Roof lanterns

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.

While both of my magazine clippings show roof lanterns that are much bigger than my own will be (to accompany my teeny weensy kitchen), I hope that mine will be just as appealing. Can’t wait.
