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.

Edger? We Don’t Need No Stinking Edger!

I thought this was interesting enough to stand alone as a post. I’m definitely going to give it a try. Thanks Gary.

"Ditch the edger and buy a variable speed polisher/grinder. Cut the used drum sander paper into discs and use it to sand the edges. When you are done with the floors you can use the grinder to buff the car, wax the floors, polish concrete counters or even marble. At least that is what I do here at the crackhouse! I only have 3 floors left to sand. Six are done already. When you are done with the poly, rub the floor with superfine steel wool and wax polish. Then buff it. It will make dusting easier and the surface will feel much smoother but it will make it very slippery for a week."
