If so how did you attach the panels to the less rigid knauf? Glue or nails?

Thanks!
The tiles are just spray adhesived directly to knauf 705

Hi. I really enjoyed seeing the process of your studio build and love the final outcome. Great studio. I'm currently building a private studio in my basement and have a question hopefully you can answer. I see that you have a "Mini split" AC unit in the control room. I can see it is not mounted on an external wall and I'm wondering how did you route the condensation drainage line? Where I would like to install one of these units I don't think I can route that line outside because the unit would be below grade compared to the ground outside.

Sorry I just saw your post. So I have five of them and the refrigerant and condensate lines run different paths but all end up in crawlspace. I have a pump down there to take the condensate outside . Could work maybe like that in your situation

Thanks for your response. But that won't work for me cause the studio is being built in the basement. So no crawl space below it. Guess I'll have to figure something else out.

You can put pumps in or next to the units. They aren't dead silent, but I found some that are pretty quiet and then built a box around them-

This is another advantage to using an ERV for fresh air though. I was told that the pumps will run a lot more rarely because of the ERV's, but so far they have not run at all, and not even a drop in the tanks. That said, Denver is pretty arrid and there is no need for dehumidification here...

Thanks RyanC. I just might try that idea when I get to that stage. Although, there is a drainage stack near by. But I'm not sure if it's a good idea to tap into that and use a "J" trap.

Yeah, just put in a wye and run a drain tube into the stack, avoid the pump if it can run downhill. I would use a waterless trap like these-

Put in a wye, put that trap on that side of the wye. This way you don't have to worry about the water evaporating out of the trap and letting the sewer gas in. I'm having to add those, because there is no condensate going into the traps.
