    Self-contained military darkroom

    Wow. Drop this into your backyard and you're good to go, looks like it has all the equipment inside too.

    These show up on ebay from time to time, or maybe it's the same one

    I'd love to have it in my back yard though.

    For that kind of money, I'd expect it to go out and take the pictures too.

    Portable, too (I thought I saw handles on the outside).

    That would be fantastic mounted on a flatbed trailer. You could pull it behind an RV and have a darkroom with you everywhere you went. $6k is a bit steep. I'd be seriously interested at $3k, though...

    I saw those at surplus listings in the past. But I would like to know if actually someone had put such in a garden to serve as darkroom.

    I devised a space saving darkroom for use in a room that is likely more practical than such outdoor one. I question its thermal insulation. Though one could ad addional insulation at the outside.
    Maybe one could put it in a barn or alike.

    The main feature though (I do not say benefit) is that such a box would be completed with all appliances.
    And its stiffness. Though I do not see the need for the latter.

    It is not a building, it is a trailer, like a camping trailer, but probably better made if made for the military. Still, seems expensive unless you needed something really portable. Interesting.

    It is not a trailer. It is a cabin, made to the size of a standard military container that could be used for several purposes.

    It either stays on the vehicle (truck, trailer etc.), or is placed on the terrein by means of a crane.
