Slightly OT: Skylight help needed!
Was planning adding 29" square electric skylights when replacing roof, but am getting some negative feedback from the contractor who notes they will look like little openings - even when splayed - as my ranches ceilings are low. "...and they won't provide much light", etc. He seems to think they will not look good - "little tunnels as the roof is 7-8 feet up...". I cannot afford to make cathedral ceilings. Was planning on two each on east and west sides. On the east side the kitchen is fairly dark in the afternoon, so I was hoping for some extra light, and I am a little concerned the two in the west facing living room may make it too hot and or bright, but the main concern is for ventilation/to exhaust heat. Any thoughts? Anyone have photo's of that approximate size in a low ceiling? ANY and all feedback is appreciated.
