Running Propane Line - looking for input on location


We are installing a gas range and I need to add a propane tank. For now I am using a 100lb tank outside. I need to run the black pipe out of the house. Looking a the pic of the crawlspace - I was going to shoot for the upper portion where the water line is to run the gas line.
1. Its less to go through - when compared to the masonry blocks.
2. Its higher so there will be less black pip used, can drop down 6 inches from stove and go horizontal.

Any reasons not to put a 1/2 hole here and go lower?

That's a good plan gas/propane cannot enter the crawl space below grade- so the rim joist is your best option.
Also, regulators are restricted to certain exterior locations. Be sure to check with your local provider on their reg. requirements

I figured I can start with a spade bit for the wood - any suggestions for going through the brick and not making a mess? I figured if I was going through the cement blocks I would need a hammer drill, but for just the brick can I get away without one ?

If you have hours instead of min. to spare a regular drill will work.
Make sure to drill from the outside in to prevent a blow out.
