Dear Uncle Dixer: How can we calculate the four directions of an apartment (and not the whole building) using a compass? Do I just stand outside the front door or do I have to be in the middle of the apartment? Please help. Thank you!

Answer: The front door is not necessarily the facing direction, and the middle of the apartment is usually full of electromagnetic disturbance. I would do the measurement either on the balcony or down on the street where there the facing is located.

You can also do it with a Google Compass if your apartment is visible on the Google Earth map.
