I have, in my basement, a 1/2" copper n.g. line feeding a gas f.p. on the main floor. It is convenient to the area where I'd like to install a n.g. stove as part of a basement kitchen. Can I "T" off this 1/2" line a run more 1/2" copper a short distance ( about 5' in total ) to the range? The 1/2" feed originates about 25' away. The feed from the meter is 1" black pipe, it feeds a gas furnace & gas water heater right where it enters the house; I've already T'd off of this pipe to supply my bbq. ( about 25' of 1/2" copper ), the previously mentioned main floor f.p., & a 3/8" line ( 18' ) feeding a soon-to-be-installed basement gas f.p.
I appreciate your input folks!

That may be something that you can get done free by your gas company. Have you given them a call about it?
...I can't see this as being anything to hire a gas-fitter to do, they'd charge a bundle! I've worked with lots of plumbing before & am comfortable doing the install, it's just a code compliance issue.
I'll have to go to the local Home Depot & ask, they usually know the local code requirements for the area.
