skylights

the two skylights in the living room are framed into a single box.

skylights from inside

they’ve replaced the rotted wood under the living room window (bad flashing around a window) and cut a new window into the front entry hall.

new window added

the roof is on.

the roof is done

this is looking down at the flat roof over the front door. it measures 5’x4′ and i’m planting it. called g-sky today to find out more about getting the supplies to set it up as my experimental green roof and the salesguy was taken aback by the very wee nature of the project. he said he’ll get back to me… realistically, i could just come up with my own kit – waterproofing membrane (on top of the torch-on roof), root barrier, some kind of cells/containers, lightweight potting soil and a schwack of sedums. or maybe grasses? i’ll wait until the water is turned back on – my garden is shrivelling before my eyes.

imagine this is a green roof

    It was a t-lock in Vancouver – but I called around and nobody had any more roofing tiles left!

    What skylights did you use? I am looking for some for my house and can’t figure put what the best option is.
    Thanks!
