A daylight-themed home

When Brendan and Nicole McGlinch decided to remodel an old ranch home, they knew one thing for sure: it needed plenty of naturel light and fresh air.

Brendan, who works for his family's home renovation business, McGlinch & Sons Home Improvements, built the home himself, minus the brick and cement work. He is also a VELUX 5-Star Skylight Specialist and had ideas for a unique skylight installation.

The kitchen is the center of an open plan that connects the dining, living and family rooms. He positioned the skylights in a straight line across the roof ridge, creating a long shaft of light inside. 

"It's amazing to me to take a space that's typically dark and once you put a skylight in and just to walk into the room and feel it open and airy ande bright; it just makes the overall mood happier," he said.

Now the kitchen is truly the heart of the home.
