Skylight Framing – A Breeze Because It’s All Indoors

It may be comforting to know that all of your skylight framing happens before you make even the first cut into shingles.

That’s right…  In your attic where it is dry and safe, you can set up your worklight and have ample time to cut out the center rafter (most skylights involve cutting into one rafter), shore up the adjoining king rafters by sistering them, and framing out the skylight opening.  All of this skylight framing and structuring work can be done before you cut the actual opening for the skylight.
