It’s somewhat of an understatement to say my family is obsessed with north-facing windows.
On the hunt for a new house recently in Adelaide, my parents basically got a car and cruised along seeking FOR SALE signs on the Port Wakefield side of each west-east oriented street in suburbs of interest. Perhaps I’m exaggerating somewhat….but they did exclude anything in their internet and newspaper searches without a north-facing rear. For my Mum, and also for me, having windows which let in low arc winter sun is crucial to ensure optimal mental health through the dark winter months. For some, this could even play a role in preventing Seasonal Affective Disorder.
It’s also damned handy for drying the washing.
