Beer Can House: A Shiny Testament to Recycling

The Beer Can House, located in Houston, is an overlooked tourist attraction exemplifying recycling, creativity, and the city’s spirit. The house was transformed over 18 years by retired upholsterer, John Milkovisch, who covered his bungalow in thousands of beer cans. As well as being an inventive recycling project, the house offers practical benefits including insulation during hot Texas summers. Now a part of the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, the house is a testament to ingenuity, sustainability, and Houston’s unique charm.
