This Couple Spent Decades Building Their Own Self-Sustaining Island

(Before It's News)

Talk about extreme green. Artists Wayne Adams and Catherine King spend their days completely immersed in nature – the Canadian couple lives off-the-grid on a floating sustainable island appropriately named Freedom Cove.

King and Adams say that the Cove, cast on Cypress Bay in Tofino, British Columbia, has allowed them to interact with nature without interfering in it.

Their eco-paradise features greenhouses, an art gallery and a lighthouse tower – all of which are fashioned from recycled materials and painted bright shades of pinks and purples. The couple grows their own food on the expansive gardens that weave through the property and harnesses energy from an array of solar panels.

“We live our life in a manner that, we hope, adds to the health of the environment,” explains King. “We do our best to live conscientiously this way every day.”

Freedom Cove is an escape more than 20 years in the making, and it’s not finished yet. Wayne and Catherine continue to brainstorm new pieces to add to their already spectacular puzzle.

Check out their photo archive to see how the island became the place it is today. Warning: prepare for a jaw-drop.
