    Walls done. Wiring finished.




    Next: door, flooring and trim. I am still waiting for New York to open so I can get my sink and fresh air inlet. Iím going to have the vent over the door.

    Your darkroom is looking good and is providing inspiration.

    I'm planning a darkroom in an outbuilding that has power and water that the facilities manager has allowed with a limited budget from the office of budget and finance (she wears a few hats) Construction is now delayed because I suffered a stroke returning from picking up a darkroom sink. (prognosis is good, I just need to be cleared to use tools of the construction trade, electrical trade, plumbing trade, HVAC trade, etc.)

    No health problems yet for me. Sorry to hear of your stroke.

    COVID HALTS DARKROOM PROGRESS!

    Very close to finished, but canít go to NYC to pick up my sink and vent.

    Got the enlarger side finished including the ancient Elwood 5x7. Cleaned it up and gave some new finish. I coated the bellows with flex seal and it seems to be good now for my lifetime.

    Very neat. The welcome mat is a nice touch.

    Finished. The sink is in!

    Yes it is mounted high up because of the drain, but elbow high for me and will be less strain on the ole back.

    How did you get the door light-tight? Rubber seals?

    Looks great. The sink height is fine as long as it fits you. I have my sink up high, otherwise my back goes nuts. Good job!

    I used a little weather stripping all around and a rubber door sweep at the bottom. I can still see some light around it, but I doubt it will be enough to be a problem.
