Why Buy This Book?
Not satisfied with plastic or galvanized steel water storage tanks? Think the pre-made wooden tank kits are a little lacking in quality? You've come to the right place! This is the only guide available anywhere that shows you every step involved in constructing a traditionally built wooden water tank (or cistern) that will last you for many years. With only a few common power and hand tools, you can make your own top quality, traditionally built wooden water tank that will be a source of pride for years to come. With this cistern, you will be able to easily harvest about 3,000 gallons (or another volume - you can customize the plans!) of precious rainwater for irrigation or other uses. Unlike off-the-shelf tanks, this attractive cistern is suitable for an urban environment. I've spend many months assembling the information contained in this book, and sweated over every detail so you won't have to. There's even a section on expanding the design to other cistern sizes. I'm even including the actual SketchUp file I used to design the cistern! Satisfaction guaranteed.
