dark interiors during framing
Framing is almost complete and the windows just went in. My concern is that the rear part of the house which actually faces South appears to be dark even though it gets lots of natural light. We have 3 windows in the kitchen, a 6ft wide slider and 2 windows in the family room all facing South. There is at least an 80 ft distance from the back of the house to a line of tall trees. My question is if it's normal to feel this way during framing since the walls are not reflecting light and the windows have a protective film? Should I consider putting in transom windows at this point to add more light(after making cuts elsewhere to fit this in the budget)?
