Dream Home of the Day: Bangerter Homes, a Utah-based housing developer, is hard at work on the construction of a life-size replica of Carl and Ellie’s house from the Disney-Pixar film Up as part of the Herriman Towne Center’s 2011 Parade of Homes.
“I was just watching the movie, and thought, ‘We build houses kind of like that’,” said Blair Bangerter, co-owner of the home-building company with his two brothers. Bangerter told the Salt Lake Tribune that he and his brothers sought and received the approval of Disney Entertainment Group to recreate the now-iconic residence.
The trio had to modify some parts to accommodate real-world physics, and took a few liberties with the rooms not shown in the movie, but the rest is as true to the animated version as can be.
All told, the house (which naturally comes with its own home theater) covers 2,800 square feet, and sports a remarkably affordable price tag of $399k.
Balloons sold separately.
