The natural light is refreshing. There are mini blinds that allow you to control how much light you need. As you can see in the photos the windows are approximately 8’ long and 2’ high.

There is also a rod holder section in the ceiling close to the windshield. The windshield has a mesh screen in place and can be removed for additional lighting.
