Katie Price wants Harvey to have his own little haven right next to hers and has shared her plans to build him a mini home on the grounds of her so-called Mucky Mansion
Katie Price has big plans for Harvey’s very own home.
The mum-of-five has revealed that she’s planning to build Harvey his very own mini house on the grounds of her so-called Mucky Mansion in Horsham.
It means that while Harvey will have his own purpose-built house – that he won’t be able to smash up – he won’t be too far from his mum either.
Katie, 43, shared her elaborate plans for her 19-year-old son, who has a number of disabilities including partial blindness, autism and Prader-Willi Syndrome, in her new book Katie Price : Harvey and Me, which is being published by Mirror Books.
The former glamour model penned: “I’m currently in the middle of moving back to my house in Horsham – also known as the ‘Mucky Mansion’, thanks to the press.
“I’m having it all done up, and I’m also building Harvey his own place next to the house. He can’t have a bedroom in the house because he just smashes it up. I have to think of his own safety and everyone else’s safety.
“So, he’s going to have his own little safe haven. I’m basically designing it so that it’s perfect for an adult with autism. He’ll have padded walls again like he did when he was younger, he’ll have his own safe kitchen and a huge water room with a big shower.
“It just needs to be somewhere that he can’t smash up and somewhere that is easy to clean down. Obviously, he’s at college, but it will be for whenever he comes home.”
Harvey has gone off to residential college National Star and he continues to make his mum proud every day.
While she’s openly admitted that looking after him can be challenging, she says that the teenager has already achieved so much more than she ever thought he would.
She continued in her book: “I know I’m biased, but Harvey really is so special. He amazes me every day. He’s done more things than I could ever have imagined. In fact, he’s done more things than most able 19-year-olds have done.
“We’re fighting for a law in his name, he’s an ambassador for the UK’s leading learning disability charity, Mencap, he’s got his own BBC documentary Harvey And Me , and we’re currently filming the second instalment, What Harvey Did Next .
“He was even nominated for a National Television Award – more on that later – and he was shortlisted for Celebrity Of The Year at the National Diversity Awards for his charity work. Not bad, eh?!”
