These steps are made of timber, most likely 8x8 western red cedar.

crushed limestone paving? - Is crushed limstone a viable option for New England? Any other suggestions?

This is gold decomposed granite quarried in California. It is a blend of gravel from 1/4" & smaller all the way to dust. This is compacted over an additional base rock layer that is also compacted.

You would need a metal worker to fabricate this. Usually, the railing, the rail end, and the posts all come separate and need to be welded together after verifying the dimensions in the field.

What kind of stone was used on the house? - I know this is a regional question, because different areas have different stone. I am about to start construction in Texas and love the size and color of this stone. It would be perfect for our project. Thanks,

What Houzz contributors are saying:

All garden styles can benefit from the addition of rock. Here a more traditional cottage style garden uses rock slabs to create a hillside planter.
