Neosephiroth: thanks for confirmation! I am too convinced this is the conflict that lead to the crashes. I know it *can* be made compatible, unfortunately not by me (this exceeds my technical knowledge).
Thank you very much for the kind words!

As far as I know, the EEs incorporate a lot of the overhauls already? Maybe I'm mixing something up, but that was my impression.

@Jastey: I just tested the Extended Lighthouse component from your excellent Lure of the Siren's Call mod v16.3 on a non-enhanced BGT install without BGGO (Baldur's Gate Graphical Overhaul) installed and it works perfectly. I'm not a modder. Just a Baldur's Gate enthusiast and fan of your mods/work. I too believe the issue lies with a conflict between what BGGO is trying to do vs. Extended Lighthouse. Not sure if there will be a workaround in the near future. However, at this time, it appears you can only install one or the other. You cannot have both installed without creating serious problems such as CTD.

My personal opinion: I would recommend Extended Lighthouse over BGGO because the latter has not been updated much beyond v1.8 and the original author appears to have abandoned the project leaving it in a semi-broken/glitch-prone state (from what I have read on the forums). I applaud the author for what they tried to do by sprucing up some of the graphical oddities from the original game and giving many of the areas a fresh coat of paint, but until someone fixes the bugs/glitches that remain, I will regrettably no longer be including it in my mod list. A real shame too because I love eye-candy! Perhaps there is an updated version where it got fixed with EE/EET? This I cannot verify.

Update again! The crash seems to be connected to install order with Baldur's Gate Graphics Overhaul! (See also here.)

If anyone can provide a fix if LotSC is installed after BGGO to re-insert the door, I would appreciate it!

Update: I played the Extended Lighthouse Area component in my BGT and it doesn't crash neither at day nor at night. Anyone else having any problems?

Unfortunately, that still crashes it out when cheating my way to those places. Also there isn't anyone in the eastern house; I'll try to console him in. Thanks for your response!

The crashes mentioned above happened on the lighthouse area itself, not for trying to enter the houses.
You could try whether you could cheat yourself into the interiors in question. There is nothing of interest, though, to be honest. As long as you can enter the house with the old man inside and go further with the quest, at least you can finish the quest.
Lighthouse area:

western house:

Maybe the entries in the mod areas refer to the wrong area names since those vary for BG:EE/BGT/EET which might lead to the crash if using the doors. In this case, cheating is the way to go.

If this also leads to crashes, then let me know. It might be possible to replace the interior areas with versions that do not crash, but I do not have time to provide them currently.

 I'm running a pretty mod heavy install of EET, and I just ran into the problem of crashing when I try to enter the lighthouse after saving the boy. It crashes for both this and the western house, but not the eastern house. I read above that it was fixed, is there anything I can do or add to my Override folder or something? I do also have The Calling installed, which does something with the Sirines, but shouldn't interfere with the areas added by this mod, I would think. It happens both day and night, as I slept before entering to make it daytime in the game. Thanks for any help!

The Extended Lighthouse Area compnent crashes for BGT. Do not install this component on BGT until this is fixed.

If anyone wants to provide fixes, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks! fluke13's fixes for BG:EE are working as expected.

If anyone would give this a go for BGT that would be great, as the last report I have spoke of crashing area in BGT for installed extended lighthouse area.

I played with this is my current SoD run and everything worked fine.

I missed this reply completely.
Just to clearify: The interior areas were part of the original mod from the start. The "Extended Lighthouse Area" is only responsible for removing the rubble in front of the doors outside.

Unfortunately, the report about working lighthouse area is of no use since the game type (BGT? BG:EE?) is not specified.

I've tested it, and it works. I tested both day and night cycles, and the indoor areas. Although I found the extended areas to be lacking - the entrance to the small western building in the lighthouse's compound is on the east side of the building's exterior, but the interior map has it on the west side. Also, the basement map from IWD has a non-intractable ladder. These maps don't really fit the area. Also, the use of Orrick's Tower entrance for the base level of the Lighthouse, and then a library tower level for the 2nd / top level of the lighthouse are not suitable. All in all, I found the maps to be a distraction from the content because they didn't fit.

As is often the case with modding, I think "less is more" applies to this component.

 Are there any experience with the extended lighthouse area component? Does it work in BG:EE and EET now?
I have a bugreport that the (unchanged) BGT version is crashing at night...  :'(

Again, I am at the end of my knowledge how to fix this. Any help welcome.

fluke13 provided working tis for the EE games, so v15 hopefully fixed the crashing lighthouse area problem for installed componant "Extended Lighthouse Area"!
Thank you to fluke13 for the tis (pvrz)!

I would be happy if the new version could be tested: Does the area work for you, too?
Note: The component "Extended Lighthouse Area" did never and will not work on Tutu (will be skipped automatically).

Version 15 comes with the following changes:
- Ardrou will now give the correct dialogue if her son was saved without talking to her first
   - fixed install bug for OSX: changed SirinesCall/tools/tileconv/macosx to SirinesCall/tools/tileconv/osx
   - fixed install bug for Linux by renaming the directory SirinesCall\tools\tileconv\linux to (...)unix
   - Mod won't install on Steam/GOG SoD if modmerge didn't run (Linux / OSX).
   - removing of doubled setup-tras
   - fixed crashing Lighthouse Area in BG:EE and EET for installed component "Extended Lighthouse Area"
   - g3_bgee_cpmvars.tpa corrected (Post dialogue Dynaheir, Jaheira - not important for this mod)
   - Update to WeiDU v243
