Thanks for all the help! The plan was to go with a trunk line like the ones on micromatic.com comes wrapped in vapor barrier, foil, and insulation. the beverage lines (1/4") are wrapped around the glycol lines, see the photo. I won't be pushing beer 12' vertical there will be some horizontal runs in there. assuming my basemnet is 7' and the tower will be 4' from the floor and the kegs will be about 4' off the floor as i will have them in a fridge with the freezer on bottom and fridge on top so my vertical run might no be more than 8' feet or so.

So it sounds like my run should be small enough that I SHOULD be able to tweak the system to work and not have to worry about a nitro/co2 mix...? For those that are wondering I plan on having a pump in a bucket in the freezer below the fridge. Amazing how big these fridge types are. After measuring I should be able to fit 6 kegs and the co2 or a 7th keg.
