It’s a great feeling when you fix something around the house without having to call a professional, but there are definitely some do-it-yourself projects that will cause more trouble they are worth, and here’s a big one:
We love unsolicited endorsements of skylights and here’s a great blog we found recently by Michelle B. entitled “every little thing” found on blogspot. She recently added a Sun Tunnel to a bathroom with no window and posted a great photo of it on the blog (along with some other really beautiful rooms using skylights). Here’s an excerpt from her blog and the link:
just a fancy new word for “skylight”, that’s all.
we put one in our main bathroom that completely lacked natural light…a bad design
in the old style home we live in where
the main bathroom is in the centre of the house.
i cannot really believe the difference it makes…! gavin calls it the “blue light” because at night that’s the way it looks.
it’s got a frosted glass cover so you can’t actually see up inside it or the crusty pine needles and dry leaves that could potentially land on the outer surface.
on the inside, it’s a cylinder surrounded in insulated tin-foil-ish stuff. super duper reflective…and amazingly bright!!
and because my bathroom also lacks style and flair, for now
here’s a little peek at what is looks like…mind the terrible photography on this one!
we are adding one to our kitchen tomorrow!
