I'd build the house over the cistern. No basement - they're rare here anyway.

I'm sure all of this would be in violation of local ordinances. It's just a fantasy. Though, unlike in Colorado, I don't think there are any prohibitions here against capturing rainwater.

I guess soap and shampoo might be a bad idea in the cistern, though I hate the idea of sending that water into the sewer. Maybe there are some lawn-friendly soap products we could switch to.
