    Depending on how it was constructed, and from what, the best solution might be to let it drain out. I looks 'added after the stone', so if ... *IF* ... there are no fasteners through the stone, and if ... *IF* ... there is not non-pressure treated wood there to rot ... maybe just let it drain out.

    To many *if*s and not enough information photos from all angles, etc., to make an informed statement about it.

    Otherwise, it would entail removing the stone, installing a through the wall flashing, and more flashing, then re-installing the stone.

    Do you recommend sealing at the bottom of the casement trim (3rd photo)?
    What's that metallic looking stuff showing? Probably just leave it open to drain.

    Flashing required where the balcony band board interfaces this stone column? (4th photo)
    I see it going back into the lap siding on the house???
