I've got a wood burning fireplace and would like to have a gas line ran to it for some gas logs. My subdivision doesn't have access to gas so I want to have a propane tank set for this and also to heat my wood shop. I've gotten two quotes to run the gas line and I can't believe they want $2200 to do this! Could I possibly do this myself and then have a plumber hook up the gas line to the fireplace?

Also am I getting a snow job on these quotes, or do they just not want to do this job or is that the going rate?

Recommend a plumber doing the job, because propane gas line will require flared fittings, NOT compression. $2,200.00 is not just outrageous it's robbery! The new tank can be installed outside right near the fireplace with 3/8" O.D. soft copper, with final connection made by others.(propane supplier)Make sure the flared aluminum connection piece is used inside the FP that comes supplied with the logs.
