The importance of back doors | Feng Shui

Sharma Back Door by tantrum_dan

Now for the houses and their lucky and unlucky areas. According to the compass school of Feng Shui, there are eight different types of houses, depending on which compass point the back door is facing. (It doesn’t seem to matter, whether your house actually has a back door, it’s automatically the side opposite the side with the front door.)

The eight kinds of houses and their beneficial/detrimental directions are:
