The tiny house near the Ballard bridge, built between the LA Fitness and Trader Joe’s, referred to by many as the “Up House” may be torn down if no one is interested in moving the home in the next 30 days. This article from ABC.com has more details on the fate of the property. This home has been vacant since 2008 after owner Edith Macefield died, she stayed in the house for two years and insisted she would not move when developers offered to purchase her home to build the businesses in the Ballard Blocks. The folks at Disney have said the movie Up was not based on any true story, but fans of the heartwarming film have taken to visiting the Macefield home and leaving balloons with messages written on them tied to the fence surrounding the property, because the stories are very similar. If you would like to get another look at the real-life Up house you have about another month to check it out. The owner of the property has stated that if anyone is interested they are welcome to haul the house off the property, free of charge.
