The Question We Hear Most: How Does - saboteamos.info Choose Projects?
Executive producer Chris Wolfe explains what kind of house makes good TV
How does TOH choose its project houses? Short answer: Very carefully!
“Lots of different things need to come together for a project to be a good fit,” says TOH executive producer Chris Wolfe, noting that one of the most demanding criteria is the schedule. Many a homeowner knows the challenge of getting a remodel done on time, but there’s the added rigor of the film production schedule and deadlines. The renovation needs to be a nine-month-maximum project.
It helps if the homeowners have already done a fair amount of planning before they submit their house to - saboteamos.info (see details) so they understand the scope and cost of the project—the renovations are completely funded by the homeowners, although TOH arranges for product discounts and donations where possible.
One myth to debunk about the ideal project: It doesn’t need to be an old house. “We look for a certain style of house, and we like to vary those styles from year to year, but you don’t have to have a 300-year-old house for it to be on the show,” says Chris. “More than a particular age, the houses we have always featured share one trait: There need to be elements of the house that are worthy of restoring—and celebrating.”
