A “roof lantern” style skylight is planned for the kitchen in Tilly’s Cottage. I’ve heard lots of different terms for these windows but whatever you call it, I think they’re great devices for flooding a room with natural light — particularly in my case where the site in long and narrow and there aren’t many options for windows.
A recurring theme to my posts has, unfortunately, been what I hope to include in the renovation versus what I can actually afford. I really hope that this isn’t one of those items that has to be cut from the budget. I know I’ll spend a lot of time in my kitchen as it will likely double as an office from time-to-time. And this is one feature of the extension that I’m most excited about.
