Last year, the Hamblin family purchased a faithful reproduction of the iconic Up house. The unique exterior of the home was recently in danger of being repainted, as the neighborhood was considering whether it violated the “rules” put forth by the community. Thankfully, it was decided that the house’s paint colors would be kept as-is. What about the interior? While we have seen images and brief tours of the inside of the house, we have been unable to get an in-depth look. The Hamblins are aiming to change that, as they have posted a video providing an extensive tour of the rooms and how they have added to the space. Watch it after the break!
