In the year 2001, Klaus started to live in Ireland permanently. Karin who was still working would visit him frequently. During that period, many of Klaus’ sculptures were displayed inside and outside the house. But the majority was stored in a studio that was built on the site especially for that purpose, many remained in their crates until the Steinbrenners left Ireland in 2015.

Most of the sculptures that were displayed in- and outside the house were ‘adopted’ by Irish friends, the Steinbrenners kept only a few which were moved to Philadelphia and Tenerife.
