Here’s our only buzzkill - we have too much water (which is the charm of the place, being so close to river). So we must ask you to be nearly-irrationally conservative with water.
1. No Laundry, 2. Let kitchen sink be the tiniest trickle for doing dishes, 3. TOILETS: If it’s yellow, let it mellow. And only go #2 upstairs. Maybe avoid downstairs toilet entirely, but it’s only “safe” to flush it in the morning (when the system has rested). 4. Male showers as quick as possible. Luckily, you aren’t here to be your cleanest, right? :-)
Hopefully being conservative with water use isn’t a turn-off. Cuz once you’re at our house, you’ll relax and it’ll be a non-issue.
