Inaugural This Old House tour picks up industry sponsors

Tour will hit six cities in the United States

Lutron Electronics, Generac Power Systems, Philips Lighting Co., and Zircon recently announced they will sponsor the Meet This Old House tour, which is presented by The Home Depot. The first-ever hands-on tour is part of a year-long 25th anniversary celebration of This Old House on PBS.

From August through November, the tour will take place at Home Depot locations in Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, New York, Boston, and Atlanta. The day-long events will give audiences a chance to interact with members of the House’s home improvement team, which include host Kevin O’Conner, master carpenter Norm Abram, general contractor Tom Silva, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey, and landscape contractor Roger Cool. As part of each tour stop, a member of the crew will make a house call that will be featured in the third season of the Ask This Old House.
