I'm Up in Utah!


While I came to Utah for BYU Education Week, I've had a highlight of my trip already, without stepping foot on campus yet. 

John's parents suggested that we drive to see a house today.  Carl's and Ellie's house (from the movie "Up"):


We were delighted to actually be invited inside!  The builders kept the house as true to the movie as possible.




Look at all these details!






The nursery and master bedroom are upstairs:





The house had other rooms that weren't in the movie, but that were wonderful additions:








The house was quite popular, so I was unable to get a photo of the exterior without getting other people in the photo, but to see photos, visit http://bangerterhomes.com/up/.

What a fun afternoon!

  1. OH, how wonderful! I didn't know this house existed in real life too!! I loved, LOVED that movie. So moving, the story of Carl and Ellie. (we have no children either, I'm very outgoing, Henk is the quiet type, so I could relate. We DID make the trip we were dreaming off though.)
    It's in Utah?? We where there in 2010, but hope to go back some day.... If it's still there I want to visit for sure!!

    1. The house was built as part of a development of homes, and was open for tours prior to being sold. It has since been sold, and I don't know if the owners will open it sometimes for tours or not. Hopefully so! BTW, I think UP is my favorite Pixar movie.
