    Great old barn,the interior would have made some nice back ground shoots but would not have made a very clean darkroom.You have done a great job on making a nice darkroom.How bout the out side,does it still look like an old barn.

    Yes the exterior is the same - it's a protected building so I can't change it (not that I'd want to!). It's made of thick stone with no natural lighting - so when I got the chance at it I jumped.

    Looks homey, but, if the light prevention thingy worked, why aren't the pictures black?

    well, you see, the system only prevents indoor light when I wear the matching aluminum foil hat.

    Although the total refurb cost a fair bit virtually everything in there was donated for free. The enlargers, lightbox, trays etc came from a local college and other photographers who, sadly, would have thrown them out. Even the metal sink and worktops were free!

    The walls are a bit bare and the refurb has literally only just been completed so it'll evolve and change over time. If anyone has any suggestions for improving things I'd love to hear them.
    Wow! I can't imagine how much time and effort you put into that, but it looks great!

    Best part of a year...yup, a freaking YEAR...in between having to work it's taken that long. The last few months were actually a bit depressing - it started to feel like it was never going to be finished. But it is...and I'm a happy camper.

    It's taken so long that I started to believe by the time it was finished digital photography would be in decline.

    By the way, don't knock your "light prevention" - it's probably more light-tight than mine!

    Wow! I'm not the only one. It hasn't been a year, but I started in February and really thought I'd be finished by now. Did have a good weekend, though. Got the dry side cabinets finished and installed. Catch up on the blog (in sig line)
