Darkroom Build: Day 8-9

A little double update this morning.

On Friday (day 8), the electrical inspector came and all was good. After that, my contractor took the window out and pulled in 50 sheets of drywall. That was pretty much it for that day. 

Yesterday, day 9, the plumbing inspector came and he too said all was well. My contractor said it took him over 2 hours to get him out the door. He (the inspector) was super interested in the darkroom project and was asking a whole bunch of questions (not related to the inspection). Maybe he was a photo buff too that was toying with the idea as well. ;)

Anyhow. After all of that, the contractor was finally able to start the dry-walling. He told me it is an incredible amount of work. Not one single sheet goes in without cutting or drilling holes in it. And there's a lot of nooks and crannies. 

It is starting to look more and more like a room though! And I'm getting more and more excited! 

Maybe dry-walling is done today and we can start thinking about finishing things up. Still some construction left to do. He needs to build another workbench and the supports for the sinks.
