Extensions in Vastu
According to Vastu, square or rectangular plots are considered best for residential or commercial purposes. But in actual practice we find the plots shapes to be irregular more often than not. The effects of plots extended in different directions or reductions in some comers is of prime concern. It is because of the inherent weakness and imbalance of elements in irregular and extended plots that the Vastu strength in such plots is reduced.
Care should also be undertaken while carrying out extensions in an already constructed property. It has been observed that very bad results accrue to the house owner after purchase of additional plot of land in the South, West or South-West of the existing property. As a general rule, avoid buying land or carrying out extensions in the South, West, South-West, South-East or North-West of your site. Buy any land which is on the North, East or North-East of your property. Only sites which have extensions/growth towards North-East are auspicious. These rules are valid for:
i) Naturally extended plots.
ii) Buying additional adjacent land.
iii) Extensions carried out in existing built-up structures.

To minimize the inauspicious results because of unfavourable extensions in the plot, construct a wall of about 4 feet from the ground to separate the extended portion. This will make the plot square or rectangular. The cut off area can be used differently depending on the direction e.g. if the cut off portion is in South or West make a store room without touching the main building or plant heavy trees. In case the cut off portion is in North or East, use it for open parking or have a small lawn or fountain there.
