While constriction of buildings using 3D printed technology is still considered to be in its infancy, experts suggest that the novel technology is low-cost and helps to overcome the downsides of traditional construction and assist in creating more comfortable and durable homes in lesser time. However, if you have not yet experienced living in one, you can experience this first 3D printed concrete tiny home in Canada listed on Airbnb. A report by SURFACES REPORTER (SR)
The house is said to be the first 3D printed structure in the world that has been listed on a lodging platform. Named Fibonacci House, it is designed by Ian Comishin, the president of Twente Additive Manufacturing. According to him, 3D printing allows builders to create intricate, curved walls for the same cost as a straight wall.

The walls of the Fibonacci House were printed off-site in 11 days, then brought to the build location for workers to assemble.
Inspired By the Fibonacci Sequence
This tiny house, nestled in Procter, is designed keeping in mind the well-known Fibonacci series. The house is enveloped by verdant tall trees and vegetation while having a hilly backdrop. The pictures shared on the Airbnb site showcase a river- pristine Kootenay Lake- within walking distance.

Dine Under the Porch Area
Outdoor dining areas are undeniably dreamy, and this house offers you that. One can enjoy delicacies in the inviting dining space under the porch area. Apart from having breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can also sit there to read a book or enjoy the panoramic views.
The guests can cook lovely foods in the exquisite kitchen provided by the property. Further, you can use on-street parking, and WiFi is also available to those who work from home if you plan to stay here for a long time. This house will cost around Rs 9030 for a night's stay.
Now a non-profit organization is collaborating with Twente Additive Manufacturing on an ambitious project. Christened Sakura Place, it will be a community of five 3D-printed homes in Nelson, B.C., to help single mothers or families who need housing. Each house will be 700 square feet with two bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom.
