30th Anniversary Season

It’s been three decades since This Old House first gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the secrets of home renovation. In honor of its 30th anniversary, the series producers have selected two projects in the Boston area, where the show is based, for the all-new 30th season of This Old House (premiering Oct. 10 on WGBH 2/HD). 

 

newton houseNewton Centre Project

The 30th anniversary season begins with the renovation of a 1915 Dutch Colonial in the Boston suburb of Newton Centre, Mass. With a fixed budget, homeowners Bill and Gillian Pierce chose a smart and sensitive design that will add a modest 330 square feet over two floors, providing updated amenities that are respectful of the existing house's charm and character. Upgrades focus on a beautiful eat-in kitchen, a casual family room/den, an office that will double as a guest room, and a small library. With a number of areas to address and a fixed budget, the family may face tough decisions along the way in order to stay on target and the question remains whether or not they can afford to do everything on their wish list.

The other 30th anniversary project is an 1870s-era Second Empire in Roxbury, an urban neighborhood of Boston. For the Roxbury project, This Old House is partnering with the City of Boston and local non-profit Nuestra Comunidad Development Corporation to fully renovate a foreclosed and vacant property. Nuestra Comunidad, an organization devoted to revitalizing Roxbury and other underserved areas of Greater Boston, recently acquired this home from a bank. The plan is to divide the property into two separate units of affordable homes with the hope that two deserving families will move in as new owners once renovations are complete.

The Roxbury home is an architectural gem that, despite its dilapidated condition, still has much of its period detail and charm intact. The This Old House experts will work with members of the community, like general contractor David Lopes and architect Micheal Washington, to fully rehabilitate the property from top to bottom. The project is shaping up to be one of the most significant transformations ever featured on the show.

Also joining forces with This Old House on the Roxbury project is YouthBuild Boston (local affiliate of YouthBuild USA), a non-profit organization that improves the lives of young adults, using innovative programs in the building trades that teach career and life skills to prepare them for the workforce. Two members of YouthBuild Boston will work on the Roxbury project from start to finish while others from the organization will have the opportunity to assist the This Old House crew at different points throughout the process.

This Old House wins Outstanding Lifestyle Program at 2009 Daytime Emmy Awards!

 

Deb and LD hold emmy awardsThis Old House won the Emmy for Outstanding Lifestyle Program at the 36th Annual Daytime EmmyAwards ceremony held this weekend in Los Angeles. This Old House was awarded for an episode of its New Orleans project, which featured the rebuilding of a c. 1892 Creole-style shotgun home in the Lower Ninth Ward that had been damaged in Hurricane Katrina. The show traveled to New Orleans to tell this and other compelling stories about the people and organizations contributing to the city’s revival.
