Being prepared isn’t about being scared or paranoid—it’s about safety.  It’s about having the ability to protect your family and being able to weather any storm, no matter how tough.  In today’s modern age, people expect clean food on shelves and drinkable water from taps.  But that hasn’t always been the case, and it won’t always be the case.  Civil unrest or natural disaster could bring your city or state’s infrastructure crashing down around your eyes.  When there’s no food and the water stops flowing, when your lights flicker out, will you be prepared?

This eBook is a six month project guide for preparing your home.  It’s a great resource for beginner’s unsure of how to start preparing their home, as well offering direction to more advanced prepper’s who don’t know where to go from their current position.

This guide is also a fun, DIY book—if you like tinkering or making things, we’ve got 24 ideas for you to try out whether you believe in being prepared or not.  From bio-filters to distilleries, gravity fed irrigation systems to hand pumps made from scratch—this eBook sets out one project a week, four projects a month, for a total of 24 across a period of six months.

Each chapter correlates to a month and has some common theme—water management, gardening, free (or cheap) energy, wilderness survival, and home construction are just some of the themes covered in this book.

We’ve also taken time to interconnect projects when we can so that you’re not left with twenty-four separate projects but rather several large-scale project built piece by piece.  You’ll see what we mean a few months in.

So don’t worry.  For preparation or fun, these DIY projects will help you save resources, lower energy bills, and give you the hands on experience in tinkering that we all love.

Inside You Will Learn:

  • How to collect, store, filter, and treat rainwater
  • Composting and gardening projects for your home
  • The best ways to harness the sun to your advantage—for free!
  • Wilderness survival for the worst of emergencies
  • Techniques to build stone tools by hand!
  • Home construction techniques to prepare for civil unrest and disaster
  • How to make a hand pump with common hardware
  • Ways to light up your home when there’s no power
  • How to cool your food without a fridge
  • And Much More

So relax and get ready.  We’ve got 24 fun, practical, and useful projects for you to use over the next six months.  It’s going to be great!

DIY Prepper’s Projects - Sergio Rodgers



As a prepper, do you ever find yourself at a complete loss of how to prepare your home for an emergency or disaster? Do you want to try living a more sustainable life, minimizing resource and energy consumption, but are unsure where to start?

This guide will convert your entire home into an efficient, sustainable living environment. By working on one project a week, this book will guide you through rebuilding—or improving—your home. Whether you are a beginner prepper unsure of where to start or an experienced prepper looking for more direction, this guide is here to help.

Each month is set up for you to accomplish just four projects a week, each designed to benefit the other. We believe in starting small and working our way up, interconnecting projects when necessary so that they can work together. As a bonus, we have also added two projects under each category that relate to emergencies, things that are useful right away, or when disaster strikes unexpectedly! These will increase the utility of this guide as it not only builds a six-month prepper’s dream plan; it includes details to keep you safer right from the start!

We’ll show you ways to utilize the natural water of your area to the best of your ability—gathering rain, distributing it, transporting it, purifying it, you name it! There're gardens and heaters, air conditioning, and filters. We save you money with ways to utilize solar energy to your advantage and give you tips on how to survive without any resources at all, abandoned in the woods.

We will also cover how to prepare your home for civil unrest and tips on storing food for the long term. In addition, when night falls, we have you covered with solutions for lighting up your home. We want you feeling prepared for anything. So as you work, week by week, feel free to explore the projects described here and learn as much as possible—learn how to utilize each one to its greatest advantage.

This guide is packed with projects—24 of them to be exact. Over the next six months, you will be able to work on one project a week and, within a half a year, be completely ready for any situation. No matter what level prepper you are, if you are looking for ideas, you need to look no further. These projects aren’t specific plans, but basic project recommendations suitable for personalization and customization. You are more familiar with your particular needs, and many of them can be accomplished with materials you may already have on hand.

Projects are described thoroughly in a straightforward manner. There is no confusing jargon, and none requires an engineering degree to accomplish. We want everyone to be able to pick up this book and put to use the projects inside it.

