Are there other ways to get a gas line run to my kitchen without going thru CenterPoint.  I have heard that a plummer could run the line without all the red tape...........   any comments

If you are in Kingwood,you are required to have a licensed plumber do it; Bubba from Porter with a pipewrench won't cut it.. Whether is permit is required, I don't kow for certain, but I would assume that one is required and ancity insoector will have to come out and inspect it.

We had to have our shower pan inspected when we had the shower replaced.
City rules, what a way to make a buck, and make you wait awhile on top of everything else.

Correct, Since Kingwood is the City of Houston a licensed plumber can do it and it needs to have a permit and be inspected before it can be used, that is if you want to be up to code...

And what gripes me even more; because I am perfectly capable of dong all of that type of work, and I did it for years. Because of city code, I am not allowed to do it.  I know that he city would not be particularly happy to know that I replaced the entire line from the meter to the house. But it broke on a Sunday and I had a house full of people and.....
 
I never aspired to be a plumber; not that I consider myself too good to do that type of work. I would pretty much do anything if I had to, to make a living. I just always found that doing certain types of manual labor was enjoyable.  
 
On the other hand, I absolutely HATE working on cars and always have.

Get out your checkbook.  We called out John Moore and we were quoted $800 to move a gas line 3 inches.

@EX NOLA:   I know how you feel.  I used to do a lot of my own plumbing and electrical work before Kingwood got it's "benefits' of becoming part of Houston.  I used to love working on my cars, but they've gotten so complicated with sensors/switches/computers that you need too much specialty equipment.
