    This thread is great. I'm working on building a small darkroom in our two car garage. We rent so I can't do anything too permanent. I need some kind of walls and water and power over to the side I'm building on. It's going to be a challenge but I think it will be worth it. I had a 4x5 enlarger with a bunch of accessories given to me last year and I'm getting the itch to use it. Thanks for the great pix and ideas in this thread. Oh yeah and any input or helpful tips would be greatly appreciated.

    It doesn't matter

    The most important thing in your darkroom is the photographer. Edward Weston had a contact printing frame and a lightbulb. His images were made in his mind first then printed simply in the highest quality image possible. Just something to think about.

    I can't remember if I have shared this update or not, so here it goes. We have so many posts it's hard to keep track, so if it's a rerun, apologies.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    That darkroom is balls out.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Robert -

    You have a very fine work space here. One of the best thought out I've ever seen. Wow.

    I want to make duck boards for my sinks too - what kind of wood is that, and how do you seal it? Do you flood the sink a little to keep the temp constant around your trays (then if you do, does the wood try to float)? Lastly, do you run workshops in your lab? With that many enlargers and that kind of space you sure could! Again, this is the finest lab I've seen here. Bravo!

    With luck I've correctly attached a picture of my enlarger cabinet. I can use my enlarger in the garage and still keep it safe from dust and moisture. I run a dehumidifier when necessary and the cabinet is pretty well sealed.

    Sealed garages actually aren't that bad humidity wise. Drywall really helps.
