4x4 Post Support and Stucco Over Brick Transition


Looking to build a structure like this:
http://cwfbuilders.com/images/Pillar...or_a_patio.JPG

How deep should I go with the footer? Would you put the blocks on the footer wet?

I was thinking of using a sonotube and have it above 6-8 inches above the ground level with the rebar in it and then pour the square footer around it above 12 inches deep or is this overkill?

Advise on stucco over veneer brick... I am not doing the entire front with stucco only what will be covered by the new roof over the porch. What do you recommend doing the transition from the stucco to the brick since the stucco will be raised over the brick by a few inches??

The depth of your footing depends on where you are located,in other words how deep is your frost line???
