My hubby and I are trying to slowly transform our house to be "greener". This past weekend we installed a rain gutter to the side of our house and made a rain barrel. He took a 55 gallon drum, painted it green, cut holes in barrel, set up barrel & modified downspout and assembled the parts. Here is the link we used to guide us. We just got another drum and will be working on attaching it this weekend. We hope to be watering our lil' garden with the rain water we collect. Go Green!!!
