3-D printing could be the future of construction

There is a 13-room house being built in the Netherlands — with a 3-D printer.
President Obama checked out models of the house last week. So far, one corner of the house is up, just off a canal in Amsterdam.
The builders say this is the future of construction. There’s no waste.
And as a bonus: If you get tired of your house, you can chuck the whole thing in one big recycling bin.
