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.

Siding the Hall Bathroom

Here is a picture of the newly sided hall bathroom. I'm still amazed by how much bigger this coffin of a room looks with the ceilings raised back up to 12 feet.

It think that it looks pretty good except for one thing, some of the siding boards are primed with a coat of Kiltz. This is my fault since I didn't specifically tell Kenny to turn the primed sides to the wall. So, about half of these boards are white. Once upon a time, we'd thought about painting the bathroom, but my wife had the idea of oiling the wood instead.

So, in addition to everything else on my to-do list, I will now be adding sanding & stripping all the primed boards in the hall bath. My wildest dreams have now been fulfilled! More sanding! Yes!
