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!

  • 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
