The only times I've dealt with this it was summer and once all the doors and windows were left open it left of it's own accord. Doesn't sound like an option for you though.
In this case you need to remove the food source - no food, weasel goes.
Mice traps with a few finishing nails driven through where the snap arm comes down (impales them on nails); water bucket with rod and tin/pop can on it that holds bait and revolves, dropping them into water.
Weasels seem to anecdotally be attracted to movement (trappers use bird wings above traps). Perhaps some dangling object in the trap and the trap set on an angle so weasel runs UP into it??
Make sure you leave an exit for the weasel, and be sure he is gone before completely sealing the house up - you don't want to trap it IN the house.
