The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Painting at Last

I've been hoping that we'd get to this point for weeks, but we are going to start painting our kitchen. Tonight, I'm going to work on the mural until it's too dark to see. Then I'll head up to the Devil Queen and help my wife paint the kitchen. I can't wait.

I'm not sure how the rest of the weekend will go. Saturday will be split between painting the Queen, painting the mural, and maybe laying the kitchen floor. Sunday will probably be more of the same. I figure if I'm persistent enough I'll actually finish a few major projects for a change.
