The Up House in Real Life: Architecture Design Inspired by Film

Disney made Blair Bangerter's dreams come true. The strict disciples of intelectual rights rarely grant permission for works spun off of their creations, but luckily (and surprisingly) they granted him permission to build a reproduction of the cute and colorful victorian home that costars in Up.

The home, located in a Salt Lake City suburb, looks as endearing in real life as it is in the film, though I really wish there was a photo with a golden retriever curled up on the front porch.

Blair also recreated the interior of the home, complete with custom artwork and furniture from the movie, like Carl and Ellie's chairs. Though reproductions of the reproduction are forbidden, at least there will be one Up home in existence (and wouldn't multiples ruin the magic a little anyway?).
