New shop/house gas install
My father in law has built a new shop and is going to be starting to build a new house near it and has asked me to help him out with the gas piping . He is bound and determined to do it all himself without getting a plumber. He is more then competant when it comes to doing anything construction related but doesn't always do things the way they probably should be done so I just want to make sure he is getting everything right. I am a Journeyman sheet metal worker in Canada so I have a general understanding about gas fitting but haven't had to do anything of this scope so I was hoping someone could help me out so that I can make sure he gets it all right.
His shop will have 2 100MBTU radiant tube heaters and the house will require about 300MBTU for the furnace hot water tank and gas range. The gas company has run the supply line by the shop so he was planning on running the piping needed for the shop now and have the line for the house run underground and capped until the house is built and he can finish it then.
Any help on the sizing and preferred method of running the gas lines would be appreciated.
