    Hi,

    I set up my darkroom 3 years ago and started with a Durst M70 color. Meanwhile I added an M805 for lager format.
    I use both enlargers, because working is much easier, for example pre-exposuring paper for contrast control.
    Developing of smaller formats is in trays, for larger formats I use a Fujimoto CP-31, which is placed on a rollable table.
    I do mostly RA-4 colour printing. Negatives C-41 and Slides E-6 are developed in a Jobo CPE2 with lift.
    A sink with running water is located in the garage nearby.
    I was lucky and could use a big room of about 15m2.
    Rolls of papers are stored in an extra room in the cellar, where temperature is low.

    Nice darkroom Joachim! Interesting that you mostly print colour.

    Here's my B/W lab - been at it for over a year - now I'm processing film again. In there you'll see the 10X10 Durst L184 with 1414 cold light, an auto focus DeVere 504 (with ZBE controller and Ilford 600H V/C head) - film processing line with nitrogen burst agitation, paper processing sink, film dryer and big custom table that folds open on one side to allow use of Seal 500TX press. I still have things to finish up on, like building a print drying rack and some duck boards for the sinks. I have a power amp for my stereo, but still need a preamp and a tuner, gotta have music in the lab.

    This is my space, not quite as posh as Jbrian's but it's evolved into a very good darkroom over the past 2 years. I have a large 7x4' light table outside the darkroom that has a folding wooden top, so it can double as a desk when I'm not using it for editing. There's also a film drying cabinet behind the vantage point for the photograph.

    Nice ! I like that you can just spin around and drop your paper in the developer. Perfect size. I also like the wall-rack that you have over the sink - looks like that stuff you see in stores where they can mount different shelves for display. Good idea there. My first good enlarger was a Beseler 45 just like yours - you've done a nice job here, everything is thoughtfully placed.

    Rather than duckboards, take a look at a product called "Dri Dek." You can find it at restaurant suppliers or on-line (http://www.dri-dek.com/?gclid=CLCR84...FQ-R7QodFl0ANw). It is 12" tiles that snap together to form a custom sized mat. They will last forever and can be separated easily to clean the sink. Get black which will not show stains.

    I convert my kitchen into a darkroom. I look forward to the day I can set it up permanently.
