Some time after establishing The Painted Fish, the property at 21 Hulbert Street came up for sale. Despite a block size of only 213 square metres, we decided to buy “the little blue house” as it was so close to our business. And another round of renovations began!
We called this house Shimtani – the nickname one of the kids in the street used to call us – Shani was Shim and Tim was Tani – hence Shimtani!
Below are some information sheets about this project. What is hard to articulate is the blood sweat and tears that went into this house, as again we renovated it as we were living in it!
