The Canadian Couple Who Spent 20 Years Building Their Floating Home

To simply call this a ‘home’ is an understatement. It’s more of a floating island paradise. It all started with the dream of artists Catherine King and Wayne Adams to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and live in their own secluded paradise. More than twenty years later, they say they still aren’t finished as their home and amenities have evolved.

Amidst the beautiful wilderness of Clayoquot Sound near Tofino, British Columbia, the two decided to name their island “Freedom Cove.” Their floating island home holds greenhouses, a lighthouse, and even an art gallery. Everything has been decorated with recycled materials and sport stunningly bright colors. Energy for appliances come from a line of solar panels. It’s quite the impressive wilderness abode!
