Keep us updated. Can't wait to hang out in there and drink coffee in the morning (after a tasty Clare made bacon sandwich).

The big problem I've got with rainwater is that it's so dam cold. I was going to just have it flow 100% into the fishroom from the roof downpipe and overflow into the drain. However, if it rains for days, that means the rainwater store in the fishroom is going to get really cold and even drop the room temperature but most worryingly will evaporate like nuts unless it's into some sort of sealed container. I can't guarantee I'm going to be around to modify the flow.
It has a tap that you could connect a house to and then just let gravity do the rest. If you need more than 50-55 gallons, the rain barrel could be put on a stand with another 55 gallon trash can (with lid) below it for additional storage. 100 gals of rainwater would go far, esp considering how often it rains up there.
