Window to the soul

Written by: Christina Kleiner

Kathie Havemann started collecting books 30 years ago. Today, her collection stands at around 4,700 and includes a wide range of nonfiction. As her collections grew over the past few decades, Kathie’s house appeared to grow smaller.  In 2009 Kathie decided to embark on a new chapter in her life. It started as a simple kitchen and master bathroom remodel, but turned into a transformation of her entire house and her life. She turned to Erich and Kelly Eggers, owners of Remodeling Designs and interior designer Beth Spegal, owner of House Dressing Interior Design, to help her create the perfect new home.
