  • What an awesome relaxing space you've created! Seriously, so cool and well built!!

  • Very cool! How deep did you bury your 6x6s and did you cement them? I just worked on a fence project with 4x4s cemented 2' deep, and the comments about it at work are frustrating.

    • Thanks. Minimum depth is 28” for 10” diameter concrete encasements. Ideally you just need to meet your local frost line depth. So check this map and you’ll know if yours are deep enough. Fence posts are less critical than a structure such as this.

    • Good thing fence posts aren't structural! I’d have to go about 5’ deep to avoid frost; probably be better off insulating. Went with 8” tubes, so I’m crossing my fingers... thanks for the info.
