This is a challenging assignment and very good. I did not do it but I checked to see if anyone else had. There are attempts but I don't think they follow instructions closely enough. I did find this, and laughed: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/94/af/2a/94af2ad209753beaf0d81a481ad3d49c.jpg

Yes. That's just a visual joke on a pre-existing model. I was thinking more of a unique system of heating the water, perhaps in the sun under a magnifying glass on the roof, with a pipe leading into the house. One would open a tap allowing the hot water to enter into a bowler hat type object filled with coffee grounds...
