Deck Questions

Building a deck and considering two options, 10x12 0r 14x12. either way I can only go out from house 12 feet. Deck surface is less than 24" above grade.

Option 1: 10x12
-what size sonotube? I need it 4' down so below frostline
-3 layer 2x8 beam? 2 piers?

Option 2: 14x12
-what size sonotube?
-3 layer 2x10 beam? How many piers do I need?

How much should sonotube be above grade?
