Hi I've got to work out where to position a brick built stable block to be able to submit drawings for planning permission. The more I think about it the more confused I get though :blink: I've had a stable block where the wind went straight in, and my current stable block (brick) has such a big overhang the stables never get any warmth from the sun, and as they are positioned at the back of two big barns they don't seem to be well ventilated either, despite having air bricks. My main concern is - which winter wind should I avoid going directly in - the north wind or the north-east wind. Also, if I use a compass, which point should the stables look out onto (or rather the horses when in the stables) - I mean in terms of them getting too hot in summer sunshine. We are moving, and I want to get it right this time. Any help would be really appreciated.
