May 2017 darkroom progress update

We were optimistic of an April launch, it’s now May! But we’re nearly there…. Honestly!

We got ourselves into a position of only needing to add the plumbing and the electrics, close off the small bit of ceiling, touch up the painting, and we would be done. However, we hit a snag, and a fairly significant one…

The enlargers were too tall for the ceiling! DOH!

So, the past weekend has been spent replanning the enlargers’ location and subsequently raising a section of the ceiling, and dropping one side of workbenches – as can be seen below.

The change has been for the good anyway, the enlargers’ work levels may have been a tad too high previously, and we’ve gained more free workbench space in the process.
