Couple Spends 24 Years Building A Floating Home In Canada With No Power Tools

For anyone who has ever dreamt of going off the grid, this floating home in the Canadian wilderness may truly be the stuff of dreams.

Artists Catherine King and Wayne Adams have been building the home for 24 years, and what they’ve created is a masterpiece of colors and imagination.

Viewed from above, fuschia and and teal tones make the home pop out from its surroundings; inside, it’s a peaceful home with a rustic kitchen and greenish-blue toned walls.

Weighing in at a whopping 500 tons, the home is a complex of sorts. It features amain living house, a dance floor, a lighthouse, and four greenhouses.

And that weight is made all the more mind-blowing when you consider that it’s not anchored down. It’s only tied to shore.

There’s no road access to the home, which is off the coast of Vancouver Island. As Adams puts it, “The water is our highway.”

When it comes to feeding themselves, the couple has no difficulty in being totally self-sustaining.

Between the crops grown in their greenhouses and the surrounding waters,in which Adams says it takes no more than 10 minutes to catch a fish on any given day, this couple has built themselves a true, isolated paradise.

For a more compact take on a similar concept, take a look at this modern floating homeand this stunning rustic houseboat with hand-built furniture.
