What is the best orientation for a new house?

Orient new house south

If you are building a new house, try to orient your house directly south so you can take advantage of the winter sun. Ideally, you should experience your property for a whole year to determine the sun's path over it. If this isn't possible, make a model duplicating the sun's travel and nearby obstructions.
