Short on space but want more water barrels? Then perhaps these Water Barrel Stand Plans could be what you’re looking for. This article shows you how to build stands in order to stack 55 gallon barrels one atop another, even several wide. Remember that water is very heavy (one filled 55 gallon drum weights about 450 pounds) so be sure you follow the directions carefully and don’t cut corners.
Twana, thank you. Keep the good ideas comming, we are going to need them very soon.
AWESOME... and very handy for emergencys.
wow! i like this.... i don't have gutters on my house, so i bought me 2 rain barrels that have mesh covered holes in the top (and have them under where the eaves meet). but, i really like this! gonna check into it (my husband can build me the stand).
Thanks for this information.
