    Default Move gas line... THEN build the addition.

    Okay... WTF were they thinking? I got this ticket cause the gas company was going to move the gas line for obvious reasons. But, I had to call the gas co. to let them know the building was filling up with gas.

    The vent on the meter doesn't do too much good when the meter is inside the building.

    I thought there is supposed to be a DogLeg on the meter. Oh wait it's on the appliance side. My bad. Patience is a virtue! Haste makes everyone UnHappy, and the job more complicated.

    I wonder if that was a handy homeowner job?? Hey I know! I'll build an addition and just pour concrete over the gas line!!! That meter will sure make for an interesting conversation piece!!!!!
