There are several companies out there now offering tubular skylights but the reason I picked this one to show is that the video shows its basic functions but also the fact it has a dimmer feature and LED light installation available means you only need to install one setup. Often you end up with skylights running alongside another set of lights. Having this type of unit allows everything to be in one which is not only more economical but its also better cosmetic wise on your shipping container home. I came across these style of skylights mainly on large corporate buildings I was involved in previously to help reduce electrical costs on the buildings. Introducing redirected sunlight saves companies fortunes on electricity at the same time why can’t it be saving us all a bit of money? I would recommend looking at adding in skylights into any shipping container home design. If your going into a multi levelled home its also worth looking into ways of moving the light down inside the cavity walls that are less obtrusive than tubes that may not fit inside the cavities. Using fibre optics is a good way to get light to travel inside walling and worth a scout round the internet net for information on gathering light from skylights for your shipping container home to move the light to other parts. This gets things away from having to be directly below where the skylights sit making it more practical.
ALSO BEFORE ORDERING ANY SKYLIGHT MAKE SURE ITS SUITABLE FOR A SHIPPING CONTAINER FLAT ROOF AS MANY ARE DESIGNED FOR PITCHED ROOFS.
