John and Linda Cogger, both TM Teachers, commenced their Maharishi Sthapatya Veda Consultation in 2006, however it was not until 2008 that they decided to look for land in the Maleny community in the hinterland behind the well known Sunshine Coast, Queensland. They had a strong desire to move from the busy city life of Sydney to a relaxed, idyllic, calm life in Maleny. The 1500m² lot chosen has ideal Vastu features with a delightfully elevated view to the East and the morning sunrise.
John and Linda both had clear ideas on the type of house they wanted and Linda sent several beautiful pictures of homes from magazines for inspiration. They also wished to have a unique internal layout with an emphasis on traditional Vedic concepts regarding the use of rooms.
Similarly, light flows uninterrupted both North and South through the North door and internal Northern passageway over the Brahmasthan and along the short Southern passageway to the sunroom projection which also has full width windows.
John and Linda mentioned that a big wish for the future is -
"What we are really looking forward to is greater nature support and deeper and more profound meditations. We want friends and family, including our extended Sidha and Governor family, to come and visit."
They are also looking forward to having the time to focus on gardening and landscaping together with the many other tasks that new homeowners enjoy doing after moving in.
The actual building of the house was very smooth. The house was completely built on site and it was a great joy to watch it grow and become our Vastu home. Our Vastu home would not have happened without all the expert advice and encouragement from Mike Lyons. He made himself available at any time and we greatly appreciate the huge effort he put into getting our house built. Also we were very fortunate to find a fantastic builder who really took on the Vastu concept. Dan was totally on board with the need to be exact and accurate with the measurements and orientation. We were in constant communication with him. He once said "Trust me John , I'm sweating on getting this right" and he did. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to build our own Vastu home. We offer our utmost gratitude to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for providing the knowledge that allowed it to happen. Linda has said many times "I feel like I'm in Heaven".
