I am starting this on here as there may be others who wish to do what im going to do.  Pictures will follow.
We want to use rainwater to flush our main loo.
I have purchased 2 waterbutts with kits from Argos (delivery Tuesday).
I have also elicited consent from Mr Grumpy to house one of these in the porch (nearest access to the loo cistern) on a stand.  The area is currently housing our nearest woodstack, so the stand will still be able to accomodate some wood under it.  We may also be able to screen it off to look prettier (as its right next to the front door).

....to be continued....
