Prefabricated houses are becoming increasingly popular because they are so easy to build and the cost is not too high. A 3D-printed prefabricated smart home with off-grid functionality has been delivered and offers buyers the opportunity to live anywhere. The house model is a fully autonomous unit with the option to run entirely on solar energy.
Haus.me has been experimenting with fully autonomous, network-independent mobile homes since it was founded in 2016. The company has developed a patented polymer composite insulation that can be 3D printed into a building material for building walls. Combined with the company’s six paneled windows, the prefabricated units can save buyers thousands of dollars in annual energy bills.
The house does not need a power grid, propane, natural gas, firewood or other fuel. Instead, solar energy is used for heating, cooling and electricity, working in both hot and cold climates. Each model is equipped with remote-controlled intelligent systems, high-tech equipment and built-in furniture. There is also an air-to-water generator connected to a purification system, as well as a bioactive sewage system for treating black water.
The design is available in three models – the 400-square-foot single-story house, a 800-square-foot two-bedroom home; and the mFour, a 1,600-square-foot model spanning two floors with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Customers can personalize the grid-connected base model to include off-grid technologies.
