Darkroom set up

im very much looking forward to the weather getting warmer then i can start transforming my shed into a darkroom.

Having done a few photography workshops i feel i have a basic level of understanding to set up my own at home.
I need sister to clear out her university odds and sods to then buy the nessesities, e.g chemicals, work table, and an enlarger. I should really begin researching the costs of setting up a darkroom.

Fortunately the shed is fairly intact (as was brought for me whilst at 6th form college to use as a studio, but ended up as a storage room).
i expect due to digital, buying equipment second hand maybe fairly easy and inexpensive, even if i can get hold of an enlarger i can always do contact printing and pinhole photography.

i worry about light proofing, i could easily rig up some blackout curtains but blocking out the light from gaps in the actual sheds structure may prove more difficult.

i hope this will prove to be a better economic solution to renting a darkroom as well as onsite equipment that i can continue to practice my new found techniques.
