In response to Re: LP gas questions
: My thoughts are just flaring the copper where it is now and dropping it 15 feet to the new location. The longest run is to the furnace from where it now is to where I want to put it is about 15 feet. Set the hot water heater next to it and tie in both vents.

: Double walled vent pipe with both units tied together. I have window wells with windows that can be slid open for air.

: The guy who did the foundation work said everything would be okay for what I wanted to do.

: Thanks for the advice

A few things don't sound right about your plan.
The work you described should be performed only by a licensed master plumber and an HVAC company. Running gas lines and flue piping inside a residence is serious business.
I wouldn't take the advise of the "guy who did the foundation work" when it comes to this, although it bet he's a nice guy. There are several areas of this work that if not done 100% correctly can lead to a possible catastrophe.
Hire it out, filed & inspected. You'll be better off in the long run.
