This was an ambitious project for the first time ever to cut a hole in a roof. Nothing small like an attic vent or something small. On top of that it waas really two holes, one in the roof and a separate one in the ceiling as they were separated by a small attic space.
This picture shows the angle of the roofline and the horizontal joint of the overlap of the siding pretty closely matches the ceiling line.
What that really came down to was more inside finish work “rockin’” the ceiling back. Yo can get an idea from one of the pictures how much more wall there was on one side of the skylight from the other.
What a difference it made to the lighting of the room. The ceilings in that house were a bit under 8’ so the room tended to have a closed in feel to it. But look at the light shining through after the project was done.
I went with a top quality skylight that could open and came with a crank-pole.
