The side windows provide enough light in the bedroom and the bathroom has an outside door window. I still have 4 natural light (not bright white) 650Lumin LEDs in the 2 bathroom ceiling fixtures (DW request), 2 in the bedroom ceiling fixture, to see in the closets. They are actually brighter than the skylight. Since the prototypes work, I will now cover them with contact paper, to make them look good.
How do they work you ask? PERFECTLY!!!! No heat passes through them.
They even keep the COLD out in the winter. You would probably pay $20+ for store bought inserts. Home Depot has a 4x8x3/4" insulation board for around $15, you can glue the remainder of the board to the underside of the bed for those cold winter nights...
It will be on my list of Things To Do. I am also thinking of just painting over them or pouring a sealer over the entire sky light(s).
