I am looking to build a home in the distant future and am looking for advice on some ways for when building the home to make it more comfortable in the Halakhic sense.

examples of ideas I had so far:

  • building a solar heated water tank in order to use hot water on Shabbat (or some other idea of a similar nature)
  • building a halakhic mechitza next to a toilet so I can wash nagelvasser in the bathroom.
  • building a pergola/deck combo attached to house or something to make sukkah building easier and more comfortable


Any ideas, or suggestions would be great!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Note the solar heated water tank still creates issues of bishul, cooking the water when mixing cold and hot water. See e.g., here and here for a possible solution – mbloch Mar 19 at 9:13
