THINGS TO REMEMBER BEFORE STARTING THE CONSTRUCTION
Before starting the construction one must be totally prepared. There are Vastu guidelines that can be followed for the safe completion of the construction of the house.
Determination of site orientation
The direction of the site should be studied well before the construction start with the help of a compass. If the axis does not show to be parallel to the earth’s magnetic axis then the angle of tilt is to be considered. The corners of the plot should be 90 degrees and the compound wall should be laid only after the proper placement of the corners.
Clearing the site
The site should be cleared and cleaned before starting the construction. All kinds of stone, dirt, debris, bushes, thorns, etc should be ejected and thrown away.
After clearing the site the first ritual to be performed before the construction is started, is to conduct Vastu pooja or Bhoomi Pooja. This ritual should be conducted at the auspicious time set by the astrologer. The pooja should be to the North East corner of the plot. The pooja is not done if any lady in the house is pregnant. This ritual is performed is to give the owner psychological confidence that this huge task of building the house can be accomplished without any worries or problems as the site has been blessed. Avoiding the pooja during pregnancy is to assure rest to the lady as the ritual requires sitting on the ground, which may be painful for her.
