Actually - if you read about the FC charm - you will see that it
protects a SECRET (That is in the books). SO it follows that - at the
time that the FC charm is cast - what it protects must be only known to
the people involved. THe location of a person's home is NOT a secret to
the owner of the home or those that live there - so that cannot be a
secret - regardless of who casts the spell.

Excellent point! I never thought of that way, but it makes perfect
sense.


I;m still a bit puzzled at how knowing the secret makes the house
visible when that isn't how it worked for the Potters.
