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.

Waiting for a Wet Down

So close yet so far away. Jake, our tile guy, was out working on the shower SUNDAY. Here is a picture of the shower as of Sunday night.

I’m guessing that he’ll finish tiling the walls and the floor today. Then, I figure he’ll tile the hot tubs back splash Tuesday. That means he should spend Wednesday grouting everything, which means all our tile work should be finished.

Since I’m a camera retard and my wife is the camera guru, she was supposed to take some good pictures of the kitchen tile work. I keep over or under exposing the pictures, so the tile looks like crap. This is a very sad thing for me. The actual tile looks beautiful, but you’d never know looking at my pictures. The Mrs. was busy last night so no kitchen eye candy. Sorry.
