In 1991, Wayne Adams and Catherine King began building their floating, off-grid island off the coast of British Columbia. The work in progress is known as "Freedom Cove" and consists of 5 greenhouses, as well as a dance space, an art gallery and a lighthouse.
It comes with half an acre of land for growing edible crops and the couple fishes in the river. Drinking water is obtained, both through a nearby waterfall and rainwater collection.
The island was originally powered by 12 solar panels, but when the panels broke down they switched to a Honda generator, which produces about 3,000 Watts of power. They have plans to fix the solar system.
This place is awesome
