Build your own 70s house

Dailymail_1 You can keep your cottages and your new-build mock-Georgian homes - I want the same house now as I did as a child, a stylish early 70s number, just like Bob and Thelma's place in Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads.

Sadly, these fine examples of housebuilding excess and design daring have now been destroyed beyond belief - usually via conservatories, double glazing doors and block paving. But fear not - we've found a way of re-creating the 70s home with out an extortionate architect's fee - the Daily Mail Book Of House Plans 1972.

Yes, our latest junkshop gem is a shrine to 70s design. Picked up for less than £1, it packs in over 50 different house specifications of the day, including full floor plans, interior ideas and a number of suppliers who could make your dreams come true. Read on after the turn for a couple of interior shots from the book - and if you see a copy - buy it!
