When buying a house many practioners take the position of the front door into account. The front door protects the house and its inhabitants. Many believe that a well-position front door increases wealth, happiness, longlife and good health.
The front door should be in scale with the house- too large a door will lead to financial issues, too small leads to arguments. The front door should not face a dead end street because it will not allow ch'i to circulate. Ideally the front door should be placed toward the left hand side of the building. A front door in the center is also acceptable, but you should avoid a property with a right handed main door.
Main Doors facing a hill could result in difficulties at work or a business loss.
Practioners also avoid homes with trees planted directly in front of the front door. They believe that the yin in the tree(nature) will block the yang entering the house and the tree will also send additional yin into the home.
