Pool in the front? Groan. Not to mention that it at least used to be that water was frowned on at all, supposedly that was why the ponds at MUM were filled in and the whole landscape changed around.
Water is now in? Great, but why does it seem like most of these “principles” more than anything seem designed to make people uncomfortable, both the people who feel they have to live them, as well as anyone else in the neighborhood. Bet you Nader’s kids won’t want to have anything to do with a pool where anyone passing by can have a look, for as long as they want. I can’t imagine anything worse from a kid’s POV. I suppose they could plant hedges but that’s probably bad juju too.

The pool is in the water corner, which puts it right in the front yard. But, pulling the house forward and putting the pool in the back yard, on the west side of the house, would apparently be very bad juju. When we were adding on to our original house and rectifying it to MMY-SV standards, we had to expand the existing north pond eastward to create more water surface area in the correct sector. Fortunately, all that fill dirt was put to good use making the new east pond. The old driveway used to go down a deep gully, over a culvert, and back up; now it goes straight across the top of a dam, and the dam needed to be wide enough that Petra didn't feel unsafe.
