I'm still not 100% happy with our drinking water container. Right now we are using one of those 3-gallon plastic rectangular dealies. It's a plastic of the slightly less toxic variety, but I'm still not thrilled with using plastic, period. I suspect this part of the system will evolve over time.

water storage solution that allowed us to have safe drinking water even though we don't have room for a large, rigid container. I got some really great ideas in the comments, my favorite being the use of a Heineken mini-keg. The input got my own creativity going again and I had an epiphany: why not use two different containers, one for drinking water and one for dish/shower water? I picked up a 4-gallon solar shower and hung it on the wall next to the sink. In the morning, it can easily be moved and hung on one of our outdoor hooks to heat up in the sun. This gives us passive solar hot water for dishes or for showering.
