The stroke order is just to make the drawing/writing easier, you don't necessarily have to follow it, though at the very least you should start from top to bottom and left to right. Starting bottom right with the strokes would be weird and the kanji would most definitely look bad too.

This is an interesting one. The correct order in Chinese starts with horizontal - vertical, just like hidari. And I'm pretty sure I remember the official order being changed in Japan ten or more years ago (correct me if I'm getting confused with some other kanji). 

When inconsistencies like this don't have any obvious historical or other justification, I stick with what I learned for Chinese or what I learned when beginning Japanese.

Why does stroke order matter, though?
