Meet the couple that live on a floating island (that they built!)

Meet the couple that live on a floating island (that they built!)

A couple have spent over 20 years building a self-sustainable fortress floating off the coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Wayne Adams, 66, and Catherine King, 59, began building the float together in 1992. Nicknamed the “Freedom Cove”, the place consists of 12 floating platforms which house a dance floor, an art gallery, a guest lighthouse, a studio for Adams and King, and 5 greenhouses. Adams and King also grow all their own crops on a half-acre of land, fish for food and get their water form a nearby waterfall during summer and from rainwater during winter.
