Dermot Bannon has opened up about ‘running out of money’ following extensive renovations to his family home last year.
Our favourite architect welcomed the Room to Improve cameras into his home to showcase his own stunning house transformation.
Due to the current global circumstances, Room to Improve sadly will not return to our screens this year.
However, Dermot Bannon fans will still be able to get their fix as the architect returns with a new series of Incredible Homes this weekend.
Dermot has now revealed that he is dying to get back to work as he has run out of money following his home renovations.
He told the RTE Guide that seeing his unfinished garden gave him the push he needed to get back in action.
He explained: ‘I think I was getting a little bit worn out from it all and lockdown just gave me the kick up the backside so I’m looking forward to it this year.
‘I had time to sit and enjoy [the house] and it was great during the summer, the garden was amazing.
‘We had no money left, so we didn’t get any of the other planned features in the garden done. That’s why I need to go back to work.’
Dermot Bannon also revealed that the lockdown was a blessing as he got to spend time in this new home with his wife and three children.
He added: ‘If it hadn’t been for lockdown, I think I’d still be leaving the house at 7 o’clock in the morning and getting home at 8 at night and not really learning to appreciate it.’
While Dermot Bannon’s Incredible Homes will return this weekend, the architect previously warned that it will be a long time before Room to Improve returns to our screens.
He told Ray D’Arcy that while they are back filming, the show is unlikely to return until Autumn 2021.
