Photos of the first 3D printed house in Canada will make you want to stay there. Find it on Airbnb
Although 3D printing technology is still in its infancy, it has piqued people’s curiosity, making them more open to exploring it as an inexpensive method of building comfortable and durable homes. Experts say this technology can even help overcome the pitfalls of conventional construction. But even if you are not sure if you will experience one, now you can experience it if you are in Procter, BC Canada. The country’s very first 3D printed concrete mini-house, “Fibonacci House,” has been listed on Airbnb. It is also the first 3D printed house in the world to be listed on the hosting platform.
The house was designed with the famous Fibonacci sequence in mind. Located in Procter, nestled among tall trees and lush greenery, the house also has mountains in the background. In one of the images, a river could also be seen from a distance. The description on Airbnb reveals that this is the pristine Kootenay Lake, within walking distance for anyone using the house.
Inside the house, on the mezzanine, at least four people can sleep, according to a Note on Airbnb. The house has two bedrooms, a bed and a bathroom. Outside the house, on the porch, there are tables and chairs. Besides having your breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can also just sit back, read a book or just enjoy the beauty of the landscapes. On the property you also have a kitchen, which looks exquisite in the photographs, street parking and Wi-Fi, which can be used even for working from home if you plan to stay there longer.
In addition, the money earned from bookings for this 3D house will be used by World Housing, a non-profit organization, to build affordable housing for those in need. According to a report On SingularityHub, a science and technology website, there are plans to create a community of five 3D printed homes, called Sakura Place, where preference will be given to single mothers in need of housing.
The house charges $ 129 (approx Rs. 9,030) for one night.
