“So from that room you get a view out of the front and out the back garden and this light can then come into the house.”
Angela asked Robert: “Should we all just get rid of our conservatories?”
Robert said the couple’s conservatory hadn’t been designed by an architect but had been “purchased off the peg”.
He suggested: “Think about where it’s [the conservatory] going. Is your garden north facing? East, south, west or somewhere in between?”
Angela said: “If you dream of a sun-drenched conservatory then meticulous planning is vital to make sure you don’t accidentally end up blocking the light to the rest of the house.
“Before you invest, do a bit of lateral thinking. There might be a cunning way to get the effect you crave without adding to your home’s footprint at all.”
