Well Ron, I think you’ll find that when you have no power, and a work area like you have, you will fight for every scrap of ‘quality’ light you can get. The light entering the main doors looks real nice for side lighting, great to see how a finish is smoothing out or to check for surface defects. The windows (and candles! nice touch!) seem to be all you have for task lighting. Clin’s suggestions for skylights or other overhead lights would be well worth considering.

I’m kinda in the same boat as Clin. About 500 square ft. lit by 24 fluorescent (now LED) tubes.
I think the thing is that if you have power available you will use it. It makes a big difference when you want to work after dark or need more light than nature provides.

I do envy the total quietness you must enjoy!
