Best Answer

The best aspect, in any country, for the principal front of a house, is that towards the fair weather quarter - that point of the compass from which the fairest and blandest wind blows most days in the year - and the worst aspect, that from which the greatest number of storms come. Keeping these principles in view, it is evident that the south-west is the best aspect for the dwelling house in the United States, and the north-east the worst aspect. The longest, most numerous, and most disagreeable storms come from the last-named point of the compass, and the most delicious of our fair weather days are from what the Indians called the 'sweet south-west,' the land where their ideal heaven of hunting grounds lies.
