He Was Homeless, Today He Is The First Man To Live In A House Built Using 3d Printing.

The world of construction and building seems about to undergo a radical transformation thanks to 3D printing. 3D printing has been around for many years, but it has entered the construction industry and the results are simply astounding. Tim Shea, a 70-year-old man with a difficult past marked by addictions and nights on the streets, is now the first person in the United States to live in a house built using this technology.

The house is located in the Community First neighborhood! The village, a community that houses shelters for the homeless and has more than 500 homes. The Icon company brought its 3D printing technology to the village in hopes of creating a community and providing a stable home for those less fortunate. Tim’s house is about 40 square meters it has a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, a living room, and a large porch.

The company’s goal, according to CEO Jason Ballard, is to create decent housing that is accessible to everyone , everywhere. The materials used for construction are considered to be more weather resistant than traditionally built houses.

Before moving into this beautiful and comfortable house, Tim lived on the streets and in a motorhome . While Tim previously felt insecure and tended to isolate himself, he couldn’t be more comfortable today. His house is more than a roof over his head, it is a place that gives him protection. There are no cramped spaces, everything is rounded and cozy, and the house is warm and welcoming: it almost seems to hug him. Tim chose an open space : he suffers from arthritis and thinks that in the future he will have to move around using a wheelchair. Man would not have imagined that with his past he could live in such a beautiful place ,

When Tim heard he would be the first person in America to move into a house built using 3D printing , he felt extremely lucky. Tim’s life has now changed dramatically: he has put his fears behind him and is ready to live in this house, which for him represents security, hope, and warmth.
