Decorative Mouldings for Replica Maryborough Railway Station

r0_0_1729_1201_w1200_h678_fmax

The Finishing Touch generally supply decorative mouldings to house builds but every now and then something different crops up and this month we were asked to supply to a very different project. A replica railway station is being built in Harmony Court, Harcourt,Victoria. A network of rail lines is gradually spreading across the 65 acre Harcourt block, the ground work for miniature V/Line engines and small steam trains. They will set off from a half-size version of the impressive Maryborough station (pictured above artists’ impression). Eventually 24 kilometres of track will be laid, reperesenting a two hour round trip for tourists to the miniature railway.

The Finishing Touch supplied decorative mouldings for the build of the replica station, including French modern pier caps as chimneys, 45 metres of window sill, model # WS5, sized 130mm x 70mm, 120 metres of custom build flatband, sized 75mm x 30mm, for window architraves, 90 metres of flatband model # DGB100, sized 100mm x 20mm, for window reveals, 42 metres of quoining panel, model # Q200, sized 220mm x 30mm and 12 custom made decorative urns.

Using pier capsas chimneys on the replica building is novel, but there has also been a steady demand for pier caps for piers on fencing. Two builds were recently supplied with plain pier caps to suit 470mm x 470mm piers in Glen Waverley and Kew.

A 55 square French provincial residence in East Brighton was supplied with 208 metres of flatband mouldings, model # M120, sized 120mm x 130mm for the window architraves, 208 metres of parapet mouldings, model # P8155, sized 155mm x 120mm, 28 keystones model # Key220, 220ml high for each window and 82 metres of window sill, model # WS9, sized 160mm x 90mm.

The Finishing Touch continue to supply quality, decorative mouldings to Melbourne builders for residences being constructed in the suburbs of Melbourne. They also ship decorative mouldings to builders in country Victoria and interstate on occasion. They have built a strong reputation for supply of reliable, long lasting, light weight products that ensure a spectacular finish to any build.

For example, this year, in September, Finishing Touch supplied decorative mouldings for parapets, eaves, window architraves and window sills for a build of two French provincial style townhouses, 30 squares each, in Camberwell. They also supplied a grand French provincial, two storey, 45 square home in Taylors Hills with three different types of French provincial parapets, window architraves and window sills as well as eight window arches and two tapered columns for the front entrance with Tuscan capitals and Doric bases.

This build in Templestowe illustrates how extra flair can be created with the addition of other decorative mouldings, such as stringer mouldings, quoinings and chimney mouldings

In addition to the more usual parapet eave mouldings, French provincial window architraves and French provincial window sills. Rivets and a keystone attached to the arched window above the entrance gave a further dimension of elegance.
