Well I don't have a chicken house or a shed, so I guess I'll have to pass!

Well since the end of the world as we know it is coming at the end of the year, perhaps it will be something you can use then. smile.gif

I guess I missed that memo. Why is the world coming to an end?

Interesting.  The things we take for granted here.

I'm trying to figure out how the bottles are suspended. I assume the roof leaks, too, because I can't see a great way to seal around the bottle. However, it is an interesting idea. I wonder if I could put a row of bottles on a window sill and get a similar effect.

freezing bottles of water in my holey roof.....no thanks lol

 

definately is a warmer climate solution, but for people to receive natural light indoors where they wouldn't normally be able to do so is great. I'm envisioning bed-ridden people who haven't seen the light of day in ages, can only imagine how such a simple item could make a world of difference to them. Although I do wonder why they haven't installed multiples of these, or sheets of this plastic in the ceilings before. Although I guess they probably do.

It essentially is just a miniature skylight, so would be installed much the same way I would imagine, the water just allowing the light to reach a broader area than a shaft of light.

 

We've done bottles of water with some food coloring in them on the window sills before. I don't know that it extended the area the light reached, but it sure was pretty.

I would totally do this in the chicken coop - but I can see winter (when you'd need it most) being a bit of a problem.
