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.

A Few Words

Sorry for the lack of recent posts. We’ve been incredibly busy and selfishly decedent (work hard, play hard), and I haven’t had time. I hope to make up for it this week. I’d like of give a belated congratulations to all of you who were featured in the Washington Post’s Houseblog article (old news, I know). I’d also like to thank Expatriate Aaron for the kind words and humorous email. And, I’d also like to make a shameless plug for my sister’s fiancé. He is a sous chief for an extremely nice restaurant in Boston. He recently was featured in the Boston Globe. Congratulations Matt!

If I don’t wuss out this week, I hope to answer all of Kristin’s questions regarding Rabbi the Kosher Kitty, Eureka Springs, AR, clawfoot tubs, chandeliers, wood flooring on the cheap, our stolen tools, Kenny & Burt, appraisals, and the Devil Queen in all her infernal glory.

Wish me luck.
