-Did a little reading and skimming online. Here are some notes: +  ​Freezing ​winters are a big factorfrozen water can cause containers and plumbing to burst. Storage of both fresh and waste water, including whatever may be trapped in plumbing, has to take that into account. You'd want to make sure the house can be easily made freeze proof (containers emptied, plumbing drained) if left unattended long enough for anything to reach freezing temperature. 
- +  * Have to take into account what the local regulations ​say, and how strictly you want to adhere to them.

-  * Have to take into account what the applicable ​regulations ​are, and how strictly you want to adhere to them. +  *For greywater, you could have a dual system: a runoff pipe for a farm-type setting, and a sealed storage unit (like those wheeled RV containers) that can be periodically dumped, for a more urban/​serviced area. Two options depending on location.

-  *Estimate your water usage for washing and bathing, how many liters/​gallons of grey water will you have to deal with weekly? ​That's kinda necessary in order to consider options. +
-  *For grey water, you could have a dual system: a runoff pipe that could be quickly hooked up and laid out for a farm-type setting, and a sealed storage unit (like those wheeled RV containers) that can be periodically dumped, for a more urban/​serviced area. So you have options depending on location.+
