    I hang it over the bathtub. In our last place I had two retractable clotheslines, which worked nicely. You can get them from a hardware store.

    I have yet to see a house which was not big enough to accommodate a sheet of 8x10 film, which is the largest format that I shoot, so I am confused by the question.

    When I first began reading the posts here, there was much made of drying 35mm film on its reel, in a sort of plastic wind chamber made out of PVC pipe with a (cool only) hair drier feeding filtered air in one end. Is that idea now out of favor due to excessive curl in the dried film? There were pictures posted and plans shared. I never got around to building one. A clothesline in my cool and not terribly dry studio seems to work fine.

    I found one of those WWII era Kinderman dryers on ebay. Its about the size of 3 or 4 paperback books stacked up. Works really really well with SS reels but my Jobo reels are just a skosh too big. For that I have to arrange the reels stacked with toothpicks between them (so air can flow) and cover them both with the jobo tank that sits over them and the air exhaust hole.

    If your film isnt super curl-prone to start with (Foma and Forte, for instance) you'll do just fine.

    Far as that goes, I get along just fine (long as I dont want to do color, I use the job for that and that takes room) with 1 1-reel ss tank, 1 2-reel ss tank and a a small plastic tub with a lid for my chem and measuring stuff. It all goes right back under the sink when Im done except for the film dryer. If I stuck with Rodinal I could reduce the entire thing to the size of a shoebox.

    JD I still use the bathroom as well. Not that innovative but it works well - late at night or whilst the kids are at school.

    I hang my rolls up to dry in a corner in the kitchen with some clothes pegs that sit at a nice height when fixed into some metal shelving. They hang over a small bin that we use to keep recycleable goods so no-one cares that it gets dripped on.

    They show it hanging from what looks like a shower curtain rod.
    I bought two of the hangers that Scott posted above. I'll let you know how it worksout.

    Roll film I hang from a lightfitting in the living room - it drips so little it's never even occurred to me to hang it over the bath! (I have hard floors rather than carpet, mind.)

    Sheet film put on a dishrack in the sink (not the same rack we use for the washing up though!)

    All the way from Japan my fancy new film hangers arrive. My wife looks at them and says, "did you get those at the dollar store? No. You paid to have them shipped from Japan? You know those are for knickers not film?" So these puppies may be doing dual duty so I can recoup my investment.
