Passive Solar Heating

20130513 044Free from the sun, another reason why I like it to be More Like May.  Because we face due north, the sun streams into the house warming the polished concrete floors making the house warm enough not to need the fire, even when it is below 10 degrees outside.  This photo was taken just before 10am and in 6 weeks when the sun is at its lowest point in the sky, the sun will reach more than half the floor of the house which is 15m wide and only  7.5m deep.
