this isn't a bad idea that I will keep in my back pocket. My wife is already about to kill me with what we are spending on the outdoor pavilion, stamped concrete etc.

The thought was inspired by the British TV shows my wife and I have been watching lately (Room for Improvement). There is one Architect (Dermot) who is obsessed with creating little courtyards inside the home, surrounded by glass and no roof. I always think of roofing the space with glass like a conservatory and having it the space still inside the home, complete with all the incoming light.

You could even make it her own private space if that would help!
