Whether we own our own home or apartment or live in rented accommodations, we can use the principles which follow to create a living space in which we feel comfortable. If we are on the verge of moving or are in the fortunate position of having acquired a piece of land to design and build our own home upon, here are some important considerations to make.
When we assess a location, we need to look into its natural phenomena, its immediate environment, positive and negative aspects of the location.
|Natural Phenomena||Immediate Environment||Positive Aspects||Negative aspects|
|Wind directions||Proposed road development||Local amenities||Factories|
|Sun direction||Proposed building development||Trees||Petrol stations|
|Rainfall||Land use plans||Street lighting||All- night cafes|
|Flood area||Previous land use||Good street maintenance||Pubs and discos|
|Geological faults||Tree preservations orders||Community spirit||Police stations|
|Soil type||Local architecture||Local shops||Fire stations|
|Height above sea level||Neighbours predecessors||Schools, clubs||Airports|
|Cemeteries and crematoriums|
|Motorways and highways|
Our environment makes a psychological impact on us, whatever we see, hear or smell will make an impression. So choose your location of your home appropriately to bring in the positiveness in you. Happy Home !!!
