Shop smells getting into the living quarters.

I had a paint booth in the back room of a house
I was renting.  I made an exhaust system to suck the fumes from
the booth into the outdoors but it still stunk up the house some.

In my garage proper I'd often run two-stroke bikes (stinky) or burn out
the crud from expansion chambers  (incredibly stinky and smoky, to the
point where neighbors would ask what was going on).  The garage didn't
have a door to the house, and I was glad for that.  Not to mention
my wife's collection of Honda Superhawk gas tanks, each containing
vintage gas.  The reek of old gas never really goes away.

The house I have now, there's two doors and
a hallway between the garage and the house, and that keeps the
smells out of the house.
