I did another of these Skylights I'd buy a bag of these first and not mess about with supplied screws

Especially after lengthening the bed frame to sleep North/South it would have to be a valuable addition for light & air yes,

being able to get at PV panels and connectors on roof (and clean some inaccessible bits too) is an unexpected bonus

A sunroof-skylight looks a relatively easy job in those pictures and that must make it so much nicer to be in over this hot weather

Great description with loads of photo's
Good job Richard.
I bet it makes a lot of difference to the natural light level in the bed area

During the biblical rainfall here in last hour I've been laying on bed in camper anxiously watching for leaks in my Heki handiwork and its FINE, reckon if it will repel a storm like that it should survive nearly anything :D :D

Richard,
I have made provision for 2 x 400mm square, One above the table, one above the chef :D with a 280x280 in the shower room. I must admit yours does look interesting ;)

RIchard, where do you find these for £20?

How high off the roof do they stand and would you gain a couple of inches standing height when your'e underneath it?

Hi, mine was an Ebay in this instance, are you having problems finding any?

I do still have the original (short) kit if they are of use
