"This Old House" Looks for Los Angeles Home
PBS staple "This Old House" is looking to renovate a Los Angeles-area home for the first time in the show's history.
According to the show, it's looking for a "dynamic" family in Los Angeles County "with a classic old house in need of help, with plenty of things to save and update."
There are a few catches: A large chunk -- but not the entire house -- must be renovated, and the job has to be completed within five or six months. Construction should potentially begin as early as August 2010 and finish by January 2011, allowing for a 2011 air date.
What's more, the project "should already be underway with architectural plans and/or have the ability to be 'fast-tracked' to the building phase."
One more note: Tenovations are completely funded by the homeowners and not by 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."
