We have some odd shaped window well’s for our basement. We get animals and trash often in them. Not to mention the wife is afraid our 18 month old might fall into one of them.
So I can up with my own design. It is made out of cedar and have a solid metal rod wrapped in cedar as a cross brace. I routered in a 1/2” grove to place a wire mech screen into it. I originally thought to use clear Plexiglas, but I still get a lot of moisture in there and I didn’t want it to turn into a greenhouse. :)
Also I used a French cleat to brace the cover against the house. This way you can still easily remove the cover without having to un fasen anything. (Fire safety thing) Plus it still give the needed support.
