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.

Here are a few new pictures of the Devil Queen. First, we have the Jacuzzi bathtub in the mudroom/laundry.

Second, we have the marble tiled kitchen counter with a thin band of wood trim.

Third we have the hall bathroom shower and floor.

And, did I mention that we've had a real front step of sorts for about a week now? No more concrete blocks stacked in a wobbly tower of death for us. It's a bit unconventional, but we have our reasons (like the main sewer line). Just wait until we get to landscaping everything. We're hoping to make it blend seemlessly into the garden.

Great tile work! We could totally use that guy to help us finish the basement.

I love the blue tile floor in the bathroom! I guess I came home one week too earlier - now all the exciting stuff is happening. : )

Hurray! I love progress pics! Makes me daydream of the day I'll actually be able to show some. ;)
