• How to Make a Functional Hogwarts Castle

    Compiled by Berrybrick. Updated 20 November 2010. Contains 48 sets.
    This is a list for making a Hogwarts from the Harry Potter theme. It would be rather expensive to follow this list, so it is more for inspirtation. Another thing, I have it set to hold flesh charecters. If you have any suggestion or comments, leave them on my wikia talk page (a link is provided on my profile).

Get two of this. Use one for pieces and build the other. Use the two Great Hall's to make one large one with four tables and a longer staff table. Take everything out of Gryffindor and Astronomy towers (including the owls) and the Trophy room. Make Dumbledore's office and the astronomy tower taller using the pieces from the extra set. Make a sliding wall that can support a custom gargoyle in this new section. Also move the staircase up to the new part of the tower. Use some of the pieces from the extra pieces to make an owlery. Use the extra cat as Crookshanks. Put your own furniture in the empty areas. If possible, put a large rotating staircase in Gryffindor Tower (because I think it is really the tower of the grand staircase), though this might not be possible as it requires removing the floors. Turn the revolving suit of armor stand into a revolving sink featuring a snake in some way, keep the diary in the back.

Put this on the right of the ground floor Dumbledore's tower to make it look like stairs leading to a window. Then build a small balcony.

You will need at least two of these for the hoops. You could then cherry pick other players.

Subtheme is General as the set includes both Aragog from Chamber of Secrets and Norbert from Philospher’s Stone.
Bricklist notes
Use this as Hagrid's hut. In my opinion, it is the better version. You can put the owls in the owlrey. You don't need the horribly done giant spider. Put the hut near the quidditch field.

Use this as the entrance hall and have the great hall near the side. Take out the bed, fireplace, and everything in the room of requirment. You can put the owls in the owlry if you want, but they aren't printed. Put the vanishing cabinet on the second floor of the room of requirment (if it does not fit, put it on the bottom floor), Put the Reducto target on the bottom floor (or on the top if the cabinet doesn't fit). Use the trophies from 4842 to make a larger trophy room. Take Sirius's face out of the fireplace and put it in Dumbledore's office (with green flames if possible). Try to make two more of the green beds for later.

You get another Buckbeak, you don't need him though. Take out whatever is in the bottom of the tower and add a desk and other office like things. Put Flitwick in there (in the book it was Flitwick's office).

Use this in behind the entrance hall, about the distance of a 10x10 baseplate (actually use a baseplate) and build a fountain in the middle. Have the greenhouse somewhere close, but not on the baseplate. Take off the gray part of Gryffindor Tower and make it taller using some pieces left over from 4842, but still use the portrait, unless you want to use a yellow lady or blank one. Put the fireplace from 4842 on the floor above the beds unless you want to use the one from 5378. Also put the table with the Marauders' Map on that floor. Put custom furniture in the other of the tower and in some of the empty rooms around the castle. Put the dementor gates and put them in the front of 5378, then make a fence like in graveyard duel to go with it. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO GO AROUND THE WHOLE CASTLE!

You really just need the pensive (the purple disk), put it in Dumbledore's office along with some of the more interesting objects. Then take it apart and use it the pieces for custom areas. You could also use the gargoyle for the purpose mentioned at the start of the list. If you want to, you can use the Purple robes(or pink from 4757) for Dumbledore, if you use a flesh face, his beard will cover the yellow.

This one will take quite a bit of remodeling to do. I'll let you use your imagination on this one, and don't forget the 4842 furniture. Put it on the ground floor to save trouble.

Put the two towers on the side of the viaduct. They may be combined to make the updated astronomy tower taller if so desired.

Add tan 1x1 pillars to the viaduct and a roof similar to the one on the coach in 4841. The roof would have to be made two studs wider

Put the viaduct inbetween 5378 and the gates to Hogwarts/Hogsmeade.

First of all, you will need acromantula, but sadly, neither versions of Aragog are very good, so you have three choices:
1)Use this one which is blocky but better than the 2010 version
2)Use the unrealistic/uneven 2010 version
3)Make a custom version

Use the webbed area in your forest.

More spiders will be needed for you acromantula cove. Luckily, old HP sets are littered with them. Your forest should also have bats and black owls. Also unnessesary to sets, but useful in this case.
