only one spout and one rain barrel for water harvesting. During a drizzly rain, a 50-gallon drum fills up in about a day ; during a hard rain, it takes only a few hours. Use a larger tank so that winter rains can be collected to last through summer.

love gutters, what did you use, I am building now and want copy! txs
more info in the Residential Architect article: http://www.residentialarchitect.com/architects/rain-go-away.aspx
It's a concrete culvert. It's not being use as a rain barrel in this application. It collects rainwater and controls discharge into the adjacent stream.
The way water is channeled without the use of gutters
rain water harvesting roof line
coolest rain gutter I ever saw
If industrial is your style, forget the wood barrels and go all out with metal and concrete. The pipe look, rather than an open gutter, reinforces the theme and the concrete blends with the home's siding
"We do in fact get rain, and attention needs to be paid to it," Farkas adds. "Roof overhangs and well-detailed gutters and downspouts can turn a necessity into an amenity."

the inside of the barrel retrofitted with any sort of storage?
If you like rustic, this is a really cool idea for a mini island in a tight space, but if there is no way to utilize the storage potential inside the barrel, it might be defeating a part of the purpose.
Is two barrels better than one
Would this be better if it had two barrels and a countertop between the two?
The wine barrel as an island!
Barrel Table also interesting and rustic
barrel with marble top. could use glass too. like the contrast of the marble
Can we find a use for an attractive wine barrel?

Rain Chain into rain catchment pebble fountain
Rocks below rain chain for water to flow into
river rocks for downspout drain and rain chains
rain chain with rocks on bottom
bottom looks great and helps the rain make its way into the ground.
I lieu of a rain barrel - a French drain with a rain chain
Rain Chain into rain catchment pebble fountain
Rain chain ending in rock garden
Unique features...never used a rain chain before.
Rain chain plus splash area, water feature
using rain chain to feed water feature
removing your downspouts to replace them with a rain chain, you might as well take it to the next level and enhance the area where the rain settles. Some stacked rocks or a ceramic pot with a hole drilled through the bottom looks great and helps the rain make its way into the ground.
