You can come with us, too.
Because when we take care of each other, we thrive.
We believe that we have an opportunity in time. A few decades during which great changes will come. We want to drive some of that change, and not just with a really cool machine, but in every way you can imagine.
If you’ve been waiting for a project like this, please get in touch, regardless of your skill set or experience. We aim to include anyone who can imagine a place for themselves in this endeavor.
Phase 1: Research
In addition to the varied and bright skills of various team members, the following supporting research has been compiled and considered, specifically to form a specialized knowledge-base for our emerging industry:
- Principles of sustainable housing
- Feasibility study of affordable, sustainable, code-compliant home in Quebec, metal frame
- Principles of passive solar design and net zero-energy
- Principles of rapid prototyping / 3D printing technologies
- Principles of software structures for our business model
- Principles of horizontal business management
- Principles and local practices in consensus building
- Elaboration of a diversity program
Phase 2: Foundation
We are meeting with investors and various partner organizations in order to begin development. We are also advancing our designs, setting up our infrastructure, and fostering a development community.
Phase 3: Development
With financing secured, we will purchase the machine and its components, equipment, materials, and establish our workshop. Over the course of 18 months we will be modifying the machine to extrude insulated structures from local eco-materials, and produce a prototype chalet, co-owned by team members and partners.
Phase 4: Operations
In partnership with our manufacturing team, we will have house printer kits for sale from 2018. Future iterations will add components, materials, and processes. We will also establish a charitable Foundation to spread the technology and promote its innovation.
Code-compliant houses and other insulated structures will be available from 2018. When our homes and organization have reached maturity, we will work with our partners to design specialized buildings for a variety of circumstances as well as to create affordable, sustainable, beautiful neighborhoods.
These technologies exist, and they are available to us. At Print our Home, we’ve chosen to leverage them to support development that does good for people. Truly, you are warmly invited to join in the fun.
