  1. Hey just a question about basement insulation here in Ottawa. I heard I don't need a vapour barrier if I put 2 inch rigid styro flat against the concrete. Then frame my 2×4 wall infront of that ( filling in the 16 or 24 inch on centre gaps with bat insulation of course)????

  2. Great tip to control dust.
    I would like to suggest that buying a cheap furnace filter to trap the dust would be a good addition this way you won't be blowing dirt all over the outside of the house or someone elses house.

    Another good idea for the cold air and heat registers is to buy cheese cloth and cover the vents with it. This will allow air to continue to move freely without any restrictions.

  3. We do this type of thing with ventilating PC gaming computers:

    1 Make the clean part of the house a positive air pressure space- pump air into the clean area.

    2 Make the dirty area of the house a negative air pressure space- do not pump air into this area at all [or you can pump air out]

    3 Now air will flow from the clean section of the house, into the dirty area where you are working.

    This way, any dust created in the dirty work area of the house, will never travel through the plastic into the clean area, because the dust would always be blown back into the dirty area. Also, your fans will not become dirty as fast because they are pumping clean air, not dirty air.

    [Fan] —–air flow—->> [Clean area of house] —-natural air flow—->> [Dirty contruction area with dust] —-dust blown out of house—->> [Outdoors]

  4. Really Informative videos. Is there a specific type of air mover I should be looking at that would handle drywall dust? Maybe something with a sealed moter and bearings? Or would a cheap one used for drying carpet hold up well? I would like to incorporate this system for my Reno's keeping the dust down is critical to so many costumers.
