Installing the Sky Light

I was on the fence about having a skylight, but finally we decided to go ahead with it. I ordered a 22 x 47 Velux Roof Access Skylight from Home Depot. It opens a full 90 degrees and comes with LowE3 glass. It has a built in air vent and we ordered the Velux room darkening custom blinds as well.


It’s not too late to change my mind.


Framing out the opening.


Can you believe I’m going to cut a hole in a perfectly good roof!


Well, no going back now.


I made the rough opening a little too tight, so I have to do some sanding.


Skylight installed.
