    Well Aggie,
    Great minds truly must think alike!! While you were posting this, I posted an invitaion to do a Bay Area get together in Member (Dis)Organized Functions!!

    That being said, Kevin, or anyone, is welcome whenever I am home. See the darkroom, check the refer for a cool one, whatever!!

    Cheers,

    Thank you for all the adive. What happened when I did the foundation I wasnt thinking abotu the studs and drywall therefore I short changed myself abit and I didnt at the time think I was going to add a toilet. Major mistake on my part. I only envisioned a bathroom when I started laying the subfloor.

    So my box is 12x24 and I also want to have a place to do framing and mat cutting in the front of the darkroom wall. The 3x5 bathroom really takes up more space than I planned. I was hoping to get away with 8x12 but it seems that it will not work to good.

    you guys and your dedicated darkrooms.. i'm so jealous.

    i have two enlargers (including an omega d2 for doing 4x5) in my small bathroom in my 1BR apartment! when i print 16x20s i have only room enough for two trays on the counter.. the fixer tray is on the toilet and i wash in a tray in the bath tub! necessity is the mother.... as they say. :-)

    congrats on your new darkoom of *any* size!

    Boy is this true, I did NOT do this and keep having to go back by the door to turn on the switch, which is behind a rolling shelf. Oh, and put a good quality light in the room, I put a florescent one in (round) and the light is OK, but not good for working with the lights on.

    Bigger is better, especially when talking about darkrooms.

    I can't imagine working in a 8x12 darkroom, and probably even a 10x12. But that will all change when I go off to college...

    My current darkroom is about 20'x30'. But that includes my work area (print mounting and framing) as well as a spacious layout, large wet side (about 6' x 20') and a horizontal 8x10 enlarger.

    my darkroom is 13.5x13.5 foot for the dark part. There is a 10.5x13.5 foot room that is an office and print mounting area.
