Wayne Adams and Catherine King live on a self-sustaining floating home off the west coast of British Columbia.

Pushed out of the housing market, Wayne and Catherine built their own floating home in Clayoquot Sound, B.C. They have lived there since 1991, surviving on their own.

“Our life is art,” Catherine said. “[The home] is a big art installation to be walked through.”

They know their way of life — floating on the ocean surrounded by wilderness, gathering and growing their own food for survival — isn’t for everyone. They understand why some people dismiss their way of life. “You have to work hard to do it,” Catherine said. “You have to want to do it. It’s a choice and I embrace that.”
