I feel pretty ridiculous even typing this sentence, but I'm seriously considering buying a twin mattress and dedicating my walk-in closet as my 'night shift sleeping space' as the only windowless room in the house. I've tried every light-blocking 'blackout shade' technology I can think of, and I can't get my bedroom room dark enough; I love night shift on the whole, but this lack of sleep is driving me nuts. Have any other fellow night shifters resorted to sleeping in equally bizarre places?
I think my dream home would have a small, windowless den or office where I could sleep anytime I want. Why isn't this a thing?

I've heard of foil to keep lite out. My personal favorite and what I felt best : Poster board in windows. (The tall, white cardboard ones commonly found at science fairs). Then I graduated to cardboard boxes, flattened out and bent or cut small enough to use only the window frame & Box where most effective.
It may not look the nicest, but sleep and safety are the priority; Hopefully any neighbors get that.
