The wiki article for 'doors' in a village in refrence to population concerns states that the inside blocks have to be more than the outside blocks, in a straight line 5 blocks long. Is that line parallel to the closed door's facing or perpindecular to it?

@SevenSidedDie Hand drawn? I would have guessed random generator. – ChargingPun Sep 17 '12 at 12:44

The line is perpendicular to the closed door's facing, or in other words, the line is perpendicular to the wall. It goes 5 blocks inwards and 5 blocks outwards.

how can you be sure? have you tested this? – Ender Sep 16 '12 at 18:20
@Ender I have not tested this personally, however, I've seen videos demonstrating the exact configuration. Sadly, right now I can't link to any of them. As a bonus argument, if the line was parallel to the closed door's facing, most of the generated village houses wouldn't have valid doors. – Kcats Sep 16 '12 at 18:53
