'This Old House' continues its search for L.A. remodel projects

Thisoldhouse Sometimes messing with a classic is a good thing. And it’s better when there’s more time to find that classic.

In a land where nips and tucks are common occurrences, it’s no wonder that PBS’ Emmy-winning series “This Old House” is searching L.A. County for a historic home in need of a face lift -- even if it took 29 seasons. For those who missed the June deadline, you’re in luck!  The entry period has been extended to July 31.

Producers are looking for a project bigger than a new kitchen but smaller than a full-scale remodel. It must be possible to complete the renovation in five or six months, with construction beginning as early as August. The “ideal project” already should have architectural plans and/or have the ability to be “fast-tracked” to the building phase. 

The final selection will be announced in mid-August. The selected project will be featured on the home improvement show in multiple episodes airing in early 2011.

Great comments to share. The house has still it's glow on. A well planned budget should be prepared in order to invest money wisely and in right direction. People should be aware as to how much they have in hand to spend. The budget will not only tell how much to spend but it would also guide as to where to cut costs or impose controls. Projectors must contact reliable architects and interior decorators to convey their designs and ideas. In order to ensure that their designs and ideas are turned into reality, professional help is necessary. These professional people must be highly competent as to deliver desired results within a limited budget.
