Opinions please: Best direction for house to face
I know there is a lot that goes into this - view, natural landscape etc. BUT, in a perfect world where the views were all equal and there weren't any constraints, I would like to know what you think is the best way to orient a house (which way would the house face?). I am trying to figure which way would be best in terms of sun, heat, light coming in, etc. The house would have the main living areas (family room, breakfast room, master) at the back. The kitchen could be on either side, depending how you flipped the house plan. It would be located in the midwest, if that makes a difference to you.
Any input would be appreciated - this group always has such good reads on things like this. Thank you.
