    So he's spent £10,000 making his house look like this.

    It's kind of amazing.

    He originally bought the house, in Blackpool, for £80,000, after it had stood empty for nearly a decade.

    Some of the wallpaper was buried in a time capsule in the 1930s, and it cost him £100 a roll.

    The heaters and fireplaces are all from the 1930s too, and they warm the home - not central heating.

    Even the water is heated from the coal fire.

    He's bought items on eBay, and salvaged others in skips and in second hand shops.

    He cites the suites and his gramophone as his favourite items.

    The 1930s were arguably Blackpool's hayday.

    He says: "People are really interested in the house - my friends always ask if they can take pictures, they think it's really different."
