The iconic “Up” house in Seattle will not be demolished after all.
The Edith Macefield house has stood in Seattle since the turn of the 20th century and has been targeted for demolition for at least a decade.
But now, thanks to a nonprofit group, the house will remain standing but will be relocated.
According to broker Paul Thomas, more details about the relocation will be released next week.
“The house really will float away, but not by air,” Thomas said in a press release. “I can’t possibly imagine a more wonderful ending for this chapter of the Edith Macefield story.”

On Wednesday night, Fox29 Philly tweeted out a beautiful picture of the full moon and asked its followers, “Let’s see your moon pictures.”
As you can probably guess, that’s not exactly what they were sent.
From pictures of mooning to Warren Moon, moon pies and moonwalking — the good people of Twitter responded with as many moon puns as they could think of.
Bella luna! Be careful what you ask for!
We all have our off days. Whether there is a lot on our minds — like work, apartments, dating — or we are just in an off mood, generally we can move on from a bad day.
Unfortunately for 19-year-old Maddison Keeney of Australia, whatever was on her mind distracted her in front of a world audience, and her off day was televised for all to see.
Keeney recently competed in the FINA World Aquatic Championships, which are the global tournament for sports including swimming, diving, high diving, open water swimming, synchronized swimming and water polo.
During a dive with a high degree of difficulty at 3.2, her nerves seem to have gotten the best of her and led to this disastrous performance.
