I know, it sounds dumb, but check it out…

Living off of the grid doesn’t have to include sacrificing the good life, just take a look at Wayne Adams, 66, and Catherine King, 59. This awesome Canadian couple spent 20 years creating a floating masterpiece located off the coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Construction of the self-sustaining floating island paradise began in 1991. Since its completion the couple has enjoyed the good life on a completely different level. They call their home “Freedom Cove,” and enjoy all kinds of cool amenities like an art gallery, dance floor, guest lighthouse, 5 greenhouses and a studio where the couple lives.

I wouldn’t want this for me, but this really is something special. I mean, THIS is how you’d ride out the zombie apocalypse.

Dibs!
