Here's my 2 cents...  East and West are determined by the spin of the
earth, not by the relationship of the earth and sun or stars.  The
earth spins about the axis defined by the poles, and that doesn't
change - the north pole is always at the same place in the arctic, and
the south pole is always at the same place in the antarctic.  So long
as the earth spins about that axis, the sun will always rise in the
east, but at a varying latitude as Vaj said.  That higher or lower
latitude will change the length of the day, but it won't change which
way is east.  If you use Vaj's stick and circle method for finding
which way is east, the latitude of the sun will determine the times at
which the shadow crosses the line, and the angle from the stick to the
crossing points, but when you join the points, the line will always be
parallel to the spin of the earth.

The magnetic poles are another matter entirely.  They are close to the
earths spin axis, but constantly slowly moving around, which is why
magnetic north, for most of us, is not the same as true north.  Then
occasionally at random times, typically hundreds of thousands of years
apart, the magnetic poles switch over between the arctic and
antarctic.  If you look at a compass after that happens it will
indicate that *magnetic* north is in the antarctic, so based on that
the sun will rise in the west, but that's only by the compass, and in
fact the sun will continue to rise in the same direction it always has.

So you can build your east facing house, and it will stay facing east.
