  • (bright music)

  • - [Wayne] Thank you very much.

  • (Catherine laughs)

  • - I'm Catherine, and this is my husband Wayne.

  • - I'm Wayne, and welcome to Freedom Cove.

  • We live in a secluded cove.

  • The only options we have to get here is by water.

  • There are no road accesses.

  • The water is our highway.

  • - [Catherine] Everything that you see here

  • in our home is floating.

  • We are tied to shore with lines.

  • We are not anchored.

  • We have our main living house,

  • we have the dance floor, the lighthouse building,

  • four greenhouses.

  • As I started to grow the garden and make it larger,

  • then we had to have more space for that garden.

  • - Everything's done with a handsaw and hammer.

  • No power tools.

  • I know every board and nail by name.

  • It's about 500 tons.

  • A million pounds that I'm floating.

  • I've been building tree forts since I was seven.

  • And I said, "Well, Dad,

  • "I'm putting a tree fort in the ocean."

  • No, when I go to town I get landsick.

  • - Mm-hmm.

  • - The thing about living in Clayoquot Sound

  • on the west coast of Vancouver Island is

  • it's the richest biomass on Earth,

  • so the opportunity to fish for dinner is big.

  • I just get in my canoe and paddle out,

  • in 10 minutes I can catch a fish.

  • But when it's windy and too rough out there,

  • I can lay on the couch and fish out of the house.

  • I was hoping to make a lot more money as an artist,

  • so subsistence living was our only opportunity

  • to have anything as artists.

  • We could never buy real estate,

  • so we had to make our own.

  • It was a great opportunity

  • to actually move away from the city,

  • to see if we could prosper out here.

  • Now 24 years later, we're still doing it.

  • - I can't imagine living any other way.

  • I feel completely fulfilled.

  • - (laughs) That's good, hon.

  • (Catherine laughs)

  • That's really nice.

  • I'm working on it.

  • (bright music)
