Catherine King and Wayne Adams live in Clayoquot Sound, literally, thanks to their homemade floating island. The tremendous structure, which contains all of their living amenities, weighs 500 tons and was constructed by the pair by hand, primarily with a saw and a hammer.

As one might imagine, the homemade floating island is almost entirely separate from societal infrastructure. As such, the couple engage heavily in subsistence living, primarily eating the abundant fish in Clayoquot Sound. The compound also has four greenhouses and King spends time growing all the produce that the couple needs.

Though it could seem like lonely living, King and Adams are happy with it, having lived on their homemade floating island for 24 years and counting.
