I did the survey. I would not be willing to rent/let others use my darkroom. Its in my spare bathroom, which guests also use on occasion. Trays have to sit on the floor for right now, so its not really set up for ease of use for all people either. I'd be willing to show others how to do darkroom printing and give little workshops. I'd also be willing to let friends who I know well use the darkroom as well.
Now, in 20 years when my wife and I build our dream home, this would be something very possible. Our plan is to have a large room that is basically a studio. Large square room, concrete floors. Large standing height table in the center. Sewing station for all of her sewing projects. Probably an area with a pottery wheel and kiln. There will also be a full built in darkroom accessed through a revolving door. Theoretically, this studio would be attached to the house, but would have a door that could be locked from the inside to the rest of the house. I could allow people access from the outside of the room. Maybe even via a key fob system that would restrict days and hours of entry. One can dream!
