Once this home is finished, it will be picture perfect. It looks like nothing has changed in years though. We didn’t stop because traffic was awful. No parking nearby either. Got the gist of it though.

It's hard to even see the house now with the new thick fencing. If you're already nearby, maybe it's worth a stop, but it's probably not worth finding parking for.

It was fun to go visit this house. One of the most famous houses in the USA. Still standing (barely), but crammed in the midst of a huge business district with retail shops, grocery stores, bars and restaurants. So strange that this house still exists today. It is a great photo-op. A great location, so you don't have to worry about driving too far out of the way to see this landmark. A few trees block the house, but you can still walk right up to it and take a photo or two. If you are interested in history and the story, be sure to stop by to see the house next time you are in Seattle.

I love the story behind it, but truthfully, it's not much to see. I'm not sure if it was being renovated when we went (Oct. 2019) but we almost missed it. Drivers around there were very rude! We got honked at just for slowing down, not stopping. There was no place to park. The area had an industrial feel. I'm glad we stopped, but wouldn't go out of the way again.

Amazing she held out for so long. Even more amazing is the tavern nearby that has stood up to developers and is still a thriving business.

Looks like it not much just a tiny run down house in between Corporate Franchises. If I drove by not knowing I would think why not just demo the old house.
Of course went there is was “Up House” not the inspiration for the movie but Disney did add balloons to it at one point for a PR reasons.
The history the house is intriguing and after reading about Edith strength and ability to stand up to Corporate is amazing! I guess you can say in her case Money dose not buy happiness! So the house is so much more than the “up house” it an empowering story! Read about Edith before you go!

The story behind the house is very interesting. However, the house that's still left is not much to see. If you like the story behind it, it may depress you a little to see what the house looks like now.

This is a cute place, symbol history and inspiration for Pixar's movie "Up". Nice place to take some pictures. Before arriving, you can read a little about Edith Macefield's history, or just arrive and contemplate how odd / cute is the little house surrounded by the big Shopping Mall.

Edith Macefield was, to say the least, a spunky and powerful woman. Whether her refusal to sell was a stance against big developers or simply her desire to live out her days in her home, her little house stands today as a symbol in the Ballard neighborhood.

It's even more meaningful when you know that Pixar used the house for a (failed) photoshoot for the move "Up," and when you dig deeper into children's literature and recognize the parallels between the Macefield and the house depicted in Virginia Lee Burton's picture book "The Little House" (also a Disney short). The trope of a little house surrounded by the big city is a powerful social commentary and seeing the Macefield house in person solidifies one's understanding.

I visited the house with balloons in hand to add to what I expected to be a big collection on the fence, but apparently it had been cleaned recently, because the only visible evidence of balloons were a few ribbons that had been left behind. But now my modest balloons have once again begun the cycle. (Another group who visited at the same time were also surprised to find no balloons there.)

The house is easy to reach via public transportation and is close to stores and restaurants.

Although Macefield's story resonates with many who either dislike the rampant development going on in Seattle, love Virginia Lee Burton's "The Little House" or enjoy the film "Up," the bottom line is that the Macefield house is all but destroyed. Only a boarded up frame remains. With each passing year it seems unlikely that there will be a happy ending where the little house is loaded on a truck and moved out to the countryside, far away from the city or float away under a cloud of thousands of balloons. Still, if you are going to the Ballard neighborhood for other reasons it is relatively easy to find.
