3D Printed home made from sawmill leftovers

This 55 square metre BioHome3D house is built by people from US University of Maine & Oak Ridge National Laboratory. According to the United Nations Environment Programme, buildings account for nearly 40% of global carbon emissions. BioHome3D is printed in four modules made from wood fibers and leftovers from sawmills, making it more sustainable and recyclable. The prototype still uses some concrete as foundation, but kept to a minimum according to the designers. The idea is to make a climate -friendly solution to cope with housing shortage. The prototype is currently being tested to see how it handles weather and different temperatures. Read more:
