At one time -- back in Summer 2005 when I only had the Uni EP, I built the Weasley's house. Unfortunately, I built it on a lot that didn't start out being level, which I found out later is a very bad thing for people who place lots in neighborhoods like Veronaville, as non-level lots seem to permanently alter the terrain. In shallow neighborhoods, this can cause really bad flooding everywhere. So, I decided to remove most of my lots on the exchange and was going to rebuild someday. Until now, I haven't had the motivation to rebuild this one, but I can't help but get excited about the new Apartment Life expansion pack that's coming out in less than a month. I think it's really cool that finally there will be at least a little more magic stuff in the game. With this in mind, I thought this would be the perfect time to dust off and rebuild The Weasley Burrow.

The Weasley Burrow is 5 stories high, and has 6 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The cost is §155,244, although I don't think the Weasley's paid that much, as it looks like most of the building materials were salvaged from abandoned homes and buildings. In defiance of physical laws, The Burrow must be held together mostly by magic. With "stealth stairs" throughout the house, your Weasley sims (except lucky Percy) will have to endure having little privacy, as just about every bedroom is the pathway to the next level up.

Of course, after I rebuilt the original Weasley Burrow because of the non-level edges issue I mentioned, I discovered that with LotAdjuster the edges could be fixed. This is called Murphy's Law, but that's OK. So, I loaded The Basegame + University on my hubby's computer, fiddled with LotAjuster, and yada, yada, yada... the lot is now flat. The floor plan is the same is the original, and the price is about §100K. Please read: I don't think that the modified original (Uni) lot will cause any issues, however, please report any problems that you think may be related to my use of the LotAdjuster in this thread.

For pictures or a .zip file of the original lot, see my blog here.

For a .zip file of the All EP's version of the lot, see my blog here.

Recommended File for All EP's version: If you happen to recover your enchanted car from the Forbidden Forest, you will probably want an invisible driveway recolor which unfortunately didn't package itself with the lot. If you don't already have such a recolor in your Downloads folder, roddyaleixo has some you can get here.

Requirements note for All EP's version: I used all EP's up to FreeTime. I also have Family Fun and Celebration SP's installed, although those may not required, especially if you install the house with Clean Installer. I don't usually include items from the Stuff Packs in my uploads, however I did with this particular lot.

Lot Size: 3x5
