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
