A Couple Built Their Own Floating Island Accommodations, But That’s Not Even The Best Part


A Canadian couple have wildlife for neighbors and they are more than happy with those accommodations. Wayne Adams, 66, and Catherine King, 59, have lived on a floating home creating a sustainable lifestyle since 1992 in Cypress Bay, British Columbia.

Their home aptly called “Freedom Cove” is part of 12 floating platforms for various uses such as a guest lighthouse, five greenhouses, a dance floor, a studio and even an art gallery. The couple does not own a refrigerator, instead their meals come from the food grown in the greenhouses and whatever the catch of the day is from the ocean.

The drinking water is collected from a waterfall in the summer and rainwater in the winter. Adams and King used to have the structures powered by solar panels that broke down, forcing them to use a generator.

The couple has no interest in going back to a more modern lifestyle. King says, “this is how I will live for the rest of my life.”
