Could your Pittsburgh area home use a do-over? Maybe it's outdated, or maybe there's a wall — or two — in need of removal.

Sibling renovators Steve and Leanne Ford , Pittsburgh natives, are looking for a home to renovate in the region as they return for a second season of "Restored by the Fords" on HGTV.

The duo find unusual old Pittsburgh homes and turn them around with striking redesigns, accompanied by good-natured brother and sister banter.

While Pittsburgh appears to have a nearly inexhaustible supply of unique homes, the structures' sometimes "good bones" often surround aging infrastructure — including issues like plumbing and electrical, the Fords say.

If your abode is in need of some serious touching up, and you like the Fords' style, you may find them modernizing and bringing your home base back to life.

The Fords enjoy working on homes that might fall into the categories of eccentric, unusual or vintage, which could describe many regional houses.

Anyone whose home is chosen must be willing to contribute financially to the project.

Minimum renovation budget is $50,000, according to the release.

Applicants must live within a 60-mile radius of Pittsburgh.

Haven't lost your nerve yet?

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING.
