Darkroom Build: Day 7

Yesterday the electrician was in again to finish up the rough in. All cables now live in their designated boxes. And the moisture barrier is back in its normal state.

Today the inspector should have came to see if he's happy with all this and the room is up to code. Should be. That's why I'm paying someone to do all this. But I just found out he was in an accident this morning and won't be in today but on monday. Ugh. I hope the accident wasn't work related. :s 

We 'might' have to install a (second) emergency door on the dry side though. Chances are the inspector might think of this area as a 'confined' space. So then it needs a door or an escape hatch at least. We will see if it comes to that. But that would mean more light seals. Something I am trying to avoid.  

Also we have start building the filter boxes for the incoming air. The 2 heater vents I have in there will get the same treatment. The boxes will use an easy-to-get automotive filter. These filters have the capability of trapping even the finest dust. Better than the 3M filter that lives in my furnace at least. 

***edit: the inspectors DID come today afterall and since everything is good we are full steam ahead! Yihaa
