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?

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!

Herriman, Utah has been in the spotlight the past month, as Bangerter Homes recently built a great replica of the house from Up in the city. People have descended upon Utah from all over the country to lay eyes upon the home. What places this piece of architecture above all those that have been built previously is the fact that the inside of the home looks just like what we saw in the film as well.
