Wayne Adams and Catherine King have built this floating fortress of sustainable living just on the coast of Vancouver islands British Columbia, and it’s a perfect example of how wonderful sustainable life off the grid can be. They started building it in 1992 and have been fishing and growing their own food ever since.

They named their new home ” Freedom Cove ” it has 12 floating platforms which include a dance floor, art gallery, guest lighthouse a studio for the couple and 5 greenhouses, they have half an acre of land for growing their food and they get water from a nearby waterfall or from rainwater during the winter. This entire island is powered by 14 solar panels, but recently they switched to a generator because the panels broke down. When the couple isn’t working on their sustainable lifestyle Adams is also a carver and King is a painter, dancer, writer and musician
