i previously blogged about the national geographic channel’s “how hard can it be” tv show replicating a house flying with balloons from disney-pixar’s up (twice), but now there is an actual house replicating the one carl and ellie lived in–an exact copy down to just about every detail.
bangerter homes, the developer, was granted permission to replicate the house by disney, which is an incredible accomplishment in itself. i work with disney and they have a lot of strict policies/rules. the house is located in herriman, utah and just recently finished the exterior. the interior is still a work in-progress but they’re following the blueprint from the film and being mindful of every detail, no matter how insignificant it may seem–including the weather vane and garden hose.
it’s open for tours starting july 29th until august 14th with an opening asking price of $400,000. pretty affordable, but it does seem rather small and as much as i love up, pixar, and collectibles…you won’t find me submitting a bid.
it is awfully cute though…
