You can see more on artist Robert Bruno's process of building a steel house at www.robertbruno.com. Robert sez it okay for travelers to stop and take their own photos of his steel home's exterior. "Up until a few weeks ago, people just wandered in, but now I've moved some things in and occasionally spend the night.
