looking at the sole water source for the family. Water is channeled via pvc pipe from the roofs into the tanks where it is stored. There is a supply loop that is powered by an "on-demand" pump and a series of micron and UV filters back to the house (exactly like those used by a typical water well system)
The pressure is provided by the pump. The bathroom lavatories and air conditioning condensate were connected to a separate drain line that collects water used for gardening.

Water Collection When living off-grid, a renewable water supply is essential. A private drilled well is common. Using water from a nearby lake or stream is another option. Once you identify your water source, the next step is
want to walk into it.. lol I'm imagining moving a desk? chair? rug? into the space. Having a dog... Having a glass of wine and stepping into the water instead of the 12 inch square piece of dry surface? Things regular people would do. Sorry
I like the simplicity of this one, and the water feature out front (though I would also want a better "path" right outside the door.)
Neat outside office and water, not feasible in Ohio though. Like how you interact with pond by stepping on stone to enter/exit office.

Galvanized metal water and food containers hang from cables on a ceiling beam. Since the chickens love to scratch around and kick up the pine shavings on the floor, Dalley raised their food containers to keep the space tidy. The double-wall water container uses vacuum pressure to keep the water level consistent

High nesting perches, where chickens love to sleep, go down the back wall on a diagonal. The bottom perch is close enough to the nesting box that the chickens can hop in easily. Galvanized metal water and food containers hang

How do you keep it water tight with open siding?
I love the pathway to the entrance of the shed. The water element adds a special touch
For the backyard, incorporate the garage conversion to have a water feature, cooling pool like this.
garden room with water feature is great

water and prayer closet?

Instead of allowing the rain to shed off the entire roof, like a curtain, the gutters catch the water so we can direct it to the corners of the building. There are copper rain chains which also provide a functional, decorative feature. Thanks for asking
floating? neat space to site on the water though. i like the huge overhanging eaves

insects that may be tagging along. The most thorough way to do this is by submerging the entire thing in a tub of water — if there are bugs living in the soil, they should appear in the water after a few minutes. If that happens, you may want to repot your plant and change the potting soil before bringing
pets and kids; you don’t need anything too harsh for this job. In fact, some gardeners have luck using a simple solution of pure Ivory liquid soap and water. Make sure you spray the tops and bottoms of all of the leaves where bugs like to hang out.

Toro Cyn Chicken Coop
We collect water from the main house roof, as well as having chickens, my design for the chicken coop was not made for collecting water, this idea is great although my design is also neat will post later.
