Pete Hardman was a painter and
decorator by trade, and he and his wife Karen lived in one of Brian See's flats on the seafront. He had done some
painting work in Brian See's flats, and that led to him being asked to help renovate Zimapan together with
Pete Prentice. Pete Hardman only helped with the renovations early on. Pete lived in Zimapan from Sep 1979
to Apr 1980; he started living there on his own first and Karin joined him later. The couple eventually moved to
Pete Prentice, however, did the majority of the work."This was a great opportunity for Pete, as he had been
struggling along from week to week bringing up three children. The Zimapan job ended up giving him three
years of regular work. Brian See used to send the money for materials (approx. £200) and wages (£100) each week
without fail, so "for once he had a regular job in his life".
