Vastu Guidelines For The Stages of Construction

Vastu Shastra lays down guidelines on the ‘design, location, direction and disposition of a house and its interior spaces’, so as to create a well-designed and aesthetic house in which the inmates experience happiness, contentment, peace and serenity. Though your building plan may be good, it does not mean the house construction will be easy. Very often people face difficulties and delays in the completion of the building. Vastu Shastra provide basic tips for the different stages of house construction which are believed to guarantee a hassle-free, smooth build. 


Vastu Shastra lays down guidelines based on scientific reasoning and common sense, on the different stages of Construction, so as to enable you to go through this process without any hassles. As an Architect practising in India,  I have been asked by my clients whether the vastu guidelines regarding rituals performed before, during and after the start of construction (Bhoomi pooja, griha pravesha etc) have any scientific basis. To that I say, they give you positivism and psychologically, you feel that you have sent away the old spirits dwelling in that space so that you can start a new, fresh life. I have explained the scientific basis of these guidelines here:

    hello sir
    I want to know that we have Constructed new house with East facing main door , question is opposite of main door we have a well located , so I want to know whether it’s a good sign not not, give me it advantage and disadvantage
    Hi Prashant,
    It is generally not advisable to have an obstruction in front of the main door. The movement to and from the main door should be unobstructed. So you can probably cover the well with a concrete cover or a grill at ground level (to prevent anyone from falling in) and remove the walls around it.

    Triangle plot is right for vastu.
    Hi Ashutosh,
    Not ideal as per vastu, as a recgtangular house in it will mean a lot of waste of space all around and you will get small rooms if it is a small plot.

    Hello Sir, we recently purchased a west facing house. West is higher than east. there is a lot open space in east hence we get good morning sunlight. I really like the house but the bedroom is in the north east. I placed my bed towards west. Any remedy for this room. I have two small kids and generally they both sleep in this master bedroom. My hubby sleeps in south room. still want to know some remedies for this north east master bedroom.
    Hi Ashita,
    If you like this house so much, why are you looking for problems? Anyhow, as a solution, make the NE room your kids room and the bedroom in the south, your master bedroom. Anyhow, your husband sleeps there. So it should not be big change for you.

    Hi Latha,
