A CAMBORNE man is celebrating his first year living in a converted chicken shed.

The home, also known as Roosters, was built for Simon, 29, who suffers from autism, to give him a little breathing space from the other care community members.

He is one of the 14 residents at Highdowns, run by care provider Regard, where people live in a mix of properties.

Delighted Simon said: "I like it because I can play my music as loudly as I want.

"I have my own space and like not having other people around me. I like to practise on my CD mixer in my own home."

Meanwhile the shed's former feathered occupants have been moved to a new home in a nearby barn.
