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.

Rim Lock Eye Candy

This rim lock recently sold on eBay for $46 plus shipping. Iron with brass wash finish. Good stuff.

Very purdy. To me it should be black. all the rim locks I've ever seen were black.

Yow! I would easily pay $46 for that baby, and my house doesn't even use rim locks!

Beautiful lock!
I'm seeing a lot of stuff being brass washed lately. Makes it look cheap somehow.
I agree with poppy on the black.

Man, that's gorgeous. $46 for a rim lock is a little too rich for my blood, but if one come up again I'd half consider it. Which is saying a heck of a lot for a cheapskate like me.
