Family Lives Off The Grid On This Self-Sustaining, Floating Farm

Apr 29, 2015 By Christi Mulligan

In 1992, a Canadian couple decided to go off the grid. A pair of artists, they envisioned a floating wonderland that was completely eco-friendly and self-sustaining. Today, Wayne Adams, Catherine King and their two children live in their colorful abode that they have named Freedom Cove.

Their floating island is just about a half-hour from Tofino, British Columbia, by boat. Made completely from recycled materials, their fortress includes 12 large platforms that are connected via carefully constructed metal and planks of wood.

They grow their own crops in their greenhouses and live completely off of freshwater that is either collected from rainwater or local, fresh sources. All electricity is brought in through their solar panels, and the family continues to live in their ever-evolving structure.
