Keep with it - I have printed B&W off and on for more than 25 years, and am just feeling that I am getting good at it now. Not to say that all my fiddling in the past wasn't enjoyable. Good prints come from good negatives. Google up a decaesed photogrpaher named Barry Thornton - someone elese is now keeping his articles online. He has an excellent low fuss way for you to tune your film development in to match the your printing papers capabilities.

I am on my seventh darkroom now. Each time that you reloacate the new space will bring inovation with how to get the printing to work out easier.
