Season 3 episode 8 features the ever present problem of how to bring natural light into your home. In Wales Darren and Tracey built a North facing addition on their home which never receives any direct sunlight. Some simple solutions were reflecting balls, a thin acrylic reflector, and the Sunflower Heliostat. Though the heliostat may look a bit “space age” as Darren mentions in the episode, it was the couples favorite lighting option!

By directing the sunlight to a specific area, it will be illuminated for as long as the sun is shining!
