Very small "shed"

I need to build a little pump-house type thing to cover a plastic water tank, protecting it from weather and sun. The size with be approx 2' square, 3' high. Construction will be PT 2x4 framing and 3/4" plywood panels (shooting for hurricane ready here...). I need to hinge both the top and front. It will sit on a concrete slab and be attached at the base with lag screws.

The problem I'm having is figuring out how to do the "roof". I would like to build it with a slope for water runoff ("shed roof" style) but can't figure out how to get the angle set up correctly on the frame.

I hope to do this simply and with as little cash layout as possible (of course )

Thanks for any tips!

Make the slab a little larger so you have room for an emergency generator next to the shed.

June is coming and the water is warmer this year!

That's a good idea but won't fly as this area is visible from the street. Generators have to be hidden around here, chained down too
