I was planning on installing 2 skylights next to each other in my kitchen. The house is a ranch with a low pitch roof. The skylights are 28"x46", and I would like to center them in the ceiling. If this is to be done, I would need to remove 46" plus header thicknesses of the middle of 3 ceiling joists in a row. Is this too many ceiling joists to cut in a row? The other alternative was to space the skylights out a few inches each way from the center. This would require only 2 joist to be cut, with the center one remaining. I would rather cut all 3 to really open up the ceiling. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thx
