Yup, I was a bit worried about dust getting in the house (even more so than it does now from the attached garage) too. Our house is old enough (mid 60’s) that the subfloor isn’t plywood, but solid wood planking perpendicular to the hardwood flooring. leaves lots of tiny gaps the dust could have escaped through. And as you stated, the garage is a lot more conducive to keeping SWMBO happy.

I think I’m gonna order one of those dust-right flex-hose kits with the floor vac attachment once my wallet recovers from the DC/ducting purchase. That just looks WAY too handy for cleaning up what the DC misses. I can also see it being handy for hooking up incidental stuff like a downdraft table, machines you rarely use, etc. Anyone tried one of those?
