Looking at Carl and Ellie's dream house, it is pretty evident that they really loved the animated Pixar film, 'UP!'. I mean, not only did they commission a real-life replica of this cut and cozy yet adventurous abode, they also had a themed engagement photo session that Trend Hunter Michael Hines brought to our attention early last year.
Built by the imaginative folk at Bangerter Homes, Carl and Ellie's dream house spans 2800 square feet for the very reasonable price of $399,000. Considering that this idea is Disney property, I'm surprised at how affordable it was to build it. And yes, they did get Disney's approval before going ahead and building it.
Although this isn't the first replica of the 'UP!' house, it certainly is one of the first private homes to have been constructed. I wouldn't be surprised if it naturally turns into a tourist hotspot though.
