Islands in the Stream

Exploring a Massive Homemade Houseboat in Vancouver
Posted by Gestalten—10/2017

The coast of Vancouver Island is lush with waterways, evergreen trees, and natural islands home to a whole cast of critters and characters. For artists Catherine King and Wayne Adams, the ample lakes offered a place to lay down roots and live off the land—or, perhaps, the water. The couple spent decades building a man-made island tethered to the shore: A houseboat supreme outfitted with gardens, fishing ports, and plenty of space to sit back and relax. Peer into their lives in this video by Great Big Story, or dive deeper in our new book Rock the Boat. The compendium showcases floating hotels, cozy house boats, and the people who live their life afloat.
