    I live in a cupboard office, they felt a little sorry for me so they put a window in the roof above me, its really nice, I get loads of natural light now.

    Anyone remember 'Andy Peters Broom Cupboard'? Well, thats my office! Even the cleaners have got a bigger cupboard

    As for natural daylight - that stuff's not good for you! I've seen it in well 5 minutes actually! That was the last time I had an excuse to leave the cupboard and do some work

    Still the fluorescent tube will keep the elec company in business during the height of summer

    Previous cupboard only had an arrow-slot window, for security reasons. Nice big windows now - not much of a view though...

    When we moved into our new office (September 08), the first few weeks I put up large pieces of paper to block out the EXCESS sunlight, as there was so much coming in, that we couldn't see the screens from the reflection! We got blinds eventually, which are always closed because otherwise there would be too much!

    We have a reasonably sized window in our office room, and a huge window (covers 80% of one wall) in our workshop room which is where we get lots and lots of light during the day! Also got a window in our office door which points out to a huge window on the side of the school, which gets sunlight on the other half of the day.

    We used to be in a windowless room, but after H&S involved, they altered a partion wall so we have a window. Next thing you know, they build an extension on reception which is 12 inches in front of our window, so all we can see now is a rendered wall painted the colour of sick

    Not a bad view from my rather nice window.



    We don't suffer from direct sun, and it's really nice getting fresh air in too!

    I got a window to one side overlooking the main road and part of campus so i can watch the kids sneak back in from having a crafty fag under the main road but it does look over some hills as well, and the other side, if i go out of my door and stand in the corridor i overlook some lovely hills as well, a school field, housing estate and school property its a nice place to work the Yorkshire Dales

    I'd love to join in with this but I feel a little context would help...

    Erm... what exactly is this "sun" you speak of?

    I seem to be arriving when it's pre-dawn and leaving when it's well and truly dark of late..

    3 HUGE (6x7) windows in our office so no real complaints
    Though the downside is they make it a greenhouse

    can't wait for the summer.

    We have the PE block oppisite us, they have mirrored windows so if the sun isn't shining directly in the windows reflect it into our window.

    Sometimes it makes it like 4 times brighter, which isn't great on your monitor.
