Stimpson ties and a concrete pier are code in most areas----buried posts are not allowed in most places

Are you in an area where an inspection is required? The building department will help,if you are.

I'm a little confused with the description of what you're doing.
Is this a porch on the side of a house?
I see no mention of floor joists, just roof rafters.
Do you mean 3/4" plywood?
Setting sonotubes and using Simpson stand off brackets would be my choice.
