Need help on running gas line to detached garage


I am running gas and electric to my detached garage from my house. The trench is dug and is double the required depth per IBC. I borrowed a Hilti hammer drill from a friend and have the hole for the electric already drilled. My question for this project is; where should the gas line go through the foundation in my house? I am using plastic gas line so it is correct for underground use. Should it go through above grade with iron and then connect to the plastic? Thanks

Ask your building department that question. They will know. It's your area that counts to give you that information.

Most areas allow live in homeowners to do their own electrical work, but it still needs to be inspected. They generally frown on homeowners doing gas lines. It MUST be done correctly, or the risk is death/injury.
