Big Chill Blog Posts Big Chill Kitchen Brings Disney’s UP House to Life

You may have never heard of Herriman, Utah, but a colorful house from a story many of us know well is nuzzled in this quiet little town. The house we’re talking about stars in Disney Pixar’s feature-length film Up. You may have cried at the opening montage, laughed-out-loud at the silly talking dog, or gasped as the rare bird, Kevin, turned out to be a girl. Now this imaginative tale has come to life and Up fans everywhere are free visit the live version. From murals to furniture, this house handles all the details of the movie right down to the signature on the mailbox. But what’s got all of us at Big Chill excited? If you guessed their quaint little kitchen, you are correct! The Up house wouldn’t be complete without their beach blue Big Chill appliances. Check out the video footage from the interior of the house, and keep your eye out for the kitchen (that’s where we’re hiding of course). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4j08YvFbfI

modern, and cup chock-full of dedicated workers committed to traditional techniques that make our vintage fridges both authentic and high quality. So how do we do it? Simple. We love retro, but we love technology too, which is why we start creating our vintage fridge with a modern foundation, one that features all the up-to-date amenities you’d find in a current day refrigerator. From there we mix our modern base with retro design by using our secret ingredient: a traditional stamping process like they would in the 1950s to create the authentic steel doors. To give it an eyepopping finish, we use a powder coating process to create a durable color finish and sprinkle genuine chrome trim around the edges to give it a nice shine. The steps are simple enough to follow, but the end result? A masterpiece you can sink your retro-loving teeth into. And with that, you have our recipe for a Big Chill Fridge. Enjoy!
