Rainwater Catchment

We have plans. Big plans. We’re going to collect runoff and use it to water the lawn, plants, and eventual garden, thus cutting down on both our water usage and our water bills.

We already have huge water barrels. Now, John is building a platform for the barrels, so that he can connect them and the water can flow down. It works better when it flows down.

The other night we went out to salvage some lumber–apparently someone didn’t need that bunk bed any more. But why let perfectly good cedar go to waste? We don’t know, either.

Sure, we could probably buy some elaborate custom-built setup. But then that abandoned bunk bed would just sit there. And who does that help?
