I'm enclosing a small four post garage in Austin, TX. that will have a 18' by 20'6" perimeter foundation with opening for a 16 ft. garage door. It has some old concrete post footings. In the line of the new perimeter. It has a slightly sloped asphalt base. How deep and wide should the footings be? It is free standing. I want use a rock saw to cut the perimeter out, but I need the code dimensions. First post, Thanks for your input.

It is all dependent on the soil classification of which the footing will bear. The international residential codes list 5 soil types. Crystalline rock, sedimentary rock, gravel, sandy gravel and silt clay with a bunch of variations in those categories. Generally for a one story garage it is 12" unless you are on clay and you have 8" solid masonry walls then it is 16". If more than one story the width changes again. Minimum thickness is 6" and they must be placed to a minimum depth of 12" below undisturbed earth. You can also do a slap-footer combination kind of like a sideways L but the specifications for that are different as well.
