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.

The Tile is Finished

Sorry, no pictures of the finished product yet.

I don't know what has been up with blogger lately. Can't post half the time, can't leave comments, and what not. It is getting annoying.

Anyhow, Jake called last night, and our tile work will be completely finished as of Thursday. We're considering moving in this weekend. Since the tile work is finished, we now have a working shower. The most recent idea has been 1) finish painting the master bedroom ceiling, 2) install a ceiling fan in the master bedroom, 3) sand, stain, and seal the kitchen floor, 4) install a sink & toliet in the hall bathroom and 5) move in our bed, some clothes, and a few kitchen items.

And, since blogger won't let me comment on my own site, I'll answer my sister's question here. Most of the Queen's walls will be painted minus two walls in the dining room and the hall bath. I think we're leaning towards oiling the master bedroom walls and living with it for a while.

Another thought we've been entertaining is selling our bedroom suite and down sizing for something smaller. We're just sick of moving the damn things around.

Hi,
I tried to post the other day but I got kicked off. I just wanted to give my opinion about your cool wood walls in the bed room. I read somewhere that if you oil wood and then try to paint. That paint will not adhere to the surface very well. Why not shallac the wood and then if you decide to paint later on the shallac will act as a primer.
