    Could I put an electric rinnai in the bathroom or a gas rinnai boxed in on the exterior? Do you think the plumbing would work if put the tub on a 2 - 5" platform?

    Yes that is what I meant,
    but then I was just kidding around Gary !

    yes you can use a electric rinnai if they make one it just depends on how close you are to a nuclear power
    plant or hydro-electric dam for the size of wire you would need to run !

    Electric tankless systems need SUBSTANTIAL power going in to make a decent flow to fill a tub, especially where you are on that mountain, the wintertime incoming water is likely to be near freezing. You'd probably have to upgrade your electrical service and run a quite expensive cable to supply the thing. Since you're planning propane, you wouldn't need to address the gas pipe size like you might if it were NG. How is this building heated? If you have a boiler, had you considered an indirect WH?
