A home in Mont Albert Road, Surrey Hills in the French provincial style was decorated with French Provincial parapets, French Provincial window architraves, French provincial window sills, keystones and quoinings supplied and installed by the Finishing Touch.  Later two columns were added at the front and two columns at the back to give the house an even more elegant finish.

Another French Provincial style home, situated in Hudson Court, Ashburton was decorated with lightweight mouldings on the upper level of house and further enhanced with parapet mouldings,
window architraves, arches, feature keystones, window sills and stringer mouldings on the lower levels, resulting in a grand house indeed!
