David, from someone who just set up a very small darkroom after many yrs, do it! I figure, there's not too many things most of us do for fun and relaxation, and that's it' psychologically healthy to enjoy life when we can, doing what's relaxing, and to express ourselves in whatever way we choose, within limits of course lol And a darkroom can help with this goal. good luck!
And Aggie, I too would be up to meet with Lee. I arranged recently a Zone VI and some lenses, but the guy squaked. Looking at possibly a Wisner Traditional, but then I have to piece meal the rest and that's more expensive in the end. But I really like the extra bellows. Anyway, still shopping, but count me in.
