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. http://www.water-towers.com 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…
