This Homemade Island Has Been an Off-Grid Self-Sufficient Home to a Couple for 27 Years

The construction includes a candle making factory and a studio.

Let's face it. We have all thought about leaving for a remote island from time to time. This couple actually did it.

In this interesting and surprising video, the couple explains how they built an off-grid self-sufficient home where they have been living for 27 years.

The island/home has four greenhouses where the couple says they can grow pretty much whatever they want. But that's not all.

They also have an art gallery not to have to pay to display their art. They have a beach where they can relax at the end of a hard day. 

A fire pit area allows for evening campfires. Two floating boat houses keep the motors in good shape.

They have a candle factory building because, of course, you can't live without your own candles at night. They even have a dance studio for exercise.

All of this is built on recycled fish farm material. The material adds extra security to the home because it lasts indefinitely. The whole construction is a testament to what people can achieve if they are dedicated enough.

Watch the video and see this impressive island/home for yourself. We promise you will not be disappointed.
