Gas line to detached garage


I want to run a new natural gas line and new electrical to my detached garage.

- What type of gas line is recommended for underground installation? We experience all four seasons harshly here.
- Can I run both in the same trench?
- Is it possible to T off from my BBQ gas line that is already outside and running out approximately the same place where I would be running the new line inside?

You will have to get familiar with your local codes as it relates to both buried electrical service and gas piping. These codes vary widely from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Some / most areas require a permit for this kind of installation, not sure about yours though.

I've got the form and I'm waiting from a call back from the city to find out more information. We'll see what they have to say!
