      Joe,

      I have videos showing how to do this. You might really want to get this pier layout video series where I show how to square up a foundation layout in real time.

      From the article: "The bottom of the footer needs to be below the frost depth."

      It depends on where you live. Your local inspection/codes department should be able to give you information for your area.
