I believe the exposure on the lap siding is 10-3/4". Each panel was 12" with a 1-1/4" lap I believe.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to An Old Florida Bungalow Gets Brand-New Polish
The rebuilt entry side shows off some of the project's sustainable features, from deep overhangs to shade the windows from the Florida sun to fiber cement siding to barrels to catch rainwater for irrigation. In fact, renovating the house to incorporate sustainability was one of Ed and Julie's requirements.The upstairs master bedroom is a small room, just 12 feet square, with windows on three sides (you can see two of those sides here). With all those windows and the view out to the gulf, the room is like an airplane cockpit, says Julie.
Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to How to Harvest Rainwater for Your Garden
How much rainwater do I need to water my garden? Well, that depends a lot on your garden, your climate, and your watering habits. Try this test to evaluate your water needs before buying a rain tank: Take an empty gallon jug (or any larger container with gallons marked on it), go out to your garden and turn your hose on to the pressure at which you like to water your garden. Time how long it takes to fill up that gallon jug. The number of gallons divided by the number of minutes is the GPM (gallons per minute) flow rate at which you usually water. (Remember to convert seconds into minutes if you use a small container; 30 seconds equally .5 minute.)Now water your garden, as you normally would, and count how many minutes it takes you with the hose going at that same flow rate. Multiply the number of minutes by the GPM you already calculated to find the total number of gallons you use in your garden for one watering session. If you have a sprinkler system but don’t know the flow rate, you can run a similar test and add that to get your total outdoor water use. You might be shocked at the results. An average American house uses nearly 100 gallons a day just outdoors. Before purchasing the biggest rainwater tank you can find, though, try adjusting your flow rate and doing the test again. Many people don’t realize that they are actually overwatering their gardens simply because they have high water pressure. If you need help remembering where to stop the handle, try marking it or placing something that blocks you from turning it farther. (You can also consider planting native plants that require less water, and reducing the amount of open lawn.)Once you know how many gallons it takes to water your garden, you can see how many watering sessions one rain barrel will give you. For example, if I need 10 gallons a day to water my vegetable garden, and I buy a 50-gallon barrel, then a full barrel will water my veggie garden for five days. Best time to do this project: This project makes for a great DIY spring weekend with family, and you can start to see the fruits of your labor as soon as those April showers hit. Keep in mind: If you’re at all suspicious about your roofing material, or the material of whatever surface from which you’re collecting the rainwater, consider having it tested. At the very least, research online the possible contaminants that could come from your kind of roof. This becomes even more important when you’re using the tank water to irrigate an edible garden, since any contaminant would then be consumed. How long your water can sit in your tank is, again, very dependent on where you’re located. Here in Italy the general rule of thumb is one month. If you’re looking for a system to store water all summer long, you may want to consider other types of rainwater systems that include pumps, filtration and treatment for long-term storage.

The U.S. Geological Survey has a supereasy rain calculator that can help you determine how much water falls during a storm. If you know your roof area and inches of rainfall, it tells you how many gallons you can collect. For example, an average roof of 2,700 square feet in a 3-inch downpour storm could collect almost 5,000 gallons of water during that storm. Obviously that would overflow any small DIY barrel. If there’s no rain, there’s no rain. But if you have a low-water xeriscape landscape, with a 50-gallon barrel and a hose that flows at 10 gallons per minute, that’s five solid minutes of watering a day. One tenth of an inch of rain on a roof that size will give you more than 150 gallons. Say you do get 1/10 of an inch a day on a 2,700-square-foot roof. And you set up three barrels to collect 150 gallons. That’s 15 minutes of watering at 10 gallons per minute! That’s a lot for some gardens (though not for, say, a golf course). Or you can head over to Save the Rain, where the interactive website allows you to estimate mean annual rainfall for your exact location

First steps: Depending on where you are located, your annual rainfall will obviously have a big effect on how much water you are able to harvest and use. Some countries, like Australia, have a plethora of online calculators to help you determine what size tank to get based on your roof shape and climate (my favorite Aussie rainwater tool is the Tankulator). In the U.S. you’ll need to search at state or regional levels (like with the EPA’s calculator for the Mid-Atlantic region). Daily rainfall is all-important too. The U.S. Geological Survey has a supereasy rain calculator that can help you determine how much water falls during a storm. If you know your roof area and inches of rainfall, it tells you how many gallons you can collect. For example, an average roof of 2,700 square feet in a 3-inch downpour storm could collect almost 5,000 gallons of water during that storm. Obviously that would overflow any small DIY barrel. If there’s no rain, there’s no rain. But if you have a low-water xeriscape landscape, with a 50-gallon barrel and a hose that flows at 10 gallons per minute, that’s five solid minutes of watering a day. One tenth of an inch of rain on a roof that size will give you more than 150 gallons. Say you do get 1/10 of an inch a day on a 2,700-square-foot roof. And you set up three barrels to collect 150 gallons. That’s 15 minutes of watering at 10 gallons per minute! That’s a lot for some gardens (though not for, say, a golf course). Or you can head over to Save the Rain, where the interactive website allows you to estimate mean annual rainfall for your exact location. This tool is designed to show the effect of drastic changes in rainfall patterns we can expect to see this century on world food supplies. Once you select your roof from the satellite map, it estimates how much corn, rice, soy and wheat could be grown with the water you could save.
