When "This Old House" premieres in January, it will a first in its 30 seasons to tackle a home in Los Angeles. Not only that, it will be their first Spanish Colonial Revival project. "Southern California is rich in architectural history, but much different than the New England homes we normally feature on the show," said host Kevin O'Connor. "We are looking forward to sharing this and many other amazing aspects of the area with our viewers."

The news is especially exciting to DIY home improvement blogger Timothy Dahl (LAist Interview), who said on his blog, Charles and Hudson, the show "will explore the architectural diversity of the Los Angeles area and include side trips to renovations in process that include the Hollyhock House and the preservation of Richard Neutra's home."

"This Old House" premieres on PBS on January 27th.
