Everyone felt sorry for this couple's disastrous house on Room to Improve last night
What lurks beneath.

LAST NIGHT’S ROOM to Improve focused on a lovely house in Maynooth – with a dark secret hiding behind the walls.

Yes, it was that dramatic.

It was Sinéad and George’s dream home

And Dermot thought it looked class when he arrived in the car

room2 RTÉ RTÉ

But when he walked in the front door, the first thing he saw was a shower in the… hall

It might look nice on the outside, but Dermot quickly finds out that “none of the rooms really work” when he gets in

Next, they head on into the bedroom

room5 RTE RTE

But they saved the best until last with this tour, as they head into the final room – to discover some serious wet rot

room6 RTE RTE

Which is the “worst thing that could happen to a house”

room7 RTE RTE

^that face

This had horror film written all over it

But there was still hope

Turns out, a serious chunk of the budget is going to go on just fixing the place up

room8 RTE RTE

There were worries that they might have to just wrap this one up early

The house is “fundamentally compromised” ffs

room9 RTÉ RTÉ

There was one line that kept popping up

Fears of mould spread across the country

room10 RTE RTE

This was quickly turning into one of the all-time Room to Improve disasters

“It’s like it’s been hit bu a cruise missile” says the builder

room11 RTÉ RTÉ

Sinead and George were staying seriously calm

They had to replace the whole damn roof

Things weren’t looking great

room12 RTE RTE

Dermot was throwing out some unique measurements

room13 RTE RTE

And using Hollywood as inspiration

The pair of them struggled on the decision about the colour of the window frames


And a few quick edits later, we suddenly had the house finished

room14 RTÉ RTÉ

But everyone was just glad it was over

room15 RTÉ RTÉ

And the response to the completed job was near universal approval

dermot RTÉ RTÉ

Only gorgeous

George’s white cardigan was the final talking point

We’re just surprised he settled on a colour in the end

What a journey that was.
