Bending and Shaping Trim Pieces
The trim comes in 10 foot lengths so I have to piece sections together for coverage. On the main roof I start at the bottom with a small piece of rake trim. Then overlap a longer strip and screw it into place through the side.
To make the small tab I cut out two sections of the trim with tin snips then bend the remaining section over with a hand seaming tool. For most of the work on this post and beam gazebo I used diy scaffolding. Sure makes life easier!
One last side rake trim to do.
Now the peak trim goes on. I bend a small tab on this piece and it slips in under the side trim. Later I’ll add a small bead of caulking at this joint.
The last piece overlaps and the tab slips in under the rake trim.

And that’s about it! My post and beam gazebo is done.

Winter 2019 Update of the Gazebo
The heavy snow we had in February has almost melted. The Garden Pavilion held up to the snow load without any issue.
I installed a snow stop to keep the eave troughs from being torn off.
