Dear PoPville – Installing a Skylight in a Historic District

Dear Popville,

I am interested in installing a skylight in my old rowhouse to let a little bit more light in. Would any of your readers have any recommendations on contractors that specialize in this? Also, since i live in a historic district, would permits need to be posted for this?
