THIS OLD HOUSE® FEATURES SCANDINAVIAN MODERN REDESIGN AND ACCESSIBLE IN-LAW COTTAGE REMODEL

All-New 33rd National Season Will Bring Viewers a Look at City and Country Renovations

CONCORD, Mass., (September 13, 2012) /PRNewswire/ — The Emmy® Award-winning PBS home improvement series This Old House® will feature a 19th-century Victorian-era home in the city of Cambridge, Mass., and a woodland cottage circa 1935 in rural Essex, Mass., as its latest renovation projects for the upcoming 33rd national season premiering this October 4. The locations represent a city-and -country theme and provide fresh angles that are remarkably different and even contrasting. The Cambridge Project will showcase a renovation for a young family in a bustling urban setting, while the Essex Project is a quiet country cottage that will be transformed into a universally accessible living space for aging parents.

“We have two major remodels this season, each conceived by a homeowner with a very clear vision,” says host Kevin O’Connor. “Viewers will find aspects to love about both the stylish family home in Cambridge and the accessible in-law cottage in Essex.”

The This Old House Cambridge Project, featuring 15 brand-new episodes, premieres nationally on PBS on October 4, 2012 (check www.thisoldhouse.com/tvschedule or your local listings). The Essex Project, featuring 11 episodes, premieres January 2013. Viewers can watch full new This Old House episodes Sundays at 7 p.m. after each show premieres at www.thisoldhouse.com/watchTOH.

Live, 24/7 progress of the Cambridge and Essex projects is available on thisoldhouse.com/webcams. Viewers can become fans of This Old House on Facebook or follow the show on Twitter.
