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.

More Moldering Wallpaper and Drywall in the Rear Hall

Here are a few more pictures from the last couple of weeks.

First, we have more remnants of the original wallpaper from my son’s bedroom to be.

And, here is picture of our rear hall with most of the drywall up. Kenny left the bottom sheet of drywall off so we can finish wiring the outlets for the refrigerator and trash compactor. Originally, this wall was going to be done in beadboard, but we ran out of it. We’re too cheap and too poor to buy some more, so we’ve settled on drywall. My wife had the intriguing idea of making a wainscoting out of an old section of wrought-iron fencing for this wall. Sounds weird, but I think it would look good if we did it right.
