A home like this can be built in less than 24 hours at a cost of only $4,000. The secret? 3D printing. And they could help families living in poverty and unsafe conditions. New Story, a housing charity organization, and ICON, a construction tech company, have partnered together. Their goal is to end global homelessness.

Alexandria Lafci: So having strong, sturdy walls, having a door that we can close at night — it's something that we take for granted. Being able to lock our door and be safe. For many of these families, for years, sometimes even a lifetime, they don't have that opportunity to have a safe shelter. So when they move into a New Story community, when they move into a safe home, families lives are transformed.

An entire community of these 3D printed homes will be constructed in El Salvador. The ultimate goal is to get costs down to $4,000 per house with a build time of fewer than 24 hours.

This prototype house was built in Austin, TX. The home measures 650 square feet. Mortar was printed layer by layer. Human workers installed windows, doors, plumbing, and electrical systems. Here's what's inside: A living room. Small office space. One bedroom. One bathroom. ICON staff will use the home as an office to test the durability.

Evan Loomis: Our first product is a 3D printer that can print a house in 24 hours for half the cost. Phase one for News Story and for ICON is a proof of concept house and the good news is we've done it. We printed the first home in the United States that's going to be permitted and for us, this is just the beginning. The real kind of home run for us is to be able to do what we've done here in Austin, Texas in the developing world and we're doing that in what we call phase two which is in El Salvador. We are going to be printing an entire village for people that don't have homes.

Not ready for mass production yet but I suggest you buy land. Land gonna run out and the people with it gonna win. The housing market gonna crash so stupidly in the future if I can get a dumb nice home for $30k... Land that was $5k gonna go for $150k. Watch! I'm just gonna wait it out or if u live in a condo unit, u may be straight but singles homes, naw bruh. I want this tech to build massive pools, not a house

Outside of major cities maybe, but America is urbanizing.

Is there any data regarding the overall cost of doing this? Items such as permits to have this built, average lot size needed to construct one of these homes on, a*sociated fees, etc. Iíd be very interested to see if this is truly a cost savings avenue as opposed to traditional mortgage route for home ownership.

fam land is not going to run out, you might want to go outside your house & travel a little bit.

states like Wyoming have only 500k people, while places like California have around 38 million.

I wonder if sometimes people even think man, people just move states if the price goes up too high and it evens things out, it's no way in hell you are going to overpopulate the US anytime even remotely soon, definitely not in 1 persons lifetime. you will never see any profit from overpopulation, just think about it.
