The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Name:
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.

At the End of the Day

A very busy weekend to be sure. Easter was . . . let's just say that I've decided to call it "colorful." Why? Well, the location of the Easter Egg Hunt was determined by the conditions on someone's parole. Really, something about crossing county lines or something. Gotta love the in-laws that your in-laws don't really want to see.

But the weekend was colorful in other ways too.





Okay, sure. Most of that is white primer, so that isn't exactly colorful. But, it will be soon I hope. And, did I mention that I finished scraping down the living room and hall ceiling?
So much to do, so little time . . .

The beadboard ceilings can't be beat they are absolutely beautiful.

I've probably said it before, but the entertainment center you had built, rocks.

Thanks!

I really like the built-ins (even if they are a bitch to paint). I designed them and drew up the plans with a lot of input from Scarlet; Kenny brought them to life. They are the product of a good group effort.
