I believe that the pipe covered by the "blue stuff" is copper, and the pipe that goes from exterior to interior is black steel pipe, although a more technical term must be available!

I love having the extra shut off inside, as an extra precaution, although I always shut the valve on the propane tank as well.

Glad to help!

We drilled a hole in the wall too and ran a pipe through it but then ran the hose through the pipe and sealed it with spray foam. It wasn't hard to drill through the wall because out here most of them are made with chicken wire, styrofoam, dry wall and a thin layer of stucco. Scary.

The propane is stored in a deck box.

Mine's not permanent, and I'm not willing to bring an iron pipe in at the end of the day!

I was going to run iron pipe through the foundation and install a shutoff, but then I realized that the gas line is right above my workspace, so whenever I get around to it I'll just run a T off the gas line. I just moved my studio into the basement from the garage a few weeks ago, so I haven't made anything semi-permanent yet... it's never going to be truly permanent, as it's going back out into the garage next year. The pipe you want is (and I haven't read page 2 yet so forgive me if ten other people have already said this) black iron pipe. You can get it at Home Depot in a number of sizes, it's VERY inexpensive, and easy to use.

(And amazingly enough, that is the technical name for it... "black iron pipe".)

Thanks for the "technical" name Kalera!
I've looked at that kind of pipe at Home Depot for use as a frit maker...

Re: Pictures please?

My tank isn't locked up although I probably should at least fasten it down. Most of the time I'm fine unless a mountain lion with exceptional dexterity managed to turn the tank on. Should have it stabilized in case a curious bear gets at it though - not a winter problem however!

Re: Pictures please?

I have the same set-up as DiPat but a smaller window.
The plywood with vents is removable so I can close the window.
The plywood has vents, a large hole for my ventilation fan, two small holes for my oxygen and propane.
I put in the plywood panel, insert the vent tube, attach the hoses and voila.
