I'm trying to create a building that uses no electricy and therefore am using tubular skylights for light. However, I'm not sure the best way to put them into the building as the roof is slanted. See attached what I have done. As you can see, there is a gap between the roof and the ceiling. I've cut openings in the roof, and ceiling, but I need the light to be contained in those openings. Anyone have a suggestion of the best work around? Should I be adding something to the skylight family or somehow adding a tube in the building?

Model like you build....

Would the containers be part of the skylight or ceiling?   No

Would they be like one sided walls?   Yes if square.

 

You say tubular.  There are ductwork like connectors for some of these skylight like these:

So I would suggest you model something like that.   It would be best if created as a family with a variable top angle and height.
