HGTVâ€™s new show â€œreZONED,â€ which is currently airing on Sunday nights, is looking for homeowners that had the vision and creativity to convert a non-residence into a residence. ONLY HOMEOWNERS THAT WERE INVOLVED IN THE ORIGINAL CONVERSION WILL BE CONSIDERED. Previous episodes have featured homes that were once boathouses, firehouses, banks, drug stores, silos or anything else you can imagine.
Have you seen, heard of or know someone or some property that might be a good candidate for our show? Let us know! Our research team would greatly appreciate any leads or contacts you may have.
Ideal candidates will include the following:
* Remarkable Transformations: We’re looking for interesting and inspiring transformations that are COMPLETE or nearly completed. It is important that some elements from the original purpose remain or are incorporated. For example, one show featured a church that was transformed into a single family home complete with furniture constructed from the original pews.
* Enthusiastic Homeowners: Homeowners should be passionate about their home and the possibility of sharing it with our audience. We focus on their PERSONAL stories of design, renovation and life in the new home.
* Before Photos, Videos or Documents: Because the renovations we feature are complete, we would like to show the building before and hopefully during the transformation. Home videos, archival photos, simple snap shots and supporting documents are all welcome.
Our goal for this series it to tell the story of the building, the renovation, the homeowner and how they are all related.

4. Small Space, Big Style
The new HGTV series showcases some of the smallest and most stylish homes across the US and Canada. If you or someone you know has a fabulous pad with lots of ingenuity, multifunctional ideas or just great color and design, we’d love to hear about it.
We’re looking for ANY type of living spaceâ€”homes, apartments, condos, lofts, bungalows, yurts, yachts, dorm rooms and houseboatsâ€”but they must be under 1,000 square feet! The living spaces must have a unique and/or interesting design style and should creatively make the most of the limited space. The space must be within a one-hour drive of a major metropolitan area.
*Note: This is NOT a makeover show. All spaces must be small, stylish and complete.
