My garage has only a 7’ ceiling, so I pulled out the ceiling joists, & added 2 X 4s with 9” plywood gussets to the rafters to accommodate 9” R-30 insulation. I did this in my existing shop about 18 years ago. Doing this took out about 2” of sag in the old rafters.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I had a small bubble type skylight leftover from the other shop that I hadn’t used, so I installed it in
this ceiling. For such a small opening, 14 1/2” X 14 1/2” it sure give out a lot of light.
I searched for this type, but they don’t make them anymore.
The company now only makes the Tubular type skylights.
The Skylight installation process.
A Big Thank You to Barb for most of these fine pictures.
