Rain Roof – Rainwater Harvesting Project – How To

Building a Rain Roof as another option to harvest rainwater for home, garden or livestock use. Specifically this is set up for my rainwater garden area but could be used for just about anything.
This project started out originally as a roofing test prop I made to conduct a desert roofing test. Once that was done, the goal was to make the existing framework into a rainwater collection project. I show the conversion of the test prop into the current roofing configuration, how it works, a little about the rainwater garden area and then I try to answer some questions about the project.

Please let me know if you have any questions 🙂

NOTE regarding changes in the rainwater garden fruit trees. If the trees in the middle section look different than the original project video, that is because those were lost due to a javelina event. Haha… yes, sounds weird. But the quick story is that during one of our dry spells we had a pack of javelina root up and eat many of the moist roots of those trees. Consequently, we ended up loosing 3 trees (apricot, peach, fig) Currently, although not during the video (because it’s ugly…lol), I have a wire fence ring around them to protect from the same type of event.

If you guys like the videos I make and would like to help support the channel at no additional cost to you. Please consider doing some of you Amazon shopping through this link. I may receive a commission on some of the items you buy. Thanks for considering, it’s greatly appreciated ☺
