Here are some pictures of the finished exterior trim:
And you can see in this final picture that I covered the supporting post with 1x4s and 1x6s to make it look nice. I also put in one more framing board on the top though it’s not pictured here:
The next day, I went back and moved the runners for the stairs out to the ends and added a bigger cross support board to make them more stable.
Now I’m working on the wiring. I’ll see if I can’t post a video for that. It’s also supposed to rain all week so I’ll have to see how much I can get done.
