comment Solution for A/C Condensate Drain Line that doesn't require emptying a bucket of water every day?
If it's a rental and they aren't allowing you to make modifications and you can't let it drip, can't you contact building maintenance and ask them to address the issue? Personally, if dripping onto passersby isn't an option (which isn't a big deal to me; it's clean water) then I would hook up a flexible tube to the spigot on the AC's pan and let it drain through the hose to the ground. This may require a long tube.

Why can't it be connected to a drain of some sort? And why is it not dripping onto the ground?

comment Is this ladder bookcase design strong enough to hold printers?
You could continue with your design as long as it is attached to the wall. I do think it would have stability issues unless you either attach it to the wall or change the base to have a board on the back to make it an H.

comment How can I mount 2ft by 4ft fiberboard panels on a wall?
Since this is artwork, I wouldn't do anything to damage the pieces. I would mount the panels in frames and hang the frame. This would provide no visible hanging hardware as well as keep the artwork intact

comment Is it recommended that 1/8 thick plywood be used as underlayment?
I just got done looking it up and there are acceptable size less than 3/4" or 23/32", but it is dependent on joist spacing. I personally would recommend going with the 3/4" or 23/32" plywood or OSB for the sub-floor. It only costs a little more and the area is probably not that big. The added rigidity will be good to prevent flex in the floor which could cause your tiles to pop off the floor. As far as the underlayment, I will defer to more experienced people on this site; I'm a DIYer and not a pro.

Personally, I would replace the sub-floor. Most of the work is already done (sub-floor exposed) and what's there now isn't perfect (uneven and wavy).

comment In slip joints, what's the difference between rubber and nylon washers?
I would think they are both compression fittings. If it is leaking, it is either too tight or not tight enough. Given that it's rubber, I'm expecting not tight enough. As far as the materials, I would expect the nylon to be tapered as it is more rigid than the rubber which when compressed would expand differently than the rigid nylon.

comment Is there a quick cure for refrigerator drip tray stink?
I'm not sure any of those options would be safe long term to place in there then. I would expect it to erode or ruin the paint and eventually the metal.

What is the drip tray made of? Metal, plastic, or what?
