In 1992 a couple who lived on the coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia built together a floating home. This original island was made by Wayne Adams, 66 and his wife Catherine King, 59. They named it Freedom Cove and had been living there together ever since. The couple have been growing food and fishing on the island. So this is a perfect example of how amazing life off the grid can be.
The home is consisted of 12 floating platforms with a dance floor, 5 greenhouses, an art gallery, a guest lighthouse and a studio for the couple. There is also half an acre of gardening land with growing crops. Adams and King provide water from a waterfall during the summer and from rainwater in wintertime.
They are usually very busy working on their sustainable lifestyle. And during the summer they welcome visitors who like to experience their authentic and sustainable lifestyle. Adams is a carver who makes sculptures curved out of wood and King is a painter, writer, musician and dancer.
