Is this considered a good enough fire wall or is the lack of sealed joints prevent this from becoming a true firewall. The house was built in 1969 but don't know when the garage was built.
If it was my house, I wouldn't care as long as the joint at the roof and garage was fine - which it was.
What do you think?
Thanks ahead of time.
