Presently, I trust that every one of us should have a decent auto that should take us wherever we need, at whatever time we need and simply the way we need (lavishly). In this modern world, whether we own or rent a house, the most predominant thing we look for is a portico. Nowadays, owning a car or bike is a common thing, so providing a separate area for car parking is a must. Hence, before constructing a car parking, certain vastu rules have to be considered. Making use of some vastu rules makes your house better. Generally, we can construct a car parking by providing a separate space within the house or making use of some space in the building itself.
According To Andal Vastu - Car Parking:
- Now, if we provide a separate garage it should be constructed at the north-west, south-east or south-west part of the house.
- Never set the garage at the north-east part of the house and the most important thing we should follow is that the garage construction should not touch the compound wall and the building. It should be constructed separately.
- Next, if we can provide the portico space as a part of the building, it should not come at the north-east part of the building.
- Be careful not to construct any pillar or any supporting structure from the roof level to the ground level of the building for the car portico, because it will extend the particular corner of the house. Instead make a cantilever type extension as you need from the roof level of the building, so that it does not need any supporting structure.
- The final important thing is that never choose the basement of the building for car parking.
Septic tanks are often made randomly with no consideration, which however, causes various problems to occupants. The concept of septic individual tank in the house was invented few decades ago and now it is a necessity. The pit for septic is usually dug in the ground which according to Vastu should be done with caution as any discrepancy could lead to negativity, thus making the environment polluted.
According to Andal Vastu:
- Septic tank should be built at the north-west portion of the house.
- Make sure that septic tank should not be at the north- east, south-east and south -west.
- Make sure the drainage pipes in the toilet and the bathroom have their passage in the West or North-west direction.
- Septic tank should be outside the house, but inside the compound wall. Also it should not touch the compound wall and the other wall.
- It should always be constructed at the ground level and must not touch the main wall of the house i.e., the compound wall.
- Make sure that the drainage pipes in the toilet and the bathroom have their passage in the West or the North-west direction.
- Avoid drainage pipes in Southern portion of the house and if it has been made, then ensure that their passage should be made in the East or the North direction.
