In the 2009 Disney animated movie Up, retired balloon salesman Carl Fredrickson decides to lift his house to the skies. He ties thousands of balloons to the roof, lifting both him and his house off the foundation. It seems Carl wasn’t just trying to lift his house; he wanted to take it with him on an adventure.
Although Carl succeeded in lifting his house with balloons, they aren’t the best real-world solution for lifting much of anything, let alone houses.
