Skylights Project2

I call this Skylights Project2 because it was actually my second round of installing skylights in my New England house. Also this time it was installing two of them on a fairly well pitched roof.

So, what takes more nerve than cutting a hole in the exterior wall of your house? Cut a hold in your roof. It takes confidence in skill that you will shingle and flash the roof so not to have any leaks!

Again, I lack before pictures but imagine this large room with a vaulted ceiling and nothing on the ceiling. there was no lightging, no fan, no nothing!

You can see on on pic that I have the electrical box for the fan and had already installed the lower (and upper, not shown) track lighting. I had built wooden scaffolding to make it easy to work acros the room doing the ‘rocking’ and electrical for the fan.

On one picture you see a third skylight with a slight bubble top. that was installed by the builder, not me.

Well done. Looks like you nailed it.

I have installed many skylights and it is always a scary thing to cut a hole in someones roof. If there will be a leak, it will be in the roof.

Seems as if you had the confidence. I imagine that in New England, the weather is always a factor when doing any roof work.
