Use half slabs. They don't cut vertical Redstone –  MBraedley Jul 21 '13 at 3:21
    
But redstone only goes 15 blocks. My thing here is about 128 blocks high! –  danbru1211 Jul 21 '13 at 11:21

If you don't mind the signal going only up or only down, you can use the torch-block sequence, this is self-powering. –  SF. Jul 23 '13 at 10:11
    
how should i get it with torches DOWN? i dont want to get as many as possible ticks. i need a fast connection from the top floor down. –  danbru1211 Jul 23 '13 at 13:18

Ignore the house

If space is more important than low latency, you can replace the repeater with a vertical double NOT gate, which would lower the maximum space from 2x3 to 1x3:
