Has anyone ever installed a skylight over a shower?

Customer wants one for a bathroom remodel.

never thought of it before, but it seems like it should be fine. Just wondering if anyone's had problems with condensation or something from a steamy shower?
I had one in my last home, took out a window in the tub area and installed.
I did install a vent light in the shaft to vent the skylight area and serve as a light at night. The whole thing worked very well.



You need a gooooood exhaust fan.

What about one of the solar tube things?
Yes on the exhaust fan and yes on the tube also. These can be had with lights and fans built into them and are much more energy efficient than a traditional skylight.

I once did a kitchen in a one bath house, with a greenhouse window that covered the entire wall above the tub/shower. I asked the owner (woman) if she felt self-conscious taking a shower there. She replied "no, but sometimes the neighbors look over the fence".
