For a place 4x4 Ama, what should the walls of a dwelling be to obligate the place in Mezuzah:

  • How many walls are required?
  • Can they be partially or completely transparent?
  • What height should they be?
  • Are workarounds that count as Mechitzah (Lovud, Gud Asik) good as walls?
  • Should there be a roof?
  • How much of the space should the roof cover?
  • How far can the roof be from the walls?
  • Are you speaking of a fixed dwelling? Is that a theoretical question or do you have some sort of dwelling in mind? – mbloch Nov 12 '19 at 17:41
  • @mbloch if you remember my previous question (about Succah) I'm trying to understand what counts as a "dwelling" in Judaism in different applications. – Al Berko Nov 12 '19 at 17:56
  • Check the Kitzur chapter 11 – sam Nov 12 '19 at 17:59
  • There is a sefer on hilchos mezuzah, חובת הדר (or something similar), that should go through all of these points. – Mordechai Nov 14 '19 at 23:36
