Position of Kitchen as per Vasthu
i found some comments regarding vasthu on your site
that kitchen should be in east south corner
is there any problem in it being in north
because if u read kanippayurs interview he recommends north for kitchen
if you don't mind to look at the rough sketch as attachment
what's your comment
awaiting for your valuable suggestions
and this is a plan i liked and believes best aesthetic for my plot
does it conflict with vasthu
thank you for sharing your knowledge
because i am getting conflicting views regarding vasthu
Vasthu is a proper science based on scientific studies done by our forefathers.
Unfortunately that part of Vasthu which explains why certain effects are occurring is lost by not properly documenting the knowledge
What we now know is the effects of Vasthu factors.These are fortunately well documented and is available in books.You do not have to simply follow what some one who claim to know vasthu says.There has to be a logic in what he says..Many people simply believe or accept without any reason whatever some people says.I cannot do anything about it.
North east is Esaanakonam which is ideal location for well,sump tank etc.This area should be lower from other areas for better effect.Esaanakonam is also ideal for Pooja room.Hence this konam should be kept tidy and neat for better prosperity.Kitchen at North East is not good as per Vasthu
South East is Agni konam.Agni konam is the ideal place for Kitchen.If you have a bed room at South east,persons living in that room will have continuous problems and no prosperity.
Your plan is just a few lines drawn by you.While spending lakhs of rupees for building a house,why cant you pay few thousands to get the most appropriate plan by a good Architect? Getting the most appropriate professionally designed plan of the house is the most important part of the building construction.Only an expert knows the implications of a plan.Then why should you pretend to be an expert and loose your own money?
Renovation of existing house
This is Thomas from Bahrain. Hope you remember me . i contacted you regarding the renovation of my old house.all my friends are suggesting that renovation cost will be almost same like making a new house.Actually my requirement is 2 Bed room with attached bathroom,hall with dining ,sit out,car park, kitchen, work area in the ground floor and 2 bed room with attach bath room and balcony in the first floor. i would like to know approximately how much it will cost me . the reason i am asking this because i am a normal NRI with limited income.can you can help me in this subject ?at least to finish the structure work .waiting for your reply
An Architect/Engineer is not an Astrologer
A person qualified and experienced in any branch of Engineering prepare an expected cost statement called Estimate by Engineering calculations with the help of data available
How can I predict cost If you simply say that you require so many rooms?
Whether the existing building is worth modifying or not I can say only after seeing existing building
When you delay construction even by one day,you are making house construction costly as cost of material and labour go up every day in Kerala.Even if you have only Rs.5 lakhs with you today,start with that money.Waiting for entire money to reach you will result in waiting for the house forever.
Comment on my blog post
Sunder has left a new comment on your post "Desire for lower price for construction":
It is an excellent article by a genuine Architect who understands the fallacy of the insistence of cost per sq. feet concept by the customers. It is an eye-opener really. Thanks a lot.
Thank you Sundararajan for your encouraging comments.
Construction of House In two cents of land
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Queries and replies-House Design and construction":
Is it possible to construct a house within 2 cents of land?
Cents is only area of the land and it does not give any idea on frontage and depth of plot.If these dimensions are good enough,Construction of house in 2 cents of land is possible.But the design will have to be within the limitations of the plot.
Sir, i saw your website.I understood some details of concrete. I wish
to know about all the details of concrete mixing,proportions, steel
laying and curing.
My residence at Kollam(not coastal area).
Thanking you in anticipation.
How can I teach you all those by a blog entry.? I have explained on various aspects of house construction in a simple non technical language in my blogs.To know more about the technology you have to be professionally trained.
