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.

Fireplace Disaster

I've had a few people ask about our non-fireplace. Here are some recent pictures of the mess.

The picture above is the wall between the bedroom closet & living room to the right of the fireplace. Notice how the studs are turned sideways to give you enough room for a coathanger in the closet.
Another view of the closet as see through the fireplace openning.

Another view of the closet & non-fireplace.

And, my plywood floor patch. We're still debating about what we want to do with this damn thing. For the bedroom side were thinking about a faux-fireplace with original mantel, tiled hearth and a metal fireplace cover.

As for the living room side. . .
