I have a triangular walled area, in which there is a 2500 ltr Oil tank and a heap of space. I'd like to use the space for storing larger garden tools - essentially things that don't care about the cold but are better kept dry.
Adding a roof to this area wouldn't be diificult if it's in "one piece"
- Add a couple of layers of brick on two sides to
- allow sloped beams to be put in with hangers
prevent wind getting under &
hide roof from sight
Add a bit of guttering and downpipe to deal with water
My research hasn't found an issue with fire/explosion as far as the oil tank is concerned, these can be covered. The area will have airflow anyway.
Only problem is the tank needs filling and the oil pipe comes over one of the walls during delivery. A simple hatch will suffice but I can't work out the best way to shape/fit/seal this so that water coming down the roof doesn't just run into the hole.
So - best way to construct a watertight hatch in an acrylic panel roof?
Don't care whether it lies on top of the roof or is a flush fit as long as it keeps out air and water when closed.
