I'm planning to build a storage shed 12-ft x 6-ft in the backyard.

How much will it cost to dig 6 holes, I guess, at least 8" wide, with sono tube filled with concrete with a post bracket inserted on the top?

Does the shed foundation needs to be at least 2' away from the fence?

Screw piles would be much cheaper and faster for the project. They are widely used here in Alberta.
