Stone wool insulation is made in large part from volcanic rock. Stone wool insulation is incredibly durable and will last the lifetime of the building. Because stone doesn’t burn, this insulation is incredibly fire-resistant. It is also tremendously effective in keeping out noise, again because of it’s rock-based properties. Stone wool insulation has nearly unmatched capabilities in shielding from weather temperatures, fire and noise.

Attention to moulding can make the difference between a basic, bland room and an attractive room. Crown moulding is the moulding found at the top of rooms and thus is usually applied along the seams where ceiling meets wall. The right kind of crown moulding can add elegance and the illusion of height to the tops of your rooms. Base moulding is applied along the bottom of the room, where the walls meet the floor. Casing is the trims that covers the gap around the outside of a door.
Still Lumber offers all these types of moulding, plus many more. Still also offers a variety of moulding styles and colors. Check out Still’s selection of moulding and interior trim boards to choose the right styles that will add height, depth and elegance to your rooms.

Pressure treating wood (typically Southern Pine) involves infusing chemical preservatives (most commonly Alkaline Copper Quaternary Copper Azole, and Micronized Copper Quaternary) into the wood. The process forces a chemical preservative deep into the wood. The wood product is placed into a large cylinder holding tank, and the tank is depressurized. The tank is then filled with the preservative under high pressure, forcing it deeply into the wood. The wood is removed from the tank and prepared for shipment. At Still Lumber we make sure you have the best quality and cut of pressure treated wood.
This process makes the wood unappetizing to termites and most other kinds of bugs and withstands decay better than normal wood. Wood for most outdoor projects should be pressure-treated to ensure longevity as it can last 20 years or more. Many use pressure treated wood for their decks, gazebos, boardwalks and other wooden outdoor structures.
The new treatments used on pressure treated wood are now safe to be used in gardens since the American Wood Preservers' Association (AWPA) has modified its standards, based on public concern. Some may prefer the cedar wood for their gardens or outdoor projects as cedar lumber is naturally resistant to insects and wood decay. At Still Lumber we carry both.

It is important to consider the area and the plants that you wish to have in your garden. Raised garden boxes can be for flowers, herbs or vegetables.
Cedar wood is most popular as it is naturally water resistant and does not contain the chemicals used to preserve other types of wood. (Pressure treated wood is now made with more environmentally-safe materials now and can be used for your project as well.) Here are a few tips to consider before starting:
- Select the area carefully with lots of sun exposure
- Make sure you have a water supply close by
- The area should be level
- If you plan more than one box, make sure you leave at least two feet between each box
- Make sure the size of your box is such that you can access it without the need to get into the garden.
- Use the proper fasteners and hardware for the lumber that you select
