It's years since I tried, but what can I say - go for it.
My own experience was a homemade darkroom in the attic - NO dust protection - Anyway dust aside, I was trying B+W reasonably OK considering, and then C41 printing. Mad challange, couldn't or didn't know how to get the colour balance exact. Needed a lot more experience than I could give/get at the time.
Didn't know Ilfachromes were 'so' fragile ? I must read up a little more so before taking that step so.
Anyway - it's a challange, not an obstacle........ isn't it ???
Keep us in the loop as to how you get on.
