The house my parents built had a slanted box ('triangular') with a 60-80 gallon black painted water tank in it, in the top of a greenhouse addition roof gable. But the so-called 'solar contractor' put it two feet from the exterior glazing and that cut down the already marginal light capture, due to internal shading.
