If this is for a cabin, solar/wind generator would not need fuel.

If I had a place and a little spare coin I'd build a nice self sufficient little cabin. Currently we camp in my wife's luxury albeit smallish trailer.

I have a cottage at the seashore but if sea levels rise it will be prone to flooding, so that's no good.

You might want to put it on stilts before you need to. The job will be tougher once the water's up.

I rarely endorse products, so when I do you can be sure it's good.

I highly recommend one of these:

WaterBOB Bathtub Bladder

You're more likely going to need to (and want to) shelter-in-place than evacuate in 90% of all exigencies. This is the best $30 you'll ever spend.

I don't think you know the definition of the word "rarely," Mr. Sobe.

Un-heated water bed ≠ good. Though I might be further north than you.

It does double as an emergency septic tank/porta-john, however.

I'm going to have to fail you this course Terr. You dig the latrine down hill and/or at very least down stream from your water source.

Wait.. What???
The water comes from the faucet above your teapot or whatever you are filling, the insta-porto-john is safely below. Perfectly sanitary, no?

You don't want your septic tank to be open. You also don't want to use your house as a porta john, double so if there's no vacume trucks available.

If the sewer is draining and the water is running you don't need to store any in your tub. If you stored water in your tub wether with or without the bladder you'll want to dig a latrine out in the yard. Or if the sewer is functioning use the toilet and flush it with a jug using some of your water you are storing. Though if it might be long term you'll want to start digging and save that water for drinking/cooking.

I just figured you could use a shop vac...

Good thinking, 2dimes. Now I gotta go get the shopvac out of the garage. Sigh.
