In colonial times, raised-floor foundations were the choice of home builders. Now, more than 200 years later, the Southern Pine Council is reacquainting American builders with the same advantages the system offered pioneers.

A new color brochure includes basic information about what constitutes a raised floor accompanied by architectural photography of homes constructed with the method.
