Show Summary

Kevin O'Connor, Tom Silva, Richard Trethewey, and Roger Cook take on some pretty big projects on This Old House, which means they can only work on one or two projects a year. Homeowners have many home-improvement questions for them on smaller projects. Hosted by Kevin O'Connor, Ask This Old House addresses these problems and answers viewers' questions from a renovated New England barn loft. And they make house calls.

  • Old wood Door

    you had an episode on how to repair old wood doors that were coming apart at the joints using a drill & drill bit guide. where can I find the drill bit guide? Thanks & we love your show!!
  • plumming a tub

    you are my favourite show
  • Not Comedians

    Your actors are skilled craftsmen not comedians. The segment "What is it" is idiotic, stupid and embarrassing.

    I appreciate finding out what the object really is but find the attempt at humor by the actors to be un-funny, moronic and a complete waste of time.

    Your writers should stick to "home improvements" and leave the humor to late night comedians.

    That's my opinion anyway !!

  • Safety and Life Lessons...

    I really enjoy watching your show. It really motivates me (I mean the wife)to get me off my Duff and to work on my "Honey Do" list....Gee uuhh...thanks!....

    Anyway, your back-up sump-pump show was great. I have replace at least 10 or more myself. Mostly in the greasepits of several 10 Minute Lube shops. Nasty, messy, work when you add in all the oil and gunk.....Which brings me to my point, please make sure you have your people, homeowners/workers wear proper safety glasses, ear protection (gloves and clothing). It drives me Nutt's, when I see people on your show and others, using power tools, striking metal on metal and breaking down chimmney's and doing other demolition work without the proper protection.

    Life lessons: My Brother is deft as a door-nail from years of working in a heavey machinery factory without proper ear protection. Personaly, while waiting to have a few fingers re-attached long (or short)story..... I will never forget the guy laying in the next bed at the ER with a 16d nail sticking out his eye!

  • I can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t believe the insults the show made about mobile home owners.

    June 17, 2006\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s show, a comment about living in mobile home was made. Cannot quote but goes something like this. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"I would feel much better living in a home with studs instead of bolts and wheels.

    I live in mobile home that has been permanently affixed to the property, and by no means a low life. Because of my son\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s fathers unexpected death, I financially have no other choice. My son has been teased by other kids. Your show has created another set back. Not even God judged. Don\\\\\\\'t expect an appology but here is my info.
