If that is a beam in back with one post under the center, I'm curious as to the fasteners at the end rafters/beam? I understand the rail post in the way.....

There is a sistered 2x6 as the back beam along the house but not attached to the house..Only to the posts. We were not allowed to attach to the house because of city codes. There are 3 posts on the back, the 2 at each rail, and the one in the center. I will be back in town tomorrow and can take more pictures. I probably made some mistakes, as this is my first project of this kind, but I got it permitted and inspected and passed so hopefully I am OK.

The siding and plywood are both interesting options. I am trying to picture how the siding would be "finished" on the bottom edge though.

If you decide too go with the pro-rib siding at purchase they also have starter strips or many different types of already bent steel to cap the bottom that you can purchase.Pro-rib siding is similar to vinyl siding there's a varity of trim pieces u can use to complete the job.All can be cut with snips and will be same color.I would use what they call a "cap"piece that covers whatever thickness you end up with.In some cases you might have to see what sizes they have in stock and then build out the sides of your awning to accommodate it.So you'll need a cap,starter strip,screws,siding,and i would guess a drip edge to place on roof to transfer water from roof to siding.i can't tell in your picture if the roof cantilevers over the side if it does you'll need an inside corner piece.An estimater at menards should be able to show you or demonstrate where you'll fasten will what screws to use and where to use them.I would try and contact a web page for Pro-rib siding to see it would probably help.They usually have a demo cd or video you can watch.I hope this helps.
