I'll eventually be moving. When I move, I plan to build a dark room, probably in the basement of the house I would move into. Does anyone know of any resources where I could find out general things I would need for a darkroom? Such as, how large should it be? What kind of entry? What kind of counter/sink setup? Silver recovery systems? Basically, I want to know everything and anything about a home darkroom. I'm not very constructionally skilled, and by that, I mean I can't even make some shelves or a birdhouse, so I would have to have a contractor come out to section off parts of the basement. So I'm at a total loss of what I need to know. What do I need? How much would it cost? (I'd like to do color (slides and ilfochromes, I suppose), but it is not completely necessary, and if color would add some huge cost to the building of a darkroom, I would skip it.) Thanks to all. I am so happy that I found this forum, without it, I would not have the knowledge that I do now. I've learned so much about film photography from so many people. I genuinely appreciate all of the help that I've been given, it has helped me a lot to better my own skills and give me goals, such as building a darkroom.
