Electric to gas range


I'm not sure if I can do this myself. But would still like to know what this would cost.

I have an electrical cooking range in the kitchen that I'd like to convert to a gas range. The gas connection is available in the basement, more or less right below the kitchen.
The problem is that the basement is finished, I'm guessing that would make the exercise expensive? Can I get the connection from the outside? The kitchen faces an outside wall, so, theoretically, it should be possible?

Any idea on what this would cost? i.e without the cost of the range itself?

I saw the thread, but my question includes the possibility of bring the line through outside the house. I got a quote from a handyman and he said it's going to cost 2K to bring the connection from the basement to the kitchen. He suggested that the alternative is to bring it from outside. Not sure if that's even legal, possible and what the cost would be.

You need to call your natural gas provider on this one. Until you've done that all we can do is guess, because they're the only ones who can even tell you what is and is not legal in your particular location.

I smell a "path-of-least-resistance-handiman" maybe. Might be easier to come from the outside hence the 2K$ to do it the other way. To extend an existing gas line from the basement below the kitchen, up to the kitchen costing 2K$ seems a little rich to me.

What's really going on here I wonder?

Contacting your gas service provider is the way to do this.

Manis,

My comment is in reference to the fact that you got a quote from a 'handyman'. Unless this person is specifically licensed to do gas work, do not use him to do the actual work.
