3D-printed homes could be on their way to the Martindale-Brightwood community, thanks to local community organization Circle Up Indy’s Rising Evolution initiative to increase affordable housing in the city.
In order to obtain two 3D printers, the training + maintenance required, land purchases, and other related expenses, the organization is working to raise $2,600,000.
What to know about the 3D printed homes:
- They can be built within 24 hours.
- Options for two- to six-bedroom homes would be offered.
- The machines would cut down labor costs by 70%.
- They’re no different than man-made concrete houses, according to developers.
- The foundation, roof, floors, and plumbing would be included in the process.
- Homes would be open to those with criminal history, low income, and poor credit, with rent averaging at around $800.
