Window to the Sky
-Tiny B’s product review for the tiny house skylight. Are you planning on installing a skylight or two in your tiny build? This article gives you info on the brand and the benefits of a tiny house skylight. There’s nothing like it, to climb into the tiny house loft and gaze up into the sky.
In the beginning, it started out as a cut out in the framing by www.tinysmarthouse.com

This is a Velux skylight window and it came in the window package for the Willamette Farmhouse model. So, I don't know the retail price to tell ya but I'm sure you can find it online. It's a Velux Integra, Model VS, Deck Mounted Skylight. Dimensions 44 ½ “ x 18 ½” designed for roof pitches 14 to 98 with an energy performance rating. It’s tight. We love it.
Tiny House Skylight by Seasons
If a tiny house stays in the same area for a year, how cool is it that one can watch the change of the seasons from the loft.
The season of Spring is a happy thing, watching clouds roll by and seeing buds popping up from the treetops. Great for nature viewing too – tiny has seen eagles, turkey vultures and many birds fly over.
If you’re a tiny houser... What have you seen peering through your skylight?

Tiny being in the Western region presently, is hot in the Summer so, pinned up a piece of fabric to block the heat (image below). How awesome to use a special gift from a friend who brought me this colorful fabric from the island of Antigua.

Tiny B’s fave season is Fall, and the colors of the trees.

How serene and peaceful to wake up to the clouds softly rolling by or a storm in the winter.

A skylight opens up the space and allows for natural light to flood in.

Watching the cycles of the moon is beyond awesome from a skylight. Star gazing, identifying planets, even seeing meteors go by… and, maybe, even UFOs, lol . . .

A tiny house skylight has got to be one of the greatest benefits when living tiny.
It's great to see the sky again after having a blanket of smoke all summer from the wildfires. Appreciate the skylight and thank our firefighters. ♥
What appliance should Tiny B do for the next Product Review? The frig, oven/stove-top, propane heater, washer/dryer combo or tank-less water heater… Let me know in comments below.
Just reach for the sky . . .
