Homesick: Why I Live in a Shed Catrina Davies


In her early thirties Catrina hits breaking point and moves home to West Cornwall.

With no money, no planning for the shed she is living in and questions on whether the dream we’ve been sold about owning our own home is worth it this is a remarkable and hard hitting tale set against the Cornish backdrop of low wages and holiday homes.

The story of a personal housing crisis and a country-wide one, grappling with class, economics, mental health and nature. It shows how housing can trap us or set us free, and what it means to feel at home.

An amazing and fascinating read – a must.
