How to put together a simple gravity fed sink system for a kitchen and bathrrom in a remote of grid cabin?

I am trying to figure out how i am going to create a simple gravity fed sink or a maybe a manually pressurized sink using a foot pedal pump. Does anyone know of a good way to do this. i need one in the kitchen and bathroom. please be specific if you can. thanks.
I am bringing the water into the cabin by hand in portable water containers.

    A gravity feed is simple and convenient up to the point of reloading the tank up near the ceiling. Either you raise and lower the tank to fill it from buckets near the ground or you use a hand or foot pump to move the water up. Ordinary sink valves can be used although you will open them more to get the flow, which will be low.
    If you can get any voltage for recharging (solar or wind for example) there are a lot of RV water systems that turn on the pump when you open the fauscet.
    Pressure systems have a problem with leakage of air.
    Theaters use pressure spray tanks (like for insectides and wood preservatives) to supply water to sinks on stage, but these hold a rather small amount of water.
    Where are you getting the water from and how will you move it?
