The annual Tri Kappa Christmas Home Tour is gearing up for another year of yuletide cheer.

The third home featured this year is the home of Paul and Amy Schorr.

The home is a four-level tudor style home.

It was built in 1937 and provides 2,800-square feet of living space. The Schorrs are the fourth owners of the home.

The dining room of the Schorr home is ready for company and decorated in white and silver. The Schorr's home will be available for touring Sunday.
The living room holds a live Christmas tree. The ornaments on the tree are traditional family pieces.

Overstuffed furniture in a muted floral fabric and cream paint give the room a comfy feel. Opposite is a gas fireplace. The hard wood floors throughout are original to the home. Through the living room is the sun room, a perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon. A collection of Santa items are showcased here.

The dining room is set with Amy's mother's wedding china. The white and silver of the table setting are also showcased on a tree in the corner. Beyond the dining room is the quaint kitchen. The homeowners remodeled the kitchen to add more storage space. A breakfast nook welcomes all just off the kitchen.

Following a hallway out of the kitchen leads past a half bath. The bathroom showcases original tile flooring. Past the bathroom is the door that leads to the basement. The basement is home to the school room. Amy home schools the couple's boys, Lucas and Carter. Computers, workspace and tons of books await the next day's lessons.

The third floor is home to the boys' bedroom. The boys share the largest of the three bedrooms. The room is decorated in football and wild cats. Each half reflects one of the boys. The guest room is also on this level. The cozy guest room furniture is a family heirloom from Amy's grandmother.

The full bath on the floor features original sink and tile floor. The homeowners added a Jacuzzi tub and black granite surround to the bathroom. The bathroom is surprisingly spacious and feels sumptuous.

The master bedroom is open and airy. The metal bed sits in the center. It is topped with a comfortable bedspread.

The fourth floor is accessed from the bedroom. Located at the top of a small staircase is a sitting area and a large walk-in closet.

Plenty of built-in shelves and desk space house books and mementos. Black armchairs make for a quiet retreat. The walk-in closet is behind a curtain. Built-in rods, shelves and drawers provide plenty of storage for the couple.

The home tour will take place Dec. 4, from 1-5 p.m. The homes of Dr. Charles and Susie French, Mitch and Jessica Clausen and Kevin and Anne Wilkey will also be on display.

Tickets are available at the main branch of Riddell National Bank. Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at any home the day of the event.
