Love the philosophy, Melonie. Can you tell me what skylight you recommend using for a townhouse ( attached to other town house) facing south ( in attempt to capture the beautiful vista) that is lacking of natural lights especially downstairs ( on the slope area so it's like ground floor) ? Just like your pictures here, except the house has a flat roof. Where are you based?

Sorry for slow reply! We use Velux skylights where we are using standard skylights. Important to note that if it is a flat roof, the skylight will sit at a different angle to the roof as even the low profile skylights are still pitched at 5deg. We are based in Willoughby, Sydney Australia
