,450 square feet that consists in 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a secondary residence of 700 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. Each backyard will feature a swimming pool with a deck and views of the mountains that surrounds the place. All energy will be solar supplied with the optional Tesla Powerwall batteries and EV chargers.

"We are thrilled to launch this first development of 3D printed sustainable homes and partner with Mighty buildings to realize our common vision of transforming the way we build homes of the future," said Basil Starr, Founder and CEO of Palari, "3D printing allows us to build faster, stronger and more efficiently, making it integral to our platform of streamlining home-building process centered on sustainability of construction, materials, and operations." Palari is planning to build communities of sustainable healthy smart single-family homes in suburban locations across California, introducing a new era of homebuilding. During the presale stage, prices start at $595,000 for a base 3BR/2BA model and go up to $950,000 for a two-home configuration with upgrades.

I don’t know about you, but I’m thrilled about what’s next, not only for sustainable homes and lifestyle but also for what 3D printing possibilities are.
