Classical Feng Shui
Before you start analysing your plot and property with Classical Feng Shui methods. You need to draw an accurate floor plan for each floor of your home. Follow these instructions.
You will need:
- Graph Paper
- Tape Measure
1. Measure the length and width of room.
2. Draw onto the graph paper using the large squares for each metre/foot.
3. Measure the next room
4. Draw onto the graph paper using large squares per metre. Here lines represent solid walls.
5. Measure the length and widths of all built in fixtures such as all interior and exterior stairs, doors and windows and add to your plan.
6. Ensure you measure the correct distance along the wall for all parts e.g. The example shows three measurements when looking at the window on the exterior wall (measure wall/window/wall).
7. Add these onto your plan.
8. Create a key on a separate piece of paper to show the meaning of your symbols. N.B. Keep them simple
- Door with left hinge
- Door with right hinge
