getting natural light into a single storey extension

3 years ago

I’m planning to build a single storey rear extension for my terrace and would like to get more natural light in. I am trying to avoid using skylights (have heard too many horror stories of leaks) and solar tunnels (no expertise in tunnel installation in my area).
I am thinking of doing a ‘stepped’ metal roof design which allows placement of a row of letterbox windows. This hopefully will allow more light to spill in.
The length of my extension will be around 7 meters wall to wall.

Comments please.
