With the Diagon Alley Project shutting down on January 20th, creator Jon Chambers needed some peace and quiet at home — and a new challenge.
For those Harry Potter fans out there, you’ll recognize the Burrow, the magical family home of the Weasley family (above). Along with the Edith Macefield-inspired “Up” house, the Burrow is one of the most iconic movie homes of all time.
“I can’t share a whole lot just yet,” Chambers told My Ballard. “I can say we are in the early planning phase for building a life-size replica of the Burrow in the Snoqualmie Valley on a non-profit farm that centers around agricultural conservation and education.”
And here’s the sketch he shared on Instagram over the weekend:
Whoa, that does look like a challenge.
You see, the Weasley home is held up by magic, but to build a real home, you’ll need… permits.
“That’s going to be a major hurdle,” he admits. “With all the planning and approvals we have to go through, construction won’t start until 2019, if approved.”
The Burrow Project, if it becomes a reality, would dwarf Chambers’ driveway-sized Diagon Alley Project. As he told us, “Stay tuned.”
