Tubular Skylights

There's no view of the sky and no direct sunlight, but they promise an easy installation and natural light for less than $200

Tubular skylights are a quick and economical way to get natural light into your home. Natural light is free, and getting a good dose of natural light has been shown to improve mood, work performance, and attention spans; it even can counteract the affects of seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Fine Homebuilding assistant editor John Ross takes a look at tubular skylights, their installation process, and some of the accessories that can enhance one of these devices.
