6. Step Six: Build the Next Pillar
Good work so far! At the end of the wall panel, construct the next pillar utilizing the same layout as in Step 3. Align the wall and pillar with a square. Making certain to offset the vertical seams from the blocks below, set the next course of Corner blocks.
Carefully replicate steps 1-5 for any extra wall panels, pillars or corners incorporated into your design.
