    Design & build a pool cover

    Hello to all,

    Looking to design and build a cover for pool equipment. Here are the spec's.

    Cover dimensions = 13' L [from left to right] x 4' ft W [from wall outward]. The equip pad is 12'x 3' 6" the dimensions above considers overhang. The main goal to keep the sun off and the majority of direct rain.

    I have to be able to remove the top of the cartridge system [3.5ft tall] and take out the cartridges [3.5 ft/2 + 3 ft] = 4' 3". I am 6' 3", so I was thinking attach to the wall at 6'6", then a 2" slope over 4' to end at 6'4".

    The wall is stucco/2 stories high and it's not necessary it be water tight at the wall where the cover would attach; meaning water can leak down the stucco wall. If fact, that would help the foundation anyway.

    this whole area is contained by fencing w a river rock all over the ground, except for the concrete equip pad.

    Pls let me know what you think and let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you very much for your thoughts and feedback,
