A new initiative allows users to design and print out the materials and components to construct a house.

Building your own home could become much easier with custom design pieces that could be printed out via a CNC router and assembled in a snap. Thanks to WikiHouse, a community for open-source house designs, DIYers can soon build their dream home without the hassles that come with it.

WikiHouse’s ultimate goal is to allow people to download free, open-source housing structures, which can then be modified and customized using Google SketchUp. Once you’re happy with the design, you can simply print out the construction pieces with a CNC router. The CNC will cut 18mm sheets of plywood that can be stacked for easy freight and assembled just like a wooden 3D jigsaw puzzle.The constructed structure will be ready to clad, glaze, wire, plumb and finish.
