I've stumbled upon an interesting series in the UK. It's called "The House That $100K Built", and they followed up with a spinoff called "The $100K House: Tricks of the Trade". The first concerns full builds, the second deals with renovations.

The show primarily features architect Piers Taylor's approach to budget design. It can be pretty fun, definitely worth a viewing for architecture fans. Each show they also tour a well-designed building to demonstrate their ideas to the show's guest.

Kinda hard to find the show on US streaming services, but YouTube has a number of full episodes.... Here are some links:

Thanks, Jay. Would it be cheating to ask if you have a favorite episode ?

Here's an end-of-show montage of one I thought was very nice:

And the "Post Office" re-design on this one was good stuff:

Sadly, the YouTube selection is pretty limited. One would need to resort to other means of file sharing to see a better selection Shocked

If it's the BBC it's probably pounds ($1.22 as I write), not dollars.

The minimalist home-built (if professionally designed) addition is sweet at any price.

Obviously not the cheapest lake-side hut one could find -- but a model as to layout at least, and a design feat for the like-minded ?

Since it's BBC, it will eventually end up here on PBS.
