I am living in house in which the sun is not overlooking through the window at all, Is there a way to make overlook at least partially inside the house.

    I'm not sure if your question really has a practical answer. Put in new windows or a skylight? Do you have a solid door that you could replace with one containing a window? Put a bunch of angled mirrors in your yard aimed at your windows?

1 Answer 1


Tubular skylights, a suntube in use and available from Solatube. There's roofing and carpentry involved but no framing needed. They're the only way to have a skylight with an attic above without blowing out your ceiling. Cut 2 holes, flash it to the roof, enjoy.
