This Family in B.C. Has Been Living Completely Off the Grid on a Floating Home for 20 Years

This is what living off the grid looks like.

For 20 years, Wayne Adams and Catherine King have been living on a completely self-sustainable, 12-pad floating home half an hour off the coast of Tofino, British Columbia. 

Welcome to MTV Cribs for the eco generation.

Solar panels and photovoltaic energy generators power the mini village, while fruits and veggies grow in several greenhouses year-round. The pair also work on-site, crafting carvings and candles that are sold locally and generate enough income to support them and their two children. 

But we’ll stop there with the details – Wayne and Catherine would rather tell you about their life of self-sufficiency themselves. Tours and kayak tours to the property are available from Vancouver Island, surely an inspirational journey and great idea for a first date.

And on top of all that, it’s quite the work of art.
