So i have been looking to get some raw land(5 acres) so i can finally live my dream of raising livestock and growing my own food. However with cheap land come many other expenses. In my area(east tennessee) the average cost for well is 10k. I have thought about using a rain catch system and not drill a well right now. Does anyone have any experience with this? i would only need water for washer,toilet and shower. So i wouldnt be using alot. Honestly i would just use a composting toilet for a couple of years if i didn't also have to worry about water from sink,shower,etc.Cost for a legitimate rain catch system i estimated would be around 2-3k. And i would buy any water i would need for cooking and drinking. Any input would be great!
