Shell House Discovered in Puerto Rico May Be One Man's Life-Long Craft Project (PHOTOS)

One man's souvenir collection takes over his home.

A shell house completely plastered top to bottom with one man's life-long beach finds was photographed by Reddit user iamnotdenny. The Redditor commented, "We found this guy's house in Puerto Rico when he offered to let us use his beach access for free. He said, 'If anybody gives you trouble, tell them Tio Jimmy said you could be here.'" Well, Tio Jimmy, thanks to you we've died and gone to crafter's heaven.

We've never seen so many shells -- ever. They're artfully arranged in mosaic patterns on every surface of the home, the wall surrounding the oceanfront property and even the car parked underneath. We couldn't make this stuff up if we tried. Click through the slideshow below, and let us know your thoughts.
