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.

Purging the Back Log

Here are a couple of photos from two weeks ago. Life got in the way, and I forgot to post them. Not too gripping. First, the door jamb I "tweeked" with a hammer and chisel for about an hour. The weird part was the door fit with room to spare before we painted everything. After we painted it? Not even close to fitting, and the paint alone can not account for the difference. It's like the whole world swelled.

And here we have some quarter round I mitered with one of those $14 plastic miter sets you can get a Lowe's or Walmart. Not bad for $14.
