We were having our roof re-done due to hail damage and decided this was the best time to have some new dormers installed in our rather dark finished attic. This has, of course, morphed not just into a dormer project but much more.
New roof and dormers = installed by professionals. Thank the heavens. Adam had shown me an article in his Family Handyman magazine (we’re lifetime subscribers) showing a husband and wife team doing it themselves. Hmm…I think I threw the issue out when he wasn’t looking. Oops.
New tubular skylights, two electrical outlets, two recessed lights and some AC tubing = installed by Adam.
The tubular skylights add a ton of light. They almost appear to look like fluorescent lights in the ceiling. Highly recommend these!
Roof in progress:
Discovered this in the hallway ceiling.
Looked up the metal shiny tube to find a gaping hole and the reflection of a tree in the tube.
With the glass caps on, these two skylights look like normal lights. My parents visited last weekend and they kept looking for a light switch to turn them off. Good job, honey! I love having a handy hubby! We like these so much we wished Adam had added two more while the roof was torn off.
