Students at Mississippi State University now have more choices when it comes to off-campus housing. Stark Crossing, a new development in Starkville, Mississippi, consists of more than 100 townhouses. Each unit is built on a raised floor foundation,
providing residents an array of benefits such as aesthetic appeal, reduced risk of flooding and lasting comfort. Other attractive features of the townhouses include wood flooring, porches with railings and convenient parking.


The developer/builder Charles Morton, president of Morton Builders in Starkville, selected treated Southern Pine products to frame the raised floor foundation and for the porch flooring.


Inside, No.2 1×6 Southern Pine flooring is featured
in every room of the townhouses, enhancing overall decor and value. Each of the two-story units, built in row-house fashion, provides 1800 square feet of
living space.

SFPA is a nonprofit trade association that has represented manufacturers of Southern Pine lumber since 1915. Today, SFPA is the leading source of information about Southern Pine products for design-build professionals and consumers.
