Recently I got an estimate from a plumber for a new hard pipe gas line from attic(2 story house) to the kitchen thru the outside wall. Kitchen is right below where the gas heating system sits in the attic. Estimate does not include fixing the walls or hooking up the new gas cook top.
Estimate: $1500. Is anyone out there who can validate this estimate? I thought it was too high. Your feed back is much appreciated. Thank You

Does that include the cooktop? That price sounds reasonable to me.

Our situation in another house was not nearly as uncomplicated as what you described, and the quote was $1500 including nothing but the labor from the gas certified plumber and materials, it was several years ago now, and it was in a lower cost of living area than Plano (Aledo). So it sounds good to me, but it's always a good idea to get a few quotes before you start a home improvement project. I know it's a hassle though!

That's reasonable since it has to go through the attic. Mine was about $800 but it was straight down an exterior wall.

We recently paid 1500 to run electric through conduit in the ground all around the house from the meter to the outside kitchen wall. That did not include the installation of the induction cooktop but did include the box for the cooktop and oven inside the kitchen.

The electrician said it was easier to do it outside than to go through walls from the attic.

If you think it is high get another estimate so you can compare from a professional that knows your house.

No cooktop is not included just the labor for the gas line.

We paid $250 to have the upstairs laundry room plumbed for a gas dryer during construction. Furnace is in the attic and stove and water heater on the ground level. We put in the order before they even poured the slab. House started in late 2014 and completed in March 2015.

whoa... getting a line run sounds like $$! Definitely shop around.

We thought we needed the exact same thing done, as the water heater (garage) and furnace (attic) both ran on gas, but the stove was electric. Knowing how much the wife wanted a cook with gas, I was ready to shell out some cash to get it extended from upstairs. Thankfully to my surprise... found out that the stove area was already plumbed for gas, and the PO just chose not to use it! Now we are shopping for a good slide-in style gas stove


We thought about running the line to the laundry room for a gas dryer, but I read the cost/ benefit ratio is not that high, if you already have an "energy star" rated electric dryer.
