Framing around gas lines

Post by oxide » Tue Nov 11, 2014 11:09 am

just a quick framing question, is it best to go around and add some foam core behind the pipes or extend the pipes out so the framing can from one end of the corner to the other?
they're about 1 3/4" away from the foam core.

I do not know of any regulation in my area against concealing a gas line in a wall cavity but you should set your wall up so that pipe is more than 2 inches from the back side of the drywall. If this area will have a suspended ceiling then would also not run the drywall completely to the top . Leave it down enough that the pipe is visible so in the future someone can easily see it. You may want to check with your local gas supplier to see if there are any special rules you need to follow in your area.
