The Devil Queen

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

My Photo
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.

Ceiling Repairs

Here are some photos of Kenny's most recent work. The first photo is somewhat anti-climatic. There use to be two whole rows of missing boards behind the light bulb. If I were diligent, I would have found some before pictures. But, I'm feeling lazy today, so sorry. Believe me when I say that this looks tons better.

In the next photo, the two rows on the far right were pulled down when the house was cut in half for the move.

Below is where he spliced in 4 boards to cover the hole left by the old woodcook stove chimney. Once we paint it, you shouldn't even be able to tell that it was there.
