Now through December 31, the “This Old House” crew is on the hunt for old homes in need of renovation. Downtown lofts and brownstones, suburban Victorians, and country farmhouses are all welcome for consideration.

“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,” says a representative of the show.

The project should be ready to break ground in early spring of 2015. In order to meet the show’s broadcast schedule, work must conclude by November 2015. The selected projects will be featured on multiple “This Old House” episodes airing on PBS in the 2015-2016 season.

The renovations are funded by the homeowners, though the show coordinates product discounts and donations when possible.

Recent features from the Boston area include an 1850 Greek Revival row house in Charlestown, and a Lexington Colonial that will appear on the show in January 2015.

To submit a property, include the following:

  • A description of the home with the style, location, and year built.
  • A description of the renovation project, including the budget and a proposed timeline.
  • A description of the current homeowners.
  • Digital photos of the home’s interior and exterior, and of the current homeowners.

E-mail proposals to, or mail them to This Old House Project Proposals, P.O. Box 130, Concord, Massachusetts 01742. Select homeowners will be contacted by show producers for further interviews.
