Here is a photograph of the inner workings of the sun-pipe that will be lighting the kitchen.
- The round port-hole on the right is the small window on the roof.
- The round opening on the ground, carefully placed to avoid the joists, is the place that the sunlight will be channelled to.
- The silver circle with the red tape is actually the concertinaed sun-tube that will join the two windows. It is a kind of duct, a bit like the tube for a vacuum cleaner but much larger.
BUT, as this room will be my daughter’s bedroom, and the room below is the kitchen and the kitchen table and chairs will be in this corner, we are wondering about a Wallace & Gromit style style chute to the chair below as featured in the “Wrong Trousers” film! 😉
