Ok, I'm a little surprised that there isn't a dedicated sub forum for darkroom design, just about any equipment you could ever want but nothing for the room it gets used in. Anyhow, after years of blocking the light from our bathroom to enlarge a few negatives then taking it all down again so we have our bathroom back I have decided it's time to build a dedicated darkroom. Unfortunately we have no spare rooms in our house and I feel a little gutted that we don't have a basement so onto the next available area... the garden. In the garden we currently have an 8x10' greenhouse that is looking a bit of a sorry state, we also have an 8x16' shed that's falling over , after a quick chat with our landlord we have been given the go-ahead to carefully dismantle the shed and the greenhouse and re-build in a more usable way. The basis of my plan is to build an 8x10' brick foundation on top of the 8x16' concrete slab to allow for raised wooden floorboards and to add a little extra height to the greenhouse walls (yes, I'm making a darkroom out of a greenhouse, maybe not the most logical starting point!). The greenhouse frame will be re-built on top of the brick foundations and lined with the tongue and groove board from the shed, the roof will be lined with the OSB roof boards and felted, the door will also be lined with tongue and groove board. After the electrics and water have been added in I will be lining the entire inside of the room with polystyrene board for extra warmth in the winter. Conveniently my mum is having a new kitchen fitted next year so I will be acquiring some kitchen units, sink etc... to kit out the darkroom. I will then be building a smaller shed on the remaining 8x6' space left on the concrete slab for the garden tools. Hopefully this build will start to take place in a couple of months (weather permitting) and I will use this thread as a kind of build diary with lots of photos of the work and (hopefully) a nicely finished darkroom. First of all I need to clear out the shed, having a large shed doesn't mean things get spread out more, it just means you hoard loads of rubbish! Keep an eye out for updates (might be a little quiet for the next couple of months while I wait for the weather to warm up) but it will come!
