    I'd say work anywhere you like, but put the pets/kids in the spare room/dark box/ice tent etc, and tell 'em it's time to play pirate...

    But tell 'em not to drink the "pirate juice" in the bottles with the skulls and crossbones... ;-)

    The cat is an interesting accessory...

    The blue box was from Bin Warehouse and it looks like it's no longer available.

    Re: Where to Work - At Home, Kids, etc

    My first darkroom age 7 was a plywood box with top, hinged door in MN basement

    No running water or drain, no safe light, no enlarger, not painted, little shelf, small as I was small, no room for a chair

    I processed MINOX and contact prints

    1958 plywood was THE big thing

    Father made a Hydroplane for older brother, it sank if the 10 horse Merc was not running

    DIY is not new, he also built a North Woods cabin, no electricity, wood heat

    Early Tiny House with 2 seat outhouse, he drilled the well by hand and tested the water

    Very cold in winter

    We all planted 1000 trees for windbreak

    OP here.
    Yes, I solved it a long time ago by not doing any wet plate work in the winter. During the rest of the year, I work outside.
    Thanks for all the help, everyone!
