“I hope I stay here until my last dying days.”

Those are the words of Tim Shea, who has come a long way since his days as a homeless man once struggling with heroin addiction. He is now the first person ever to live in a 3D-printed house, according to the home’s maker.

On the outskirts of Austin, Texas, 70-year-old Shea has settled into his 400-square-foot home constructed by 3D printing. His new home is situated in the Community First! Village site, which is comprised of houses for the chronically homeless.
