3 unusual materials changing the way homes are builtThe List Trending
Traditionally we think of hammers, nails and wood to build homes, but Kristina Guerrero has a list of alternative new materials that are being used to create abodes including cardboard, cement and containers that are changing the construction game.
A Wikkelhouse has 24 layers of cardboard that are glued together with magic glue. They then give it a waterproof foil and finish it with wood. These pre-built homes are transported and can be delivered almost anywhere because they're very light.
There was recently this home that was 3D printed in Russia for about $10,000 and it's a fast process at about 24 hours. The home is about 409 square feet and doesn't skimp on any modern luxuries. The house interior includes a hall, a bathroom, a living room and a compact functional kitchen with the most modern appliances.
A shipping container itself, depending on the size will set you back just about $2,000, but to really indulge in an epic container you’re looking at around $200,000. For that you’ll get large windows which allow lots of light transparency from the interior to the exterior; a cool kitchen and amenities like in suite laundry. Honomobo has different layouts and delivers anywhere in North America.
