Old House Journal - - They Still Make... -

No bub­ble-dome sky­lights these! Metal and glass sky­lights and roof lanterns—which look like mini con­ser­va­to­ries—may be fa­mil­iar rooftop sights in Lon­don, New York, and be­yond. They bring light into a stair­well or a win­dow­less bath­room. The old ones were fit­ted with clear, pressed, or col­ored glass. To­day, Glass House makes cus­tom sky­lights in clas­sic shapes: hipped, pyra­mid, oc­tag­o­nal, seg­mented, and flat. Choose a wood-framed sky­light clad in copper, or an alu­minum-framed sky­light in a dark bronze or color pow­der-coat fin­ish. Low-E safety glass is stan­dard. Mo­tor­ized vent­ing is avail­able. Re­place­ment sky­lights can be made to fit the ex­ist­ing rough open­ing. Glass House even of­fers copper caps and ball-and-spire finials. The com­pany also fab­ri­cates con­ser­va­to­ries, so­lar­i­ums, and green­houses. Glass House, (860) 974-1665,
