The Weasley Burrow

I don't know about you, 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.

At one time -- way back 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. Anyway, I ended up deleting just about everything from the exchange at the time I realized this. I just didn't have the interest for the longest time to rebuild any of those lots, but now that there will be witches and magic I couldn't resist rebuilding this one:

The Burrow is built on a 3x5 lot, 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.

Requires: all EP's up to FreeTime. I also have Family Fun and Celebration SP's, although those may not required, especially if you install the house with Sims2Pack Clean Installer. I don't usually include items from the Stuff Packs in my uploads, however I did with this particular lot.

Recommended File:
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.
