mask out the house. What you need is two layers of the same thing(since you have effects lab, this might get confusing)
On the first layer, mask out the house, this will leave you with a black space and a sky.
On the second layer, mask out the sky, this will leave you with a house and a blank space. Then you can grade them both the way you want. The reason you have to do all this is because Effects lab automatically blend the two footages together. Hope this helps
