Deep eaves vs. sun?
The house we're purchasing to remodel has deep eaves - about 3' (1 m) directly above the top of the windows (its a one story house). It's summer now and given the angle of the sun, not much light comes directly in the house, which we want. These windows face south.
I'm assuming as winter comes and the sun sinks further in the southern horizon that we'll get more sun inside the house, but maybe not. We're trying to figure out if we'll need skylights or not. Can anyone comment on this idea? Thanks!
