Programme 3: Castleknock

Irene and Anthony Zambra live with their four children in Castleknock. They bought their semi-detached home 11 years ago. It came with an extension which the Zambras use as a kitchen and dining area. They are a close family who hang out in this room a lot, they eat breakfast, lunch and dinner there and the kids do their homework there. But it's a dark, dismal, north facing extension which isn't insulated, so it's cold, even during the summer!

The Zambras have never worked with an architect before, so they have high hopes that Dermot can turn their home around for their budget of fifty thousand euro.

Tune in to find out if Dermot and Irene can work together!
