    Is it in the attic? Youll properly need some good insulation. And ventilation as well. Be very thorough before having the electrics done. I have already moved some of my wiring due to "bad" layout and will have to move two more outlets. Storage place can easily be underrated.

    @ Tom:

    Unfortunately not. That means I will be walking up and down a ladder with a bucket of water I think.

    @ Soeren:
    Yes, our garage-attic. There's really not much I can change about it, right now I simply carry my stuff in there which I will be needing most.
    The few chemicals I own right now are in my bedroom, its probably warmer here than in the attic.
    A ventilator is next on my list. Maybe I can blow fresh air inside, or get the bad air outside... not sure about that.

    It might not be the ideal darkroom location, but its all I have right now. I'd still like suggestions on how to adjust this space so it will be a pleasure to work in there

    My darkroom is in a "Shed" built in our "Carport?(spl)" Its insulated and warmed by a small oilfilled electric radiator. works great (at least untill I see the bill ) I recomend 100mm of insulation to keep it frostfree at least if not comfortable to work in during winter. In the summer it doeesn't matter it'll be to hot anyway

    Well after some delay I'll post some pics of my somewhat unfinished attic darkroom. Hot in Summer fairly cool in Winter, but it's home. Rough dimensions are 20ft x 14ft x 9ft high. The slopped roof takes some of that space away. I have the two enlargers in the pics plus my dads old 2 1/4 X 3 1/4 Sunray and a Durst Pro 4X5 that is in pieces. As time and money allow, I will finish the insulation and the Luan on the ceiling. The old stereo on the wall was bought at a "junk" store for $20.00. After some cleaning it works fine. Love records. Eventually I will have water, but no real hurry. I do all wiring, carpentry and plumbing my self. Thats my real profession. Took my son and I twenty minuets to get the 10x10 up the steps. Attic is on third floor

    You don't see many of those horizontal Omega 10x10s


    I really like that Omega. I like its design better than the 'manual' Durst 184. I also believe that big Omega is still considered a current production enlarger.

    That way I can project on the slanted ceiling for parallax correction. Ha Ha

    Until now I have built five darkrooms. But there are still things to improve. And everytime I study other peoples darkrooms, I learn one or two nice tricks.

    Would you mind posting some images of your darkroom? I'll start with mine. I use it one day every week. And even after about twenty years of darkroom work, I still want to change things. (That's why I got the idea of this thread.) My desktop is very cluttered because I'm in the middle of a rearranging my darkroom.

    1) My darkroom sink. I adapted an existing sink to do all my film developing, and washing. Above the sink chemicals are stored child-safe. I built my own sodium lamp.
    2) An Omega D5 XL enlarger for 4x5 inch negatives
    3) A Durst M605 enlarger, my darkroom books and negatives.
    4) The wet bench with photographic paper to the left, and film tanks underneath.
    5) Bulk chemical storage and processing clock.
    5? great ....you did good job ... can you tell me the procedure of darkroom building..
    Thanks in advance....
