We have done it a couple ways. You can put a clip on the column if it is wood if it fiberglass you can cut a rectangular opening to receive the top rail and bottom rail which tie to the 4 x 4 inside the column.

The floor is Ipe. We have gotten away from using Ipe recently, the popularity of it has lessened the quality as well as its not FSC certified (coming from sustainable forests). Not wanting to deplete tropical hardwoods we have gone to garapa and meranti which are in the same family, less expensive and FSC certified.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This beautifully varnished wood is the perfect complement for this traditional porch. The floor itself is kept quiet, neutral and unassuming, as to not compete with the gorgeous ceiling.

LINES- In an image lines had length and creates outlines of shapes or forms. Lines can also create emotion for example thick black lines creates feeling of aggression and stiffness while thinner lines represent calm and peacefulness. In this image the lines of the flooring and the roof are thin which makes the picture feel relaxed and calming.
