What Direction Should My New Home Face?

Let’s face it, the direction your home faces will be your choice, when you choose to build a new home from the ground up! So what do we need to take into consideration?


  • Do you like to grow indoor plants?
  • Do you prefer your sleeping quarters to be cooler or warmer?
  • Do you like to watch storms blow in?
  • Do you like open windows for fresh air?
  • Are you energy conscious?
  • Do you want to live on a lake or waterfront property?
