During this series, viewers will get a true look at the thicket of regulatory issues, construction challenges, and financial headaches that have confronted thousands of families whose homes were hard-hit during the 2012 hurricane.

On the next season of "This Old House," the show will go to the coast of New Jersey, where Superstorm Sandy hit hardest in October of 2012. The first eight episodes of the season will follow three houses that were severely damaged during the storm—one dating from the 1880s and two that were built in the mid-20th century—as they undergo extensive rebuilding before the next hurricane season comes around.

Jack A. Purvis, President of the NJ AIA and Jersey Shore Architect for over 25 years, will be featured in the Jersey Shore eight episode series. While Jack A. Purvis is based in Allenwood, NJ, he is no stranger to the devastation the Jersey Shore has faced in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

"The devastation that these families have faced in the shore towns of New Jersey is unimaginable," said Purvis. "During this series, viewers will get a true look at the thicket of regulatory issues, construction challenges, and financial headaches that have confronted thousands of families whose homes were hard-hit during the 2012 hurricane. I am proud to be a part of the re-building process that will take place on this special series of 'This Old House."

The Emmy Award-winning home improvement series typically focuses on start-to-finish reservations, making these episodes much different from previous seasons. The three homes which will be featured are located in Bay Head, Point Pleasant, and Manasquan. Each took in several feet of water from the storm and began rebuilding just months after Sandy hit.
