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 Zombie Files (Part 1)

Her are a some pictures of the laundry/bathroom. As you can see, the paint job is nearing completion.

Unfortunately, the ceiling was painted the wrong color. That was my fault. In my defense, when you are using leftover paint from another project and the label on the can has completely faded, mistakes happen. Apparently I gave the zombies "French Linen Gray" and not "Bamboo." On the upside, I think the color may work anyhow (it's lighter in person).

Still a little cutting in left to do around the edges. What can I say? Zombies work at their own pace.

Congrats! That's one good thing about not having high ceilings- we don't need ladders to paint.

Really, I don't mind the ladders so much, it's the obstacles (like the tub) that bother me.
