Sky Lights/Sun Roof

Hey all! So we have gotten most of the demo done and are looking to replace the emergency exits with sky lights. We are also debating on extending them for more head room (not sure on this yet)... I'd like at least one to open if possibly for safety and access to the roof.

What have you guys done? Any good deals? Any place I should look? I am seeing various options but they are so pricey. I am wiling to make one myself but would like some guidance.

We removed our exit completely. Purchased a 24x24 poly skylight from Menards, which was cheap, but slightly too small for the opening. https://www.menards.com/main/doors-w...4441868573.htm

I built a frame for under/around the skylight out of 1x4 PVC trimboard. Then attached to the roof with plenty of screws. Sealed it with butyl tape underneath, and Dicor sealant covering all screws and seams. The photos show the skylight before it was thoroughly sealed. We love it.
