Photos & video: A 3D printed House completed in 24 hours

A startup company Apis Cor based in San Francisco have built a small house in a Russian town within 24 hours. The house isn't quite big and it would be a good choice for people that likes tiny homes.

The materials that makes up the building was 3D printed, starting from the concrete walls, partitions to building envelope. The manual work that was done on the building was painting, installation of roofing materials, wiring, hydro-acoustic and thermal insulation, but that didn't take much time to accomplish.

The house is around 400-square-foot which is as big as a standard hotel room. According to the company Apis Cor, the house costs about $10,134 to make, including the door and windows consuming the largest part of the budget. That sounds about right for a tiny home, though that probably doesn't account for the cost of land.
From the picture above, it shows that some house appliances are already in place. This has also shown that size is not a barrier to this company, what an owner requires is what he gets. The size may be bigger and room arrangement different as determined by an owner.
