Beer Can House
Retired upholsterer John Milkovisch keeps in real when it comes to exterior decorating. Started in 1968, he used thousands of marbles, rocks and metal pieces in concrete and redwood to landscape his yard. He redefined aluminum siding and eventually strung beer cans from the roof edges. It is estimated that more than 50,000 cans decorate the structure.
