  1. Even though it is a 3D printed building, it appears to be regular construction. How uninteresting. I wish they would make good use of the technology, which is ideal for creating more organic shapes and patterns. I’ve seen a few instances of this, but they seem to be the exception rather than the rule.

  2. This type of building is still in its infancy in terms of technology. Hopefully, they’ll be able to improve their speed and accuracy. On it, there is a good Build Show video.

  3. What is the best way to locate a builder who uses ICF? I submitted some information on a website that concealed the architect/identity, designer’s but no one has contacted me.

  4. Earthships are still affordable on a material level; all you need is the labor to pound dirt into 1000 tyres. I’ve been considering both timberframe+sips and just concrete block, both of which are extremely durable and reduce the amount of lumber used.
