The Burrow

                           

This house is loosly based on Ron Weasley's house in Harry Potter. I say 'loosly' because the basic shape is there, but due to restrictions within the game mechanics, I couldn't get the floor plan exact. So what I've done is make 'The Burrow according to Neashaleigh', (my own creative version of it).

I tried to capture the cluttered, cosy, country, yet functional feel and look that the Weasley's house had. As such, this house is incredibly store heavy. I won't apologise for that because every single piece I put into this house was carefully selected to contribute to the overall feel. Also, with the 'Complete Your Set' option now available at the Store, getting loads of store content is a lot easier.

The pictures I've taken really don't do this build much justice. If you're brave (and have all or most of the store content used), I'd recommend downloading it and having a walk through the magical rooms this house boasts. You can almost smell the old wood and hear the fun and unusual magical things happening here. (Well ok... if you close your eyes and pretend real hard you can :P )

I built the house in Sunset Valley on the lot that's next to the waterfall. It is an unusal sized lot, so it's best positioned there, otherwise you'll find it might look a little odd. However, with a little cosmetic surgery, it will still look good on any lot that's slightly larger.

Here are the technical details:

Lot Size: 36x47
Cost furnished: §330,947
Cost unfurnished: §91,622
EP's: SN, LN, Seas, UL, ST, Gen, Amb, Pets, WA, IP
SP's: MS, OL, TL, FL
Store: Too many to list here. Please view the house on the Exchange to see the comprehensive list.

Yes! Finally a Sims 3 Burrow! It looks exactly as I imagine it and as it is shown in the movies! I was going to make one myself but this one turned out so much better than mine ever would've. Are you going to make any other Harry Potter buildings, like 4 Privet Drive? I know there is one somewhere but it would be nice to have one here where it is 100% guaranteed to be CC free.

Very nice Neashaleigh!  When I first looked at your original front of the house picture I thought to myself... Hmmm, that looks like the house from Harry Potter!  Then I read your text and saw that's exactly what you were going for!  Excellent job at capturing the Weasley family feel with the cluttered house.  I also love that you put their flying car in the garage too.  It definitely shows that you took the time to pay attention to the little details.   :)

Thank you both. I may well try some of the other HP themed houses. I have someone asking for Grimauld's House (Is that right?) The one from Order of the Phoenix where it's hidden between two other houses. I believe it was Sirrius Black's family house? Anyway, I might try that one. If I can find blueprints, I'll do Privet Drive as well maybe. I'll see :)

It's Grimmauld Place. It belongs to The Ancient and Noble House of Black (Obsessive). Basically, it belonged to Sirius Black and his ancestors until Sirius Black died, when he handed it to Harry.

That's right. You know, there's plenty of interior pictures of Grimmauld Place on the internet, but I'm having a hard time finding interior shots of 4 Privet Drive. I've dug out my Harry Potter films and will need to watch them again lol. It's been a while.

IT'S PERFECT!!!!  I immediately recognized it as the Weasley house! 

What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

I just so happen to be watching Harry Potter when I saw 'The Burrow' in the new unread post. This house is so awesome! Amazing job.

Wow, this looks amazing! I have all of Sims 3, and it is installed on my computer, but I have just started playing 4, and would love to see this one as content for 4 if possible. If not, would you mind me building one off of this 'floor plan' for 4?

Hi there.

Thanks for your comment. I don't currently have Sims 4, so I'm happy for you to go ahead and use the plans to make one. I'd love to see pics so feel free to post some up on my thread here once you're done :)

I know I'm quite late, I'm not sure if i should even comment, but I just want to say I think this house is pretty amazing. I'd love to download if I could manage to get the store items.
