Man Transforms His House Into Harry Potter Themed “Blackburn Manor”

Wyatt Otero December 21, 2016 December 21st, 2016

A man from Utah County has officially cosplayed his entire home.

That is, he turned the whole building into what he’s calling “Blackburn Manor,” an ode to the Harry Potter universe in more ways than one. Every room in the house is imagined as a different themed classroom that one might find while attending Hogwartz.

“I have created an imaginative, immersive experience for Harry Potter fans,” said the creator, Benjamin Lee-Roche.

This is a level of fan-dedication you aren’t likely to see anywhere else. He doesn’t just dress the part, he quite literally lives it.

But of course, if you’re gonna spend this much money and time transforming your life, you may as well make a buck or two while you’re at it. Though he keeps a day job, he hopes to turn the house into a career one day.

“People always say do what you love,” he said. “If you can find a way to make a living doing what you love, I think that’s the sweet spot.”

You can attend classes, get room and board, or just come by for a glass of Butterscotch Beer and a wand lesson. Either way, it’s sure to be a great time for any true fan of the franchise.

“Just for the literalist out there,” he said. “This is for entertainment primarily, and imagination.”
