Hi All!
My darkroom project is finally morphing from the construction project from the nether world to an almost functional darkroom. After nearly 2 years and the excavation about 10 cubic yards of Bay Area dirt, (read sandstone!), the building inspector gave me his official "thumbs-up" today!! He actually thought it was great that I was building a real darkroom!

Now the process gets serious! Even the wife is smiling! The smile has nothing to do with my pursuit of artistic expression, it's all about getting all of my "c#@p the h&((" out of our bathroom & bedroom!! Please understand, with a wife and 3 daughters there's not much "ours", for me, at all when speaking of bathrooms!

I have wall mounted the enlarger. Still need to put in functional shelving and move the rest of the equipment and other miasma producing paraphernalia.
But I am almost there!!

Regards,
Geary

Congrats! I know the exhilarating feeling of that new darkroom! It's kind of like Superman's fortress of solitude!

very cool.

It'd be great if you could take pictures during the entire process and keep a blog as well. I wish I would have kept a photo blog over the past couple of years. I've found software to put on our server, so some time when I get a round tuit, I'll be keeping a blog there.

Great going Geary! Post us a scan when you have "first light" under the enlarger. KwM I think tuits can be gotten at Home Depot in various sizes and shapes, though the round ones usually sell out pretty fast. Last I saw they were near the light bulb department where they keep the Bright Ideas.

Congrats! One more fortress of analog sanity.
And I feel your pain... with a wife and two daughters (all three are packrats), my darkroom is a place of peaceful solitude.
