Mr. Fanatic finished another project on the list.
It actually wasn't on any of my lists, but Mr. F. though it would be a great idea to put in a solar tube skylight in the upstairs bathroom while we were getting our house re-roofed. The upstairs bathroom doesn't have a window and definitely needed some natural light.
We had the roofers put in the top part of the solar tube.
I don't know about you, but I would have a difficult time cutting a hole in a perfectly good roof!
A hole was cut in the drywall ceiling in the bathroom and Mr. F. put the flange on. Looking through you can see into the attic.
The ducting was connected with the part that goes through the roof.
Another piece of ducting attaches to the flange in the bathroom ceiling. All the light you see is from the hole in the roof. As you can see here, an additional piece of ducting was needed to connect the two.
The ducting comes in a couple of pieces and had to be connected with screws and duct tape.
Here's the duct-work all connected.
Notice how dark the bathroom is when the solar tube is covered up...
...the solar tube brings quite a bit of natural light into the room.
The solar tube really adds the perfect amount of light and the bathroom looks great with the vanity light on
Now that the solar tube is installed,
we he can get back to the list...
How are you doing on your project list?
