Gas Lines for the LittleHouse

by on Jan.18, 2017, under Gas Appliances

We came up in late October to run some propane lines into the LittleHouse.  These are to feed a wall-mounted, direct-vent propane heater,  gas water heater, oven/stove, and possibly refrigerator.  The house heater will be mounted on the North wall, near the northwest corner of the house.  We hope to have solar radiant heating run under the floor throughout the house, but the propane will be our backup heating system.

The other appliances are all located in the kitchen area, along the north wall of the kitchen. The sink, bought from sinkology.com is also in this area, so we do not have to navigate the pipe around it.

We started out by installing a manifold in the Northeast corner or the house.  There are two 6″ black pipe nipples installed on the back, along with two plugs on the unused ports on the back, and one plug on the unused port on the side.  We also installed a gas valve at the inlet to the manifold. This is where the propane tank will tie in.  From there, we have one line run to the direct-vent heater location, and a second line running to the kitchen.
