We don't know if this kind of homebuilding will take off - not our cup of tea, but we'd love to hear others reactions!
We've come across an interesting link that we'd like to share. We build custom homes - actually, very old abandoned homes that will be torn down and we dismantle and re-assemble them. If that sounds interesting to you, just visit ourwebsite; www.therestoredhomestead.com. anyway, a friend of ours, who is a structural engineer, likes to stay on top of really "out-there" developments in home construction and he sent us this link. Here is a researcher using robotics to replace human labor and developing pre-designed molds that allow frames to be poured rather than constructed of wood. In this future, homes can be built in a matter of days, rather than months and can be shaped into any combination of geometric forms – cubes, cones, cylinders, etc. Check this link out to take a peek into mass produced homes of the future: www.isi.edu/news/news.php?story=47.
