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.

Voodoo Contracting (II)

I was telling my wife about Gary’s idea for Houseblogger uniforms last night. She had her own suggestion, this on a T-shirt.

The text is too small to read. It says, "When Patience and Good Manners Don't Get the Job Done, VOODOO CONTRACTING."

Lets face it, dabbling with a little black magic isn't such a bad thing when you have a house to finish. Right?

Last August, I had a pipe burst (in the house I just sold to buy my new project...). It took the contractor from hell 6 MONTHS to finish the job - they wouldn't work unless I called and yelled every day... I should have tried voodoo!!! Why didn't I think of that!!!
