I would contact a local mason and see if you can watch them at work. This is a real art which can't be taken lightly. Beside the risk of injury moving very heavy stones, you need to have a well designed base to deal with moisture in all seasons and a good eye for picking just the right stone for each situation. Good luck with your project.

Very difficult to answer, because of the porches, attic space and basement all contribute, but all inclusive for the main house, not garage is approx. 7,000 square feet.

Because we probably cannot make an entry stairway like this one practical, the boulder is a nice substitute.
