- [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.
