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.

Weekend Survivors

Sorry that I haven’t posted in a few days. We’ve had some unpleasant, non-Devil Queen related things that have required our attention. In addition to that, we had a busy, bizarre, and utterly exhausting weekend.

Here are some pictures proving that actual progress has been made over the last week or so. Once I catch up on my sleep and regain my bearings, I’ll give you the full rundown of the weekend.

The "bread box" cabinet with its door propped in front of it.

The walls of the laundry/mudroom/bath have been sheetrocked.

The kitchen stove in its proper place.

Sheet rock, over sink light mounts, and "bead board" in the master bathroom.

The master bathroom again.
