    Make that two, just looking for a ball park figure (400$ or 900$?).

    Gas meter is about 10ft from BBQ location.

    call a plumbing place, a lot of them will give you a quote, the biggest PITA is usually that gas lines are all threaded together so often times they have to unthread the whole works just to tap off the meter so its usually easier to run new piping in to your furnace room and tap off at that end, makes a loop back, but its easier than completely dissembling and reassmbling

    Ok so that makes 4 in total
    Looks like if we find someone, might be able to work out a group buy at this rate

    If you happen to have a partial-rough-in, it's not hard to do the completion yourself. I had to install a shut-off and extension on one for a relative, and it was pretty easy. I did find that Lowes had a much better selection of gas-rated valves than Rona.

    No, I'm not suggesting that I should do your installations. I'm not qualified.

    You're not allowed to run your own gas line as a homeowner.

    I was always under the impression you could run your own gas line but the final hook up had to be the plumber.
    That being said, I think you'd need to have all your connections exposed for the gas fitter to inspect.
    Also, there's a lot of idiots out there so I see how this could be a trainwreck.

    I have used G.I. Joe Plumbing and Heating and was very happy with their pricing and service.

    They installed my detached garage heater, and added a bbq hookup on my deck.

    They also ran a gas line for my brother to his deck as well.

    I mentioned this in a similar thread a few months ago.

    If it leaks and causes harm to another, or blows up your house, then you're on your own with the life changing repercussions.

    Hope I can manage to make this post without being a tool....
    That other thread was a completely different scenario. OP wasn't changing, altering, or adding to the gas line. He was merely trying to figure out how to make the Quick Connect line from his barbecue to the already in place, and inspected, existing gas line.
    Any time work needs to be done to the house's gas line, altering or adding, you need a licenser gas fitter.

    Question, could I run my gas line and have it capped in the garage? I want to get it all set up for a heater when I can afford the heater, I just want to dig the trench before it freezes

    Well since you obviously know more than licensed gas fitters maybe you can school them on how they don't know what they're talking about. Better yet phone CoC and tell them "what's what".


    You don't need a licensed gas fitter to hook up your bbq to the natural gas coupling at your house. PERIOD.

    Ok guys, I called GI Joe heating (http://www.gijoeheating.com/index.html)
    It's 300 to start (permits and etc) then its $10/linear foot

    If you tell him Ben sent you from Beyond then its 250 to start.

    If anyone get anything cheaper then please post. This seems like a pretty good deal to me

    He calls a gas fitter every time he refills a propane tank and reattaches it.

    You want more PERIOD?

    Tell your rational to your house insurance company when your DIY goes wrong and your claim is denied.

    Read the fine print and wake the fuck up.
