Sealing the ends: yeah. I plan on it. Not sure of method yet as I have to consider aesthetics. Might be a matter of tagging a couple scraps of ice and water shield on it or painting it with roof cement and then making like a corner board out of PT 1×4 or something. With the idea that the PT 1×4 is sacrificial :)

Wife wants board and batton and wants it painted (think cottage) so I’m going to run 2×4s horizontally on the outside of the stud wall to attach the b&b. This will also keep drips off of the ends of the 4×6s.
