Bungalow Bliss by Jack Fitzsimons was the best-known book, but there were other planbooks in Ireland during the 1970s. The Irish Bungalow Book by Ted McCarthy, and published by Mercier Press, Cork, circa 1979 displays a good selection of the standard Irish house designs from the period. Essentially designed as self-build projects, these books did much to take architects away from the provision of the average home – it becoming the realm of builder-contractors. In later years Roadstone got in on the act, with a small book of architect-designed homes, using their building materials of course, which were more elaborate than the endless variations of the plan books.
