Parfianka Pomegranate: how close to the house is too close?

Hey folks, looking to plant some pomegranates, and I’ve got a nice location on the southwest side of the house, but the sport that catches the best sun is only about a foot away from the home, and the home is built on a crawl space, so I’m worried about roots. I’ve recently removed 2 fig plants (about 6 feet tall) the previous owner planted in the spot, due to the well-known invasive ness of fig roots. is the Pom. something that can be planted near to the house without worrying about foundation/ crawl space damage? Would love your thoughts / experience!

Pomegranates are pretty thin rooted and stay small. I would more worried about mold and mildew when planted so close to a wall.
Beside these small trees excuse some shade.
I have planted in spring about 25 from seeds, they are still in pots/bags under our Banana tree and doing well.
Some got too much sun and burned (Thailand)
They are happy with their role as half shade plants..
