Good Questions

Q: I just bought my first home and am having a huge problem with all the windows - they let in a ton of light. I'd like to find a permanent solution (not window coverings of any kind) that keeps sunlight out. Or, has anyone ever installed a boat porthole in a house before?

I saw this one online the other day, and I'm drawn to the brass detailing. But I've never sealed up existing windows before, or cut holes in drywall for a new window. Any advice you can give a newbie and help a guy out?
