Creating A Grand Entrance
Columns create a grand entrance to a home and the Finishing Touch have supplied columns and other mouldings to homes built this year to help create an impressive entrance. A house in Tuck Street, Cheltenham has a distinctive entrance with three columns, each 3 metres tall, by 200mm in diameter, whilst a grand façade was created for a large Georgian replica house in Treevalley Drive, East Doncaster. The portico in front of the entrance boasts columns with feature panels and more decoration in the form of large feature corbels at the top of the portico. An outstanding panel over the entranceway (on the top storey) is a moulding with large roman numerals XV11 for the street number.
A post-modern double storey fifty square house at Ruby Place, Donvale boasts feature mouldings above the doorway resembling two curved picture frames, sitting above the entrance that has an arched effect, created by a larger flatband moulding measuring 200mm x 25mm. A very stylish home in Bendigo has a most impressive entrance with arch mouldings, rivet mouldings and a decorative keystone clasp above the arch and two lions’ heads sitting above the keystone . You can’t get much grander than that! All created with lightweight mouldings.
Adding An Extra Dimension Outdoors
During the year, there were a number of houses built that also called on the Finishing Touch to supply mouldings to decorate the outdoor areas. For example a house built in Soderlund Drive, Doncaster then needed extra mouldings manufactured to match the house mouldings for the fence. Sixty metres of wall capping and eight pier caps created an integrated finish.
Two years ago house mouldings were supplied to a two storey home of fifty squares in Polo Parade, Caulfield North and this year approximately thirty metres of new mouldings were required to go around the pool area. A combination of parapets 200mm x 200mm in size and stringer mouldings, each measuring 140mm x 140mm were supplied to decorate the pool area.
The Finishing Touches That Make A House Stand Out
A gorgeous Georgian style house at 51 Hoskin Street, North Balwyn was so splendid it drew the second highest sale price for a house ever in North Balwyn at $4.1M. The Finishing Touch helped achieve the grand finish to this home supplying quality lightweight mouldings for parapets, corbels, window architraves, window headers, window sills, stringers and pier caps, as well as moulded letters to decorate the house.
