Could Your House Be on TOH TV?
This Old House television is always searching for its next renovation. Could your house be The One?
What We're Looking For:
Want to give your old house a televised facelift? The This Old House TV crew is seeking engaging homeowners with old houses in need of renovation, with plenty of features to save and update. From downtown Boston lofts, to ornate Victorians in the suburbs, the series is accepting proposals for all housing types, styles and neighborhoods. Whether you are just in the dreaming phase, or well along with design, we want to hear from you!
Because the show only follows two to three projects a year, we are limited in what we can cover. At least one of these projects is in the Greater Boston area and another is located in the Providence, RI area. We also look for projects located in mild climates where outdoor work may be undertaken during the winter months. Often we choose the geographic location first and then consider proposals in that area.
2019 Greater Boston Search Timeline:
For 2019, This Old House will consider proposals through December 31, 2018. The project should be ready to break ground in early Spring 2019. In order to meet the show's broadcast schedule, work must conclude by November 2019 in most cases. The selected projects will be featured on multiple This Old House episodes airing on PBS, premiering in the 2019/20 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 [email protected] 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, 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.
