First 3D printed home jumps off the page onto US soil

Built at half the cost of conventional homes, the first permitted 3D-printed house in the US, constructed by SQ4D, has hit the market in Long Island, upstate New York.

The property represents a step towards addressing the affordable housing crisis with the house listed for sale as new construction for $299,999USD. Printed on site using the company’s autonomous robotic construction system, making this a feasible and affordable option for not only residential development but also Government funded housing projects to help the most vulnerable in the community.


The 3D-printed property offers three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and an open floor plan. SQ4D has constructed the house with concrete, delivering strength and durability that exceed that of conventional wood-frame constructions while utilizing a more sustainable building process. According to the company, the property is the first 3D-printed home slated to receive a certificate of occupancy.

SQ4D is a pioneer in the construction technology industry and developed its patent-pending ARCS technology to robotically build the footings, foundations, interior and exterior walls on site of their homes. This 3D-printing technology can also drive a lasting solution to the affordable housing crisis by drastically reducing the cost of new home constructions.
