Great job Jon. Handy use of space too.

Good luck with it when it is finished.

I can't believe this is taking so long! But, I just plumbed in the cold water side. With luck, I'll finish the hot water side tomorrow. Once the sink is plumbed in, the only thing left is to hang the safelights, and move in the processing line.

I keep telling myself that it will be done by the end of the week. Of course, which week...........

How long have you been working on it? Seems to be about a year now.

Well, I bought the plate burner about September of last year. I started planning the darkroom about then. So, it has been a bit over a year.

It is amazing how life gets in the way! If it wasn't for the two months in Iowa, I might have completed it earlier.......

I now have running water in the darkroom!

I need to wire in the water heater, set up the safelights, and the film drying line.

Almost time to mix up chemistry!
