No windows, tiles all around, a large sink, lots of storage space and a door that can be locked from the inside make the small room situated to the right of the entrance to WhateverLab the perfect place for our Fotolab/Chemielab (and thanks to Bina & her mad restoration skillz, it is actually useable again as of 01/11!).
Please refer to the Fotolab v2.0 subpage for progress updates (added 2011-02-10).
