    Ah. Everyone needs a sanctuary these days. Don't forget the "BUSY! GO AWAY!" sign to hang on the door . Many happy, rewarding hours await.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    LOL Art!

    But alas, the down side...I must do battle with my nemsis...the bane of all home darkrooms...second only to light leakage...

    ...the dreaded D U S T!!! It seem the ONLY place I could locate my darkroom is directly below the laundry room, with the dryer vent passing right through my sanctuary (fleeting images of quazimoto...)...this shall require creativity, engineering prowess and, not to mention a few sheckels...

    I must also go to confession...the attached image was...di...dig....no, I can't say it...dig....argh!...non-analog.....please, FORGIVE meeee!

    I get around the dust problem by never dusting or vacuuming It only stirs up more dust. But seriously, if you have the water running a lot, that may keep the air humid enough to keep the dust from rising too much.

    Hey Joey!
    I faced a similar dust problem because I'm in the basement too...My solution was to install a suspended ceiling...It only cost a few dollars and works really well. The added bonus is that when I need to get at the electrical, I just need to lift out the panels.
    I notice that you have a dryer duct going through the area. I have a bathroom fan duct going through mine, so I have put in a 'T-junction' and tapped in a small bathroom fan for my darkroom...I works really well in keeping the fumes down.

    Just some ideas,
    Kent
