    Update on my office layout

    While we are moving into a custom home we designed in the near future. This is the layout I will be using. The only thing missing is my 10 gallon storage tank for compressed air. Will be here Wed. The other items missing are the ceiling ionizing fans and heppa filtration purpose built for the room with positive air pressure. Will do same for dark room.

    Anyways you can see all the equipment.

    My drum scanner will hopefully be here end of summer.

    Next step to cover up those windows and get the ambient light levels low enough for serious editing.

    Will this area be used solely photo editing/scanning/computer work, or also for printing?
    One thing I've realized is that if printing, you want an area solely for print inspection, whether for color calibration or solely for inspection prior to display.
    Having lighting that mimics your intended display area, not just for ambient brightness levels of the room/space the print will be displayed in, but color temperature of the lighting itself.

    Some good light-blocking window shades can allow for "dark room" times, but also open natural lighting if/when you don't need such stringent light levels for other tasks such as surfing Large Format Forum

    I see you're using one of those quiet low-RPM RolAir compressors that I specifically convinced them to provide once quiet oilless US-made models were no longer available from Thomas. Most small compressors are revved way up to compensate for an inefficient pump, and whine and squeal like a downed WWI dogfight plane; roofers use those noisy things, and the high RPM typically burns the pump or motor out within six months. The only predictable problem with the low-RPM Rol Air is a little subsidiary ball valve that sometimes clogs and might need cleaning or replacement.

    I only edit at night so window coverings not needed.
