You need to start at the appliance level.... Are the appliances setup for LPG (propane) or are they setup for natural gas? Usually conversion is as simple as changing the main regulator valve at the bottle connection and the orifices on the appliances. Some of the modern appliances have reversible orifices, one side for natural gas, and the other side for propane.

Propane is readily available almost anywhere due to popularity with campers and RV's and most current LPG connections have safety valves/regulators in place.

If you choose Natural Gas, you will have to find a CNG filling station. Although they are around, they are not as common as a LPG filling stations.
