I'm curious what are the Halachic considerations that need to be taken into account when building a house.
A few possibilities that come to mind may include:
- position of the bathroom (Rambam, Hilchot Beis Habechirah 7:9)
- position of the bedroom (Rambam, Hilchot Beis Habechirah 7:9)
- clearing the area of fruit bearing trees
- putting a fence around porches and roofs
- placement of bathroom sinks (perhaps it is preferable to have them out of toilet area, if the option exists)
What else? Is there a Sefer that goes through the Halachot involved with building a house?
