This Old House to Feature Victorian-Era Home

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 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. 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.

This Old House is produced by This Old House Productions, Inc., for This Old House Ventures, Inc., and is presented on PBS by WGBH Boston.

    What is the name of the foam board you are using in the basement of the project home.
    This is white sheets that you can foam the back of the board and nail studs to the front of the panel.
    the ends and the top of the panels are groved to be able to stack.
    I would like to know where I can purchase this product?

    thanks
