Neither the Orange Show or the beer can house do anything for me that make me want to move on. I know a lot of work went into these folks art obsessions but as I don't think much of the results I can't recommend them. I have friends who think ever visitor should be driven by y the wonder. I...

They call it a beer can house but it's not really made out of beer cans. The owner just simple hung hundreds (it may be thousands but at this point does it matter?) of chains made out of the tops of beer cans. Throughout the years they have added a couple of new things featuring cans but in the end,... More

Its in the middle of a neighborhood, but it's quite a site. If you have some time, drive by, stop and take a look around. It's a pretty eccentric house, but the detail put into this creation is amazing.

These are my favorite kinds of attractions. Yes, the whole property is covered in beer cans and pop tops. Friendly staff and a great example of what a quirky imagination is capable of.

It's a famous Houston spot, just not sure why. I imagine if I did this to my house, nobody would be impressed. Maybe it's because he did it first. It is just a house where the siding has been covered up by flattening beer cans. All I could think of was, isn't this a code violation, and what must the... More

We stopped here but did not have time to take the actual tour. The house is in a nice neighborhood and was created over 20 years according to the sign. As advertised everything is covered in beer cans. Many of the beer cans colors have faded due to weather but you can still make many of them out. This gives... More

When googling places to see in Houston, this was on my list. This is located back in the middle of a neighborhood, but worth mapping in. This impressive house is covered in tin cans (we spotted more than 1 7up can :) Very fun to see, they offer tours daily (we didn't go inside.) Support the arts and see this... More

This is an icon in Houston, tucked in the middle of a normal neighborhood. It's amazing to see the exterior of an entire house decorated with beer cans. There is a paid tour but it's not necessary to appreciate the art. However, donations do help maintain the house so I always drop some dollars whenever I take my out of... More
