Wood and stone pillars - Are the wood posts sitting on top of the stone pillar bases or is the stone built around the wood pillars?

The wood posts normally would be sitting on footers at depth for frost line, tube forms can be used around the posts for cementing them in, then the stone has a support to sit on around the posts. Also best to stain the posts prior to installation.

What if you have preexisting brick pillars and want to attach a wooden support pillar?

What is the width of the stone pillar and the width of the column - Trying to decide on whether to put 18" or 24" stone pillars on my front porch and like the proportion of these. What is the width of the stone column, the slate base under the wood pillar, and the wood pillar? Also, what is the height of the stone pillar?

How practical is the lovely stained wood in a humid environment like Maryland? - Hello! My husband and I are planning our dream home. Several elements of your design are lovely. I'm especially interested to know about the maintenance requirements of the stained wood shown here. And would it be "practical" in a climate that gets real cold in winter and very humid in the summer, like the one we have here in Maryland? Thank you so much!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Into the Outdoors
Extra seating that weathers the outdoors but adds an indoor-like coziness.
Margaret Everton added this to Cultivating A Porch Garden
This space is covered from the elements, and has been created as a sort of outdoor living room--complete with rug space! What a great option especially for those with young children, wanting to be outdoors but not in direct sunlight.
