boxing an exterior post and flashing

this should be straight forward..cant find info though

i added an exterior gable to cover a patio...two 6x6 posts sitting in saddles...i want to box around them both...say 12 or 18 inches...and then stone finish them (one sees this all over the place now adays)

can someone walk me through the inspector wants good drainage and venting...he says leave 2in from slab...and also said i need to flash the top and bottom....cover with the post with blk tar paper etc...

how does one do that exactly??
