Often the Finishing Touch are kept busy supplying French provincial decorative mouldings for the ever popular architectural style. But last week Edwardian pier caps and wall capping seemed to be most in demand.
A builder in Kiama, NSW was supplied with six custom sized Edwardian pier caps. Four were sized at 440mm x 400 mm whilst two were 640mm x 640mm. Another builder was supplied with six Edwardian pier caps, sized 600mm x 600mm and 7.8 metres of Edwardian wall capping, 240mm wide for a build of a post-modern home in Malvern. 120 metres of flatband decorative mouldings, model # DGB075, sized at 75mm x 20mm also lifted the finish for this home.
A house in Evans Road, Kew is being renovated by the owner. Old decorative mouldings on the building from twenty years ago now need replacing. The Finishing Touch supplied 9.6 metres of parapet mouldings, model # P8300, sized at 300mm x 235mm and 36 meters of parapet mouldings, model # P8200, sized at 200mm x 155m. Six custom made Edwardian pier caps, sized 500mm x 500mm and 9.6 metres of custom made Edwardian wall capping, 260mm wide give an elegant finish to fencing, whilst 24 metres of stringer mouldings, model # M22, sized at 100mm x 45mm help decorate the al fresco pool area.
A post-modern, 2 storey house in Keysborough features faux weatherboard panels on the top storey with brickwork underneath. Bricks are rendered immediately below the weatherboard panels and exposed on the bottom section. Flatband decorative mouldings, model # DGB1003, sized 100mm x 30mm were supplied to be used as a stringer at the junction of the rendered brick and exposed brickwork.
An owner/builder needed eight custom designed columns, each 1700 mm high by 450mm diameter together with Doric bases and Tuscan capitals for a home in Reservoir, which will create a splendid façade. Ninety metres of window architraves, model # W19D, sized 120mm x 55mm completes the decorative finish.
