Publish date: July 4, 2022

Lodging made mostly from recycled plastics is coming to Kern County. An extended-stay hotel in Ridgecrest won approval last week for 14 residential units that will be 3D-printed in Southern California before being hauled in a flatbed truck, hoisted on a crane and bolted onto new foundations. Thirteen will be one-bedroom units measuring 540 square feet, and one measuring 900 with two bedrooms. The larger building is priced at $199,000.
