    I suggest that you start a new thread for this as you are likely to get a lot of advice.

    Please entitle it usefully, e.g. "Darkroom Design Advice" rather than "Please Help Me!!!" so that others can find the information in a future search.

    well I gotta say this is the first time I've seen a Gardena hose reel in a darkroom The spray handle attachment would make cleanups a breeze though !

    Darkroom Plan 1.0

    I graphed this out in Photoshop (easy to do if you set the Grid to Gridlines every 1 inch, Subdivisions 2) and after measuring everything I have, this is what I came up with.

    This layout gives me 3.5' to 4' pathways and plenty or room for everything I need and currently own. The enlarger table can float in the center of the room and leave space for an additional sink on the right hand wall. (I even added the Darkroom Automation logo to get myself motivated.)

    The mounting table will probably be constructed out of MDF with a nice coat of sealer. A good friend has a router/table saw and will work for beer. He's Irish.

    Except for the LPL and the sink, all of these things are currently scattered all over my basement, on various shelves or on junky folding tables that I've set on cinder blocks. It will be nice to get it into a place where it all works together.

    Let me know what you think.

    Just getting started ...

    ... in a 13' x 17' basement space.

    *** QUESTIONS ***

    o What inline fans do people like for ventilation?
    o What do people find are successful systems for water temp control?

    Silly questions. This is a huge thread and there's more than enough information. I'm having a good read.

    Ulrich's informative post addresses the vent question ...
    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum43/7...on-help-2.html

    He has a killer exhaust system over his sink.

    Helios Ventilation Systems (UK & Germany)

    Not having found such a great venting company in the US, I'm hoping Helios can deal with us here -- particularly in terms of the voltage differential versus over there.

    Lopaka - Patience is a virtue. I must say that is one of the smoothest temp control arrays on this whole humongous thread! You deserve it.

    Hello,

    I use a simple ventilation system based on this:
    http://www.clasohlson.no/Product/Pro...x?id=164597409

    The fan itself is installed outside of the darkroom to keep the noise down.

    For water temperature control I use a Intellifaucet D250:
    http://www.hassmfg.com/search.pl/132...6?keyword=1092

    It is very accurate, and I am very happy about it, but it is not super quick to compensate for variations in the water supply.

    No, you're not the last. Maybe one of the last though

    I'm another one, putting the final stages of my 4th darkroom together. My previous one is in this thread on page 54. I moved back to Michigan about a year ago so I'm building another one. It's been awhile in the making. I've been without for a year and I'm itching to get going again.

    The Hass Intellifaucet is what I use for temp control. It works well for color processing with the Jobo. Ventilation is a work in process but I plan to use a ceiling exhaust fan to extract and a pair of Doran darkroom vents on the other end of the darkroom for intake.

    Did you transport the Durst horizontal? How did that go?
