changes depending on where you go. I would imagine that high point park is pretty darn deep, and that cape may is not very deep at all. I don't think it would be shallower than 30" and don't think it would be deeper than 48". Your town or county may provide this information.

It varies according to lattitude and geography. At least here in Jersey. I remember a job years ago in a small town in Burlington County that had a code of 18" to the top of the footer. No code on the footing, just a minimum height to grade. I asked the inspector/code official/councilman/garbageman/postman (yeah, that's how small the town was) and he said, "Well, we go with whatever code the county uses. What is that exactly?"

YMMV

32 inches in central CT. This year the frost line is not deep at all with all the snow acting as in insulating blanket. I staked my ladder to the ground before going up on the roof to clear snow on the full dormer when I had about 3ft of snow on that roof and I was expecting to beat the crap out of the angle iron I used to secure the ladder. It went into the ground in early Feb. like a hot knife through butter.
