This Couple Has Spent 20 Years Building This Floating House, It’s Really Incredible!

Everyone wants to live far from the busy city life. At some point in life, we all have wanted to leave the society life and live on a colorful off-the-grid house, at least for once. We all have dreamt of having a house on an island, full of green trees, flowers, where no one is there to disturb us. Though everyone can’t fulfill their dream, But this couple from Canada stuck to their dream and finally made this happen.

Wayne Adams, 66, and Catherine King, 59, have started to create a completely self-sustainable float home off the coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia in 1991. It took almost 20 years for them to build the entire structure. Still, they are thinking to improve it. The floating house, named as “Freedom Cove”, is consists of 12 floating platforms that include a dance floor, an art gallery, a guest lighthouse, a studio for Adams and King, and 5 greenhouses. It weighs around 500 tons. A Boat ride for 45 minutes from the nearest town is the only way to reach there.

So, it’s time for checking the photos of Freedom Cove since it’s beginning –
