Richard Van Os Keuls is a Maryland-based architect who has taken upcycling to the next level with his aluminum can-covered home. The aluminum can home is actually a plywood add-on to the original house that is covered head-to-toe in over 22,000 aluminum cans.

Everything from the roofs to the walls is covered in aluminum cans. While Richard Van Os Keuls may seem like an eco-innovator, the architect admits that he was just looking for a cheap and durable way to cover his home. Accidental ecovation is better than no ecovation. Check out the aluminum can covered home above.
