The canadian couple Wayne Adams, 66, and Catherine King, 59 spent 20 years creating a floating masterpiece located off the coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Construction of the self-sustaining floating island paradise began in 1991. Since its completion the couple has enjoyed the good life on a completely different level. They call their home “Freedom Cove,” and enjoy all kinds of cool amenities like an art gallery, dance floor, guest lighthouse, 5 greenhouses and a studio where the couple lives. They doesn’t have a fridge or freezer but they still eat very well. With so many greenhouses and half an acre of land to grow crops the couple is able to grow and fish for all of their food. In the summer they get their water from a waterfall in the area, and in the winter they collect rainwater. The vibrantly colored turquoise and magenta buildings stand out amongst the lush green foliage and blue pristine waters. While Freedom Cove has everything anyone could ever want it is completely off the grid, as well as off the land.

Here are some pictures of the place:
