Vastu for Construction of House


As you have bought a plot for your dream home, Vastu provides principles for construction of house. By following these principles, you can make an inauspicious plot auspicious. At first make a plan on paper regarding layout of the building, excavation, foundation concrete, brick work, doors and windows frame etc.

Before starting construction, the land should be cleared of thorny plants, bushes, stones, holes in the ground. The trash should be removed from construction site. Construction should be done constantly, that is, there is no break in construction work. Daytime is good for construction work, avoid it in the night. Compound walls should be built before construction of house. Here are given principles for right construction of the house.  

Construction Material: Only new material should be used for building.  Old material which is not durable should not be used for new construction as generally old bricks, doors; steel bars and plumbing material are used in new construction.  Wood taken from thorny trees should not be used. As per Vastu rules same material should be used for doors and their frames that is iron doors are made of iron frames rather that wooden frames and wooden doors are made of wooden frames instead of iron frames. 

Storage of Material: Store room is necessary at construction site for storing materials like cement bags. Storage makes the room heavy so it should be in southwest, south or west direction

Excavation: As per Vastu, excavation of land should commence from northeast corner and proceed towards the East, North, South and then West direction.

Water Sump: Water source in the plot is auspicious in northeast, north or east directions as northeast is place of water. Avoid it in southwest, southeast and northwest directions. Water sump in the middle of house is inauspicious.  

Laying Foundation: Foundation work should start from southwest corner and proceed towards northwest and southeast and then from southeast and northwest to northeast. 

Entrance Door: Entrance door should be in positive direction and far away from corners. Positive directions are North, Northeast, and East in East and North facing plot, Southeast and South in South facing plot, West and Northwest in West facing plot. There should be one or maximum two entrance doors in a house.

General Tips for House Construction

  • Master bedroom should be in the Southwest of the house.

Fengshui means the Law of Heaven and Earth. Feng means wind and Shui means Water. It believes in the balance of yin and yang (the two opposites) and a balance between Heaven and Earth. Chinese saw wind and water as the intermediaries between heaven and earth.
