Last two sheets of iron to go on, forgot the sarking. Did for the last two sheets, lifted the roof today and place the sarking under. This to help with condensation. Barge caps in place. Door jambs in. Door only arrived at 16.00 today, will hang tomorrow. Then it will be locked up. Can start on interior. Batts in the wall. Plumbing and finish power. Then fit interior linings. Still hoping for ANZAC weekend.
Pat ; Sounds like a great result, look forward to some interior photos soon .

I'm glad I got the roof finished. Started to rain about 04:00 this morning. about 5mm so far.
We ended up with about 60mm of rain. Felt nice hearing it on the tin roof. 11K tanks are chockers. Power roughed in and checked by the sparky, All walls are now clad. One J box to go in then the ceilings. 2 Fluro's for lighting. 2 x 2 safe lights. So I can run two different colour safe lights and have two on (there are 4 in total.) A small viewing light over the trough/tray area. This will also help when coating salt paper. 8 Power points and a 20 amp feed to the processor area. Speaker (5.1) FM and sat TV and FTA TV. Working on ducted vents with a fan in the baffle at floor level. By using AC duct I can place a couple of 90 degree bends and make it light tight. An in line fan with vents over the two sink areas. Fully insulated, got my mate Garrett to fit the batts for me????????????. A painter mate is coming over to have a look and has offered to paint it for me. Another mate is looking at some stainless benches and sinks for me. Will have 3 x 3 m for wet area. Trying for stainless throughout this area with laminex ply over cupboards above the sink area. I have worked out a rack for my glass and plastic measures. Will start on the ceiling in the next day or so. Once done paint.in and out, coat the floor. Then benches, equipment and FUN...........
"Once done paint.in and out, coat the floor. Then benches, equipment and FUN..........." and... Mrs Largeformat Pat will never see you again! :P
Lost to the dark abyss down the back. Pat and darkroom wonder dog Phoenix enjoying the mod cons.
Gee, it looks bigger than mine. Peter
I shall not comment.
Ceiling in today. Sparky back soon. Final fix out in the next day or so. Then start on benches and such. Have to call on a few mates to help move the durst L184 in.
Will spend time and resize some pics for you all.
Pat ... aircon?
Air con of course. Looking into passive vents. And baffled fans as well. Room is fully insulated.
Pat must really be enjoying his new dark room, haven't heard from him in nearly a week :P
Haven't finished yet. Just locked up. Work has been keeping me busy. All power done. 10 power points 2 x twin 36 watt fluro's. Incandesant globe over the sink for coating.
Will resize pics tonight and post. Almost ready to paint.
Very impressive, Pat. My darkroom is about 1 metre by 1.7 metres, so it would fit into yours quite a few times.
Finally locked up. All cornice and quads are in. Speaker wall plates and then paint. Solar guard inside and out. Gloss white inside. Exterior to match house. I was given a concrete paint that is acid,oil and what ever proof. 3 coats on the walls then the floor. Benches Monday I hope. I will start to laminate the timber for the exposed bench tops.
Stainless else where.
Spoke to my doctor, "get the surgical brace" have to move the L184 again.
Keep you posted.
Gloss white inside? That's not what I expected to hear...
Smaller globes in the safelights. better reflectance. Also easier to clean.
2 coats of white on the walls and ceiling. Final coat Monday. Acid etch the floor then coat with BASF master top 1080. This is a great coating available in many colours. It is chemical resistant and seals the floor nicely. Get them CD ply for the cupboards on Wednesday. Still planning for ANZAC weekend finish. Will post pics Monday.
Pictures as promised
