Habitat for Humanity is 3-d Printing Houses. The First One is in Virginia.
April Stringfield dreamed for years of owning a home with a yard large enough for her son to romp around with his puppy and play with his friends.
She just never imagined that achieving that goal would resemble watching toothpaste getting squeezed from a tube, she said.
“From start to finish, it was amazing to watch my house come up from plain, flat ground,” said Stringfield, 35. “I still can’t believe it.”
The single mom and hotel housekeeper was the recipient of Habitat for Humanity’s first 3-D-printed home in Williamsburg, Va., last month. She and her son, Azayveon Stringfield, 13, spent their first night in the three-bedroom, two-bath house on Dec. 27.
