Wayne Adams, 66, and Catherine King, 59, were just not going to make do with what the world has to offer for what they earn. They realized early that they wouldn’t be able to afford any good real estate options that would satisfy them. So, instead they set out to build something unique and very inspired on their own. The result is an amazing floating house which has 12 connected sections that house four greenhouses, the living quarters, a kitchen, a workshop, an art gallery, a lighthouse and a beautiful open air dance floor.
Named Freedom Cove by the couple, it weights about 500 tons, that’s a million pounds, and everything floats on the surface of the water. The house is tethered to the shore with lines instead of anchoring at the bottom of the lake. It is also very secluded with no road access and the only way to get there is by boat.
It took them 20 years to build everything by themselves and they are still thinking of making more improvements. While they are not working on their home, they earn a living through their art. Adams is a wood carver and King is a writer, painter, dancer and musician.
