3D Home Printing

The Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine is pioneering 3D home printing in Muscatine County, in collaboration with many local and state organizations.

As a supplemental tool for housing development, 3D technology has the potential to help Muscatine County and rural communities nationwide address the housing shortage and create affordable, sustainable, and innovative housing.

The plan remains to 3D print ten homes - three in the Arbor Commons subdivision, six located in infill lots in Muscatine in partnership with Muscatine Center for Social Action and Muscatine County Habitat for Humanity, and at least one in West Liberty. Hagaerty Earthworks has been selected as the local general contractor.

Housing Information

The housing stock is the largest single capital investment and collective community asset. There is currently a supply-side failure that is having cascading effects on the community. Currently 11,000 people drive into Muscatine County to work each day, including 25% of our district educators. Rural areas often attract fewer developers, so local partners have joined together to support this priority innovatively and collaboratively.
