Is the cove trim nailed in already?

I suggest wrapping the lower section with 3/4" stock with the back rabbited out for the tin work--

then install the cove molding----

Yes the trim is nailed already. Any chance you can give me some more details on your suggestion? I'm having problems visualizing it.

Without windows then this rooms going to be a mess in no time.
No way for the water to drain.

Mike got it on the trim but I agree with Joe on the drainage. You need to bring those panels up an inch so the water has somewhere to go. Is that porch sloped?

Yes, porch is sloped towards the door for water removal, I'm also looking into a 4-trac window system to help keep the blowing rains and pollen out.

Here is where sketch up would help---

Cut a length of 3/4" wood to reach from the floor to the bottom of the rail---

Round over the top---

Remove enough from the back/bottom to clear the tin----

Slice it in two---miter the outside corners

cut the notches to clear the bottom plate----and install it----

This is a bottom column wrap ,commonly seen on a square porch post---but it only cover the half you see from inside---

I think I know what you are describing. Will this be similar to a plinth block but mitered to an outside corner?

I dont want to be a buzz kill but Joe is correct.

On the old screened in porches the walls were about waist high, and they set up off the deck about three inches. The deck extended out over the substructure so water could run off freely. They also had pretty significant lookouts to prevent rain from hitting the porch.

The 2 x 12 PT Dimensional limber you have running horizontally is probably going to cup and warp severely in short order as it dries out.

Again, not trying to buzz kill, just save you some grief.

You Must give water a place to go, or it will find its own path to the sea, probably not to your liking.
