Sun Pipe Solves Problem Of A Dark Kitchen
James Shephard, Valdez, Alaska: A Sun Pipe solved the problem of a dark kitchen corner in James's log cabin (The Sun Pipe Co., ph 800 844-4786; www.sunpipe.com). "It's a solar tube that pulls light down from the roof. Of course it works only during daylight conditions but it eliminates the need to turn on the lights during the day. Nature pays the power bill. It consists of a silver-coated pipe 9, 13, or 21 inches in diameter with a dome on top and diffuser dome at the base. The pipe can be just about any length. It comes with good instructions for do-it-yourself installation and is reasonably priced."
