Room to Improve is back on RTÉ One every Sunday at 9:30 pm. In last night's episode, we met Robbie and Julie from Darndale who have saved for over 20 years to buy the house of their dreams – a 1940s cottage in the picturesque north Dublin suburb of Malahide.
With a budget of €180K, Dermot’s clients hoped to transform the cottage into a spacious two-storey extension but the remediation costs are so high, Dermot can only deliver a single storey.
However, with help of his brand new quantity surveyor Lisa O’Brien, Dermot redesigned the extension, reducing its cost to a €30K overrun.
Dermot joined Ryan Tubridy on The Late Late Show on Friday to talk about the tenth series of Operation Transformation and revealed everything from the key trends in interior design to his fav sleeping position!
