Third generation homebuilder Blair Bangerter’s claim-to-fame inspiration came while watching the Pixar film Up, when he realized the starring house was so well planned out, it could be built in real life. After getting permission from Disney/Pixar, Bangerter Homes set about building the fictional turn-of-the-century style house, and the results will be featured in the 65th Salt Lake Parade of Homes—with many balloons attached to the roof.

The house is being replicated down to details like furniture and wall murals. “Many dedicated sub-contractors and suppliers who worked on this one-of-a-kind home have enthusiastically added their expertise to get the details right,” said Bangerter. “More than once you could catch them using portable DVD players on the site to review how some detail looked in the movie and how it could be replicated.”
