House from Disney's Up movie being built to promote city’s Towne Center.

This article comes to us from the Salt Lake Tribune.

Utah’s Disney/Pixar fans won’t have to drive all the way to California this summer to get a piece of Disney magic. They’ll just have to drive to Herriman.

Carl, Russell and the house from Disney/Pixar’s “Up” are coming to the Herriman Towne Center development in the 2011 Parade of Homes. Bangerter Homes is building a replica of the cartoon creation, complete with balloons.

“I was just watching the movie, and thought, ‘We build houses kind of like that, ’” said Blair Bangerter, one of three brothers in the custom-home building company.

The brothers sought the blessing of Disney Entertainment Group before proceeding, and received the company’s approval to do some Walt Disney-style “imagineering” of their own.

The outside of the house is painted in vibrant sherbet shades, and comes complete with Carl and Ellie’s hand-printed mailbox and custom-made garden hose reel. Builders had to make some small modifications, Bangerter explained, as the laws of physics don’t apply to cartoon buildings. The chimney and fireplace have been tweaked in the real version so they actually match up, and the house is a narrow rectangle, rather than a square. With an upper story and a finished basement, it comes in at a roomy 2,800 square feet. Asking price is expected to be $399,000.
