Hi I'm Brandon, aka Comrade Squidward on other instances. I wanted to show off the tiny first step we're making to being sustainable.

We took the down spout chain from our shed and directed it into a 55 gallon drum. We have more plumbing plans in store for this, plus a second barrel for the main house downspout. We're going to use it to water an herb garden we're planting soon :)

@sage Looking good! Might already be in your plans but you could drill a tap in at the bottom to make filling from it easier (might need to be raised a bit more.)
I have vague plans to tap into our back gutter's downpipe and divert some of the water into a bin, but nervous about what the neighbours would think and saving water never seems like a pressing problem in Scotland...
