Andrew Dickson - Building Turnkey, Autonomous Homes

The Future of Living

Release Date: 04/25/2019

Andrew Dickson (@bennettdickson, TW) believes the way homes are built is fundamentally flawed. The idea that we're still constructing homes from the ground up, board by board, home by home is, in his opinion, inefficient and old-fashioned. He sees a future of turnkey homes built using pre-fabricated segments, extremely automated, and able to go seamlessly move on and off the electrical grid.

Dickson is the CEO & Founder of Acre Designs, a home construction startup re-imagining the American Home. In this replay from their conversation at the beginning of the year, Blake and Andrew discuss:

  • Why home construction must be change.
  • How Acre's approach to single-family construction also benefits multi-family construction.
  • How to create energy independent homes and neighborhoods.
