In response to Re: sizing medium pressure natural gas for res. houses
Once you know the total footage from the meter to the end of one of the branches, use the next highest footage column in the medium pressure chart, (are you sure the house is medium pressure? Normally it would be low pressure unless there were some special conditions). At any given branch point add up the total BTU's past it and find the next highest entry in the chart. That will be the pipe size to that point. Keep going until you get to the end of that run and then repeat the process for any other discrete branches if there are any.
