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.

Incase you’re wondering how the Memorial Day Weekend went for us, it blew. Too much stuff, too few boxes, too little time, and, for the final act, it rained. On the upside, once the veritable shit-storm was over, things seemed to have settled down okay. Well, sort of. We’re in tenuous holding pattern until we can begin moving into the Devil Queen. God help us, I’m hoping to pull that off in one to two weeks.

Collectively, there were two nervous break downs, starvation, exhaustion, delusions, and dementia. Great weekend. Most of it was my fault, and the only thing saving me from my stupidity is that I’m a real hard worker. And, I have some very generous, hard working in-laws too (thanks Jack, you own me).
