Day 12. Winter sun

In August 2012 on August 24, 2012 at 12:21 pm

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.

  1. Here in Paris and on the hunt for a new apartment, it is all about south facing windows! Your blog is making me realise how much we are turning into our parents!

  2. A sunny aspect essential for afternoon naps with a newborn! Insist on it.
