I just can't make up my mind.

I'd use "Soratobu". On my reference it appears as a verb itself: "to fly in the sky". Here it would be something like "Skyflying House of Grandpa Carl"

There is also:

空飛ぶ円盤: (sky)flying saucer

The following example shows that "sora" and "tobu" can be 2 separate words, but then a different syntax is required:

私は鳥が1羽[空]を[飛ぶ]のを見た。: I saw a bird fly across the sky. (sora o tobu)

This "sky" thing reminds me about the "Aozora vs Soukuu" discussion below... :P I would love you to elaborate a bit about why using "Soukuu" is the correct option ;)

OK, I agree about Soratobu.
