First off I have never built anything except a skid composter and some raised beds.

I am wanting to build a quinea house, so my question is....how deep do I need to put my post in the ground?

Thanks!

That makes sense. I will check it out. I am in the mid-south, so I don't think that the frost line would be very far. I had thought about digging them 12' to 18". I will check this out.

Thanks Gimpy_Magoo.

At least below the frost line.

Check with your building dept for this info.
ours is 3ft.
if you dont you run the risk of your posts heaving upwards over time.
