A house covered completely in flattened beer cans remains both an art object and a landmark here in Houston.

John Milkosovich began papering the walls of his house with crushed beer cans in the early '70s, when aluminum siding was all the rage, using as many as 50,000 cans that he had piled up by drinking a six-pack daily over the span of 20 years.

Milkosovich passed away in the mid-'80s, but his wife lived in the house until her death in the mid-'90s and the house was purchased 10 years ago by local nonprofit Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, who restored it and opened it to the public.

Ruben Guevara, head of restoration and preservation of the so-called Beer Can House, said that Milksovich "had no idea what was the fascination about what he was doing."
