    No.

    BUT ...

    Having the curb 4" high would be a good reference point, the manufacturer's installation instructions would state 'how high' the curb should be for their skylight installation to meet their listing and labeling.

    Having the corners soldered or welded would be included inn however the manufacturer have their skylights during the testing for their listing and labeling.

    The important thing is "How did you do that second picture"?

    The curb(framing) is 6" on flatter roofs and 4" on steep roofs. They use 2x4 and 2x6. The flashings are field bent by the roofers and if installed correctly doesn't require welded seams or caulking except up under the top where the pan is. Done hundreds of these.

    I think someone else just did that on another post.

    Please share for show and tell with the rest of the class how you do the split screen pics.

    Tim,

    Open up any graphics program, open the two photos you want to use, check their sizes, then just create a new (blank) image in the graphics program with the same height and twice the width of the photo being inserted, then copy one photo and paste it into the new image, then copy the other photo and paste it into the new image next to the first photo, viola ... two images in one!
