I was at an inspection today and saw this gas vent for a natural gas fireplace behind the swing, under a covered porch with a beam running along the front of the porch. I’ve never run across this. I would question it less if the beam wasn’t there to prevent exhaust gases from escaping further away from the home. Thoughts???
Direct gas vent for a fireplace… needs at least 12-24" to side wall/inside corner. I’d call it out. Best thing to do is verify with fireplace manufacturing instructions. Good luck.

Thanks both of you so much that’s great info to have.
36 inches from an inside corner of an L-shaped structure. Definitely not 3 feet in your picture.
I believe the porch has to be open on at least two sides, and minimum 6 inches clearance to inside corner. Is that right?
