My room faces the east so every morning, I have the sun to wake me up with its light. Aside from the morning sun, my room also faces our back yard, which contains a number of fruit-bearing trees that are home to birds. Depending on the weather, my morning view is largely pleasant, and awesome.
When I build my dream house, I would opt to use capiz windows, in spite of many modern alternatives. Why? Because I like the way light passes through the material. Have you seen it? The photo below does not do it justice. I cherish simple objects of beauty. I think everyone should.
