After having purchased an auspicious plot for making your dream home, the next step should be to seek Vastu advice for building construction which you intend to so on that piece of land. Following Vastu advice for building construction can convert a not so favourable plot into a favourable one. The first and foremost step is to make a plan of the layout of the building on paper. Then Vastu tips should be followed step by step as the construction work progresses.
• Remove all thorny bushes, stones, holes in the ground etc before commencing construction work on the plot of land.
• Make sure to remove the junk or trash from the construction site immediately.
• There should be no break in construction work and the work should continue constantly.
• Night time should be avoided for construction; it is best done during daytime.
• Before starting to construct the house, the compound wall should be erected.
Here are a few important Vastu advice for building construction which should be kept in mind while getting construction work done for a house.
Construction material– Never use old materials for constructing a new building. Wood from thorny trees should also be avoided. The doors and door frames should be made out of the same material, like an iron door should have an iron frame and not anything else.
Storage of materials-There has to be a storage room at the construction site for storing cement bags and other construction materials. Since storage makes the space heavy, the area chosen for storing stuffs should be in the southwest, south or west directions.
Excavation– the land should be excavated from the northeast corner as per Vastu. It should then proceed towards east, north, south and then west.
Water sump– The northeast, north or the east should have the water sources on the plot. Southwest, southeast and northwest directions should be completely avoided for positioning the water sources. It is even inauspicious to place the water sump in the middle of the plot.
Laying foundation-The southwest corner should be chosen for laying down the foundation work of the structure, proceeding towards northwest and southeast and then from northwest and southeast to north east.
Entrance door– A positive direction should be chosen for the entrance door, away from the corners. These include north, northeast and east in case of north and east facing plots and southeast and south in case of south facing plots. For west facing plots, it should be west and northwest. The entrance door in any house should not be more than two.
