A standard solar panel is 39" a.


Don't care, that building is not 30' long.
That's a queen size bed. They're 5' wide.
Study the pic, do you really thin you
can fit 6 queen size beds in that space?
No way. 4 maybe 4 1/2 tops.


If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

4 meters = 13.1'

No way you're going to fit six queen
size beds in there. Not even five.

Some people use composting toilets in RVs and some actually use cat litter.

3D printing, now preferably called Additive Manufacturing, is by no way limited to one substance, most high end machines have one nozzle that can spew a variety of platics, resins, etc.

Small on-site printed homes will make rural real estate more usable. No heavy trucks required to gain access to the site, no miles and miles of power lines for which an arm and a leg must be paid. Many of these devices are designed to be 'shipping containers' that can be trucked and that can be closed up tight so the home may be used as a weekend retreat wherein there are large glass picture windows for scenery but a vandals proof panel when the home is not occupied.

Not quite getting the savings. Still need to clear the area and ship up the machine plus whatever you are using to print.

Why do you believe that is a queen sized bed? Including the overhang of the roof I would say 29 feet.

Let us assume that this company has the market cornered for people that need a home that can be delivered in one day.

Most people don't have to move quite that fast.
I am curious what it would take to outfit a regular manufactured home with autonomous capability.



Even someone who is living on the cheap, probably wants one room where he can work or watch TV separate from the bedroom.

Those shipping containers may need to be trucked to a site (or else find a helicopter pilot with an external load desgination) but the 3d printing can be done with something about the size of a brush chipper or cement mixer. You use a small printer to print a bigger printer and so on... then you print the house itself.

I see, but the material still needs to be trucked in and perhaps the lot leveled.

OMG, I laughed so hard when I read this!
