Could Your House Be on TOH TV?
What We're Looking For:
Are you planning a major home renovation? This Old House is seeking homeowners who are ready to restore and remodel their house. Does your house have features that need saving or updating? From urban lofts, to Greek Revival farmhouses in the country, to Colonials in the suburbs, the series is accepting proposals for all housing types, styles and neighborhoods. We want to hear from you!
Because the show only works on two projects a year, we are limited in what we can cover. At least one of these projects, is in the Greater Boston area, so that the crew can stay close to home for a significant part of the season.
For 2016, This Old House will consider proposals from October 12 through December 31, 2015. The project should be ready to break ground in early Spring 2016. In order to meet the show's broadcast schedule, work should conclude by November 2016. The selected projects will be featured on multiple This Old House episodes airing on PBS, premiering in the 2016/17 season.
What to Submit:
Brief description of the renovation project—be sure to also include house style, location and year built
Low-res digital pictures of the home's interior and exterior
Any architectural plans or schematics if they exists
Brief description of the current homeowners
Low-res digital pictures of the homeowners
How much you plan to spend
When you need to start and conclude the project
How to Submit:
Please e-mail proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit them via regular mail to: This Old House Project Proposals, P.O. Box 130, Concord, Massachusetts 01742. Select homeowners will be contacted by show producers for further interviews. Due to the volume of proposals received, The This Old House will not be able to respond personally to everyone or return submitted materials.
The renovations are completely funded by the homeowners and not This Old House, though the show coordinates product discounts and donations where possible. All donated items are considered gifts, on which the homeowners pay taxes.
