Carol J. Klima


Carol J. Klima resides in North Ridgeville, Ohio, with her husband, a retired sheet metal worker. The couple has two married children and 7 grandchildren. They live in a self-contained in-law suite attached to their son's home.

When first considering the option of building an in-law suite, Klima found no suitable plans. After going through the step-by-step process, she decided to share her floor plans and expertise with others in book form to help them avoid some common problems.

She attributes her ability to design floor plans to her experiences as a professional housecleaner and organizer for 25 years. She frequently speaks at community meetings and trade shows.
