Can tubular skylights be installed through a second story?

The many uses of Sun Tunnel skylights

Yes, you can light up a room when there is another room above the room you are trying to lighten. There are a couple of things to keep in mind:

  1. The tube needs to pass through the upper floor somewhere. Either through a closet or in a corner of two walls that can be enclosed with drywall are good choices.
  2. We try and design the tube not to be any longer than about fourteen feet so that you still will get light through the tube.

This type of installation is perfect for basements on single story homes or 1st floors on second story homes, etc.
