e 2763 USA: Artifacts: Looking for a source for Cantera stone columns for the house I'm building near Austin, TX. Trying to get some idea of the cost of nine columns @ 9' tall and 16" diameter seven columns @ 8' tall and 16" diameter. April 16. Contact
I would like a quote for Cantera limestone columns.  My concern is that the shipping costs from Mexico to Texas will be significant, but, having said that, I am getting quotes from Austin stone dealers that are through the roof.  Looks like I'll pay for shipping one way or another.
Need quote given two ways: 1) solid columns 2) sectioned and cored (please include cavity dimensions).  Not sure yet whether I have to use the columns as structural support, and I understand from most that the solid columns won't pass the structural test. 
I want Tuscan (Doric) straight columns in the classic soft cream limestone color.  These will be used both indoors (5) and outdoors (4) for a total of nine (9)columns all the same dimensions: 8 feet tall (finished height with capital and base) and 14 inches in diameter.
Please include cost of material, any special installation information, and shipping cost to the building site.
Thank you and please let me know if you require any further information. May 15
