'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.
