Yes I have a skylight in my flat roofed office. Unfortunately I have no way to get a pix for you. My camera is on a business trip! It is a large 4 x 4 square in the ceiling. Frankly we love it. However, I put a sun-cloth on top of it because here in TX we get hail storms and I've never had it break having the cloth on it, plus that help to defer the direct light.

We have a flat roof and 4 skylights. I don't know how to post pictures on this forum :(

But, basically, there is a "wall" that goes from the ceiling to the skylight. Mine are about 12" deep because with a flat roof, the skylight has to sit on a curb which raises it above the roof.
