Build Your Own… Water Tower?

Lindsay ~ 16 August 2005

When you think of water towers, you probably think of those metal municipal tanks that hover on the outskirts of most cities. wants to change your perceptions of them. They sell building plans for water towers meant for residential use… just in case you ever wanted a tower in your backyard. Well, why not? Maybe you want to get back that view you used to have before the neighbors added their second story. Maybe you’ve got a piece of land and want to build a cool vacation home. Maybe you want to stash extra water for emergencies. Or maybe you’ve always wanted a unique guest house. (Maybe you think this is a crazy idea and we’re nuts for suggesting it.) Do check with local building codes before you decide to put a thirty foot tall structure on your property…
