Do you have an upcoming major home renovation? Are there features in your home that need saving or updating? If so, you may want to consider submitting your project to the producers of This Old House. The producers of the popular PBS series are looking for homeowners who live in the Greater Boston area including Cape Cod and the Islands. All styles of homes from lofts to Colonials and beyond will be considered.

Proposals are being accepted now through December 31, 2015. The project should be ready for groundbreaking in early spring 2016. Work must be concluded by November 2016 to adhere to the show's production schedule.

All renovations will be done at the expense of the homeowners, not This Old House. The show does, however coordinate product discounts and donations if possible. Homeowners are required to pay taxes on donated items which are considered gifts, according to the show's producers.

Selected projects will be featured in several episodes of This Old House during the 2016/17 season.

Proposals may be submitted by email to [email protected] or by mail to This Old House Project Proposals, PO Box 130, Concord, MA 01742. Proposals should include a brief description of the project, the house style, location and year it was built, low-resolution pictures of the interior and exterior, architectural plans or schematics, a brief description of the homeowners, low-resolution pictures of the homeowners, how much you plan to spend and when you need to start and conclude the renovation.

Some homeowners will be contacted by the producers for interviews. The producers will not be able to contact everyone who submits a proposal and images and documents will not be returned.

Complete information about proposing a project is available on the This Old House website here.
