The Home of the Brick is 47-minutes long Documentary featuring beginning of the conceptual stage to its end. An Imaginative documentary.

4. Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things

Minimalism is more about a lifestyle where the whole concept of the show is "Less is More".

The movie is 1hour and 18 minutes long that focus on the life of two people who rejects the American dream life and finding happiness in lesser things.

The show features Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus.

5. Amazing Interiors

Amazing Interiors focuses on homes with interiors that are unusual, those we haven't seen before. The show's initial season of 12 episodes was released on Netflix.

The show's premise revolves around finding and showcasing homes that, despite their normal exterior look, have distinctive, custom interiors.

The show usually shows homes that double as part-time museums, rooms wherever the house owners don't actively live, spaces like the basements, garages, a bunker and a backyard.

6. Big Dreams, Small Spaces

The Documentary consist of 3 seasons featuring Monty Don.

"Horticulturist Monty Don works with amateur gardeners to help them create the garden of their dreams."

Homeowners renovate their home gardens or allotments with the help of top British gardener Monty Don.

The show showcases many different types of gardens, different styles, and different budgets. Monty Don offers expert advice and provides loads of information on how to plant and tend a garden.

7. Tiny House Nation

"Tiny House Nation takes renovation experts John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin across America to help design and construct tiny dream homes in spaces under 500 square feet. "

This show is inspiring and very fun to watch with real people and real stories. The results are often amazing!

Remove the human-touch of a home, and you got nothing by an empty shell. This show really captured the importance of the human being, human needs and human wants.

8. Dream Big: Engineering Our World

"From the Great Wall of China and the world's tallest buildings to underwater robots, solar cars and smart, sustainable cities, DREAM BIG celebrates the human ingenuity behind engineering marvels."

This film, which is a 42 minutes long documentary, is really informational and the camera shots are amazing. The only drawback is that it gets a bit boring after a while. There is so much information that isn't all that interesting.

This documentary would really appeal to those interested in architecture and engineering.

9. Grand Designs

"Kevin McCloud follows people as they build their dream house, often focusing on modern design, energy efficiency, maximizing space and views."

The Documentary has 2 seasons and a very good program in which it follows people building their dream houses and all the dilemmas that come with it.

I must admit a lot of the designs are very modern, quite impractical - definitely not my cup of tea, but it's a great show but I wonder why anyone would want to live in that sort of house. That's why it's nice to see people's creative sides work, see what other people like, see people's dreams unfold before your eyes.

The presenter is very good - he actually writes it himself, which is definitely a credit to him! All in all, a great show, very entertaining!

10. Secrets of Great British Castles

Historian Dan Jones explores the millennium of history behind six of Great Britain's most famous castles.

This show is not dense with information; however, it also doesn't come across as fluff. There are actors reenacting historical events and people, many of whom are in multiple episodes.

Wasn't sure what to expect As I have not really watched This kind of tv show before But it is a fun watch with some breathtaking views of castles and the surrounding areas.
