Condos are being built all around this house, but they have decided to keep it where it is. It is a unique little house completely decorated with beer cans. A 5-10 minute visit is all you need.

Very creative to use beer cans to side a house and use the lid to create shades and wind chimes. We did take the tour with the guide. Very informative.

Someone's personal obsession, and I can respect that, but it seems to me that if you're looking to do a thing no one else has ever done, you might give a thought to why not. I can't help thinking this is basically some good-natured trolling...More
