Dear Uncle Dixer: I am building my house now. I want to know how I can use Feng Shui to provide the best for my family.

Answer: If you want a home with good feng shui, then you should either engage a Feng Shui consultant right in the beginning to work with your architect or get an architect who has a good knowledge of Feng Shui.

To provide the best for your family, your home should take advantage of the auspicious in your surroundings. At the same time avoid the not so auspicious so the environment can nourish your house and the occupants.

The Chinese has a saying for this: “Hasten your luck by avoiding the unlucky”. Good luck!
