Balloons aren't liable to carry away a house recently completed in Herriman, Utah, but a quick look could fool you into believing otherwise. Bangerter Homes of South Jordan, Utah, recently constructed a replica of the balloon-propelled home in Pixar's animated film "Up" which resembles the dwelling right down to the last detail.

From the custom-made shingles and steep-pitched roof down to a hand-carved bird resting on its mantel, the home in the Salt Lake City suburb has been painstakingly constructed to replicate an abode which, until now, has only existed in digital form.

"We've really gone over and above to match the detailing," said Adam Bangerter, who runs Bangerter Homes with his two brothers. "If you see it in the movie, we've done it."
