Would you consider having one of the two tanks at the house larger than 2,000L?
I don't know your average annual rainfall but your catchment area totals 320 sq m.…

Will you also be on mains water? I am assuming not.
I am also assuming 3 or (possibly) 4 downpipes at the house.

I'll notify Homeone.