We hope you have a fantastic time over the next six months. Remember to be safe, use common sense, and, as always, stay prepared.

Good luck!

Chapter One: Water Management

In this chapter, you will learn:

How to construct a rainwater collection system

Best ways to store water for the long term

DIY water filter plans

Distilleries for water purification

The Importance of Water

Water is probably the most important resource for any type of emergency. As a prepper, preparing yourself for a water shortage is one of the smartest things you can do. By constructing ways to gather, store, and purify water, you can extend your water supplies for weeks or—given the right weather conditions—indefinitely.

This chapter will outline four projects for a month (that is, one project a week). By the end of the four projects, you will be well prepared for any sudden loss of access to fresh water. However, we will not end here. Later in this book, we will also discuss irrigation techniques (Chapter 3), passive water heaters (Chapter 3), and manual hand pumps (Chapter 5), all of which can be combined with many of the projects in this chapter. So let’s begin with the first of many projects to come.

Week 1: Rainwater Collector

Collecting rainwater is one of the fastest ways to get access to fairly fresh and clean water. This is a great first project, as it is very simple to set-up and offers immediate benefits to the user. Rainwater harvesting can provide the user with a water supply, independent of the city. This water can be used freely for any purpose and water restrictions in counties that have them do not usually apply.

The major component of the rainwater collector is the cistern. Cisterns can be construction from many different materials; cement, plastic, or wood are just a few options. However, the most economically viable option is plastic. Many people use new garbage bins or dedicated plastic water barrels for storage—both good solutions, yet they can store only so many gallons of water. If you wish to store more, Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) can be cheaply bought if used and can store more than 250 gallons of water!

What you will need

Eight to twelve 4’ long planks. I recommend 2 x 4’s of pest-resistant pine

250 to 275-gallon plastic (IBC)container

Garden Hose Spigot and hardware

May need a hole saw or large-bore drill

Gutter screen and fiberglass bug screen

Gutters, downspouts, and elbows

Silicone or other appropriate caulk or sealant

Assay of your property, indicating the highest point of elevation.

Construction is simple. It will be exceptionally heavy, so be sure to make the effort to test the soil to ensure the tank will be stable and supported, by placing and filling the tank before you connect all the pipes and gutters.

Choose and test a solid location for the tank.

You will want the storage tank to be on a solid but elevated location. Checking the property assay, you should be able to determine the best spot, and even if you don’t go to the effort of getting an assessment, for the most part, you can probably eyeball an effective placement for the tank. Measure the outside base of your tank, and loosen, and level the soil at the storage site. Ensure the substrate beneath the pallet is solid enough to keep the extreme weight of the container supported without shifting—the same goes for your pallet strength, too.

Construct a raised and level pallet near the outflow of your gutter.

Once it has been leveled, place the two-by –four lengths as a barrier between the earth and the bottom of the storage tank. This can be as sophisticated or simple as you desire; simply placing the lengths parallel to one another, and evenly distributed to carry the tan’s weight will work, but if desired, a full plank deck structure might be used to make the project more aesthetically pleasing. Raising it from the ground will also deter animals or insects puncturing your container over time. A pest-resistant wood frame material is optimal, as it will ensure a long life for the tank, without worrying about the inevitable decay of the planks, and having to deal with replacement later.

Connect water drainage to the tank by standard Gutters and Pipes.

Direct the outflow into your container using standard gutter piping. Ideally, you want to re-route every gutter so that the outflow goes into your storage tank. Because this is a natural environment, you can expect leaves, twigs, insects, and other detritus from your roof to flow into the cistern—as such, ensure the inlet to your cistern has two screens. The outmost screen can be standard gutter guard material, purchasable in small segments from any home improvement store. The inner screen should be a bug screen to keep mosquitos from breeding inside your cistern.

Lastly, the outflow of your water storage tank can be a simple garden hose. If your container doesn’t have an outlet already, simply cut a hole at the base
