We are not clever.

This is just Obvious.

The construction market is broken. A 2x4 used to cost $3...now it's $10. The industry doesn't have enough skilled labor to meet demand. People are living in vans because affordable housing is something they can only have in a dream. We have the technology to change that. 3D printed homes aren't coming...they are already here. We just want to speed that up.
