In our area of Canada it depends on the size of tank .
More info required .
I expect in your area you can have a propane BBQ close to the home.

NFPA 58 requires that any tank over 125 gal. WC (water capacity) shall be a minimum of 10 ft from the transfer point.


Less than 125 gal can be next to the house if clearances to vents, intakes, and points of ignition are met.

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.

Up to 125 gallons can be next to the home in my area. I frequently see multiple tanks lined up to get around the rule.

Paul; If I am not in error, 8 one hundred pounders would be equivalent to your allowances.
I believe a one hundred pounder has 16 gallons of propane, but may be corrected.
