The Right Way to Rehab

Find an OHC Realtor


Ready to tackle rehab projects at home? Looking for a pro with old home experience? We’ve gathered resources from partner organizations and PAM supporters (no need to reinvent the wheel!) that will help guide your project. This is not a comprehensive collection, and PAM does not necessarily endorse any of the individuals or businesses listed below. We are eager to connect homeowners, DIYers, and people interested in fixing up vintage properties with preservation-minded experts and organizations.
