The handmade beauty of the Beer Can House surprises many first time visitors. The house and surrounding grounds change with the light throughout the day. Cans, bottles, marbles and metal trinkets adorn essentially every inch of the environment. The effect is magical, particularly in the early morning and late afternoon sunlight.
