Some aspects of beginning of construction and basic vastu principles were choose from a elaborated list of vastu principles by making a long inventory from various books, magazines, newspaper, websites etc. and checked by various vastu shastries, Pandits and vastu practitioners from Hisar city. After that level of satisfaction score containing highly satisfied, satisfied and dissatisfied on three quantum scale these aspects were studied and found that some aspects like underground water tank should be in NE direction, no trees towards NE side, drainage system should be E and N side were applied by more than 85% of homemakers. Surprisingly 90 percent of them were highly satisfied by making underground tank in NE and no tress in N and E. less than 10 percent homemakers were found dissatisfied by renovating/constructing house according to vastu principles.
