Print your next house? SHADE your next house.

PopSci has a newer article on this, which is a bit of an update.  Some folks are going to use sandstone.

That’s GOOD.  Stone is a crappy insulator, which means it picks up lots of heat from the outside, but also keeps really cool in the shade.  Seriously, take a stone (not brick) lawn tile, and move it back and forth from sun to shade.

One or two shade trees, and you can blow off the A/C bill.
