Why Midwestern Homes Do Sun Rooms But Not Rooms with Roof Lanterns

    While I have not traveled to the UK (it is tops on my radar) I wonder why it seems the UK invests more in skylights and conservatories than we do here in America.

    I love the light from a roof lantern and architectural style yet I never see roof lanterns used in the Midwestern part of the United States where I live. I have to wonder why?

    Why are we in the dark with regards to the beauty and function of roof lanterns?

      I was checking out some roof lanterns...sounds so much better than sky lights..there are some great designs. I know the problem in the past was water leaks, or not having a good enough design to support snow loads.. it looks like new designs are manufactured to withstand both.
