At The Painted Fish
Over the years, Tim and Shani have completed many renovations to existing homes to make them more sustainable and builts small dwellings from scratch.
Projects at their initial property The Painted Fish include a cottage, studio and railway carriage. The renovation of the property’s initial tin cottage made it much easier to heat and cool, while maintaining its heritage charm. The solar passive iron and glass studio have proved especially popular, with many guests copying the design. And the railway cottage provides people with a good example of what can be done in a very small space. All three dwellings are on a 495 square metre block, demonstrating that high density housing does not have to be high rise.
While the Painted Fish has now been sold, you can still have a virtual stroll through the place by looking at the information about how we reduced our energy and water use, dealt with waste issues and redesigned our transport options.
