More than two decades ago, Wayne Adams and Catherine King decided to pack their bags, leave the city, and live their dreams.

The couple, who are both artists, wanted to build their home on their own a remote island completely surrounded by nature.

And at Cypress Bay in Tofino, British Columbia, the pair started building Freedom Cove— a massive, quiet haven made from salvaged and recycled materials, which were painted in bright shades of pinks and purples.

The couple began its construction in 1991

The Canadian couple grows their own food in their wide gardens, and their property receives energy from solar panels.

“We live our life in a manner that, we hope, adds to the health of the environment,” King said. “We do our best to live conscientiously this way every day.”

Although it has taken King and Adams over 20 years to create Freedom Cove, it’s not finished yet. The pair continues to ponder on new pieces to add to this remarkable island.
