An approved plan is necessary for every new construction. If the plan is as per Vastu Shastra, it is immediately acceptable and there are several instances that have proved that the construction work progresses rapidly.
One of the foremost principles of construction work is that it should not be done in a hurry. Creating a building involves a large sum of money and effort. Therefore even a trifle mistake can ruin all the plans and dreams. So it is advisable that an individual waits for the right and auspicious time and then start the construction work. Once the work starts, there should be no break in it. The construction work should be stopped after sunset and working at night must be definitely avoided.
The mason should look up towards the south and then stop work. This will prove beneficial for the owner of the house. An outhouse in the south-west corner must also be built for keeping the building material. Out-house can also be built in the south-east corner leaving a margin of at least 2-3 feet from the east and the south directions. The watchman should preferably live in the southeast out-house. If he is in the north-west out-house, there is always a danger of theft. If the watchman is kept in the south-west out-house, they try to override the owner. Of course, it is advantageous, to build the outhouse, immediately after the construction of the well. the main building should be constructed only after the construction of the compound wall.
While building the house the advice of a professional is always useful. The concerned person can always put in his expert opinion, for instance, the exact requirement of steel to be used. These kinds of advices must always be taken into account.
