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.

Three Doors and Some Beadboard

Do you need any?

We have two “normal” solid wood, four panel doors (with jambs & fixed transoms), one midget door (28” x 68”?), and a pile of old, salvage tongue in groove beadboard (3/4” thick, roughly 3” to 3 ¼” wide, and 18” to 5’ long). We don’t need it but we need the space. If any of you housebloggers are interested in our “treasures,” let us know. I can post pictures if you'd like.

Boy, sure wish I lived nearby. I have an odd size door opening at 28"x69" and it needs a door. I could use that door!!!

I wish you did too. I checked UPS to see what shipping would cost - DAMN! I hate to say it, but there is no way that door is worth $386.

Hey, the USPS won't ship something that big, but FedEx supposedly will. They something called FedEx Home Delievery which would cost somethingl like $22. I don't know if there are any additional fees, but I think that is it.

I thought, hey Arkansas isn't so far from Alabama - I'd sure love that beadboard. But no - it's 7 hours 40 minutes.

I could come by and pick up the bead board since you are on my route from Little Rock to Boxley. But how much do you have? How much do you want for it?

Oh. yeHAW! We have progress.

I'm not sure how much there is, I'll have to calculate that up tonight. I'll let you know.

As for what we want for it, we'd settle for finding it a good home. We didn't pay anything for it, so it's yours if you'll come for it.

I don't know if you need anything else, but you can dig through our treaure pile to see if there is anything else you want. For instance, we have half a roll of R-19 insulation.

I plan to use beadboard in the interior of the TinyCabin. I sure could use it if it matches the rest of the beadboard that is being milled up currently. Is that a possibility?

I wish I lived closer; I could REALLY use those doors. Sadly, you're just too far from Indiana. Move closer, dammit. LOL

I'm not sure if they'll match exactly. So far, all of our newly milled beadboard is about 1/4 of an inch thinner than the old beadboard (both the 1890 and 1940's stuff). If you were using it side by side, you'd have to shim it out. The facing is virtually identical, and Kenny suceeded in making it all work, so it is possible. It just depends how much entertainment you are looking for.

Old House Journal,

Sorry, I don't think my wife would go for it. If you ever get lost and find yourself in the neighborhood, stop by for the doors.
