I deal with 1000 gals. tanks and 500 gals. tanks in the winter for temporary heat and the rule is 10 feet away from the building structure and barricaded for protection and also hard piped inside the building.
For temporary heat you are only allowed 25 feet of rubber gas hose inside the building.
For permanent, I believe a 20 pound or a 100 pound could be against to house with no safety factor to worry about.
I have also seen what I call a pig size, which is an upright tank about 250 gallons an next to the house.
I would recommend talking to the gas company in your area since they regulate the installations and are licensed to install this product.
