Once it warmed some more and the siding installation was underway the mason could start work on the masonry pillars. First chimney blocks were mounted on the porch deck, filled with concrete, and caped. The columns are put in place and the roof is strapped to a rod imbedded into the pillar.
Again, not every thing lines up like the drawings. The beam on the porch roof wasn’t center on the columns and need building up. See photos.
And almost done.
