A French provincial home of fifty squares situated at Gwenda Avenue, Canterbury will look resplendent with two columns 3 metres high, each with a diameter of 400 mm, set upon Tuscan bases and topped with Tuscan capitals, all supplied by the Finishing Touch.
The decorative finish to the build and French provincial style was achieved with the addition of 72 metres of French provincial under gutter moulding, model # PE 70, sized 70mm x 70mm, 127 metres of French provincial parapet moulding, model # P4160, sized 160mm x 160mm, and for the thirty three windows 245 metres of French provincial window architraves, model # W1100, sized 100mm x 45mm and 19 metres of window sills, model # WSR15, sized 135mm x 185mm. Further decoration was added with 49 metres of quoining panel, model # Q300, 320mm x 30mm. Finishing Touch decorative mouldings can be viewed here.
The DAP system is highly recommended for adhering the lightweight decorative moulds to the building, and the Finishing Touch supplied thirteen Touch’n’Seal cans for this build.
