Front porch help- new construction- please help!

We are building a house in the woods on a small lake. Trying to decide what to use for the front porch? We have not broken ground yet, so I want to compare costs and get advice on what would be best. Going for a rustic look. We will retire here, so as little maintenance as possible. See plans, and inspiration photos below. If cost were no issue we would do a stone porch, stone steps, dry stack pillars with stained beams. I know the foundation and footings will be way more expensive going with all this stone. To cut costs, would it work to have a wood or composite wood floor with stone steps and keep the dry stack pillars and beams? House will be a painted cement siding. Advice needed! Porch is 42 feet by 10 feet.
