My wife and I are searching for some speicial hillside property with a view in the country to build a home for our retirement.

I am looking for definitive information on how to orient your home.

I have been reading some lightweight information about orienting toward the south for solar benefit. I have been thinking about orienting toward the North so that we will always have good indirect light but never blinding light coming in the windows.

Like to know what books or articles I could read to get some really good information about orienting.

Can anyone help me out with some good references?
