For 2016, This Old House is considering proposals through December 31, 2015. The project should be ready to break ground in early Spring 2016. In order to meet the show’s broadcast schedule, work should conclude by November 2016. The selected projects will be featured on multiple This Old House episodes airing on PBS, premiering in the 2016/17 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
• Brief description of the current homeowners
• Low-res digital pictures of the homeowners

How to Submit:
Please e-mail proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
