Love the step! Who is the supplier in ME? - Hello! I live near Portland, Maine. Where can I locate a supplier of a boulder/granite step like this?

Thank you for your question. We're not sure where this particular boulder / step came from. That being said, you can probably find similar pieces from places like: JC Stone, Freshwater Stone, or you could check with the "Maine Granite King".

Thank you for your question. The Ipe boarding is 5/4 x 4 and the border piece is a 5/4 x 6.

The porch is unfinished Ipe decking. This picture was taken a couple of months after installation. Over time unfinished Ipe will naturally weather to a nice silver gray.

Very nice Shingle style porch detailing and low apron front railing matching square post base, but with higher upper railing. Not sure if meets current code, but a practical solution, and gap underneath echos pillar caps. Like the rustic gravel (also good for drainage for low lying porch) and bolder for front step. Also like how doors echo two-over-two windows.
