A newly completed 2,000-square-foot 3-D printed home in Islandia is now on the market. 

West Babylon-based developer Charles Weinraub teamed up with 3-D concrete printing pioneer SQ4D to build the four-bedroom, two-bath ranch on .21 acres at 42 Dean St., which Weinraub says is the largest 3-D printed home to be built on Long Island. 

The new home replaces an older house that was damaged by fire and demolished.  

Advocates of 3-D printed construction say the process has many benefits, not the least of which is cost. Using 3-D printed concrete can save as much as 40 percent on forms, footings, foundation, walls and roofing compared to traditional construction. 

The concrete used in 3-D printed construction is fire, flood and insect resistant and the process is conducive to custom designs. 

“3-D printed construction is the biggest disruptor in the construction industry in more than a century,” Weinraub told LIBN. “In my opinion, automated construction is the solution to the area’s housing shortage.” 

After completing the Islandia project, Weinraub will soon break ground on a 2,300-square-foot 3-D printed house in Nesconset. He is also planning on developing a 25-lot subdivision in Riverhead where all of the homes will be constructed using 3-D printing. 

The Islandia house, offered at $499,999, is listed with Dan Oneil of Signature Premier Properties. Oneil will be holding an open house at the property from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 18 and Sunday, March 19.
