Bring in the Light!

Natural light is so important to how a home feels. When a home is bright and airy, it just feels cleaner, more cozy, and freeing (or am I the only one that feels constricted or trapped in dark spaces?).

Here’s a new idea to help bring more light into your home: side porches.

This home has a cut-out in the middle to allow for a side porch on the main floor, and the cut-out continues all the way up the second floor, but instead of being covered on the second floor there are additional windows.

This allows a central staircase, but still having light flood the stairwell rather than being enclosed by rooms on all sides.

Anyone else want to throw those double sliding doors wide open to allow fresh air to permeate all through the home (with the screening on the other side keeping out the bugs)?
