Second home I bought last Fall had propane. After filling the 500 gal tank TWICE while only keeping the vacant house at 55 last winter, made the decision easier to switch to natural gas in spite of the initial cost. Gas main ended at the house next door (grrrr). Gas company surveyed neighbors beyond me and said $5k if they get 7 out of 10 to connect. None did. It cost me $8k to pull the main the few hundred feet. Saved about a grand by having them put it on the side nearest the neighbor with gas which was opposite of where the propane entry was. They put the line in on Friday. Spent about $200 on black pipe and about 6 hrs of work on Sunday (in the crawl space) to extend it from the meter location across the house closer to the appliances.
I had converted an old stove I had from nat gas to propane when we bought the house and will now convert it back (simple job, flip the orifice and adjust the pilots, about a 5 minute job). Furnace needs to be converted but I'm probably going to have a HVAC guy do that. Gas company won't install the meter until at least one appliance is hooked up for natural gas. They'll do a pressure test and check for leaks before any appliances are lit.

There is nothing wrong with using galvanized water pipe for low pressure natural gas, in fact gas company recommends it.

I have seen natural gas corrode the inside of soft copper pipe and plug it up.
