Beer Can House

"Rehab is for Quitters!" the sign outside of Louis Torres' house in Fort Worth, Texas, where it's always beer thirty all day, any day.

Tui Snider of Mental Mosaic posted ths amazing photo of the front gate of Torres' house, which is festooned with thousands of empty cans of beer. As you can guess, Torres drinks exclusively Miller Lite and Milwaukee's Best Light - which gives the unusual decor a distinctive blue pallete.

According to NBCDFW, the whole thing got started when he decided to string empty cans of beer as a DIY ornament:

He wrapped the end of a long, thin wire around a weight, tossed it over one of the limbs of a hackberry tree in his back yard, and started stringing cans onto it. When the string was about 30 feet long, he tied it off to his chain-link fence.

Impressed with the results, Torres decided to do it over and over again. The "Beer Can House" has now become a popular tourist attraction, and Torres often discover people leaving him packs of beer. "Some days I'll get home and find 12-packs sitting inside the gate," he said.
