Cheap skylights

I think that this could be interesting to try:

Re: Cheap skylights

I've seen stories where they do this sort of thing for lighting in third world countries.

Re: Cheap skylights

Good idea, I wonder if the water is necessary though.

Re: Cheap skylights

I have thought of trying this myself, but haven't yet.  I like the idea.  :thumbsup:

I think that the water is supposed to give it a greater "prism" effect. Just like the foil gives more intense reflective properties.

Just a question for the more knowledgable ones here...would silvery duct work/dryer venting tube work instead of the foil? I don't know the proper name of that stuff... I know it would cost more, but would it reflect more or less?

We are currently trying to figure out how to build a nice call duck house/pen for 2 and I think that we will try this out in it. We should only need one in such a small area.

Re: Cheap skylights

Yes, the water diffuses the light and sends it out in multiple directions.  There are also pictures of sticking a flashlight onto a water bottle for a quick camping lamp.
