Somebody asked if they could visit/tour the home darkroom. There isn’t room for a visitor, much less the class, but it’s important to know that it’s entirely possible to set up at home. This one is neither a custom cave nor a hellhole; economize wherever you can, and spend for quality where it counts.

Some storage, including a tripod case, developer heating pad (and a helmet).

The enlarger base is an old television cabinet.
Behold: thousands upon thousands of negatives.
