There was the National Geographic hot-air balloon version, the lazy-man's version, and now, at long last, an actual, real-life version of the house made famous in the Disney/PIxar flick Up. Utah-based home builder Bangerter Homes has just put the finishing touches on the 2,800-square-foot, four-bedroom house, which mimics the movie version soup to nuts, from the weathervane, paint colors, and siding outside to the interior details and (eventually) furniture. "There weren't blue prints out there for the 'Up' house it's an animated movie. So we scaled it out using our experience as custom homebuilders," said Adam Bangerter, who had to seek permission from Disney before embarking on the project. If you happen to be in the Herriman, Utah, area, the builder is offering tours; it'll then be up for grabs for anyone willing to spend $400K.
