Want to give your old house a televised facelift? You can submit your house in need of a renovation to appear on an upcoming season of This Old House. From downtown lofts, to ornate country Victorians, to bungalows 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!
This Old House features two to three projects per season, and at least one of the projects is located in the New England area. We prefer projects located in climates where outdoor work may be undertaken during the winter months, and often we choose the geographic location first and then consider proposals in that area.
Please note that the renovations are completely funded by the homeowners. This Old House coordinates product discounts and donations, where possible.
For 2021, This Old House will consider proposals through May 31, 2021. The project should be ready to break ground by early summer 2021. In order to meet the show’s broadcast schedule, work must conclude by winter 2021/22 in most cases. The selected project will be featured on multiple This Old House episodes airing on PBS, premiering in the 2021/22 season.
**Please note that due to the volume of proposals received, This Old House will not be able to respond personally to everyone.
