Progress remained incremental this week. My plumber came back to install the gas line, and ended up reevaluating his original plan. At first, he thought he could run the gas line next to the waste line, which is contained in a chase that runs from the kitchen down three floors to the cellar where the gas meter is located. But after he got a closer look inside the chase, he discovered that running the gas line in this location, while not impossible, would be substantially more difficult than he had expected. And when you're dealing with plumbing, "more difficult" means "more expensive."
