We Have Occasionally Seen Advertisements,

where you can buy your own private island,

 but here is another take on that idea, why not build your own island? that is what artists Catherine King and Wayne Adams decided to do some 25 years ago,

 currently moored off the coast of Vancouver Island about 45 minutes by boat to the nearest town, their sprawling floating house is called called 'Freedom Cove' the completely mobile island is made of 12 tethered sections that incorporates four greenhouses, living quarters, a kitchen, workshop, art gallery, a lighthouse and even a dance floor, Adams estimates the structure weighs in around 500 tons,

for a look around here is the video, and for a fuller look here is an article about the island, what a neat if somewhat complicated way to live on your own island.
