Weldon & Jo Ann – VELUX Sun Tunnels – Columbia MO

Weldon and Jo Ann love natural light. Their home had nice windows but the light did not reach into the core of their house, specifically into their dining room. The second location was the master bath, it was really dark because there were no windows! Their condo on a golf course had a shared fire wall between the units which prevent windows. A VELUX Sun Tunnel is typically the best solution for this challenge.

Dave L – Solar Electric – Columbia, MO


Dave was interested in using part of a field to harvest another type of crop, electricity! We installed the solar panels for this installation just outside of Columbia, MO. Utilizing the existing electric service to the barn helped in keeping the cost low. An added benefit of ground mount solar installation is the space underneath. Dave plans to use it for shade for a picnic table as well as store firewood and his lawn tractor.

Peter & Lea – VELUX Sun Tunnels – Columbia MO

Lea loves natural light. She has remodeled their home several times over the years and each time brought more light in through vertical windows. All three of their bathrooms were still dark and could not have windows added due to their location in the home. We added a 14″ sun tunnel in the master bathroom and a 10″ sun tunnel in each of the other full bathrooms. The impact was dramatic and she can now “winter” her plants in the upstairs bathroom with the abundant natural light.

Paul C – Solar Electric – Columbia, MO


These pictures are from phase one of an install we did for Paul on his detached garage in the Old Southwest area of Columbia, MO. His garage had a south facing roof with limited shading from mature trees. Although this offset a significant portion of his electric use, he hired us again in 2015 to add an additional 1.1 kW to get him a Near Zero electric bill on an average annual basis.

Tony – VELUX Sun Tunnels – Columbia MO

Tony saw one of our “before & after” pictures from another sun tunnel installation in Columbia, MO and instantly knew the dark spaces in his house that needed help. The kid’s bathroom had no windows and was in need of more light. The kitchen had windows on the west but much of the light reaching the kitchen was blocked due to a nice screened porch off the kitchen. The use of a sun tunnel brought the light to the spaces that needed it most.

One in each of her upstairs bathrooms.
