Two units at 94 Forrester Street, Essendon are being built in the French Provincial style. The units total sixty squares, each unit being thirty squares. The first floor boasts a number of lightweight decorative mouldings supplied by the Finishing Touch, creating a quality finish, in the French Provincial style. Under gutter mouldings and eave mouldings are around the full perimeter of the upper storey.  The units are mirrored with two entrances next to each other, with a long parapet over the centre porch.

Custom made French Provincial window architraves and French Provincial windowsills decorate the windows.  The upper windows are further enhanced with decorative arch mouldings. The ground floor of this unit block has matching smaller parapet mouldings at this lower level with stringers 400mm below to match.

A sixty square, two storey home in Glen Waverley is currently under development. This house will also be built in the popular French Provincial style.  A grand entrance is to be created with the use of a porch structure, columns, decorative mouldings and a balcony above the entrance. Large parapets with dentil mouldings will feature above the porch whilst an arch moulding on the balcony window above the entrance adds pizazz.  The columns will be constructed in brick and dressed with decorative column mouldings, with capitals and base being rendered.

Between the top and bottom storey levels large parapet mouldings will add interest, whilst French Provincial window architraves and matching window sills will decorate the windows. Eave mouldings will complete the finish to this striking home.

A modern thirty five square, double storey home at 14A John Street, Oakleigh will have a handsome finish with flatband mouldings from the Finishing Touch in two sizes 162 x 20 and 110 x 20, across the front of the building.
