Now this is a fine example of junkitecture — junk used as building material: License plates repurposed as shingles.
Built by Dan Phillips of Phoenix Commotion (mentioned in our post on the two-story, Houston-area office building constructed from salvaged material):
When folks return license plates for new ones at the tax office, Dan asks the office to save them for him. They make a dandy roof — reflective, which is a big deal in the Texas summer sun. The beefy galvanized metal yields a 75-year roof.
