Welcome to TOH Discussions, the official forums of This Old House!

As you may have heard, This Old House has recently changed ownership. In moving all arms of the business over to new management, our small team has finally been able to re-surface TOH Discussions. We apologize for the delay in resurfacing this environment, and thanks for bearing with us. Here are a few updates:

- You can now find TOH Discussions in the MORE menu of the top nav throughout the site.

- We now have a Moderator who will be visiting daily. To get started, the Moderator will be reviewing the TOH-D MESSAGE BOARD TECH SUPPORT board at the bottom of this page to pull out optimization priorities as we get this thing rolling again. So, if you have question, concerns, or comments about how this environment should work and how we can revive it, now is the time to post those to the Tech Support board!

Before you make a post, a few things to keep in mind:

- If you are asking the kind of question where climate, or any other regional considerations must be made, citing your location will get you better answers.

- Use the buttons marked "New Thread" or "Post a Reply" to start or join conversations. See advanced posting instructions including how to post photos and how to get back to the main page, in the "How to post" announcements tacked to to the top of each board.

- Please be sure to keep your comments focused on the subject of the thread (and profanity-free) or else the Moderator may move or wipe out your contribution.

- We require all participants in interactive areas to accept our Terms and Conditions of Use. Starting a thread or replying to a post on TOH Discussions indicates acceptance of the agreement.


TOH Discussions is a PUBLIC community for This Old House TV viewers, magazine readers, and Web users to responsibly share information. 

TOH Discussions should never be used as a substitute for advice from a qualified professional.

The views and opinions expressed in posts are the views and opinions of the user who posted them, and not necessarily those of This Old House Ventures, LLC or our advertisers and underwriters.

OK, that's all for now! Happy posting!
