First the length of the wall should be measured; its length should be divided into two equal parts. The door should be fixed a little bit nearer towards the northern side from the centre of the wall, as the southern side is not a prosperous one. Similarly the door should be fixed a little bit nearer towards the eastern side from the centre of the wall, as the western side is not a prosperous one.

Extended sides and diminished sides of sites and their consequences:
- A site which has its south-east and south-west sides extended yields bad results. People who live in such houses may become ill and may make enemies.

Vastu Doors: Places of the Doors and Windows
A house can have the doors on all sides. A house needs doors, windows, shelves and ventilators. These things should be in even number.

The south-western side of the house is considered to be the mean sides and the north and the eastern sides are considered to be the good sides.

Small doors and small windows arc to be fixed on the eastern and the northern sides. The level under the threshold on the southern and the western sides should be over and above that of the eastern and northern sides.
