Skylight Installed

As promised this is the photo of the skylight now installed at the top of the stairs. I have established a glazing bar with ties to support the piece across the centre. I installed it on the long axis rather than the short one. This was to provide maximum support along the "folding" lines and because it is visually much less intrusive.

Without knowing where the support bar is, it is very difficult to see it. As this is not a large skylight, it can have the bar above. Were it to have been a large one, the support would have to be below. For this reason, I usually install toughened glass of appropriate thickness to support the leaded panel.
