My boyfriend would like some recommendations for good, detailed home renovation shows.

I've looked at previous questions and could only find one recommendation, Holmes on Homes, which we'll look up.
Boyfriend likes to learn about the details of construction processes. The DIY portions of the Australian show, Better Homes & Gardens, are an example of what he likes. I think there might be an American version of that show (?) which we'll also look into.
He doesn't mind if the show is in English, it can be about whole house renovations or just focus on particular rooms/projects. Can be contest-based or more documentary-style. The main point is he likes it when the presenter goes into depth about the steps involved in [thing].
For myself (and I will also be watching these), I prefer shows that aren't too flashy with limitless budgets where every room ends up ultra luxe, overstuffed and generally "more is more" themed. Boyfriend doesn't care so much about that, so it's not essential, just a nice-to-have.
Thank you for your suggestions!
