Canadian Couple Spends 20 Years Building Their Own Self-Sustainable Island

By | May 4, 2015

Canadian couple Wayne Adams, 66, and Catherine King, 59, have spent 20 years building their own oasis on the coast of Vancouver Island. It all started in 1992 with just a few platforms. Twenty years later and this self-sustainable island, named “Freedom Cove”, now has a whopping 12 platforms. This includes a dance floor, an art gallery, a guest lighthouse, a studio for Adams and King, and 5 greenhouses.The island is comprised of half an acre of land used just for growing fruits and vegetables. The couple gets their water from a nearby waterfall in the summer, and from rainwater in the winter. This floating settlement is nothing short of paradise. Check the pictures below and be prepared to be amazed!
