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.

Light Her Up

Julian Electric is still at work. I’m glad we went with the 200 AMP service for the Queen. She’s 100% electric and you can tell. We only have four slots left and I think there are one or two more circuits that need to be tied in to it.
And, here is our new, over-the-sink light. Not a period piece, but I still like it. We found this on the clearance rack at Lowe’s several months ago. The colors even match the kitchen (hard to tell in the photo - it's white with purple and sand colored swirls).

Here are the salvaged sconces in the foyer.

They still haven’t finished everything, but it is getting very close. Very exciting.
