Recycled House materials

After renovating his house, Architect Richard Van Os Keuls, found bricks too expensive, and didn't want the usual siding alternatives. He decided on using flattened aluminum soda and beer cans. His goal wasn't to be "artsy" or make a "green" statement, he simply wanted an inexpensive way to cover the side of his house. Find the whole story here. Looks amazing, but would be so time consuming.

This guy smashed beer cans into tiles too a little less obviously 

More recycled produce for housing at All That Is Interesting. Houses, temples and even whole villages made from recycled beer/glass bottles
