Don't Hang Drywall Till You Watch This!

While you're building a house there are a lot of tiny details that end up making a big difference in your home, one of which is figuring out how to separate your garage from the rest of the house. Obviously, you want to be careful to separate due to fire safety, but also one thing to consider is air tightness.

This doesn't seem like a big issue until you realize that if the garage and home aren't properly separated, the air quality in your home can be seriously jeopardized.

Risinger also warns us to not forget those outlets too where air can get through. Watch the full video now!
