In Classical Feng Shui, the Eight Mansions House Kua calculation provides insight into the permanent energies of a property, with four favourable and four unfavourable to assist with room location. The Eight Mansions House Kua formula is calculated using the Site and Facing Mountain of your property. The property is divided into eight sectors, each sector has a particular type of chi associated with it. This webpage discusses each sector in detail. Read more details about the Eight Mansions here.
