Tampa Startup Builds Area’s First 3D Home

Shamrock Road in Tampa will have a first for the area: a 3BR, 2-bath 3-D printed home listed for $599K. Robotic “hands” will layer concrete to make the walls.

TAMPA, Fla. – The Tampa startup Click, Print, Home is selling its first 3D-printed home – a three-bedroom, two-bathroom dwelling on Shamrock Road in Tampa with an asking price of $599,300.

Click, Print, Home founder Matt Gibson said construction will take around six months, or about half the time it takes to build a traditional home, once they secure a buyer.

The 3D printing process, which involves the use of robotic arms to layer concrete to create the home’s structure, is more accurate than human workers and will reduce material waste by around 95%. The 3D-printed home will also be around four times stronger than a typical concrete home.

“This is going to be so much more resistant to wind, water and termites, which is huge for Florida,” Gibson says. “This is the most efficient way to build a home. It’s just a matter of time until this is the only way.”
