A factor not discussed is the view of your county or city building department. In my case the county required 2 foot cubed concrete footings for each vertical post. I could not budge them and finally got a variance to pour a continuous slab pier. It still cost $800 unplanned. The county felt any roofed structure had to meet house footing codes.
