Our portion is in left part of the building I.e the whole north part.staircase is in the Centre of the two flat and placed in the eastern part.
    1)our entrance door will be from from south-east-south wall as there is no other option which will lead to a corridor then towards the door of the living room in the northeast portion.And towards the backside of the staircase we have extended our house which is the southwest portion for our house. So should we consider that due to this extension there is a cut in our south east portion. Kindly advise
    2)And we have to place our kitchen in the north west part but first in the corner there is a small balcony then the kitchen.entrace is from East. The kitchen slab will be from South to West wall.And the cooking stove will be in Northwest corner means while cooking one will be facing West. I have a confusion some are saying one should face east or north orelse it will lead to financial issues and northwest kitchen leads to high monetary expenditures. Kindly advise.
    3)our master bedroom is in the extended southwest portion and toilet in the north west part of the room.
    4)In between the master bedroom and the kitchen is the guest room with toilet in the southwest portion of the room.
    5)As the living room is in the northeast portion we have extended the northeast corner a bit to make the worship place. Behind the living room is the dining area it will be in the north.
    6)And towards the right of the living room which will be southeast will be another room where we will keep the television.
    7)we have given maximum windows in the east and North part of the apartment.
