The columns are made of MDO. It is a plywood product made to be used outdoors. It is 1/2" thick and comes in a 4x8 sheet.

The stone is natural limestone that is from quarries here in Ohio. There is actually a blend of two different stones in this stone work. The stones are North Shore Buff and Wyandotte. Typically each stone yard will name their stones differently so that one can't shop a particular stone from yard to yard. I would suggest taking this picture to different suppliers to try to have them match it. I hope you get the result you are looking for!

I was digging around in my basement and found the can of paint for the porch siding. The Color is Antique Linen by ICI paints. Hope that helps!

What is this thing hanging from the gutter? We just bought a Craftsman so I'm looking at pics to get ideas and I've seen quite a few of these things that look like upside down cowbells. Having just moved to the Midwest from Virginia, I have never seen these before. Thank you

I am in Ohio and the rain chains in the picture freeze up all the time in the winter. It is actually pretty neat to see them turn into columns of ice. They have been up for 8 years and I have never had a problem with them.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Design With Weather: Introduce a Rain Chain
What originated in Japan hundreds of years ago, the kusari doi, or "chain gutter," is a simple way to carry rain to the ground in an aesthetically pleasing manner. The Japanese have used these chains on temples and homes over the years with the sole purpose of embracing the beauty of a rain-filled day.
Becky Harris added this to Using Houzz: Create a Home To-Do List
MAINTENANCE: Have the gutters cleaned• Call John the Lawn Guy – 678.555.5555• Cost: $50
Tapered columns. This is one of the most distinctive characteristics of Craftsman homes, despite the variation in detailing. Tapered columns, which support the porch roof, are typically short and rest upon massive stone or brick piers that extend to ground level, both of which convey a certain solidity. Not all columns are tapered; another popular variation is the double column.Borrowing the very recognizable porch supports from the Craftsman style is a great way to get a touch of the look without rebuilding your home from scratch.
