Floating off the coast of Vancouver Island is Wayne Adams and Catherine King’s own personal piece of paradise

The couple left the city behind to literally build the home of their dreams on the sea. Now, 29 years later, they wouldn’t trade their life on “Freedom Cove” for anything!



Catherine and Wayne are both artists. The former is a dancer who studies homeopathy, while the latter is a carver.

In the early 1990s, they were living in a Tofino apartment, but they wanted something to call their own. So they began giving away their possessions and gathering recycled or salvaged materials to build themselves a one-of-a-kind compound that can only be reached by water.



“I was hoping to make a lot more money as an artist,” Wayne said. “We could never buy real estate, so we had to make our own.”

As for Catherine, she added, “I had lived in the big city, I knew what that was like. I really needed the peace of the wilderness.”



Wayne grew up building tree forts, and he put his expertise to good use by creating a floating platform that could support multiple buildings. He tethered their homemade island to the shore and just kept adding on.

These days, Freedom Cove weighs 1 million pounds and includes a house, dance floor, art gallery, candle factory, and solar panels. It also has a floating tank for waste management.



While the pair constantly works to maintain and improve their living space, they’ve never been happier!

Not to mention, they’ve become so self-sufficient that they don’t have to leave the island for much of anything. They grow their own food in four greenhouses…

…and Wayne catches their dinner in a canoe — or inside their home! They set up a plexiglass opening in their living room, where Wayne can fish to his heart’s content. Talk about living the dream!



It’s amazing what people can do when they’re fueled by their passions! May these two enjoy their days of peace at their ocean haven!
