Hi,
I would like to make a shade/ cover for my skylight,
I love the sunshine, but with the hot summer sun running up my PG&E bill, I'm trying to find way to block the sun for at lease part of the time.
Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance, Cindy

Hmmmm, good question. I have one too and you're right it puts out heat from the reflections. Ours comes through an attic then upper story closet into the main living area.

Can't you just take off the "cover" and put some dark paper or fabric inside temporarily?

Hi Lennie,
That would be a good idea, but my ceilings are 12 foot high, and it is over the island in the kitchen, to high to climb and Iím not sure if standing on the island is a good thing to do :nervous:
