Hello ToH! I contacted you a couple years ago when we bought our house, but didn't get a response. Back then we thought this might be a fun project for your show.
We bought an old house, built in 1870, in New Hampshire. It's a big old Victorian, one of the last of its kind, in this area. It needs work--more than we thought, as it turns out.
Well since then, most of us got lead poisoned, after living here a year. My 2-year-old girl just spent a week in the hospital under chelation therapy to get the lead out of her blood. They say my 5-year-old and 3-year-old and 1-year-old are affected (me and my wife haven't been measured yet). We've had a professional abatement crew come through with emergency measures, but have just started the process of abatement--the process to make this place an actual safe place for people to live.
The State authorities have started to put funds forward to help us deal with our home. I thought maybe there could be a good conjunction of what they do and what you do, that might entice you to be interested in this project. If so, please contact me on my cell at 260-250-5788 or contact the Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention Program of New Hampshire directly (603) 271-4507.
