Last night on Room to Improve, Dermot Bannon travelled to the outskirts of Fermoy in Cork to transform a 170-year-old mansion.
Susie and Dave bought their dream home nine years ago but the three-storey property was beginning to show signs of aging and the couple wanted to extend and upgrade to create the ultimate family home.
