Got some photos of mine for you

The one gap has always been big...my contractor said he couldn't pull that one rafter in all the way. So that was like that from the beginning. I haven't noticed any movement...but I'm always so preoccupied with the darn condensation I might not have noticed.

I am sorry to hear. Maybe talk let Jesse know. When mine was leaking last fall I got on the roof and put some silicone where the glass meets the frame and disconnected the opener to take the tension of. Is it leaking due to rain or condensation?

I've spoken to Jesse lots of times lol. When they see my phone number, they probably go running.
Well, the past three winters, I think it was condensation. But now it's so much more water and happens when it's raining. So the conclusion is for some reason this winter it decided to leak. I caulked it this weekend. But...very upset. At this point, I want to remove the skylight completely and replace it with a cupola. Looking into that now...the saga continues lol.

Hey Canada, what part of the country are you in?
I'm looking to go this route on Vancouver Island but still trying to work through some of the gotchyas re cost/condensation/etc....

Anyone who's had condensation issues ever try running a heat pump for both heat and for pulling down the humidity a bit?

Not sure the heatpump would help with condensation much in winter, it would in summer though, Mine has no condensate in the winter, which is good because the drainage port would surely freeze solid.

I have not considered a heat pump. The skylight is definitely an issue. I'm in the process of replacing it with a cupola....the metal ring is the issue as far as I'm concerned it's kind of a design flaw.
