A woman who decided to live in a derelict shed at the furthest point of Cornwall to escape what she calls the "housing crisis" says she has learned the true value of having somewhere to live.
Catrina Davies decided she needed to break the cycle of sharing houses with strangers and struggling to pay rent - so she took extreme measures.
Now she has written a highly acclaimed book explaining why we all need to think again about our relationship with where we live.
Catrina says she remembers walking around Bristol "desperately warning to find somewhere".
Feeling an overwhelming need to return to her Cornish roots, Catrina remembered a derelict shed which her dad used to use as an office. There was no electricity, no toilets and the garden was overgrown.
It was only meant to be temporary - but seven years on, the shed has been transformed into a cosy living space.
She says the discussion around housing needs to be more "emotional".
The average house price in Cornwall is around £230,000 - more than 12 times the average salary. Catrina believes her struggles with anxiety and depression were heightened by her housing worries.
