Off the Grid on a Homemade Island from Great Big Story on Vimeo.

Plenty of us live without a car, but most people don’t do it because they’re living off the grid on a homemade island. Artists Catherine King and Wayne Adams live on a man made island that floats off the coast of Vancouver Island, 45-minutes outside of the nearest town. The island fortress includes everything from multiple greenhouses and a dance floor to a working stove and a spot to fish from the couch. Who wants to help us build our own island?
