I believe the roof is cement barrel. I am thinking of purchasing a house with this style roof and want to add more natural light. Is it possible?

Just for clarification -- do you mean that the roof has cement or clay S or "Barrel Vault" tiles, or do you mean that the roof has an actual cast-in-place cement roof that is vaulted in a rounded barrel shape? – Karl Katzke Feb 25 '14 at 20:59
