Looks cool but unfortunately we need less plastic in our lives and oceans.

Dd you read the link? It is all recycled plastics-pop and water bottles, milk bottles, plastic chairs. 

But I would want to see some studies regarding the off-gassing before wanting to live in a plastic house, recycled or not.

I concur that off-gassing is something that deserves more study.

The house looked nice though and earthquake resistance is a huge plus.

It reminded me a little of a 3D-printed house I saw recently.

Using a Vulcan II 3D printer, it took 48 hours to make at a cost of US$10,000.

"One panel measures one meter 20 centimeters wide by two meters 40 centimeters high with a thickness of 10 to 13 millimeters. Many of these panels come together to make a house."

This sounds roughly equivalent to a 1/2" sheet of plywood or drywall. I wonder if the same material is used interior and exterior? What would be the framing between them? How are they fastened together? Interesting but I need/crave more info.

I'm not in the market for a house, either. But I am sometimes interested and curious about things which don't affect me directly 🙂
