Beer Can House, Houston Home Covered in 50,000 Beer Cans

Beer Can House

The Beer Can House is a small home in Houston that is covered in an estimated 50,000 beer cans. Retired upholsterer John Milkovisch began decorating the house with beer cans back in 1968. Over the next 18 years he covered the exterior with flattened can siding, made cascading garlands of can tops to hang off the roof, and decorated the property with pull tabs and other can bits. Milkovisch passed away in the 1980s and the house is now a museum run by the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art. For more, see this Los Angeles Times article.
