I asked my supplier for an opinion about it and they recommended locating the skylights farther away from the walls so that a proper flashing could be installed.They made a foolish decision to install vertical skylights in a horizontal position, thereby necessitating the fabrication and installation of very poorly fabricated skylight flashings.
I had that 2-3 years ago also, and did my normal Ice and Water shield, or if were a flat slope roof, modified bitumen, from the roof decking up the curb side walls and terminating to the top of the curb.
For the new sheet metal, I would create a slight water diverting saddle and ensure that the corners wrapped around and not be left with open missing sheet metal, like the one by the window is now.
I was serious. Just because of some errors possiblbly due to lack of experience doesnt mean it was hacked up.Be serious, look at the missing sheet metal on the corners over the cap shingles.
The skylight she might consider eliminating is over an exterior porch. She said that it has lights already. I thought a tubular skylight might work well also.For the area that she is considering eliminating the one skylight from, you might consider one of those Sun Tunnel type skylights so they still have interior lighting entering the room.
They worked Great for me on several jobs.

Some guys are suggesting that I rebuild these skylights. I would rather use a factory made skylight. The design they have has aluminum trim against the glass and it’s sealed with caulk. I don’t feel that the design is dependable enough. One of them would need new glass because it has a broken seal.
