Hi all
My son lives on Long Island
His gas service enters the utility room in the front left hand corner of his house and his kitchen is in the rear right hand corner of his house.
He has an electric stove that he wants to change to gas.
There is no route inside the building through the finished basement.
Is it ok to run the gas line outside along the foundation, buried or on the surface, using 3/4 galvanized pipe.
I can easily punch through the foundation to exit the utility room where all the gas lines are, for his hot water heater and boiler.

Thanks
Ralph

Every location is different as to what home owners can do in regards to working with gas lines.

Before proceeding with your project, I would contact your local municipality or gas supplier first and ask them directly in regards to the proper material needed, local codes, and whether or not you are allowed to do it. Just a suggestion.

I doubt it.

You'll need to check with your local code department to see if what you want to do is allowed.

I had the same problem. I put a couple of holes in the basement ceiling drywall, and then called a pro to run the line. Then patched the holes in the ceiling. Proper final action would be to paint the entire ceiling, but lighting in that area of basement is not perfect and after putting primer on the patches, they were invisible.
