People at the National Geographic Channel made the real-life version of Up‘s flying house, several news sites reported on Monday.

As part of their mission for a new series entitled “How Hard Can It Be?“, a team of engineers, scientists and a couple of balloon pilots made the flying house at a private east Los Angeles airfield.

According to reports, the team took about two weeks to plan, build and lift the house on air using balloons. The team used about 300 weather balloons inflated to a height of 8 feet. The house was reported to have a weight of 2,000 pounds. The house reached an altitude of 10,000 feet and floated for about an hour, setting a new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted.
