Home construction has been elevated by the use of 3D printers. The massive, more than 12-ton printer is producing what is thought to be the first two-story, 3D-printed house.

The 4,000-square-foot home in Houston is being constructed by a machine that continuously pulsates away as it extrudes layers of concrete.

According to architect Leslie Lok, co-founder of design studio Hannah and designer of the home, construction will require 330 hours of printing in total.”

“The three-bedroom house has wooden framing and is currently being sold to a family who prefers to remain anonymous, according to her.

Concrete can also withstand the hurricanes, powerful storms, and other extreme weather that Texas is experiencing more frequently and severely as a result of  climate change.
