Access code?


Is this ok? I want to put a large access panel (or maybe a pocket door?) inside the bedroom closet to access my plumbing so when it's time for a new water heater, etc... This will also allow easy access to the back of my panel.
The blue is walls, and there will be drywall or whatever I need between the panel section and the plumbing section.

Anyone see anything wrong with me doing this? The PANEL is outside....
(shown in red)

Thanks!

Not a pro, but I don't see a need for the partition wall at all. You just have to have your clearances.

I know, but I'll do it anyways, just because I'm paranoid, and the materials are close to free.... Po)
A double door setup on overhead rollers would be best I think, that way I can easily work on either side, or pop off the doors to install a new WH. I'll also need easy access twice a year as I will be adding an inside valve for the garden hose which is 2' away from the source, so I can close it off for the winter and not worry about freeze.
I already did this at the back of the house for a second hose that also shuts off inside the home in the laundry room. Replacing frozen pipes is not on my list of favorite things to do.......
