With the sun shining less over the next several months, natural day lighting in your home might be something you want to think about.
I have a sun roof, so no issues for me.
Several opportunities exist for you though, from the expensive window enlarging, to the installation of “Solar Tubes.”
Another option you might want to look at is removing walls between the more public areas inside your home.
Since the late 1970s and 1980s, most homes are constructed with a truss system which leaves the majority of walls in your home non-weight bearing and allows them to be removed.
The only issue is usually what to do with the flooring where the walls have been.
Have a safe and fulfilling Thanksgiving!
