Love the integrated skylight; brings warmth to a modern (almost surgical) design for this bathroom!

The tile was a little tricky to lay -- as the pieces ( like many times) were not completely square -- and there are not finish pieces -- but a good

Here is a view inside the room with the skylight. The skylight is out of view on the left, but its effects are clearly apparent: The light coming down from the opening in the ceiling balances the window opposite and gives the person who sleeps on the right side of the bed a nice glimpse of sky.
This isn’t your traditional skylight, but it’s an example of thinking outside of the box when it comes to utilizing roof windows. Here one can appreciate the effects of the wall window’s becoming a roof window. It’s very similar to the corner window treatment. The skylight offers views to the night sky

Modern coatings on VELUX Skylights called Neat Glass, really cut down on the cleaning needed for the exterior of the skylight. Read all about it here: http://blog.skylightsforless.com/velux-neat-glass/ Cleaning of skylights would be done the same as any other window in your
your home. Cleaning solution and a squeegee works really well and can be done quickly! For out of reach skylights you can put a squeegee on a pole similar to a window washer.

Hi - I love the clean and simple lines and finish in this house - you've done a wonderful job. Question about all the skylights: do they open, or are they fixed? And who are they from?
THANK YOU SO MUCH! Skylights are from Velux and are fixed (in our climate they would probably never be opened)
