Shawn and Michelle Haupert will open the doors of their rural Andrews home to visitors on Sunday, Oct. 14, during the Tri Kappa Housewalk.

The Haupert house, one of five sites on the tour, is home to the Hauperts, their three young daughters and a pole barn full of goats - a daddy-daughter project that next year will become the oldest daughter's 4-H project.

The home overlooks a pond bordered by the driveway.

The foyer leads to a dining room and living room, all showing the interior design touch of Michelle, an obstetrical nurse at Lutheran Hospital.

The living room windows offer a panoramic view of the back yard, with a fireplace providing a cozy gathering space. The kitchen, decorated in a fruit motif, includes custom cabinets and custom stenciling on the walls. There is a laundry room off the kitchen.

Framed family photos decorate the hallway between the living room and bedroom, which is decorated in beige and black. The bedroom features a tray ceiling and is completed by a master bathroom and closet.

A handcrafted staircase leads to the daughters' bedrooms, all decorated in pinks and purples and accented with butterflies and quilts. In addition to the three bedrooms, the second floor features a full bath and a small office area.

The basement is home to a family room, a scrapbook room for Michelle and a play area for the girls and their friends.

Double patio doors lead from the first-floor kitchen to the back yard, where the goats make their home in the pole barn.

The Haupert home, located at 5659N-900W, Andrews, is one of five locations featured in the housewalk.

Other stops on the housewalk are the home of Donna Hedrick, 3755 W. Division Rd., Huntington; the home of Bob and Abbey Bolen, 2834N-300E, Huntington; the home of Mike and Stacy Haggerty, 8663S-200E, Warren; and the Roanoke Coil Factory, 314 N. Main St., Roanoke.

All five locations will be open from noon to 6 p.m. on Oct. 14.

Advance tickets are available at a discounted price at Dorothy's Hallmark, in Huntington, or by calling 358-6190 or 356-8804. Full-price tickets may be purchased the day of the housewalk at any of the five locations.
