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.

In the Beginning

Sometimes it is good to step back from a project to get some perspective. Above is a picture of the Devil Queen's kitchen as it looked in the Summer of 2003. The cabinets were probably added sometime in the 1960's - early 1970's. To the left of the door (not in picture) is where the gas water heater was.

Below (in a seperate post since blogger wouldn't let me put all the pictures in a single one) are some pictures of the kitchen as it has progressed since the picture above was taken.
