Goodbye skylight

A prior remodel installed a skylight into the roof over what was the master bathroom, which was also remodeled at the same time. We guess.

A skylight over what will be the laundry and utility room makes no sense to the Leons — especially when it intrudes into the ideal location for the attic ladder.

So out it comes, for donation to Habitat.

Plywood in the roof closes off the location of the former skylight. The lumber box in the ceiling frame is where the attic ladder will be installed.

The roof is now closed up with plywood and lumber. And the framing is in place for the new attic ladder.
