We’ve all been there.
You’ve come home from a night out and found that your fridge is empty.
Your favorite drink is gone.
You want to make dinner and can’t find it.
You look around and realize your kitchen is completely empty.
All of these are the same scenario: a house built out of cardboard.
The same problem that plagued us as a kid: no way to get our cardboard home.
Luckily, there’s a solution: a 3-D printer.
The DIY solution: 3D printing your home A few years ago, I built a small, one-bedroom apartment in my parents’ garage in New Jersey.
I had a few problems: the place was too small for my 2-year-old daughter to sit in, and the attic was in disrepair.
Luckily for me, my dad’s business, The Dorm, had been selling 3D printed beds, so I bought them.
The bed was so perfect, I thought, why not try 3D-printing it myself?
In the end, my project turned out to be much more impressive than I could have imagined.
I didn’t even need to build a house out of wood.
I printed out a custom-designed 3D model of the whole thing and took it to the printer.
After about three weeks, the bed was ready to build.

The bed was just big enough to hold the printer, but not too big to put up a window or open doors.
It was so much fun building it out of just cardboard, but it took some work to make it print perfectly.
After printing the bed, I took it outside, built a roof over it, and moved the bed into the attic.
What you’re about to read is the story of how I learned to build my own home out of a cardboard box.
The story started when my father took me to the local hardware store and asked for a set of 3D printers.
“Hey, do you have a 3d printer?” he asked, pointing to one of the printers hanging next to a cabinet.
“No, but you could buy one for $20, and we’ll show you how.”
I had a feeling I would find my way to this 3D manufacturing company when I got home from the printer test, but as I started building my house, I realized it wasn’t quite the house I’d envisioned.
A 3D build of the entire house.
So, I had to start from scratch.
When I bought my 3D prints, I knew I wanted a house that was completely open to the elements.
I knew the best place to store everything was in the basement, but I also knew I could never build the house out there.
That was when I learned about 3D modeling.
In the beginning, 3D models are made out of plastic.
Plastic is pretty rigid, but plastic can bend if the model is too heavy.
I wanted to build the base of my house out entirely out of the stuff you can buy in a hardware store.
I wanted to have all the pieces on a single plastic base that would fit on a piece of cardboard or a piece that would make a perfect wall frame.
I even decided to print the entire structure out of polyester.
But building out the whole house from scratch is not easy.
I first had to print out the house and build the walls.
That took more time than I expected, because I didn’t know the right materials for my house.
One of my problems with building a house is that there’s usually no way for me to check if the walls are complete.
I would have to build everything myself, which I could not do.
My first 3D print ended up being a simple 2-by-4-foot rectangle.
Then I had one problem: I wanted the walls to be tall enough to be visible.
To do that, I printed a rectangle that would be about 1/8th of an inch tall.
This meant that I needed to build around a wall that was at least one-half of an average size, and at least 1/4 of an additional inch.
I ended up having to make a 3x3x1 foot rectangle, which would take about two weeks to print and print again.
This wasn’t going to work.
The next problem was that the house was too large.
I needed a house with a few floors, not a complete house.
I started to think about what the best way to build this house would be.
After some trial and error, I finally settled on a 3×3 plan.
I’d start with a 2-foot-wide section of wood on the floor, then add 2-1/2-foot sections of plywood to the end of that section, then lay down an even thicker wall.
The final wall was the longest I could lay down, and I wanted it to be
