California’s 1st 3D Printed House Under Construction At Enterprise Park

The equipment has finally arrived and a local contractor is getting underway in building the first 3D printed house in California right here in Redding. Don Ajamian Construction and Emergent 3D will get a boost through a collaboration with the City of Redding. A 1200-square-foot house is being built at Enterprise Community Park. It’ll serve as an abode for a park host, who will live there full time performing limited duties and keeping an eye on things. Delivery of the 3D printer was delayed by supply chain disruptions, but with its arrival the company will get started right away. Plumbing, electrical, roofing and ceiling sheetrock will be done by conventional crews, but the walls will require a crew of only three people. After the Enterprise Park house is built, another caretakers house will be built at the Bonnyview Boat Ramp. It’s hoped that those prototypes will lead to a demand for more of the houses, which are energy efficient, fire resistant and can be built at a fraction of the price of traditional wood frame construction. Company founders Don Ajamian and Matthew Gile were inspired by the loss of thousands of homes to wildfires, including the Carr Fire. The public is invited to take a look at the construction underway at Enterprise Park Wednesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon from 3PM to 5PM.
